Herbal treatments are a popular option because they are readily available and easy to take. The following are just five tips for curing candida with natural herbs.
Eat More Garlic
Garlic is one of the best herbs you can use for treating candida. Because garlic has antifungal and antibacterial properties, candida isn’t able to thrive.
What’s important is that you use garlic consistency. The good news is you don’t have to eat garlic daily to keep candida under control. If you’re not eating garlic, you need to take garlic pills three times per day.
Brew Up a Cup of Pau D’Arco Tea
Pau D’Arco is another herb with antifungal properties and is often brewed into tea. Drinking one cup per day will give your body the boost it needs to fight off candida. If you don’t like the taste, you may want to brew the tea with another flavor or use sugar and lemon to improve the flavor.
Fight Back With Oregano Oil
Due to the potency of oregano oil, it’s highly effective in treating conditions like candida. Oregano oil has highly concentrated phenols, which help fight bacterial and fungal infections and candida overgrowth. You can take the oil orally or rub it on the affected area.
Kill Infections and Parasites With Black Walnut Oil
Black walnut oil is effective in killing parasites and fungal overgrowth due to the tannins found in the oil. Black walnut oil has been used in medicine for hundreds of years.
The husk is what’s used for treating candida and can be found in black walnut extract. The extract can be found in a liquid or capsule form. For obvious reasons, do not use this remedy if you’re allergic to nuts.
Boost Your Immune System With Echinacea
Echinacea is a great immune system booster that is used to fight off infections ranging from the common cold to candida. It also has the benefits of fighting off other infections. Echinacea can be found in extract form for around $4 for 100 capsules making it an affordable way to prevent infections.
Why use prescription drugs for treating candida when you can rely on the medicine that Mother Nature has provided? Whether you choose garlic or black walnut extract, you can keep candida under control naturally. Best of all, many of these herbal remedies have other benefits that will help you stay healthy by boosting your immune system and keeping bacteria and fungus under control.
