How to Use Apple Cider Vinegar For Yeast Infection

Expert Author John Cielo
Using apple cider vinegar for yeast infection is one of the most effective methods of treating this problem. Read on to see how it works...
Yeast infection -- also known as candidiasis -- is caused by an overgrowth of a certain fungi called 'candida albicans' which may affect many parts of the body such as the skin, mouth, intestines and the vaginal area.
But apple cider vinegar is an effective remedy for candidiasis: It contains natural enzymes that help to check candida fungal growth. At the same time, it also encourages friendly bacteria growth which keeps the candida fungi even more firmly under control.
Apple Cider Vinegar for Oral Yeast Infection
Sometimes the infection can occur in your mouth and is commonly known as oral thrush.
This infection causes white, creamy-looking lesions and sores on the inner cheeks or under / on top of the tongue.
Oral thrush can be extremely painful, causing bleeding and problems with eating, chewing and swallowing.
A very effective way to combat thrush is to use apple cider vinegar as a mouthwash...
Dilute 2 teaspoons of raw, unfiltered ACV together with 8 oz. of pure water, swish it in your mouth, then either spit it out or swallow it. Most people prefer to spit it out.
Repeat 2 or 3 times per day for around three days or until the symptoms have gone.
You Can Use Apple Cider Vinegar for Yeast Infection on the Skin
Yeast can also affect the skin, especially in and around the groin area, between the fingers and toes, under the breasts, beneath any other skin folds and under the nail beds.
These infections appear as rashes, blisters that ooze fluids, or dry, red raised itchy bumps.
Raw apple cider vinegar is recommended for relieving all the discomforts and pain of candidiasis of the skin...
You can use it as a bath: Empty two full cups of vinegar in a warm bath filled enough to completely immerse the affected area.
Remain in the water for half an hour or so and then repeat this treatment each day until the symptoms abate.
Apple Cider Vinegar is Particularly Effective for Intestinal Yeast Infection
In some cases, the infection may occur in your intestinal tract where, when the yeast begins to multiply and spread, it can cause toxic side effects.
There are many causes of intestinal infection, but the most common ones are overusing antibiotics, stress, a lowered immune system, hormonal imbalance and poor diet.
The symptoms of this infection includes: joint and muscle pains, headaches, depression, irritability, anxiety, skin rashes, intestinal cramping, diarrhea, severe gas, bloating, heartburn, belching and oral thrush.
ACD can greatly help this problem by killing the toxic yeast and re-balancing the friendly gut flora in the intestines...
Drink two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar diluted in 8 oz. water twice or thrice each day. Repeat daily until the symptoms disappear.
Apple Cider Vinegar and Vaginal Yeast Infection
Incredibly, a vaginal yeast infection affects at least 75% of women at some point in their lives. Worse still, around half of those will have recurring infections.
Most women who suffer this particular infection experience burning, itching and redness of the exterior part of the vagina, a white or yellow discharge, and some discomfort in their pelvic region.
Apple cider vinegar is used to treat this type of yeast infection in the same way as a skin yeast infection described earlier, i.e. soaking in a warm bath containing two cups of ACV.
You can also use apple cider vinegar diluted with fresh warm water as a douche: Apply the douche twice a day for best results.
You need to be careful when purchasing apple cider vinegar for yeast infection: Choose raw, unfiltered, unpasteurized vinegar for this purpose. This will give you better results since it has more nutritional value.
