Here is How to Treat a Vaginal Infection with a Clove of Garlic

What if I tell you that garlic clove can cure a yeast infection easily? But it is important to start the treatment early. Every woman who suffers from yeast infection knows how the process goes every day so it is important to start the treatment the first day you get the symptoms.

For this simple treatment you only need fresh garlic!

Peel the white paper shells off and before going to bed put the clove into the vagina. It stays there during the night and in the morning you need to remove it. The garlic may cause watery vaginal discharge. Also, you can sew a string through the middle of the clove so you can take it out more easily. Continue the treatment until the itchiness is gone. This healing is recommended for nighttime because of the connection between the vagina and the mouth. When the garlic is placed in the vagina, its taste travels to the mouth. I am sure you don’t want to smell like garlic during the day.

Even if the infection has advanced and the woman has white vaginal discharge and red sore labia, it can still be cured but only by higher dose of garlic. Cut the clove of garlic in half and place it in the vagina before going to bed repeatedly for a few nights. It is better not to shower during a vaginal infection because yeast grows faster with water.

If a garlic clove is placed in a healthy vagina, it will burn the healthy skin. When women suffer from a yeast infection, the skin is already burned and red, so the garlic cures the infection and kills the yeast. The skin repairs itself after.

Garlic Kills Bacteria Too

Studies in China have shown that garlic can kill bacteria as well. It restrains growth of many microorganisms including Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhimurium, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus aureus, Mycobacterium phlei, Bacillus cereus and Micrococcus luteus.

Garlic loses its antibacterial characteristics within 20 minutes boiling at 100° C. At a Medical Center in Boston, scientists observed the use of garlic for ear infections. They discovered that garlic can even kill Streptococcus agalactiae, the dangerous bacteria known as Group B Strep, but when cooked or taken by mouth loses its activity.

Group B Strep (GBS) can cause harm to premature babies. Toward the end of pregnancy, women should check if they are GBS carriers because newborn strep infections take place more frequently in babies of women who were positive for beta strep.

GBS can be reduced by a fresh garlic clove placed in the vagina for one to two nights. There are no side effects, except garlic breath.
