Yeast Candida Infection Homeopathic Treatment

Our immune system is premeditated to protect us from illnesses. But exposure to several situations in this modern world can compromise it and disturb the PH balance of the vagina. A normal favorable yeast Candida, that is present in our bodies, can stimulate into a harmful fungus, causing a commonly diagnosed yeast infection called Candidiasis. Yeast infection occurs in people of all ages and both sexes, but is more common in sexually active young women. For recurrent yeast infections symptoms get more noticeable a few days prior to the onset of menstruation and often get better once the period has ended. This is due to the vagina’s natural monthly fluctuating acid-base (PH) balance. Preceding menstruation and throughout the time of menstrual flow, the vaginal pH becomes much more alkaline, allowing yeast colonies which have been present in a dormant state to become active and produce symptoms.

Causes of Candidiasis yeast infection:


  • Prolonged use of antibiotics, corticosteroids, birth control pills suppresses the immune system and the normal intestinal bacteria that prevent yeast overgrowth.
  • Use of Intrauterine devices can create a favorable environment for fungal growth by decreasing normal vaginal secretions.
  • Consuming diets containing a lot of yeast and sugar.
  • Nutritional deficiencies.
  • During pregnancy due to hormonal changes.
  • Diabetes Mellitus as Candida albicans thrives in the presence of sugar.
  • A low immune system.
  • Continuous moisture of the genital area due to excessive sweating or by wearing non - ventilating clothing (wet swim suits).
  • Douching will remove all the good bacteria and dry out the vaginal area helping yeast to thrive.
  • Too much stress.
  • Use of scented feminine hygiene products.

Homeopathic approach to Candidiasis:

Homeopathic remedies will help restore favorable pH level inside the vagina which is influential in the management of candidiasis and yeast infection. Please be aware that the yeast and fungal overgrowth affects your entire system, not just the reproductive tract. Hence, to treat recurrent yeast infection, your entire system must be treated. Homeopathic medicines will enhance resistance to vaginal infection by stimulating your immune system so that the illness can be resolved as rapidly and with as little discomfort as possible. Homeopathic medicines work on an entirely different principle, that it doesn’t interfere with the natural immune response but works alongside it by enhancing one’s ability to fight an infection. Based on the classical approach of Homeopathy a Homeopathic practitioner looks at the person holistically, that is mind, body and emotion together and not just at the symptoms of the illness.

Homeopathic medicine for yeast


Sepia: This remedy has an affinity for a wide range of reproductive issues. In the context of Candida, it can be very useful for yeast infections, chronic constipation, itching of the skin and more. Typical yeast infections are sore or burning; lumpy or yellowish. People who need Sepia are often sluggish and tired – they feel better from vigorous exercise and from exposure to the sun. They are often chilly, yet feel worse in a warm room with no air circulation. They do not do well with extremes of temperature and may faint easily. There can also be irritability and mood swings accompanied by tiredness and even indifference to family.

Pulsatilla: This is another commonly prescribed remedy. Unlike the typical Sepia patient who is often irritable and indifferent, the typical Pulsatilla patient has a mild, gentle disposition and tends to cry easily. Itching, burning pains in eyes, profuse lachrymation, red canthi with inflamed eye-lids due to the eruption of the styes, acute conjunctivitis with agglutinated eye-lids, worse during hot weather, better during cold air. See more cases under conjunctivitis.This remedy is known for its changeable symptoms which can be both emotional and physical in nature. Yeast infections are often painless and have discharges that are thick, bland and yellowish-green with swelling of the vulva, and are worse lying down. People who need this remedy feel significantly worse from the heat, including a warm room, and feel much better walking in the open air. There may be itching of the skin or a red rash especially on the chest and abdomen.  

Calcarea-Carbonica: People who need this remedy are  susceptible to the cold and will often say not only that they dislike the winter, but actually get sick a lot during the winter months. There will also be a coldness of the legs, buttocks and even of the top of the head. There may also be easy perspiration on very slight exertion, or from coughing, from anxiety and while sleeping, especially on the back of the head. Most typically, yeast infections are thick and yellow or creamy like milk, accompanied by burning and itching.  There may also be a tendency to have constipation.
