Can You REALLY Naturally Treat Yeast Infections?
Yeast infections are those pesky, irritating infections that occur in locations where the body's natural yeast is stored. They're caused by the overgrowth of this natural yeast (Candida) which then invades the surrounding tissues creating symptoms such as redness, swelling, itching, burning, white residue or discharge.
If you have a vagina, then you're all too familiar with yeast infections and the havoc they wreak when you have one. Most women in their lifetime will experience a yeast infection (in fact, 75% of us will!) and if you're an unlucky lady, you could have vaginal yeast infections more than once, or even frequently.
Yeast infections can be caused by commonalities such as the use of antibiotics or spikes in estrogen such as when we have our period or around pregnancy. Cruel, isn't it? Here's a bunch of hormones with horrific symptoms such as acne, mood swings, ravenous appetite and oh, surprise! A heightened risk of yeast infection! Sigh.
So the question remains: can women REALLY naturally treat a yeast infection?
The short answer is yes.
The favorable method of both preventing and treating yeast infections using a natural remedy is by taking a Boric Acid supplement or by using a Boric Acid suppository.
What is Boric Acid you may ask?
Boric Acid is an acidity weakened derivative of boric oxide which has natural, mild antiseptic, antibacterial, and antifungal properties. Though Boric Acid can naturally be found in figs, for manufacturing purposes, it's created from mining the natural earth alkaline metal borax mixed with hydrochloric or sulfuric acid.
Essentially, Boric Acid is a supplement much like other vitamins and minerals we take every day each with own unique properties. Boric Acid just so happens to be ideal for eliminating the overgrowth of the natural bodily fungus Candida (i.e. Yeast).
The great thing about Boric Acid is that it's used in both the prevention and natural treatment of yeast infections.
Medical News Today reports that the CDC (Center For Disease Control) suggests a dosage of 600 mg of boric acid in a capsule inserted vaginally once a day for 14 days.
So can you REALLY naturally treat a yeast infection?
The answer is yes- with Boric Acid.
If you have a yeast infection, periodically get yeast infections, or want to prevent the onset of yeast infections, Boric Acid is your natural, over-the-counter remedy.
