How to Get Rid of Candida Naturally
A friend was sharing recently about her battles with candida through the years and she now swears by an herbal product for anyone wondering how to get rid of candida naturally. If you've struggled with Candida, “a yeast infection” as it is often called, you know that it is a fungal infection that isn't easy to get out of your system. It can affect your skin, under your nails, your throat, mouth and genitals.
How to get rid of Candida naturally:
- Some insist that drinking dairy kefir is the best option for how to get rid of candida naturally–get dairy kefir cultures to make kefir here with instructions on how to make it.
- It's all about gut health, get the best strong probiotics here–use the code KOP for a discount, this is really a MUST. Note that you may need to slowly work up to taking more than 1-2/day to knock out the candida.
- Also for gut healing/cleaning is this colostrum. Read more about all the benefits here and how to get it into your diet here.
- Others who have skin flare ups say that tea tree oil does the trick.
- How Coconut Oil Could Help with Candida Issues
- But here's what Trish says wipes it out for her:
It took me about 8 weeks to feel fantastic! This herbal remedy is a predator of candida. I follow the instructions on the bottle and take it with a little water. Sometimes it might come back after going dormant for a while, then I just take it again for a week; but my flare-ups have lessened over time.” (She insists that you also have to watch your sugar consumption, but if you struggle with candida, I'm sure you already knew that.) “These days I allow myself to have sugar once a week, maple syrup in small amounts is best because it's a polysaccharide and breaks down slowly in your blood stream.”
Where to get this herbal remedy:
- To wipe out candida forever, though…
Joette, my favorite homeopath, says that this remedy in a 200 potency taken once daily (until the candida is gone) is the best for yeast infections to deal with it once and forever.

I tried kefir and coconut oil when we had thrush. Neither worked. I added some colloidal silver to coconut oil and emulsified it. Within a day it was improving and a couple days gone

ketonic diet and fermented foods only….. been there… was horrible… candida under control and stopped and healed the beginning of crohn’s disease….

We did GSE three times a day, a good probiotic at different times, three times a day, and a diet similar to GAPS and paleo, called The Maker’s diet. We did it over a period of 90 days. It was wonderful. There is some dispute about what is in GSE (might want to research it to decide), but it was effective for us, and yeast killers have to be tough. Also found S. Boulardi probiotic. It is not the probiotic we took that summer, but we put it into us sometimes during the year. It is also a yeast, but eats candida and other bad bacterias! Love that stuff. So helpful with food poisoning, too. Whenever holidays or sweet eating times happen, we take GSE and probiotics again to keep the bad stuff away. Our lifestyle is mostly paleo like eating now, but we aren’t super strict. We do not eat lots of sugar, because we don’t want candida to return. This was like ten years ago, so new info. is probably out there…

I know of a product that has helped hundreds of people with this problem! This product contains an ingredient that actually destroys the hard coating of this nasty yeast, which is called the chitin. Message me for the rest of the story!
Ashley Lutz says
Elizabeth beat me to it! I used this same product after trying many other yeast cleanse products/diets. This stuff works!! 🙂
Mary Mack says
For me, Lyme was a major cause of my candida (and my miscarriages). Treating Lyme and eating a ketogenic diet did the trick! There’s a lot of info out there about Keto. I’ve found Maria Emmerich’s site the most helpful.

GAPS diet! She should read the GAPS book by Campbell-McBride. Life changing!

Yep, I mention that in the post too, along with this GAPS starter kit: https://kellythekitchenkop.com/gaps-starter-kit
I use to love your website and articles. Now it all seems like commercials for over priced suppliments. It’s not about the real food any more. I get that you want to make money but it ends up being no better than the other sites out there.
Sheri, are you sure you’re catching everything I post? (If you’re only following via Facebook, they only let people see a fraction of what I post, subscribing via email is the best way to know you’re seeing everything), because most of my posts aren’t on supplements at all. For example, have you seen all my new recipes? Or the post today on homeopathy? Or the post the other day about the gal who healed her severe migraines with raw milk? I truly am not making much with this blog at all. I try to make just enough for it to pay for itself & a little extra if I’m lucky, mostly I just want to help people be well.

and some people cannot have any dairy at all, so they rely on “Dairy-free” probiotics
Anne Kim says
Hello: I like the open-minded feel to this site as well as the comments. Remedies come in many forms. I don’t have a yeast infection but I’ve started making and taking kefir because of the multitude of good live active cultures. Seems to have helped with specific symptoms, no surprise, and general health. Thank you for writing.
I’m interested in buying the book recommended by Natasha Campbell McBride, but would like to clarify the title of the book. In the text/article, it is referred to as “GAPS Diet” but I can not find such title and author. Is the book that’s recommended the “Gut & Psychology Syndrome” as pictured? Appreciate your clarification.
Hi Catherine, yep, that’s the same book. GAPS stands for Gut And Psychology Syndrome.
Duh! Thanks, Kelly! Most appreciated!
I think there is plenty of good advice out there (and amongst these responses), particularly regarding the nutritional requirements to combat candida. I would just add, consider seeing some kind of holistic healer and see what broader issues may need to be resolved to help make it a permanent change. I would also suggest considering a few supplements, zeolite (to help pick up and remove the candida, including spores) and a good probiotic, of course (to repopulate the gut bacteria… especially if your candida has been the result of antibiotic treatment)…
i spent 30 years trying to KILL the Candida in my body with remedies, diet etc., yet within 18 months on a low-carb high-fat Paleo style diet it had gone.
Remedies don’t rid the body of Candida. They are at best a temporary panacaea. You have to change the environment. Make your gut inhospitable and it will go.
Cut out grains, sugar, processed and commercially made foods, and eat REAL natural food, meat, fish, poultry, eggs, lots of non-starchy veg, butter, coconut oil., olive oil, etc. Flavour them with beautiful herbs and spices. Some people can manage dairy, but many have issues with pasteurised dairy products.
I use a homeopathic product called Yeast Arrest – you can find it here:
I keep the suppositories in the fridge (makes them almost ‘frozen’ since they’re based in coconut oil) and when I feel that itch/discomfort, I put one in overnight. I find it stays in your body longer since you don’t move and usually 1 or 2 doses will do the trick. I agree with Kelly: if this happens often and is painful/very uncomfortable, then root causes do need to be adressed.
Thanks for sharing! With even minute amounts of sugar and grains, I often get itchy shins and/or genitals. Of course, staying away from these is best, but when my will power fails, I have found that Standard Process’s Lactic Acid Yeast works quickly to bring my body back to balance. I got muscle tested by my chiropractor to know it was a good fit for me, but I’m guessing it will also work great for others!
