Home Remedies to Treat Oral Thrush

by Mama Nature Health & Beauty
Oral thrush is a yeast infection of the mouth, a kind of build-up of candida albicans fungus in the lining of the mouth. It may occur in adults or children. As soon as you find an oral thrush in your mouth, it's important to treat it to contain the infection.

For oral thrush, you can take anti fungal medication to clear the yeast. But sometimes you may only need natural treatment for thrush at home. You can also consult your healthcare provider before trying any home remedies to make sure prescription treatment is not needed.

Here are some home remedies for thrush that can help you manage the pain of mouth and throat sores and might also kill off Candida albicans, the yeast responsible for thrush. 

1: Probiotics

Probiotics can help to treat thrush as it introduces good bacteria into the body that balance the gut flora. Probiotics may be an available option for at-home treatment and prevention of oral thrush. However, it may not kill off the candida fungus altogether but limit fungal growth and restore the natural balance in the mouth. Some examples of probiotic foods may include Miso, some cheese, yogurt, etc. 

2: Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar has natural antifungal properties and is essentially fermented apple juice. It may help to fight the growth of candida. However, it's not sure whether drinking apple cider vinegar can prevent or treat oral thrush. While trying this home remedy, make sure to dilute the apple cider vinegar as it is acidic and can damage your tooth enamel. 

3: Good oral hygiene

You need to maintain good oral hygiene whenever you brush your teeth, make sure you clean not only but also your tongue as well. Good habits along with rinsing your mouth thoroughly with an antiseptic mouthwash can also help in your fight against mouth thrush. Be sure to visit a dentist at regular intervals. 

4: Coconut oil

Coconut oil is one of the best ways to promote a healthy mouth as it has antimicrobial properties and the combination of lauric acid found in coconut oil kills off harmful candida through ingestion and topical application. Coconut oil pulling detoxifies the oral cavity and creates a clean, antiseptic environment. 

5: Garlic

Garlic extract works at a genetic level by switching off yeast gene activity. This inhibits protein and nucleic asset synthesis in candida cells and arrests the formation of lipids. Garlic is as effective as the antifungal drug, ketoconazole, in killing all yeast present.

Oral thrush is an overgrowth of the fungus Candida in the mouth. Above-home remedies for thrush can take care of the symptoms and the infection itself. Treatment for rosacea fulminans is important to be done at the right time.
