Apple Cider Vinegar for Yeast Infection

Vinegar has been used for thousands of years; in fact, the earliest traces of the fermented liquid were found in Egyptian urns from around the year 3000 BC.

Vinegar can be made by the fermentation of various fruits and grains, or from beer or wine. Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is simple vinegar made from the fermentation of apple cider.

Vinegar is commonly used for culinary purposes, often as an ingredient in salad dressings, sauces, condiments such as mustard and ketchup, and marinades.

Other common uses include medicinal and naturopathic preparations.

Method

One method is to add two or three teaspoons of ACV to a glass of water. Drink three times daily for at least a week. By drinking the vinegar, oral thrush, esophageal candidiasis or systemic yeast infection can be treated successfully.

For a skin yeast infection, add two cups of vinegar to a tub of warm water and soak for half an hour.

For a vaginal infection, mix two tablespoons of vinegar with two quarts of water, then use a sterile piece of cotton and dip it in the mixture. Apply to affected area.

Why It Works

The ACV works on the yeast infection because of the antiseptic properties of the vinegar, which help to kill the yeast.

Precautions

Vinegar can cause intestinal problems if taken orally in quantity, and may damage tooth enamel. Avoid applying undiluted vinegar to the skin or sensitive areas, as irritation may occur.
