Vaginal Yeast Infection Alternative Medicine
Treatments for Vaginal Yeast Infection
using natural therapies
READ THOROUGHLY - The vagina, like most organs in your body, are self regulating and heal themselves. However, problems can arise which need attention. There is nothing new here that isn't widely known and used. Many women having been using these natural remedies throughout the Ages - because they do work. However, they are not a substitution for medical attention if they fail to provide relief after a reasonable time.
The following steps are outlined from the easiest and most simple steps first. Always (each month if need be) start at the beginning and move to the next each time. This gives your body a chance to start correcting the problem with the least (and eventually) no intervention. DO EACH STEP for 3-5 days. If you do not feel positive change after at least 3 but no more than 5 days, proceed to the next step.
Vaginal discharge is part of life. Some women will have regular monthly discharge for life. Some do not. Both are normal. Problems are caused by yeast or bacteria. When the discharge is no longer clear, the general indicators of a bacterial infection are when the discharge becomes milky, or yellowish or has an odor (smell). A vaginal yeast infection may or may not discharge but will usually be raw, red and itching.
A recurring (monthly) problem is almost always a sign of a disturbance of the 'inner ecology'. In other words, there is usually a yeast or bacterial overgrowth elsewhere in the body caused by an overly toxic/acidic condition. If an overgrowth has already taken over the digestion/bowel and spread to the rest of the body, it is merely outcropping through the vagina, or toes, or ears, or rectum, or wherever else is can. Therefore to permanently shift the problem will require going through the normal 4-R Phase Program for several months. While that process is going on, if temporary infection occurs, follow the steps below. All these steps ASSUME that you are strictly following the dietary and supplement guidelines outlined in your 4-R Phase Program. The following natural remedies will not work, or only work temporarily until you follow the diet, supplement and lifestyle recommendations required to permanently heal your body.
Make sure your hands and all tools are thoroughly clean before you start. Consider gloves (drug stores have them). You don't want to make the problem worse by introducing another contaminant. You are working with live bacteria.
VINEGAR DOUCHE in the morning; repeat afternoon
2 tbsp. (apple) cider vinegar mixed in 1 Cup warm filtered water
(white vinegar can be too harsh acidic)
Buy a douche kit at the drugstore. You want just the equipment, not a commercial douche preparation. If you cannot find a douche kit, look for an enema kit, as the equipment is the same. Mix 2 tablespoons of cider vinegar with 1 cup of room temperature water. Using a funnel, pour the vinegar-water solution into the douche bag, then attach the nozzle. Be careful to hold the bag below the pelvis and to exert only slight pressure on the bag as you want to flush out the vaginal canal only and not push the solution up through the cervix into the uterus. Douching is an excellent way to cleanse when you have an infection, but regular douching can actually destroy the healthy pH balance in the body. So do not douche daily but only when you have an infection. Only use when needed. AND make sure everything including your hands and fingers are CLEAN and WASHED so as not to infect yourself with a common bacteria. Use filtered water.
Continue for 3-4 days. If improved, then stop. If not improved, move to next step.
- Implant probiotics vaginally.
The healthy vagina already has a colony of different strain probiotic flora called lactobacillus acidophilus (acid-friendly). When it becomes deficient, yeast will overgrow. Every night before bed for a month - swallow one of the probiotics we sent you which we know has a thriving probiotic culture (as opposed to a random store variety) AND insert it deep into the vaginal cavity. You can wet the capsule to slightly dissolve it before insertion. A more direct implant would be to open the capsule, pour onto a clean spoon, add a tiny amount of pure or distilled water, make into a paste, then insert that externally or as high as you can with your fingers. Make sure everything is CLEAN. It may take some time to restore the colony but you should see results within 2-3 days. If not, you can increase potency by using 2 or 3 probiotic capsule or you can also insert 1 capsule 2-3 times during the day. You can also start out at this higher potency. If not improved after 4-5 days move to next step (but continue oral probiotic for a month) at a different time of d ay, usually before bedtime.
- Implant raw garlic vaginally.
If all of the above suggestions don't solve the problem, we have to do more serious intervention. Before bed, take a peeled raw garlic capsule, poke the entire surface area with a fork, and insert it vaginally. You can use 2, 3 or 4 garlic bulbs. Remember, only the outer vagina has nerve endings, so if you quickly insert the bulbs without touching the outer tissue, then you should not feel any burning. Burning comes from the garlic juice which should initially stay intact within the bulb but will gradually come out during the night. In the morning simply remove the bulbs. You can douche (or not). In either case, once again insert a probiotic as outlined in step #1 above (except this time it will be during the day because you inserted the garlic before bedtime – wait at least 4 hours after removing garlic before inserting probiotics).
- DOUCHE - again but this time with a much stronger remedy using BORIC ACID DOUCHE (get at most drug stores). 1 Tbl. Boric Acid Powder in 1 QUART warm water. Use 1-2 times per day.
- Candisol Enzyme– see that protocol after trying above steps.
- Argentin 23 Silver Solution – see that protocol after trying above steps.
- Resort to an OTC or Rx remedy.
We have seen virulent infections, with thick "cottage cheese type" discharges go away using the above steps. It may take a few weeks but you should see gradual progress. If all that fails, after a serious 2 week effort with no results, then resort to an OTC (Over the Counter) drug store remedy of your choice or move to Rx (diflucan).
