Common Ayurvedic Remedies for Thrush
- Garlic: Garlic can switch off the yeast gene activity. That is the reason it is a very effective herb for treating Thrush. Try to add raw garlic cloves in your salad or as a seasoning rather than cooking them.
- Ginger: Ginger has an anti-inflammatory property and that is the reason this herb is also useful for treating Thrush. Drinking ginger water will help you reduce inflammation. To make this, grate half tsp of ginger and add it to 4 cups of boiling water and steep it for 10 to 12 minutes. Strain the ginger from water and drink it. You can add honey to enhance the taste.
- Neem: Neem is a great herb that has anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. This is a very effective herb for Thrush. Take 2 tsp of neem powder and mix it with water to make a paste and apply to the affected area.
