What we learned in 20 years of treating yeast infections
Over the years, we have reviewed a very large number of yeast infection treatment options. Some options have proven to be very safe and effective. Others, weren’t so good with many reported side effects.
When we look at the best over the counter yeast infection treatment reviews, we see a very large amount of products and remedies.
These include yeast infection medicine, pills, creams, over the counter (OTC) and prescription.
Natural remedies for yeast infections and candida supplements are also very popular as well.
What is the best treatment for a yeast infection?
So what all the best reviews have in common?
It comes down to two critical parts in the treatment. These have been the core of our natural protocols for candida and yeast infections:
- Treat the cause of the yeast infection and not the symptoms.
Yeast infection can be caused by different reasons, each may require a completely different treatment.
- Safety comes first.
Avoid using risky remedies or medication. These can make your infection become worse.

Yeast infection home treatment is very popular and has proven to be safe and effective when done properly.

Yeast Infection Treatment Side Effects
Next to the best over the counter yeast infection treatment reviews, there is a very large number of issues reported.
Side effects during the yeast infection treatment are common. Based on our experience, these are usually a result of:
Harsh yeast infection creams
Many yeast infection creams and vaginal suppositories contain antifungal drugs designed to kill yeast. These drugs may be too strong for some people. Especially considering that the skin is already irritated. Common side effects include: itching, burning, irritation and pain. In some cases these creams can make the yeast infection worse.
For this reason, natural safer alternatives are usually preferred.
Ozonated Olive Oil is a good example of a natural yeast infection cream we use in our yeast infections protocols.
Unlike many antifungal creams that can cause irritation and burning when used topically, Ozonated olive oil has a unique ability to reduce the yeast infection on one hand, while helping to soothe skin irritation and accelerate wound healing at the same time.
aggressive antifungal medication or supplements
Antifungal medication and supplements contain ingredients that kill candida and yeast in your body. While this can be very beneficial in certain cases, it can also backfire if not used correctly. One of the biggest problem we see with antifungals, is that many of them are too aggressive, toxic, and even contain harsh chemicals.
This is a common misconception in the yeast infection treatment.
You do not want to artificially “kill the yeast”. Ideally, you want to help your body to naturally balance the yeast infection. This way, your body can safely eliminate the excess yeast naturally at its own pace.
Mycozil ® is our preferred antifungal product, designed to help cases of “stubborn” candida and yeast infections.
It is one of the most potent natural antifungal supplements we tested. Yet, it is also shown to be very gentle and safe.
Mycozil’s formula contains selected organic and wild crafted ingredients with a long history of traditional use for candida, yeast and fungus issues all around the world for many centuries. These natural ingredients are also backed up by science, demonstrating strong antifungal activity in a large number of studies.
Healing crises or die off reaction occur when candida yeasts start to die during the treatment. Common symptoms may include flu-like symptoms. Existing symptoms may become more severe as well.
This doesn’t mean that the treatment is working. This usually means that the amount of toxins released by the dying candida is more than what your body can safely handle.
Preventing toxins overload and managing die off symptoms correctly can minimize many unnecessary discomforts and are essential for the success of the yeast infection treatment, your health and well-being.

Yeast infection symptoms can be unbearable at times. Sometimes, all you need (and think about) is how to relieve these symptoms as quick as possible.
