Yogurt – This can really help you out not only by taking it orally and also applying it (for vagina yeast infection). However, not all type of yogurt can be used.

A cup a day will go a long way in bring your immune level up. The unsweetened yogurt contains friendly bacteria also known as probiotics which will help reinforce your body’s immune system and help in fighting your yeast infection.
The other use of unsweetened yogurt is to apply it directly to the area of infection or rub it onto a tampon and insert it into your vagina.
Apple Cider Vinegar – It has many health benefit and not only does it help in digestion, weight loss, it also help in fighting your yeast infection and improvement of overall health.
You can also take an apple cider vinegar bath Add about a cup of apple cider vinegar to your bathwater and soak yourself in it. It will help sooth and relax you giving temporary relief.
Garlic – The all natural garlic with its wonderful antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties is a natural enemy of yeast. They can be taken in the form of supplements or in their natural form with water. Garlic supplements in the form of capsules and pills are available for those who are afraid of garlic breath.
The other way to use garlic, if you can take it because it will sting a little, is to use a raw garlic making sure you peel of the outer layer and applying it to the area of infection or putting the entire clove in your vagina and leaving it overnight.
It’s best to wear a pad because of the discharge and some do advise wrapping the clove of garlic in gauze or cheesecloth but I find it unnecessary because it’s not really going to get lost inside you.
However, there’s one known side effect that I must warn you about. There’s a connection between the vagina and mouth and the taste of garlic will travel up the mouth.
Water – Last but not least on the list. Although it’s not a food, many people underestimate the importance of water and forsake it. Keeping yourself hydrated will not only keep your body in balance, it also helps to fight off yeast infection, lose weight, builds muscles, etc. I can go on and on about water and it can be a topic just by itself and I will not go further into that.
