Every woman knows how horrifying a yeast infection can be, that constant irritation, feeling of disgust and being “unclean” is relentless, you want it to stop and you want it to stop RIGHT NOW! At some point in your life you will most likely encounter this horrid ailment.
Should I use an OTC Medication? Call a Doctor? Or use Garlic?
If you’ve never had a yeast infection before, you should always go to your doctor first, so that they can confirm that is indeed what it is. Other problems (like bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis) can cause vaginal symptoms that may seem like a yeast infection, this is why you sometimes need to see a doctor. Yeast infections are also very common during pregnancy. If you’ve had repeated infections (like 4 or more in a year) you should see a doctor, to make sure an illness or disease (like Diabetes, AIDS, or a weakened immune system) isn’t the cause.
Medications have come a long way to cure these nuisances quickly, but why pay for doctor visits and over the counter medications that sometimes don’t even work when the cure is in your kitchen?! It’s easy to just cure the yeast infection at home with GARLIC!

- Amazing Garlic
Garlic is an amazing natural antibiotic and antifungal plant. Many ailments can be healed with its use.
Why does it work?!
Garlic has special compounds that fight off and kill the fungus Candida Albicans when it is in over growth mode in your body.
The key compound in garlic is ajoene, an anti-fungal that has been shown to kill many fungal strains. Ajoene is formed from a compound named allicin and an enzyme named alliinase. When these two compounds come into contact (by chopping the garlic, crushing it or by other means), they form an antibacterial called allicin, which then combines to form ajoene. Although this has proven anti-fungal properties, the exact means by how this happens or works is unclear. As with most anti-fungals, scientists suspect that it works by disrupting the cell walls of the Candida yeast cells.
How to cure your yeast infection with Garlic
It’s actually really simple. Take a clove of fresh garlic, remove the papery shell cover and place it inside of your vagina at night. Do this for a few nights. If you have a severe infection, you should replace the Garlic morning and night until the infection has cleared. If you cut the garlic in half or make any slits or tears in the clove, it will work much stronger and can cause irritation and burning, it will not hurt you, but it may not be comfortable. I’ve done this, and I personally didn’t have any issues with irritation. Cutting the garlic or slicing it is good to do for a severe infection, it makes the garlic work faster. To me, any yeast infection is severe, my goal is to get rid of it as fast as possible.
Don’t worry about the garlic getting “lost” up there. It won’t. It can’t get past your cervix. The reason the treatment is done at nighttime is because there is a connection between the mouth and the vagina. The moment the garlic is placed in the vagina, the taste of the garlic travels up to the mouth. You may find you taste the garlic, so it’s best to do this treatment at night so you won’t notice. I know…it's weird and gross right? Another thing that is helpful is taking a Garlic Vitamin Supplement with this treatment. For a mild infection, this cure usually works within a day!
You’ll be back to having a happy vagina in no time!
