In this case study from our partners at Alternative Therapies in Health and Medicine, Betul Ozen, RN, PhD; Mürüvvet Baser, RN, PhD reviews a patient’s history of Candida albicans, infertility and apple cider vinegar treatment to cure the infection.
Abstract: A 32-year-old married woman was admitted with intense vaginal discharge with foul odor, itching, groin pain, and infertility for the past 5 years. Candida albicans was isolated from the culture of vaginal swab. The patient was diagnosed with chronic vaginal candida infection. She failed to respond to integrative medicine methods prescribed. Recovery was achieved with the application of apple cider vinegar. Alternative treatment methods can be employed in patients unresponsive to medical therapies. As being one of these methods, application of apple cider vinegar can cure vaginal candida infection. (Altern Ther Health Med. 2019;25(5):57-59.
