A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Vaginitis
I had a question the other day about vaginitis.
Vaginitis is a medical condition used to describe various conditions that cause infection or inflammation of the vagina.
Vulvovaginitis refers to inflammation of both the vagina and vulva (the external female genitals).
This inflammation is caused by a vaginal infection from bacteria, yeast, or a virus, as well as by irritation from chemicals in creams, sprays, or even clothing that’s in contact with the area.
Sometimes, vaginitis is caused by organisms that are passed between sexual partners.
The symptoms of a vaginal infection can vary depending on what’s causing it.
Some women have no symptoms at all.
Some of the more common symptoms of vaginitis include:
>Abnormal vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor.
>Burning during urination.
>Itching around the outside of the vagina.
>Discomfort during intercourse.
Your vagina normally produces a discharge that’s usually clear or slightly cloudy, non-irritating, and odor-free.
During the normal menstrual cycle, the amount and consistency of discharge can vary.
At one time of the month there may be a little very thin or watery discharge; and at another time, a more extensive thicker discharge may appear.
All of these descriptions could be considered normal.
A vaginal discharge that has an odor or that’s irritating usually is considered an abnormal discharge.
The irritation might be itching or burning, or both.
The itching may be present at any time of the day, but it’s often most bothersome at night.
These symptoms often are made worse by sexual intercourse.
It’s important to see your doctor if there’s been a change in the amount, color, or smell of the discharge.
To deal with vaginitis it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 6-8 cups of purified water daily.
*Increase your exercise, relaxation techniques, etc.
*Increase essential fats (flax oil, olive oil, Omega-3 oils).
*Increase fresh, raw fruits and veggies; consider fresh juicing.
*Consider a liver and/or colon cleanse.
*Consider herbs, acupuncture, energy medicine techniques, hydrotherapy, etc.
*Address any emotional issues.
*Have a chiropractic assessment.
*Eliminate toxic exposures, both food and environment.
*Eliminate any and all hydrogenated, trans fats, deep-fried foods, margarine, fast foods, etc.
*Eliminate sugar, sweets, white flour products, processed foods.
*Avoid dairy products.
*Avoid tobacco, alcohol, caffeine, soda pop.
*Maintain a healthy weight.
*Understand your medications and possible side effects.
*If you follow a vegetarian lifestyle or low caloric intake, it’s essential to ensure proper intake of protein, B vitamins and essential fats.
*Consider a full candida cleanse.
*Consider Tea Tree Oil and Oil of Oregano.
*Increase garlic consumption because it is an antifungal.
*Research natural feminine products.
*Use only natural, non-toxic personal care products.
*Keep area clean and dry.
*Ensure use of plentiful amounts of Optiflora during and after any use of antibiotics to replenish “good” bacteria that are wiped out by the antibiotic.
