Herbal Yeast Infection Remedies That are Medically Proven to Work

Natural anti-fungal herbal yeast infection remedies are very useful in the treatment of candida infection because they can enter the blood stream where probiotics cannot. This helps with chronic and systemic fungus infection treatment immensely, if the fungus has penetrated the lining of the intestines and has traveled throughout the body. Probiotics can only kill the yeast infection in the intestines, mouth, and vagina, but they do balance the ph levels in the body providing support to the immune system, while they restore natural bacterial levels for your future health.

The products listed on this page are some of the best of the best. The focus is on quality, strength, and effectiveness.

I have looked at hundreds of products for treating this condition and the other products I recommend are the strongest and the best quality I can find. I am constantly on the lookout for comparable products, and as I find them I replace what I have listed below. However, that doesn't happen very often.

Summary of The Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements and Why I Recommend the Products I Do

Most chronic and systemic yeast infections are associated with parasites also. I recommend a parasitic cleanse be done before you start on the yeast infection remedies and probiotics. Even if you do not have parasites this cleanse allows the herbal yeast infection remedies to work much more effectively once you do start the yeast infection treatment.

The Ultimate Colon Cleanse 2 Pack as an herbal yeast infection remedy is a proprietary blend of natural herbs and certified organic botanicals for cleansing of the intestines; it supports and stimulates the body’s natural defenses in the removal of parasites, pathogenic organisms such as food-borne bacteria, protozoa and nematode parasites, candida albicans as well as the poor dietary habits that destroy colon health. Most importantly helps breakdown the biofilm candida yeast builds around itself as a means of protection.

This formula can help support individuals with constipation, bloated stomachs, parasitical infections, candidiasis, and giardiasis. The Ultimate Colon Cleanse also expels putrefied fecal matter from the digestive system, helping to maximize overall colon health.

You also get a free 2 month supply of an 8 strain probiotic to help re-establish good bacteria that balance the ph levels in colon making that environment unfriendly to foreign pathogens.

This is a powerful pre-treatment allowing the herbal yeast infection remedies to be more effective when you start taking them.

It also comes with a 60 Day No Questions Asked Money Back Guarantee if your not delighted for any reason. Just send back what you have left over and they will refund your money. This cleanse alone can make a huge difference in how you feel, I wouldn't skip it.

Colosan is a magnesium oxide colon cleanser that can be used if you have severe constipation. It will work when nothing else will.

The Natural Herbal Yeast Infection Remedies

Some of these herbal yeast infection remedies are actually classified as antioxidants, which I find interesting since most antioxidants are actually anti-fungals. The antioxidant craze of the last 10 years has seen the rise to the market place of many different products for your health. Supplements like Co-Q10, grape seed extract, beta-carotene and other proanthocyanidins that are actually anti-fungals. They all work but naturally some are better than others for yeast infections.

All of these herbal yeast infection remedies have been proven in real medical studies to kill candida yeast. I hope you find this information useful. You can click over and read the studies if you so choose.

The Best Medically Proven Remedies

Berberine Sulfate has a very broad range of antimicrobial properties, including very strong effects against drug resistant yeasts. I have posted quite a few medical studies on this webpage if you care to review them.

Burdock root is an herbal yeast infection remedy that has been found in many studies, that I have posted here and here, to be an excellent candida yeast killer along with having antimicrobial activity against many bacterial pathogens. It also helps cleanse the blood and liver, which is helpful for removing yeast toxins.

Candidate is a great herbal yeast infection remedy that is best taken in tincture form where the active ingredients have been extracted medicinally in pharmaceutical ethanol. It comes from the bark of the Pau d'arco tree in South America. The bark itself which in spite of being in the rain forest with high humidity, never grows any mold, mildew, or fungus proving its anti-fungal potency. Laboratory tests have demonstrated that both Lapachol and beta-lapachone, the active ingredients in the tree, have anti-fungal properties as potent as ketoconazole. It also contains Calendula officinalis, which has strong anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties and is also an effective liver tonic. It improves overall system functioning and aids in the removal of toxins from the body. Lemon grass is also present and has known anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties and can help to repair intestinal walls that have been damaged by Candida overgrowth ('leaky gut' syndrome).

I wish I had known about this when I was treating myself for candida, it's very potent, and user feedback has been outstanding.

Hi Dan

I don't know if you remember, but I contacted you about 10 days back regarding a problem involving rectal itching and bladder irritations. I felt the two were connected and that they may have something to do with yeast after a course of antibiotics in the summer of 2009. I came to this self diagnosis after reading excerpts from your website and a few others. After doing the research I eventually took the 'spit test' which seemed pretty conclusive.

I just wanted you to know that after a week of taking 'Candidate' the results are staggering. After 6 months of hell the problem seems to be clearing up. I just wanted to thank you for responding to my original email and for providing all the information on your website. Without this (and the efforts of many others on the web) I'd be stuck in one big hole of ignorance, especially as my GP clearly wasn't interested in my problems.

Thanks again.

All the best


Cinnamon oil and powdered extracts have been found to be deadly to all species of yeasts. Powdered extracts are recommended internally and oils work well on the skin. I have studies posted here and here.

Coconut Oil has been found in studies to explode the nucleus of the candida yeast cell. The studies found that lauric acid was more effective than caprylic acid alone but taken together in the oil, it was a very potent combination for killing yeast. The cell wall remained intact but the plasma and nucleus exploded, which killed the candida yeast. It also is a great source of essential fats for good health. You should do all your cooking of fried foods with it and you can take 2 or 3 tablespoons a day to kill yeast. It also has a very good fatty acid profile which will greatly improve your overall health and reduce inflammation.

Gymnema sylvestre has the ability to prevent the mycelial form of candida from producing spores. It also forces it this mycelial form to shift back to a spore form which is easier to kill. You can review the medical studies here and here.

Grapefruit seed extract in liquid or capsule form is a very good herbal yeast infection remedy that has been to inhibit candida yeast as well as Miconazole. This study also found that garlic and tea tree oil have no inhibitory effect on candida yeast. There are additional studies on this webpage and this one as well.

Oregano Oil is a very powerful herbal yeast infection remedy that enters the blood stream very quickly. It usually contains other compounds such as thymol, eugenol, and terpineol that also have anti-fungal activity. There are many studies  proving its efficacy that you can review here and here.

Undecylenic acid from castor beans is a very good yeast infection remedy that has been in use since the 1940's. You can review the Medical studies on undecylenic acid here and here. The studies have shown undecylenic acid kills all forms of yeast whether it be candida albicans, candida tropicalis, or candida glabrata. 

MPS-Gold is a formulation of glyconutrients, which may be effective for candida yeast infections. In 1998 an invitro study by D.L. Lefkowitz and S.S. Lefkowitz Ph.D's. from Texas Tech University, Dept. of Microbiology; found that a complete glyconutrient formula verses aloe polymannose, a single glyconutrient, killed 95% of the candida test specimen by increasing the immune systems phagyocyte and macrophage activity. Aloe polymannose did increase the killing function above controls but not nearly to the extent of the complete glyconutrient formulation.

I have also seen it stop internal bleeding in people and animals that had blood in their stools within 24 hours. This tells me that this would be a fantastic product for leaky gut syndrome.

The Best Way to Use These Remedies for Intestinal Yeast

Other Anti-Fungal Candida Remedies

No Particular Order:

Caprylic acid is a fatty acid derived from coconut oil & has been found to kill on contact yeast and other fungi. It specifically is effective for gastrointestinal candida overgrowth. Once absorbed, caprylic acid is no longer an anti-fungal but is then metabolized to produce energy. I have to add that you're much better off to take the oil with the lauric acids present than just this alone. The lauric acid is stronger and the two together destroy the nucleus of the candida yeast cell.

Colostrum is a good yeast killer and is very beneficial for immune system support. It contains all the immunoglobulin antibodies that a person needs for support. Especially IgA, which protects the mucous linings of the body, the place yeast likes to attach. It is also very beneficial for leaky gut syndrome. Symbiotics Immune Formula with Colostrum Plus also contains arabinogalactan, olive leaf extract, Beta 1-3 glucan extract, and lactoferrin. All are known immune system boosters with much research behind them proving this fact. It is also enteric coated to get by the stomach acids intact. This is the best colostrum product I have been able to find in years, andit tastes good.

Pure Lactoferrin is is the active ingredient in colostrum and is indispensible for treating candida and yeast infections. I recommend this with BioFase and CP-1 for vaginal yeast infections. Pregnant women should not take Lactoferrin because the stimulation of the immune system could cause the body to attack the fetus. It is extremely potent!

A 1998 study published in The Journal of Microbiology, implicated raw carrots as a good fungus fighter because it seems to inhibit fungus proliferation. The absolute best way to use carrots for herbal yeast infection remedies is to juice them. Juicing provides your body with instant nutrition to the blood stream as well as giving your body a break from the strain of digesting whole foods.

Tanalbit is a plant tannin formula that works very well for yeast infection treatment and bad bacteria. On the stool test results I see, if any yeast is detected the lab runs a susceptibility test to determine what will kill that species of yeast. Plant tannins always rank pretty high for effectiveness on these tests.

I would not take Tanalbit if you are allergic to dairy because it does contain casein. Instead, I would take Viracin because the casein has been removed.

The Best Herbs for Skin Yeast Infection

Gentian Violet is safe enough that many women that have nipple yeast use it while nursing. It does have a habit of turning clothes purple, but spraying your clothes before washing with Zout or hair spray has been reported to take it out.

Cinnamon oil is a little known herbal yeast infection remedy that has been found to be deadly to fungus. The active ingredients are cinnamaldehyde, cinnamon oil vapors and eugenol. Preliminary human evidence confirms this effect in a clinical trial with AIDS patients suffering from oral candida (thrush) infections that improved with topical application of cinnamon oil. Antibacterial actions have also been demonstrated for cinnamon oil concentrates. The diterpenes in the volatile oil have shown anti-allergic activity as well. In addition, water extracts may help reduce ulcers.

Oregano oil can also be used on the skin but should be diluted so it does not burn. I have seen this clear up late stage skin yeast that had macrophaged and became hardened when used straight.

Liquid grapefruit seed extract also works well for skin yeast but it will have to be diluted so it does not burn your skin.

Lufenuron, or chitin synthesis inhibitor, has been medically proven to kill dermatophyte type of fungi(tinea) that commonly infect the skin. These infections include ringworm, jock itch, athletes foot, nail fungus, dandruff, and others. It has been used for years for dogs and cats with this type of skin yeast and fleas with very good success. I have not been able to find a study for Lufenuron and candida specifically so I have no idea if it works for that species? I do know that it does not work for aspergillus or Coccidioides immitis and the study involved determined it has no anti-fungal abilities. Be forewarned, Lufenuron has demonstrated the ability to damage intestinal cell junctions and animal ovary cell junctions, which could put you at risk for developing leaky gut syndrome.

If I was going to take Lufenuron, I would take it from two weeks to a month and take a corresponding two weeks to a month off. I would not take it if I had or suspected I had leaky gut.

Best Enzyme for Candida Yeast

Biofase is by far the best enzyme for candida yeast infections. It not only contains the same yeast digesting enzymes as Candex and Candida Yeast Management but also an enzyme that works systemically. This enzyme gets into the blood stream and goes on a search and destroy mission while also reducing inflammation, clearing arterial plaque deposits, and reducing pain.

Best Probiotic Formulas for Yeast & Candida

Profase is the best, this probiotic was designed to kill candida and bad bacteria while boosting immune function. Take a look at the page, the studies, and references and I think you will agree.

11-Strain probiotic powder is a very strong well rounded probiotic that many people say is the only one that works for them. It contains 11 species and an adult dose contains 224 billion bacteria. High doses are what you need when treating yourself for yeast infections with conventional probiotics.

Custom Probiotics or CP-1 is one of the strongest capsule probiotics in the market place. One capsule contains 78 billion live bacteria with a guaranteed 60 billion after 1 year of storage at room temperature. The formula contains 3 species of bifidobacterium and two acidophilus in about a 50/50 mix.

Bacillus Laterosporus BOD in invitro studies was found to be an excellent yeast killer and was subsequently patented as a candida yeast killer. The number of bacteria is pretty low though so it must be taken a certain way to truly be effective. I have included directions on that webpage.

Culturelle®, Lactobacillus GG is one of the better probiotics that contains a patented strain of bacteria called Lactobacillus GG, a species that is normally found in the human body to start with. Numerous clinical studies have been done around the world on the benefits of this bacteria, most notably, it has the notable ability to survive antibiotic attack. This is big news for women that suffer from antibiotic caused yeast infections, or are going to be taking antibiotics at one time or another. An once of prevention would most certainly be worth a pound of cure. Each capsule contains 30 billion live bacteria. It does not have to be refrigerated proving it will not grow molds in the body. It has also been proven to get by the stomach acids intact.

All these probiotics can be used as a douche or suppository for vaginal yeast infections, used as a colonic implant, for soaking athlete's foot, toenail fungus, or sprayed on certain skin rashes like diaper rash.

All probiotic formulas will not establish new bacterial colonies in the intestine because that ability is lost during the manufacturing process. The only way to establish new colonies is by fecal matter transplant.

Specialty and All-In-One Herbal Remedies for Yeast Infection

Microfase is an herbal formula designed to combat yeast and bad bacteria and support a healthy intestinal environment. You can use it by itself, or in addition to Biofase and Profase for a complete yeast cleanse.

Zetaclear is an herbal yeast infection remedy for toenail fungus that works very well and is has a risk free 30-day guarantee.

Toenail Fungus Zapper is another nail fungus product that has been manufactured to GMP standards. The ingredients are also used in homeopathic formulas to support nail health. It has a 1 Year Guarantee if your not delighted with the results.

Vagi-Soothe™ is used to relieve the burning and itching of vaginal yeast infections. It is manufactured in an FDA and GMP registered pharmaceutical facility under the supervision of qualified homeopaths and responsible pharmacists. All ingredients are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS). It also has a 1 Year Guarantee if your not delighted.

Yeast Away is a suppository product for vaginal yeast infections. It contains borax and other homeopathic medicines that are listed in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. It would bring quick relief for the burning and itching when used.

The Herbal Yeast Infection Remedies Protocol

The Mercury and Metal Connection

Many many times, the person that suffers chronic yeast infections or from candida has high mercury, iron, or other metal levels. If you fall into this category and do not treat yourself for this issue, your chances of getting rid of this are very slim. The only way to know where you stand is to get tested. You can have your doctor do it or you can do it yourself. If you test high you must then treat yourself for mercury, iron, or metal poisoning. Yeast is an immune system reaction to mercury poisoning. It absorbs its own weight in mercury so it cannot get into the body and poison you.

The best product I know of for removing metals from the body without the nasty side effects is powdered Zeolite found on the Mercury pages.

As you can see there are lot of herbal yeast infection remedies to choose from and some are better than others. Mycologists have found that the candida fungus will mutate and build resistance like any common bacteria if you take only one or two of these yeast infection remedies. The treatment requires that you rotate a selection of products in a proven treatment system so the fungus does not have time to adapt and build a resistance to these herbal remedies. It is very effective and the whole treatment lasts 12 to 24 weeks depending on the severity of the infection.

Always remember to buy and use high quality herbal yeast infection remedies that are proven to have the herb listed in sufficient quantities. This is one time in your life when this difference can truly make the difference, between getting well and not getting well. This does make a difference with all herbs for any illness or health challenge, always place quality before quantity.
