Cure Yeast Infection Naturally

What is yeast infection and how do you cure it naturally? According to Wikipedia:

Candidiasis or thrush is a fungal infection (mycosis) of any of the Candida species (all yeasts), of which Candida albicans is the most common. Also commonly referred to as a yeast infection, candidiasis is also technically known as candidosis, moniliasis, and oidiomycosis.

Candidiasis encompasses infections that range from superficial, such as oral thrush and vaginitis, to systemic and potentially life-threatening diseases. Candida infections of the latter category are also referred to as candidemia and are usually confined to severely immunocompromised persons, such as cancer, transplant, and AIDS patients as well as non-trauma emergency surgery patients

Anyway, how do you cure yeast infection naturally? These are only a few of the things you can do to help you cure yeast infection.

  1. Maintain proper hygiene. 
  • Keep your body and your affected area clean all the time. 
  • Use proper hygiene products or mild soap.
  • Keep your genital area dry as bacteria like living in wet and moist areas.
  • Wear cotton undergarments. 
  • Change undergarments twice or thrice a day.
  • Change your clothes immediately after swimming or doing exercises.
    2. Eat Healthy.
  • Eat fruits and vegetables more.
  • Drink plenty of water.
