Bacterial Vaginosis Herbal Remedies

Aug 17, 2007
You can use bacterial vaginosis herbal remedies, instead of antibiotics, for treatment. When bad bacteria start to attack a woman's vagina, there are various uncomfortable symptoms that can be experienced. They include burning, swelling, smelly and unpleasant discharge, inflammation, urinary discomfort, soreness, and pain during sex. Typically, conventional doctors would recommend prescription drug medications and antibiotic creams to deal with these symptoms. However, there are also herbal remedies that can help you deal with them.

Naturopathic researchers say that the vagina has its own ecosystem. Both good and bad bacteria can be found in this ecosystem. The good bacteria strains help your body from bad bacteria and other harmful organisms. Bacterial vaginosis herbal remedies help create an inner terrain where bad organisms find difficult to thrive. They can also help restore the vagina's normal pH, reduce irritation and inflammation, and remove the infecting microorganisms. Still, the success of treating this condition depends on correctly diagnosing the root cause of the problem.

Vaginitis results from either a bacterial infection, or from the fungal yeast Candida albicans. For a successful recovery, it is vital that you use the appropriate treatment to target the type of bacteria, yeast or parasite that is invading your body. While undergoing treatment, you should also reduce your consumption of processed sugar, refined carbohydrates or alcohol.

Ask your herbalist about the following bacterial vaginosis herbal remedies to determine which is most suitable for your case:

1. Garlic can help fight against infections as it contains many antibacterial and antifungal properties. This is why it is one of the best herbal remedies for treating bacterial infections such as vaginal infections. If you wish to consume garlic in the form of a supplement, it should contain 5,000 micrograms of alliums (the compound in garlic that contains the highest infection-fighting properties ). Take 1 or 2 garlic capsules per day until the symptoms subside.

2. Goldenseal contains many immunity-boosting properties. It has a chemical that has been shown to fight off bacteria and Candida fungus that reside in the vagina' mucous membranes. Generally, what is recommended is a dosage of about two 500-milligram goldenseal capsules once or twice a day until you stop having symptoms of inflammation and pain.

3. Tracheal is a traditional herb for removing toxins such as bacteria or parasites from your body. You can also use this herb to restore a normal flow of bodily fluids. For an easy to do home remedy, simply soak one teaspoon of dried tracheal in 1 cup of hot water. Drink this as a tea before bedtime. If you dislike the taste of this tea, you can always consume two 500-milligram tracheal capsules before bedtime daily instead.
