Thrush, Candidiasis and Vaginitis Herbal Treatment - McDowell's Herbal Treatments

Candida albicans is part of our normal gut flora, however when it overpowers the others it is indicative that our lactobacillus friendly flora needs some support. This is a fungal infection of the mucus membranes caused by different strains of candida , especially Candida albicans.

It can occur in the mouth or vagina even in people with a normal immune system.

For those with a weakened immune system such as those with AIDS, diabetes or even if pregnant it can be more persistent and severe, in this case it may spread through the body , in the bloodstream or heart.

In the mouth it causes painful, creamy, white, painful patches, in the vagina it causes an itchy white discharge.

It requires a rebalancing of gut flora but taking antibiotics also damages valuable flora which are involved in your natural resistance so you can end up with all sorts of exotic infection as a result of the treatment and you can go backwards.

On an emotional or energy level thrush or vaginal infections may equate to being angry at a mate or feeling guilty about sex and punishing ourselves. Try to work out any underlying feelings or concepts that hang over from how you were brought about your sexuality.

The old fashioned vaginal douches are far more effective in both the short and long term of any vaginal infection, fungal or bacterial.

Always start with a cup of warm water. Helpful common household ingredients include the following:
Fresh lemon juice, Apple Cider Vinegar, Yoghurt and Slippery Elm Powder

Even using just fresh lemon juice with warm water is highly effective. If you were to prepare a douche with small amounts of the four on the list and use it regularly twice daily, the mucous membranes of the vagina would regain their natural vitality and resistance to infection and heal up any damage.
