Oral Thrush: How To Cure Mouth Thrush Quickly and Naturally

Oral thrush – Ouch! The mouth is such a sensitive part of the body; even the slightest sore or discomfort in your mouth can really get to you. Oral thrush is common in babies, toddlers, children and older adults. It’s also sometimes found in people with HIV or whose immune system is compromised for one reason or another, such as use of antibiotics, chemotherapy, diabetes, drug abuse, poor nutrition, etc..

Without the right approach, treating oral candida can be frustrating and difficult. Yeast cells are by nature invasive and resilient. Sometimes oral candida can become chronic. It’s important to realize that when mouth thrush is present, there may also be yeast growing in other parts of the body that needs to be addressed.

Symptoms of Oral Thrush:

Some of the most common symptoms of oral yeast include:

  • White, cream or yellow spots in the mouth
  • Slight bleeding if the spots are scraped off
  • Yeast overgrowth may be present on tongue, gums, inside the cheeks, the roof of the mouth or even the back of the throat
  • May cause loss of appetite or, in babies, reluctance to nurse

How to Treat Thrush in the Mouth

Yeast cells love sugar of any kind, so it’s important while you’re combating oral thrush to try to limit your sugar intake, including refined sugar, fruit juices, processed carbohydrates, etc. In adults, alcohol, tobacco, etc. can be irritating to the mouth and will make the problem worse.

The most common approach to treat oral candida is to use prescription anti-fungal drugs, such as Nystatin or Diflucan. However, these drugs carry the risk of serious side effects and many strains of yeast have become completely resistant to them; others may be suppressed while the drug is used but then quickly grow back. Generally, the natural approach is more effective both in the short and long term.

Adult oral thrush also responds excellently to natural treatments, though there are some cases (such as HIV) where it’s best to combine the natural approach with western medicine. To successfully combat oral yeast and keep it from coming back, it’s essential to follow a two step process. The first step is to kill the existing yeast, without also harming your or your child’s body. Using toxic substances or drugs to get rid of the yeast makes it harder to get rid of in the long term.

The second step is to rebuild your natural immunity to yeast. This step is missing from practically every yeast product or recommendation, whether it’s natural or western medicine. Because yeast can be very resilient, the Thrush911 program walks you through, step-by-step how to get rid of yeast safely and naturally.
