Should you use Eupatorium Perfoliatum in the Treatment of Yeast Infection?

Before making the decision to use Eupatorium Perfoliatum in the treatment of yeast infection, it is good to have a look at the herb as such. This plant is often called the American Boneset and is part of a family of 36 to 60 species.

It is true that Eupatorium Perfoliatum has been used for medicinal purposes for a long time, but it is a toxin. It contains toxic compounds that can cause liver damage. Side effects, from the toxin, include muscular tremors, weakness, and constipation; an overdose may even be deadly. It is therefore advised, very strongly, not to use Eupatorium Perfoliatum in the treatment of yeast infection.

What is Candida?

The fungus Candida is a group of yeasts and Candida albicans is the most significant member of this group. Candida albicans can cause infections (called candidiasis or thrush) in humans and other animals, especially in immunocompromised patients.

“Candidiasis thereby encompasses infections that range from superficial, such as oral thrush and vaginitis, to systemic and potentially life-threatening diseases. Candida infections of the latter category are also referred to as candidemia and are usually confined to severely immunocompromised persons, such as cancer, transplant, and AIDS patients, whereas a superficial infection of skin and mucosal membranes by Candida causing local inflammation and discomfort is common in many human populations.” (WikipediA).

The moment you are under a lot of stress or when your immune system is a little off, like when you have a cold, the yeast infection will return. The only way to get rid of a yeast infection permanently is by restoring the balance in your body.
