Jock Itch!

Jock Itch is a common condition that can often be effectively treated with natural remedies.

For natural remedies that can quickly rid you of this common condition try the following:
Steep 4 teaspoons of licorice root powder in 1/2 a cup of hot water for 24 minutes. Let it cool and apply to problem area. This is an ancient Asian remedy for this condition.
Apple Cider Vinegar
For jock itch mix half and half water and apple cider vinegar. Apply to problem area. Japanese rice vinegar has also shown to be effective for this condition. Using the same mix of half and half. Truly an effective remedy for many forms of this condition.
Herbal Remedy
This condition is often caused by a fungal condition. A great fungal remedy is to mix 2 parts echinacea with 1 part thyme. Take a teaspoon of this tincture mix with a cup of water twice a day until the fungal outbreak is gone.

For an external herbal remedy for jock itch steep 1 teaspoon of dried thyme and 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger root in a cup of hot water for 21 minutes. Allow to cool. Using a cotton cloth or pad dip into cup and apply to problem area.

This tree bark is an antibacterial and antifungal herb that can be made as a tea for internal use and as a cream for external applications. There are some precautions if you are on certain medications so be sure to ask a health care professional before taking this powerful herb if there are any concerns.

This is the most studied herb on the planet and has been found both in clinical studies and with thousands of years of practical use to be a highly effective herbal antibacterial and antifungal among it`s many other uses. Try including one or two garlic cloves a day. You can include it in some food or you can grate or crush it and take with water. If you want to avoid bad breath you can do that by not chewing. But the oil inside the cloves is what is so beneficial so be sure to crush well or finely grate and then take with water. This will give you the health benefits without the bad breath.
Elderflower and Calendula Infusions
Many of you may know you can take calendula in ointment form, but you can also take as a tincture. Mix 7g of each of these tinctures with 3 cups (750ml) of water and drink over the course of a day. Do this each day until the jock itch clears.
Tea tree oil
This highly effective herbal treatment is inexpensive and can often be purchased at your local Super Center as well as in your health food store. While it is inexpensive it is an excellent herbal treatment for jock itch. You can apply this neat, (meaning undiluted), but you should test on a small patch of skin first just to be sure there is no irritation. If there is, you can mix this in calendula ointment.

This problem like most illness can often be remedied with a healthy lifestyle. Losing weight, eating whole foods that promote health and discourage fungal and bacterial outbreaks and well as good hygiene and other practices can go a long ways in preventing jock itch and other such conditions.

Illness is in our opinion an imbalance of body, mind and spirit. To regain balance eat more whole grains, vegetables, fruits, fish, nuts and seeds. Meditate, practice daily deep breathing and find a spiritual faith to become actively involved in.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Make the home remedies on this site your first step to a healthy lifestyle.
