How to Treat a Yeast Infection Naturally





Please consult a medical professional before starting any alternative treatments. This is considered a preventative/proactive measure as well as a treatment method.
If you are particularly sensitive or resistant to the medications available for the treatment of yeast infections, this may help.

  Steps

  1.   Buy some natural yogurt, unsweetened with active cultures. You can find this at most any grocery store.
  2.   Pick up a children's dose medicine syringe from a pharmacy. Make sure it is the larger sized, for bigger doses. They do not come with needles.
  3.   At home, put some of the yogurt into a cup and refrigerate the rest.
  4.   Fill the syringe with 1-2Tbsp of yogurt.
  5.   In the bathroom, position yourself as if you were to insert a tampon.
  6.   Insert the syringe slowly into the vagina as far as is comfortable.
  7.   Dispense all the yogurt inside the vagina.
  8.   Be sure to wash out the syringe with soap and water and allow it to dry thoroughly.
  9.   Apply twice a day, especially before bedtime.

  Tips

  • WASH HANDS THOROUGHLY both before and after this procedure.
  • If the infection is particularly bothersome, use more yogurt as it will both cool the burning and apply more of the active cultures to the infection.
  • If the treatment seems messy, feel free to use pantyliners or pads during duration.
  • EAT yogurt with active cultures twice a day during this treatment. It will help re-introduce the good bacteria your body needs by internal and external measures.
  • *  This is also a good, FAST way to re-balance your pH during times of stress.
