That is very true. Yogurt, vinegar and apple cider can heal male yeast infections. Other ingredients that help are grapefruit seed extract, cranberry juice, baking soda, etc.
Herbal Remedies for Yeast Infections
Candida is a yeast that is classified as a fungus. Yeast thrives on sugars delivered by the bloodstream, so go light on your garden's fruit during an infection.
However, eating plenty of vegetables will give you the nutrients needed to boost immunity. Echinacea also provides support for immune function during this time.
Many herbs have the ability to conquer yeast. Calendula, goldenseal, rosemary, cedar, and myrrh all have antifungal properties. Make strong decoctions or infusions of these herbs to ease itching and burning; use either internally as a douche or apply externally with pads that have been soaked in it.
Garlic has strong antifungal and antiyeast abilities. It is particularly good at inhibiting the growth of Candida. If you can tolerate it, chew and swallow at least 1 raw clove or more per day. This needn't be taken alone. It may be more palatable to mince or press 1 clove and sprinkle it on your daily salad or any other dish you prefer.
