While douching isn’t something I recommend women do on a regular basis, there are some benefits to using this technique if you have a yeast infection you need to clear up. The key is to choose the right ingredients to prepare your douche. While an apple cider vinegar douche may work well, there are a couple of others to consider.
Douching is considered by some women as not a good thing to do as it may aggravate a vaginal condition, others find that it offers no real positive effect on a chronic condition. In my experience, the feedback I’ve received from many women has been most positive, especially the protocols I mention in my book Candida Crusher. Here are some useful douches you will find can offer much benefit.
Colloidal silver is a mixture of microscopically small pure silver particles suspended in water. When applied topically to the vaginal area, colloidal silver when diluted in water can provide immediate relief as it has a marked anti-fungal action. The usual dosage is to mix ½ – 1 teaspoon of colloidal silver with a glass of tepid pure water (250ml) and use the mixture to douche the vaginal area. Colloidal silver works well when used in this way, or when added to apple cider vinegar as a wash.
A stronger concentration can be used after several hours if you feel no change or improvement. Silver is a powerfully effective anti-microbial that is able to destroy bacterium and various fungi, and I have seen this treatment work when others failed, especially when the colloidal treatment was rotated with the water-soluble tea tree oil douche.
Here is a great douche, which is particularly effective around childbirth, or any time the vagina has been affected by any kind of trauma. This douche is very effective for any ongoing issues after an episiotomy or any vaginal tears. Calendula herbal tincture, and be sure to get the low-alcohol extract version, is one of the most anti-fungal of liquid medicinal herbs and is well known for its ability to heal skin rapidly. Use one dessertspoon of calendula tincture per 250ml tepid water and use this mixture to douche the vaginal area. Use a suitable applicator to irrigate the vagina deeply if possible. Just speak with your naturopath or herbalist who will be able to supply you with liquid calendula of a low-alcohol content.
Don’t want to use liquid herbal medicines or find it all too much? Another option is to use calendula cream or Kolorex (Horopito) cream. Kolorex cream or capsules is a New Zealand product that is available in USA. Here is yet another effective solution for you; you may want to consider a feminine cream based on tea tree oil, Horopito or calendula.
