Natural supplements - can they stop a yeast infection?

Beware of miracle cures improvised. Today, there are lots of natural products and alternative therapies on the market that claim to combat yeast infections. There are some that will be useful while others will be good to empty your wallet.

Many products say remove yeast infections, but most have not been effective. Among the natural supplements and home remedies which the utility has not been demonstrated in the treatment of yeast infections include:
  •     oil of tea tree,
  •     garlic,
  •     boric acid.

Acidophilus, the same bacteria to the beneficial effect that is in your yogurt, is available in pill form, powder or liquid. However, these presentations can be costly and does not contain sufficient lactobacillus acidophilus to be effective. There is currently insufficient evidence to support the effectiveness of acidophilus in the treatment or prevention of yeast infections, whether oral preparations or vaginal suppositories.

Talk to your doctor or health professional supplements he recommends. And, remember that natural supplements can cause side effects like drugs; therefore, you should always consult your physician before taking.
