Yogurt for Yeast Infection in Women

Getting a yeast infection is a common occurrence in most women’s lives, and luckily there is a natural cure for yeast infections that you are likely already have in your refrigerator: yogurt! This fantastic home remedy works by restoring the balance of ‘good’ bacteria in order to help your body naturally fight off the candida fungus, the ‘bad’ bacteria that causes yeast infections when its numbers overgrow and the good bacteria cannot efficiently regulate it.

 

Candida love to thrive in warm, moist environments, which means that many women will have a vaginal yeast infection at least once in their lives. Yogurt is a great way to naturally cure vaginal yeast infections, as it gets to work immediately and can be used in a variety of ways to suit your lifestyle and dietary requirements – so keep reading on to find out more!

Yogurt Recipe For Vaginal Yeast Infection Treatment

There are quite a few different ways that you can use yogurt for vaginal yeast infections, from adding it to your daily diet to making homemade vaginal suppositories. Many women already have yogurt in their fridge, but for curing yeast infections it is important to use only plain, all-natural yogurt. The added sugars and sweeteners that many yogurts contain actually help the candida thrive – and that is definitely not what you want! Why not try out the fantastic recipe below?

 

Recipe: Tasty Yoghurt Breakfast Parfait

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-natural plain yoghurt
  • 1 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp organic granola (no sugar added, if possible)
  • 10 strawberries, finely chopped

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the seeds, granola, and strawberries.
  • Spoon some of the yoghurt into a tall glass. Layer on a spoonful of the seeds, granola, and berry mixture.
  • Repeat this process until all of the ingredients are used up.
  • Dig in and enjoy!

Precautions

It is very important that you try to find all-natural granola that does not contain added sugar, as such sweeteners will increase the likelihood of developing more candida yeast. If you have the time, why not make your own granola? That way you can control the ingredients!

Yogurt Suppositories to Cure Vaginal Yeast Infections

Another great way to cure yeast infections naturally using yogurt is to make your own vaginal suppositories. Using these suppositories will ensure that the yogurt can topically treat the yeast infection right at its source! If you are not yet confident enough to make your own vaginal suppositories (or just don’t have the time!) you can also buy these at your local health food store.

 

Recipe: Homemade Yoghurt Suppositories

Ingredients

  • all-natural plain yoghurt
  • Plastic wrap

Instructions

  • Roll out a large sheet of plastic wrap and then cut it into several long strips.
  • Towards the bottom of each strip, place a dollop of all-natural plain yogurt and then roll the strips up so the yogurt is completely contained.
  • Place these in the freezer and allow them to set before using.
  • When they are set, you can use the suppositories by carefully unrolling the frozen yogurt from the plastic and inserting directly into the vagina.
  • After the suppositories have worked their magic, make sure to wash and dry the area thoroughly.

Precautions

Though these suppositories can be used throughout the day, they are perhaps best used at bedtime when you will not be moving as much; whenever you use them, be sure to also have a protective pad or panty-liner on as the yogurt will begin to drip slightly as it warms from your body temperature.

 

Your vaginal yeast infection may also occur on the labia; if this is the case, you can topically apply the yogurt here as well. Leave it on for at least one hour (this may best be done at bedtime) and then thoroughly wash and dry the area.
