Green Pharmacy, and Ringworm Infection.

Antifungal herbs that can help.

I’ve been thumbing through a fabulous book called  The Green Pharmacy Guide to Healing Foods by James A. Duke, PhD. Under the heading of ‘fungal infections’ of which a yeast infection is one.. several antifungal herbs were pro-offered.

Garlic taken internally or applied topically. Just toss a bulb in the blender and use a cotton ball to apply directly to an affected area. Personally I like to add mine to cooking but sliced thinly and added to broth is one way to eat it nearly raw.

Licorice has 25 fungicidal compounds and you can use the powdered root by adding 7 tsp to a cup of boiling water and simmer for 20 minutes. Strain and use a cotton ball to apply topically to an affected area.

Tea tree Oil is a powerful Antiseptic that works against fungal skin infections (like Ringworm). Candida albicans is terribly sensitive to tea tree oil and many women have found relief with their yeast infections that pharmaceuticals like nystatin and clotrimazole couldn’t cure. Dilute with vege oil 1:1 and use topically on affected areas. For Vaginal use put it in a ‘sit bath’ or warm Douche. Do not ingest this oil. Even a few tsp can be fatal. Yes herbals can be powerful stuff so treat it with respect and do your homework.

Since there are another 7 herbs on the list we will continue this tomorrow..k.
