We’re going to discuss the benefits and application of Pau D’arco in addressing vaginal yeast infections. Pau D’arco is considered one of the most effective herbs for yeast infections. It can be consumed internally as a tea or taken as a dietary supplement. In our book, Candida Crusher, we mention the significance of using a high-grade Pau D’arco extract in conjunction with other beneficial ingredients. Additionally, Pau D’arco is efficient for nail fungal treatments and particularly effective for vaginal yeast infections, also known as thrush.
To utilize Pau D’arco for a yeast infection, ensure you acquire a high-quality product. Look for one with a Lapachol content between two to five percent, as Lapachol is the active ingredient in Pau D’arco. Unfortunately, there are many inferior products in the market that may not provide the desired effect.
Here’s a simple method for application:
- Acquire one tablespoon of Pau D’arco bark or powder. If using high-grade capsules, open them to fill a level tablespoon.
- Place the Pau D’arco in a saucepan with approximately 600 milliliters of cold, high-quality water.
- Bring the mixture to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer for about half an hour, allowing the mixture to reduce slightly.
- After brewing, let it cool to a lukewarm temperature. Soak a tampon in the solution and insert it, leaving it in overnight.
This treatment can be repeated nightly leading up to the menstrual cycle. For persistent and severe yeast infections, alternating between Pau D’arco and boric acid treatments, particularly before the menstrual cycle, can be beneficial. Pau D’arco tampon treatment has been found effective for many, especially those with mild to moderate yeast infections.
Disclaimer: While Pau D’arco has been found beneficial by many, it is essential to consult with your healthcare professional before starting any new treatment.
