Most women will end up with the familiar burning, itching sensation of a yeast infection several times during a lifetime. This infection, caused by an overgrowth of Candida Albicans (a type of intestinal yeast) can be spurred by diet, tight clothing, birth control pills, antibiotics, and women with diabetics.
If this is your first yeast infection, it’s important to visit your doctor for an accurate diagnosis before you take treatment into your own hands. However, if you’re prone to yeast infections, you can try to balance the ph levels in your body with these ten effective treatments…
1. Plain Yogurt
One of the most effective home remedies for restoring the beneficial bacteria in your body is by eating and treating a yeast infection using plain (no sugar added) yogurt. You can either start eating plain yogurt on a regular basis as a preventative measure, and/or treat a nasty infection by actually dipping a tampon into plain yogurt and inserting it into the vagina. The beneficial lactobacillus acidophilus cultures in the yogurt will kill yeast overgrowth and reduce your chances of getting another infection.
