11 Surprising Uses for Yogurt

5. Treat yeast Infections
Along with the healthful bacteria which may help restore the normal bacteria in the digestive tract, the same can work for vagina yeast infections. Yogurt is used for treating and preventing vaginal yeast as well as bacteria infections, and for preventing urinary tract infections.

Some women use yogurt inside the vagina for treating yeast infections and bacterial infections in pregnancy, but most studies have looked at consuming yogurt orally for this purpose. The March 1992 issue of the Annals of Internal Medicine reports that daily consumption of yogurt containing Lactobacillus acidophilus cultures results in a three-fold decrease in the incidence of candida vaginitis (yeast infections).

For preventing vaginal yeast or bacterial infections WebMD recommends a typical dose of 150 mL Lactobacillus acidophilus yogurt by mouth per day.

I was wanting a substitute for cream cheese, so straining plain yogurt sounds like a good idea! Plus, I can use organic,an added bonus!
