Alternative Remedies For Bacterial Vaginosis
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Bacterial vaginosis is a very common affliction which affects a high proportion of women during adult life. In some, it is a fleeting episode which disappears without any treatment whatsoever whereas in other women, it can be a regular and very unwanted visitor which can wreak havoc on their lives. Antibiotics often have a limited effect. Although they can effectively treat the symptoms of BV, they do not eliminate the root causes, meaning that bacterial vaginosis can quickly reappear. On the other hand. alternative remedies for bacterial vaginosis can be used to good effect, leading to, thankfully, a permanent solution.

A bacterial imbalance is responsible for the symptoms. The normally benefical bacterial becomes dwarfed by a fast growth of harmful bacteria and it is this which causes the uncomfortable and often rather embarrassing symptoms. Very often it is difficult to establish what the actual cause is, as the shift can occur due to various factors from eating a poor diet to a change in sexual partner or even washing the intimate areas too much. Rather ironically, a course of antibiotics for another condition can cause a bacterial imbalance which can, in turn, lead to BV.

Alternative remedies for bacterial vaginosis can take various forms and it is often a case of trial and error to see what works for you. Sometimes, just allowing the body to rebalance itself naturally can work. It is not a good idea to leave BV untreated for more than 3 days, but a day or two won't hurt and you could be saving yourself time, effort and possibly money.

Some of the best known natural ways to treat bacterial vaginosis make use of some inexpensive and easily available ingredients which you might already have at home. For example, plain probiotic yogurt is a good standby as it is very rich in live natural bacteria and will often trigger the formation of your own healthy bacteria. For best results, try eating a pot daily or introduce it directly, via a tampon.

Another simple yet effective way to kill harmful bacteria is to use tea tree oil. Adding around 20 droplets to a bath can gently eliminate the harmful bacteria and help to restore a healthy level. The oil can also be bought in pessary form.

Other very simple and yet effective alternative remedies for bacterial vaginosis are linked with your washing habits. Washing too much can literally "wash away" the protective bacteria and so moderation is the key. Also, avoid using scented soaps. shower gels and detergents as they can sometimes prove too harsh for senstive areas.
