There are many things you can do at home to help fight a yeast infection, whether you are using a conventional treatment (medication) or herbal (natural). There are home remedies that can help soothe your symptoms, foods to avoid and foods to eat more of, and there are drinks you drink more of. Here are three suggestions for drinks that will help with your yeast infection;
- Water!! How easy is this one! Try to avoid chlorinated water or water with fluoride added. Drinking a lot of water each day will help flush out your system and get rid of toxins the candida releases.
- Cranberry Juice. Cranberry juice is great for your overall health as well as for candida overgrowth. Drink at least 8 ounces of unsweetened juice a day (make sure it is no added sugar as the sugar is a food source for the candida).
- Here is a recipe for a herbal tea that can help the battle against candida. Drink it three times a day at least half hour before eating a meal. The tea can be bitter so try adding a little cranberry juice to help it go down. Ingredients
- 2 parts raspberry leaf
- 2 parts sage
- 2 parts mullein
- ¼ part goldenseal rootAdd 4 to 6 tablespoon to a quart of cold water and simmer over a low heat, covering the pot. When simmering remove from heat and allow to steep for twenty minutes then strain.
