Fungus or fungi are microorganisms which are present everywhere around you. From inside the house to out on the road, fungi are present all over. At times, they may enter the bloodstream through your skin and cause various fungal infections. Fungal infections should not be left to heal on their own. They need immediate medical treatment and can be cured as soon as proper medicine is administered. Homeopathy uses some of the most natural extracts or natural ingredients to cure fungal infections. This means that not only would your infection heal but also there would be no scope of any side effects. Some of these natural medicines against fungal infections are discussed below.
- Garlic: The medicinal properties of garlic are not less known to anyone. In fact, you can start consuming more garlic in your food to speed up your recovery. The antibacterial properties of garlic are many. You can make a fine paste of garlic and olive oil and apply on the affected area for at least thirty minutes before washing it off. Furthermore, for fungi infections in the vagina, wrap garlic in a gauge and then place it in the vagina for half an hour before removing it. However, since the vagina is one of the most delicate parts of the human body, it is recommended that you consult the homoeopathic practitioner before opting for self-medication.
- Tea Tree Oil: This might take some time or at least two to three weeks to show its effects. All you have to do is take tea tree oil and mix it with olive oil. Apply this mixture on the infected area at least twice a day. The anti-fungal properties of tea tree kill the infection causing fungi and the antiseptic properties prevent spreading of the infection further. However, pregnant women must not make use of this method.
- Olive Leaf: Not only do olives boost the immune system, but the leaf of the olive trees helps in curing fungal infections with its antifungal properties. Grind some of the olive leaves and apply the paste onto the affected area. This would help in curing your fungal infection faster.
Thus, these are some of the best natural remedies against fungal infections. It is always advisable to consult your local medical practitioner before administering any of these medicines. In fact, if the infection spreads or takes an unnaturally long time to heal, then it is best to consult your homoeopathic practitioner again for a higher dose of medicine. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
