Additional antifungal herbs and ingredients that you may want to explore:

  • Pau d’Arco: A tree bark that has been traditionally used in South America for its antifungal properties. We recommend Pau D’arco tea.
  • Tea tree oil: While used topically for various fungal skin infections, it should not be ingested. Best for skin related candida issues.
  • Cinnamon: Especially Cinnamomum verum, has antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties. Best to sprinkle a little on your morning shake.
  • Turmeric (Curcumin): Known for its anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric also has antifungal effects. We recommend turmeric & ginger tea.

While many of these herbs and ingredients are available in various forms, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any treatment. Some herbs can interact with medications or have potential side effects when used in high doses or for prolonged periods.

Question: what are some natural remedies for extreme genital yeast infections?

If you suspect you have a genital yeast infection, it’s crucial to consult with a healthcare professional to get a proper diagnosis and guidance on treatment.

Below are some natural remedies that you can try:

  • Yogurt: Some women find relief by applying plain, unsweetened yogurt directly to the vaginal area or consuming it regularly. The probiotics in yogurt can help restore the natural balance of good bacteria in the vagina.
  • Garlic: Some people insert a garlic clove directly into the vagina, as garlic has known antifungal properties. However, inserting garlic into the vagina can cause irritation for some individuals.
  • Coconut Oil: This oil has antifungal properties and can be applied directly to the affected area.
  • Boric Acid: Boric acid suppositories are available and have been used to treat yeast infections. They should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional and are not suitable for pregnant women.
  • Probiotics: Oral or vaginal probiotic supplements can help to restore the natural bacterial balance in the vagina.
  • Oil of Oregano: It has antifungal properties, but it should be diluted before use and applied externally.
  • Calendula: Creams or ointments containing calendula may offer relief due to its anti-inflammatory and antifungal properties.
  • Aloe Vera: Gel from the aloe vera plant can be soothing when applied to irritated skin, but it’s essential to ensure it’s pure aloe without added ingredients that could cause further irritation.

When trying natural remedies, it’s crucial to be aware of potential irritations or allergic reactions. Always test a small amount of any substance on your skin before applying it to sensitive areas. Additionally, if symptoms persist, worsen, or recur frequently, you should see a healthcare provider. Chronic or recurring infections can be indicative of an underlying health issue or a resistant strain of yeast.
