Yeast Arrest Suppositories

We prefer this brand because…...

“Yeast Arrest” suppositories are a unique and powerful remedy for addressing and remedying the underlying cause of yeast vaginitis, as well as rapidly relieving the symptoms of burning, itching, irritation and discharge. For many years our patients have found this blend consistently effective. It can safely be used as often as necessary, but it usually works so well on the first occasion that repeat dosing is not needed. The combination of homeopathics, botanicals, and probiotics in “Yeast Arrest” restores the natural acidic balance of the vaginal tissues, and makes the environment less hospitable to yeast. Far better than killing yeast, this formula discourages overgrowth, so the yeast species retreat into a peaceful co-existence with other healthy microbes, the normal balance is restored, symptoms disappear quickly, and the vaginal environment discourages yeast from overgrowing again. We feel this is a far more effective, long-lasting and holistic treatment than antifungal creams and the badly overused diflucan tablets. The homeopathic ingredients are FDA-approved for treating yeast vaginitis. Our patients generally use one suppository twice daily (and wear panty liners) for five to seven days. Leftover “Yeast Arrest” can be stored, as it has vitamin E to keep it fresh.

About homeopathics, boric acid, Oregon grape,

Homeopathy uses infinitesimal doses of herbs or minerals to stimulate the body's own self-repair mechanisms. In “Yeast Arrest”, the four homeopathic remedies borax, hydrastis (goldenseal), berberis (Oregon grape), and kreosotum, are well documented in homeopathic literature and are FDA-approved for leucorrhea, vulvo-vaginal soreness and itching, and cervical inflammation. Each of the other ingredients has an important role in discouraging yeast overgrowth or restoring a well-balanced vaginal pH and microbial environment. Candida yeast and many other microbes naturally live in the vaginal canal, “yeast” is not an infection caused by a foreign microbe that invades from outside. Usually yeast species stay quietly in the background, and co-exist harmoniously with other healthy bacteria. Yeast only overgrows and causes symptoms if the environment is disturbed, if the 'good' microbes that keep it in check are compromised, or if abnormal conditions over-stimulate it to reproduce. These conditions include stress, sleep deprivation, excess dietary sugar or alcohol, honeymoons and other fun times, poor immune function, and low-estrogen conditions that prevent the vaginal tissues from staying moist and supple. This is why we feel that killing the yeast is not an ideal approach: addressing the underlying cause is far more preferable.

Boric acid restores a naturally slightly-acid pH, which allows good bacteria including lactobacillus to flourish and discourages yeast proliferation. Boric acid suppositories have proven to be effective in 98% of women with chronic persistent or recurring yeast vaginitis. Several species of lactobacillus normally populate the vagina, and they contribute to the low pH that maintains a healthy microflora balance. Taking lactobacillus by mouth or introducing them by suppository are both effective methods to colonize the vaginal ecosystem. Lactobacilli prevent yeast and pathogenic bacteria from attaching to the vaginal tissues and multiplying. Oregon grape, containing the active constituent berberine, has direct anti-yeast action. It also fosters and promotes the growth of lactobacilli and good bacteria, and stimulates immune cells in the mucous membrane lining of the vagina. Neem oil is a potent immune stimulant that is documented to be effective for vaginal discharge from many causes: It induces the release of interferon from T-lymphocytes. Tea tree oil has been found in research studies to inhibit susceptible and even robustly resistant strains of candida, impeding their overgrowth.
