Wondering how you can erase yeast infections naturally?
Here are a few little known remedies that will surely surprise you.
7 Anti-Fungal Remedies from Your Pantry
Remedy #1: Coffee Soak
What You Need to Do
Mix 10 spoonfuls of coffee with 5 oz. of water, and then bring it to a boil. Let it cool off for a bit, then, repeatedly soak your fungus affected nails in it.
Repeat this procedure several times a day, for 2-3 minutes. Once you remove your nails from the coffee container, let them dry all naturally and don’t rinse off with water.
Do this treatment every other day of the week and take a one day break between soaks so your body has time to heal.
Remedy #2: The Transylvanian Cure
Crush a little bit of garlic and mix it with vinegar. Apply it on your nail and nail bed and leave it on, without washing. Repeat this procedure twice a day, ideally before bedtime.
Remedy #3: The Minty Relief
Mix 2 crushed mint leaves with salt and apply it in between your fingers. Leave it on for an hour, then wash. Repeat every day, until you notice improvements. This is a great treatment that helps alleviate the yeast infection that thrives on that particular area.
Remedy #4: The 1 Minute Miracle
It is also useful to treat the affected nail with 3% hydrogen peroxide (oxygenated water sold at the pharmacy). Simply anoint with it the nail attacked by the fungus, every other day.
Remedy #5: Aromatherapy Delight
Use essential oils of aromatic herbs: thyme (different varieties like Thymus vulgaris, Saimtu-reja hortensis, Thymus serpyllum) and horsetail (Origanum vulgare).
Before doing anything else, clean the nail by washing it with a concentrate of thyme and sage. Then apply an undiluted mixture of volatile and anti-fungal oils (like lavender and tea tree) directly to the nail, without touching the peri-angular skin (the skin surrounding the nail). Do this twice/day, for 10 days.
Take a pause for another 10 days, then repeat. Continue this cycle several times until the yellow color disappears and your nail begins to thicken.
If the fungus infection also spreads to the skin, mix 3 drops of lavender volatile oil with a teaspoon of base oil (any vegetable oil, grape seed, olive oil, coconut oil, etc.) and massage your skin daily with it.
Remedy #6: Aromatic Herbs with Anti-Fungal Properties
Apply this natural ointment with dill and rosemary onto the nails to heal your fungus infection.
- 4 teaspoons of comfrey root
- 3 teaspoons of rosemary leaves
- 2/3 cup olive oil
- 1/3 cup beeswax
Mix all plants with the oil, and heat for 30 minutes on a water bath. Allow it to cool, then use a gauze to squeeze it properly.
Let it rest for a day, then melt the wax and stir everything until an ointment is formed.
To increase the therapeutic effect of this ointment, mix 10 drops of lavender volatile oil and 10 tea tree volatile oil and massage your foot with it.
Remedy #7: The Anti-Fungal Potency of Minerals
Soak your nails in warm water, in which you add one tablespoon of sodium bicarbonate and one tablespoon of salt. Keep them in until the water cools off, and then rinse your feet.
Alternative: you can also just dissolve 3 tablespoons of sodium bicarbonate in a bowl of water and keep your feet (or hands) in for 15-20 minutes.
Try these remedies one at a time and let me know how they have worked in clearing up your fungal infection.
