One of the most annoying things you can get as a human being is a thrush. But what is a thrush exactly? A thrush can be defined as: Infection of the mouth and throat by yeast like fungus, causing whitish pat. The scientific name for thrush is Candidiasis. Thrush is a fungal infection provoked by any sort of Candida, most commonly Candida Albicans. Thrush can be very frustrating because it is hard to cure. The purpose of this article, therefore, is to aid you by giving you some practical tips for preventing and curing it.

Home cures

Before buying products or going to the doctor, I recommend trying a few homemade treatments that sometimes will be enough to cure the thrush entirely.


Yoghurt is very effective against thrush. Eating yogurt every now and then should aid to restore the levels of ‘good’ bacteria in your body mandatory to keep Candida Albicans in check. However, it has to be noted that the yoghurt has to be sugar free.


Wormwood is one of the most effective herbs against candida. It has the same effect as yoghurt. Daily consuming wormwood will also prevent candida from occurring at all.

Apple Cider Vinegar 

One of the natural enemies of thrush is acidic substances. Candida yeast cannot survive in the acidic environment that the vinegar creates.

Clove Oil

Clove oil is the strongest natural weapon there is against fungus.  Therefore, it is an excellent aid against thrush.  Because it is this strong, it is recommended to dilute it in something like coconut oil.


However, if these natural cures do not work, it is advised to use one of the following products in order to fully cure from thrush.

Thrush Buster

Thrush Buster is for treating and preventing thrush. One single application is usually sufficient for treatment. This is one of the most effective products on the market. It is relatively cheap too. If all the other natural methods of curing Candida yeast do not work, I would recommend this product first.


Thrush-XX is a little bit stronger than Thrush Buster. If your problems with Candida yeast are really serious, I would go for this one. However, some of the ingredients in it are a bit chemical and may not be very good for human health. Therefore, I would only recommend this product, if the candida yeast is almost untreatable.


Candida yeast is an annoying problem, but fortunately there are many natural solutions to solve it. These homemade treatments are in general very effective. However, sometimes the yeast is so severe that you should prefer to use a product like Thrush Buster or Thrush-XX.
