Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath, author of Candida Crusher, with another question I get asked from time to time from my female patients. Can I treat my yeast infection while I’m on my period? You can treat it while you’re on your period, but I think a better time to treat a vaginal yeast infection is before your period in the proliferative phase. This is when the lining of the endometrium is starting to build up. So from ovulation through to period is a better time to treat. And in Chapter 5 of my book, Candida Crusher, you can read my unique twostep treatment for chronic vaginal yeast infection.
In the time building up to the menstrual cycle is a good time to use a kill or antifungal treatment. And in the postperiod time is a good time to do a restorative treatment or a building up treatment. And I guarantee you if you do three or four of these treatments concurrently for three to four months, you’re going to notice a big improvement. So you can treat while you’re on your period and I know some females do treat regardless of whether they’ve got their period or not, they’ll treat. But I believe a better approach is to treat premenstrual cycle and post and not during the actual bleeding phase. But it’s up to you. You can use douching protocols whenever you want.
So, I’m going to do a lot more tutorials regarding chronic vaginal treatments because this is an area I’ve treated many people over an extended period of time. Have a look at my book, Chapter 5, and there is a lot of material there on chronic vaginal yeast infection treatment. So I hope that answers your question. Thank you.
(gentle music) Laci Oh hi, everyone! Throughout the last ten years I’ve had so many vaginal issues that I’m basically a certified hacker now. (ding) Before I get started sharing some ancient remedies and twenty first century lifesavers.
Just a little reminder. I’m gonna be talking about vaginal infections and stuff and sometimes the symptoms of those are actually symptoms of things that are much more serious. So, yay, love your vagina and go to the when you need to. First step, when yeast gets a little outta control. Why yes, I am about to suggest.
That you put garlic in your vagina. I know it sounds weird but it seriously works so well. Just push in a whole clove. Don’t puncture it or will burn and change that baby every twelve hours. Usually within three to five days my yeast infections are gone. Yeah, it can leave a little bit of a smell.
But who doesn’t like garlic bread? The vagina’s a pocket so it’s not gonna get lost but if you’re worried, you can tie some floss to it so that you can easily pull it out. For pain relief, I put plain yogurt twith live active cultures into the fingers of a latex glove and then freeze it.
Look for yogurt with the least amount of sugar that you can find ’cause yeast loves sugar and when you pull it out of the freezer you’ll have these delightful, (mumbling) yogurt tampons. Pop one in overnight with a pad to catch the leakage. Next up, UTIs. I know, I know you’ve heard it before but seriously, hydration is so freaking important.
Try to be drinking a little water all day long. Second, secret weapon is DMannose. You can get this at a supplement store and I take two capsules three times a day for five days while drinking lots of water. Continue taking it a few days even after the symptoms have gone. I’ve also had good results with probiotics for bladder pain.
And take a good quality hibacteria count probiotic every day and it keeps the good bacteria in balance all over my body. Now, these are especially important for anyone who’s on antibiotics. I really wish the told me that. Lastly, what would a vagina tutorial be without discussing periods?.
