When I was searching through the Internet, I saw a book that suggested eating yogurt and honey and lemon for yeast infection relief. It made me think about how beneficial both of these remedies are and I wondered if they were actually true or just another myth.
Honey is naturally antibacterial. When combined with an anti-fungal, it makes for great treatment. The antibacterial properties of honey prevent fungal growth, while the anti-fungal properties kill off any fungus that invades our bodies.
A yeast infection is caused by Candida Albicans, which lives in the moist parts of our bodies. When it overgrows, it causes a yeast infection. Candida is usually present in small quantities in our body. When it grows in numbers, however, it creates a problem.
So, when you eat yogurt and honey and lemon for yeast infection relief, you are killing off any existing Candida and ensuring that the fungus cannot grow back. While Candida is the cause of yeast infections, it can also help to fight it by inhibiting its growth.
One study found that there are more antifungal properties in the honey than in the antibiotic called gentamycin
The anti-fungal properties of honey have been used by many cultures to treat this illness for centuries. In the book mentioned above, the author discusses taking honey and garlic as a douche. She suggests drinking a lot of the juice after brushing your teeth to get rid of any leftover bacteria.
Yogurt has the same anti-fungal and antibacterial properties as honey. I suggest eating it on a daily basis for best results. I still don’t know about the benefits of the honey and lemon for yeast infection relief.
I have been suffering from a yeast infection now for over two years and I’m still trying to figure out how to cure it. I think it’s because the cure isn’t in the book but it could very well be true. My friend uses apple cider vinegar to help fight this disease.
If you have never tried this method, I highly recommend you give it a try
I’m sure it will be worth it for you. When mixing apple cider vinegar with water, dilute to one tablespoon each. Add a pinch of garlic powder to the mixture. Mix well. It’s a great way to get rid of this infection.
Another good natural cure is tea tree oil
Try to rub this oil on the affected area every night before bed. After the morning comes, use the apple cider vinegar solution again. for about 15 minutes before sleeping. Tea tree oil has the exact healing properties as many of them over the counter creams and suppositories on the market today’s market.
You just have to add one teaspoon to a warm bath. Lemon Balm Tea has the same ingredients and works just as well. Just take one fresh, unripe lemon and squeeze the juice from half a lemon. then apply this directly to the affected area.
Do this for about an hour before bed and it should clear up within 48 hours. I hope this information has given you some hope for a good night’s rest. I would also like to recommend a great natural treatment for thrush as well. Garlic is very effective in treating this disease.
First, you have to find a large clove of garlic, about a half a pound. Then cut off the garlic head and scrape it out. Then soak the cut off garlic head in boiling water and boil it for about half an hour. After the solution cools down you can apply it directly to the area you want to cure with it. I’ve heard that it also helps with the itching and burning.
