Cures for yeast infections can come in many forms. With all the problems and side effects that can arise from taking medications I can’t say that I blame you for seeking out a natural cure for yeast infection. But, if for nothing else than you never know if the natural cures will work for you, you should really learn about some prescription medication, even if it is only superficially.
You never know when knowledge of these will come in handy, and since the section below isn’t that long either, you have more to gain than lose by reading it. And really, the only reason for it was that the use of medications to cure yeast infections, although not considered natural remedies, also do come in handy sometimes.
By going through this section you will be better equipped to make that crucial decision: Prescription or Natural?
You might not be aware of it but until very recently, prescription medications were the only remedies that were available to those suffering from yeast infections. Over the counter medications were virtually unheard of, and the only other solution that women were taking was that of the home-remedy path.
It also wasn’t until very recently that even prescription medications for yeast infections were something other than what amounted to generic anti-fungal medicines. To go at it from the point of view of history there are a number of prescription medications for yeast infections, but not all of them are what you might want inside your body.
That being said, if it works and clears up your infection then that’s all that you really want isn’t it? The list of the prescription medications that I’ve made below starts off with one medication that’s supposed to be able to clear up yeast infections with only one dosage. The rest of the list comprises of only a very few of the prescription medications that exist for the control and cure of yeast.
By no stretch of imagination can any of the prescription medications or any of the over the counter medicines be classed as natural.
o Diflucan – taken orally
o Mycostatin – vaginal tablets
o Terazol – vaginal cream
o Gynazole – vaginal cream
Acidophilus – The Most Popular Natural Cure for Yeast Infection
Acidophilus is basically good bacteria and can be found naturally in yogurts, which is why yogurt is such a popular home remedy for curing yeast infections. However, acidophilus can also be taken by itself without the aid of yogurt, and the mess that sometimes accompanies using yogurt as a cure.
The way that it works is that the Lactobacillus Acidophilus bacteria (the good bacteria), fights the Candida Albicans bacteria (the bad bacteria) by producing lactic acid. Since the Candida bacteria, definitely does not thrive in an acidic environment, the Acidophilus will win the battle.
Unless of course you give reasons for your vagina to reduce its acidity levels once again! It is said that the lactic acid produced by the Acidophilus bacteria acts like a natural antibiotic for your body. » Read more: The Most Popular Natural Cure For Yeast Infection
