The Garlic and the Yeast infection:

A Yeast infection is nothing but the excess multiplication of yeast cells near a particular area thus causing an infection. This is also called as candida which is the name of the fungus that generally grows in a yeast infection.

The general areas affected by yeast infections are near vag*na (vag*nal yeast infection), in the mouth (oral thrush) and near pen*s (penile yeast infection).

One of the most common yeast infections women suffer is the vag*nal yeast infection. Every women’s vag*na consists of a small number of yeast cells. When the balance between the yeast cells and the bacteria disturbs, fungus cells start to grow which is when you start to feel itching, irritation and burning sensation near the vag*na. This is what we call the vag*nal yeast infection.

Coming to the use of Garlic…

One of the most widely popular natural remedies which became popular nowadays is the Garlic remedy.

Garlic is known to have strong antibacterial and antifungal properties. Thus its antifungal properties can quickly kill the already growing yeast cells and thus cure the fungus causing the yeast infection.

In addition, Garlic also contains a compound called allicin, which is known to enter the membranes of yeast cells and interfere with their metabolism. Thus the allicin can quickly stop the yeast multiplication and thus can make the candida to die off.

Now, How Long does garlic take to cure a yeast infection?

Though the time taken for curing the yeast infection mainly depends upon the seriousness and advancement of the yeast cells, we can also estimate it based on the way you are using the garlic remedy.

In general, the garlic for yeast infections is used in two ways..

1. Eating garlic with your food:

This is one of the most common methods tried by people suffering yeast infections. In this, you need to add garlic to your diet and eat it regularly. This is the easiest and the safest way to use garlic to cure yeast infections.

In this, all you are doing is take garlic every day, such that your body soon turns into a place where fungus and yeast cannot live and multiply. Just remember that you should not keep the garlic for a long time in the mouth (as it can cause burning sensation)

Although some people across the forums claimed that they have seen results by next day morning..

Anytime I feel like I may be heading down the road to an infection again, I just crush one clove and swallow it before bed, by the next morning my symptoms are gone. Garlic is so good for you, inside and out. Source(thehealthyhoneys comments)

Remember, in this method, you need to completely change the constitution of your body and make it antifungal and only then you can see results. Thus, in general, this may take at least a few days, or weeks to kill the yeast infection completely.

2. As a Garlic suppository: (Only for vag*nal yeast infection)

This is one of the strongest methods to kill one’s yeast infection. This is because the garlic which has the allicin is directly being applied to the yeast cells and thus can have a huge and quick impact.

In this method, all you do is take a clove of garlic, remove its skin and insert the garlic into your vag*na, generally before going to bed. Remember to sew a thread into that garlic or else you may feel it difficult to remove it the next morning.

Although this is the strongest and most effective methods, it has its own set of side effects. This includes many women suffering burning sensation, irritation and other awkward symptoms after inserting the garlic.

5 ways to fasten the time Garlic takes to kill candida:

See, you may have already seen many websites which bombard you with some absolute non sense, which are no way practical. But I at crazyJackz only give you practical conclusions that are true to real life.

1. Eat Garlic immediately after it is crushed:

Although garlic is known to have strong antifungal properties, it was proven that garlic loses its properties once it is crushed and left uncovered.

One of the biggest mistakes people do while eating garlic for yeast infection is not eating them immediately after they are crushed. So, all you need to do is, take the garlic immediately after its peel is taken off and crushed.

2. Use Garlic containing cream instead of direct garlic:

Although direct garlic is completely natural, it is known to have some missing properties required to cure the yeast infections. This is when the garlic containing creams came into existence.

The garlic containing creams keeping the properties of garlic intact, also completely prevents the side effects of applying direct garlic. Thus using garlic containing creams instead of direct garlic is known to have a very strong effect on the yeast infection.

3. Use Raw garlic instead of boiled or cooked garlic:

One of the best ways to fasten and increase the impact of garlic on yeast infection is by using it in a raw state. Yes, many researchers clearly concluded that raw garlic is better in killing the yeast cells when compared to boiled or cooked garlic.

4. Using olive oil to reduce burning sensation:

One of the main reasons many women stop using garlic in the middle is due to the burning sensation garlic creates near the vag*na (when applied). Thus by reducing and controlling this burning sensation, you can continue using garlic remedy to see quicker and perfect results.

Thus one of the finest ways to reduce this burning sensation near the vag*na is by properly applying the (ozonated) olive oil and waiting for the burning sensation to reduce. In addition, this olive oil is also known to reduce itching and even irritation caused by the garlic and yeast infection.

5. Using the garlic remedy in combination with candida diet:

This is another important practice you must follow to make the garlic to quickly show the results. Remember, whatever antifungal properties the garlic may have, it can show some results only if your body is killing the fungus and the yeast cells.

Thus in addition to using the garlic, all you need to do is set up a proper candida diet, such that it promotes your body to naturally kill and control the yeast infection. The candida diet include avoiding many sugars, fermented and dairy products, on the other hand, adding important things like green vegetables, turmeric, apple cider vinegar etc
