Don’t be fooled! Yeast infections don’t just affect women. Candia albicans, the yeast-like microscopic organism to blame, can affect men and children too. It targets mucous membranes, and can be carried by the blood throughout the entire body. And antibiotics only make the problem worse. So let’s talk about how to cure yeast infections naturally.
Today, antibiotics are prescribed for all infections indiscriminately and as a result of this, there is increased microbial resistance, the evolution of super-bugs like the MRSA’s, the ESBL organisms, the resurgence of fatal viral infection and fungal diseases, and a population that is grossly immunologically compromised. So, we’d like to recommend some natural alternatives to antibiotics.
In cases of acne, we’re usually so desperate that we go get the prescription stuff because we want it to go away. But there are natural options you can try first that just might do the trick without you having to apply strong medicated products to your already stressed-out skin – and one of the best and most powerful of these natural options is tea tree oil.
I’m always surprised when I find that a common ingredient I keep around the house anyway has an undercover health benefit. In our spice racks, we have many potent flavoring agents – sweet, salty, and bitter – but only one of them, Cinnamon, has been in the news lately as a natural preventative agent against high blood sugar and cholesterol.
Oil of Oregano, or Oregano oil, derived from the “wild oregano” or Origanum vulgaris plant, is one of the most potent natural antibiotics on the market. Its most well-known use is as a digestive: simple oregano flowers from your garden, when put into boiling water and brewed into an infusion, can settle an upset digestive system in no time at all.
Garlic, a natural antibiotic, is well known for two things: its delicious taste and its exceptionally strong aroma. But of all garlic’s effects, among the least well known (and most useful!) is its excellent track record as an antibiotic, antibacterial, and anti-fungal.
