Acidophillus as Natural Cure for Candida Yeast Infection

There is a beneficial bacteria that lives in our gut called acidophilus.  It is widely thought to inhibit excessive bloom of candida albicans yeast in the body.  It does this by creating a more acidic environment in the digestive tract and also by making hydrogen peroxide which kills candida directly.  Clinical studies have demonstrated that taking a probiotic supplement of an acidophilus strain that makes hydrogen peroxide, DDS-1, significantly lowered the occurrence of candida yeast infections that were brought on as a result of taking antibiotics.  Acidophilus also helps support a proper balance of other microbes in the gut.



MMS or Master Mineral Solution is the most powerful anti-candida, antibiotic and antiviral compound ever discovered. It is simple, cheap and commonly available. Millions have used it successfully - not toxic to human cells, only the pathogens. Take this for stopping infection, removing the pain and inflammation. Go here to find out about MMS.



Fiber as Natural Treatment for Candida

Twice a day, take a tablespoon of soluble fiber such as pectin, flaxseeds, psyllium husks or guar gum.  This should be taken with an 8 ounce glass of water.  The fiber helps to flush the candida from the large interstion.  With regards to the colon, psyllium is often referred to as Nature's broom.  Don’t drink tap water if it has chlorine or fluoride in it as both are highly toxic and weaken the body. This is one of the most effective natural cures for Candida yeast infection.


Enteric Coated Essential Oils as Natural Cure for Candida Yeast Infection

Several essential oils when taken in the form of enteric coated capsules, are considered by many to be highly effective in preventing and curing excessive Candida over growth.  The most commonly recommended oils are peppermint oil and oil of oregano.  A normal dose is to take 2 capsules twice a day with water in between meals.  Pure volatile oils can be very toxic when taken in these amounts so the straight liquid oil should never be taken.  One should take care not to rupture the capsules before taking.   The oils must have the enteric coating so they release in the large intestine and not in the stomach or small intestine. 


Enteric Coated Garlic as Natural Cure for Candida Yeast Infection

Enteric coated garlic can be taken as 1 capsule twice daily. Other effective substances are pau d’arco, oregano oil, oleic acid from olive oil and caprylic acid which is derived from coconuts.  There are also a number of herbal remedies that have combinations of these.


Caprylic Acid as Natural Treatment for Candida

Caprylic acid is one of the more commonly prescribed natural treatments for Candida yeast infections.  This substance naturally occurs in butter fat, palm oil, coconut oil and also human breast milk.  It is widely regarded to have anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties.  Perhaps this is one reason Mother Nature thought to include it in human breast milk.  Many natural health practitioners have had outstanding results with caprylic acid and categorize it as an excellent natural cure for Candida.  The substance must be taken in a capsule that has an enteric coating so that it reaches the large intestine intact. Otherwise it will be absorbed in the small intestine prior to reaching the large intestine. Caproyl is a formulation of psyllium husk, safflower oil (another anti-fungal) and caprylic acid that is used as a natural treatment for Candida.  The psyllium “sweeps” the colon discharging the buildup of Candida.


Honey Natural Cure for Candida

Here is a good natural cure home remedy for Candida rash.  On the affected area of skin, coat with a generous amount of raw honey.  Allow the honey to soak into the skin for approximately five minutes.  Take a bath or shower to wash the honey off.  Wait for two hours and then apply plain live yogurt (it must say live culture on the container) over the area.  Wait four hours and then draw a bath with hot water and add a half cup of raw apple cider vinegar.  Soak in this for about 20 minutes.  In three hours after the bath, mash up raw garlic so you can apply it as a paste to your rash.  You can get an inexpensive garlic press for this.  It will burn some.  Remove the garlic after about 30 minutes.  You will get tremendous relief from your itching in about 12 hours.  After that, apply tea tree oil to the skin rash in the morning and afternoon.  At night apply garlic.  Do this for about 5 days and this will put an end to your Candida rash. This is one of the best natural remedies for Candida.


Immune System Strength as Natural Remedy for Candida Yeast Infection

Candida Albicans (yeast) thrives on sugar.  Avoid all forms of sugar and that includes fruit, honey and molasses.  Stay away from refined carbohydrates like white flour.  Yeast lives naturally in and on our bodies.  It is kept under control by our immune systems and other beneficial bacteria that live in our bodies and our guts. If your immune system is not in good order you can get a yeast infection.  Also, if you take antibiotics, it will destroy the good bacteria in your gut and you can get a yeast infection.  Some of the ways the infection may surface include skin rash, vaginal yeast infection or thrush.  Or, it may not surface but rather be exploding in your gut, flowing out through your intestines and creating bad allergic immune responses and these symptoms can be different for different people.  The big home remedy for Candida is to get your immune system humming and take probiotics (buy it at the health food store) to replenish the good bacteria.  The average resident of the US eats over 160 pounds of sugar each year!  This is ten times too much.  Because our western diet is so poor, many of us have compromised immune systems.  It is well known that eating sugar partially paralyzes the immune system for up to 5 hours.  This is also why diabetics have such a problem with infections of all types.  Their high blood sugar dampens their immune system.  The allopathic drugs for Candida cause liver damage plus they don’t do anything to eliminate the cause.  Instead take Beta Glucan which is the most important immune enhancer ever discovered.  Got to “youngagain dot com” to buy this – it is inexpensive.  Use the option for a free book and get What Is Beta Glucan by Roger Mason. 


Tea Tree Oil Natural Cure for Candida Thrush

A good Candida thrush natural remedy is to mix 8 drops of tea tree oil in a glass of warm water.  Gargle the concoction for one minute.  Be sure to allow the mixture to flow to and coat all parts of the mouth including the palate, cheeks, throat and crevices between the gums and cheeks.  Do not swallow the mixture.  Gargle this twice a day once on arising and before going to bed. 


Diet as Natural Remedy for Candida Yeast Infection

In order to get rid of your Candida yeast infection, the first primary thing to do is take responsibility for your own health.  A yeast infection is really quite common.  3 out 4 women will have this painful annoyance and possibly dangerous chronic condition.  So we have to educate ourselves.  The first thing to understand is the yeast infection is not a localized surface problem.  It is not.  Candida is a symptom of a broader, deeper systemic problem in the body and so creams and antibiotics will not provide a satisfactory long term cure.  Don’t leave this in the hands of your doctors – all they know is drugs, drugs, drugs. Instead, educate yourself. There are very good cheap, natural, safe, alternatives that will cure the root cause of the disease and thereby get rid of the symptoms for good. There are dietary issues we have to understand and there is a self-test we can perform in order to arrive at a Candida free environment within our bodies. There is a really good e-book you can get called Yeast Infection No More written by Linda Allen a Naturopath that reveals all of this in great clarity.  Click the link above to check it out.  It really helps.


Apple Cider Vinegar Natural Cure for Candida Thrush

For oral thrush combine 2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar to a cup of room temperature water.  Gargle this but don’t swallow it.  When done gargling, use a cotton Q-tip in straight apple cider vinegar and put it directly on the mouth sores.  Don’t rinse this.  Let it stand overnight.
