Natural Infection cures

Infections are caused by viruses, fungi and bacteria which are disease causing pathogens. These disease causing pathogens tend to multiply and become invasive and damaging to the cells of the body. Once an infection in the body begins to develop there will be symptoms of redness, swelling, pain, fever and pus in the area of the infection. Sometimes a person who has an infection will develop a cough, sneezing, sore throat or some infections even include person developing diarrhea as a symptom.

Some people do not like to take prescription antibiotics to fight off infections. These people do not like the side effects that are associated with prescription antibiotics. For example, when a person takes penicillin they can have an allergic reaction or they may develop a severe case of diarrhea as a result. For this reason these types of people look for natural infection cures.

There are actually several types of natural infection cures. For example one of the common natural infection cures to treat dental cavities is to take the match stick and put salt on it and then stuff it into the tooth that has an abscess due to the cavity. Salt is considered to be one of the common natural cures to treat wounds that are infected. Salt is even one of the natural cures that you can use to cure a throat infection. You simply dissolve a teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water and gargle it. Salt will usually kill the bacteria in the throat that is causing the infection if you use this when you first begin to get a sore throat.

Other types of infection cures for open wounds include the use of honey or sugar. You can cure an infected cut by pouring sugar on the open wound or by coating it with organic honey. If you happen to have an infected blemish or pimple, one of the natural infection cures for it is to use an aspirin that you have ground into powder and made a paste out it and apply it to the pimple. This natural cure will soothe the infection and reduce the redness and swelling.

If you are a woman who has developed a dreaded case of yeast infection you’re not alone. Many women develop yeast infections due to hormonal imbalances. A yeast infection is actually an overgrowth of fungi in the body. You can use natural infection cures for a yeast infection too. One such cure is to use a tampon dipped in yogurt that has live acidophilus in it. Insert the yogurt coated tampon and leave in place overnight. The yogurt and acidophilus will kill off the excess yeast and cure the infection. Another one of the natural infection cures that a woman with a yeast infection can try is to use a garlic clove as a suppository that you leave in place overnight just like the yogurt coated tampon. Garlic is one of the most inexpensive natural infection cures that you can use.

Organic apple cider vinegar is also listed among the various natural infection cures. Organic apple cider vinegar can be used to stop a sinus infection in its tracks. However you must take apple cider vinegar at the first signs of a sinus infection. Simply add 1/8 to 1/4 of a cup of apple cider vinegar to a 16 ounce glass of water. Sip the water throughout the day when you first feeling sinus infection coming on. Using natural infection cures is not only effective but it is a lot less expensive than going to the doctor and getting a prescription for antibiotics. Of course not all infections will respond to these natural infection cures, but most will. If you are not having any luck with a natural cure then you should go to your doctor.
