· Yeast Infection,Bacterial Vaginosis,Women's Health

Are you struggling with reoccurring yeast infections or bacterial outbreaks? Are you ready to finally receive the relief that you need, naturally? If yes, you've come to the right place.

In this article we'll be uncovering what yeast and bv infection is and exploring natural holistic ways to tackle them both. The key to elimination and remedy is understanding.

So, what is yeast infection and bacteria vaginosis(bv)?

A vaginal yeast infection, also know as candida, is a very common condition that occurs among women. Yeast infections happen when healthy yeast that normally lives in the vaginal canal grows out of control, leading to overgrowth and a change in the woman's flora and pH. This reaction is what causes the intense itching, swelling, vaginal odor, discharge and irritation that women experience.

Bacteria vaginosis is caused by the overgrowth of “bad” bacteria or microflora in the vagina. In BV the overproduction of bacteria upsets the natural balance of the vagina, causing uncomfortable symptoms as well.

**It’s important to note that a healthy vagina does contain bacteria and some yeast cells. But the problem arises when the balance of bacteria and yeast alters in a way that create imbalance.**

There are many reasons why women experience chronic yeast or bacteria infections. A few to list are hormonal imbalances, sti's, vaginal infections, unhealthy sex partners, poor food choices, environmental stresses etc..

However, if you keep treating only symptoms (odor, yellow discharge, vaginal irritation, itching and swelling) without tackling the root cause -- you are only providing a temporary band-aid that's not effective long term. The symptomatic outbreaks will return.

Most importantly, when treating both of these conditions, it's important to treat them from the inside out. It's important to attack the underlying issues, not our symptoms, which is only a response to what's actually happening.

  1. First and foremost, support your body's detox process. Enhanced liver function is imperative at this time. Detoxing your body to help cleanse, replenish, reset and renew your system is always the first step. Grab your gentle detox cleanse.
  2. Starve the yeast. We do this through diet, sugar feeds candida , and fungal and bacterial activity. Reducing your sugar intake, cutting out processed foods and adding more whole food items to your diet helps tremendously. Fruit is limited to low-glycemic choices. No milk, which has the sugar lactose that tends to promote yeast overgrowth and in some cases, because milk can contain antibiotics, it can promote overgrowth. No yeast-containing foods such as alcohol and peanuts are recommended. Remove food sensitivities.
  3. Eliminate stress and environmental factors. Stress weakens our body's ability to fight off the infection and it causes more outbreaks. Practice mindfulness and adopt more zen activities. Try to take it easy.
  4. Use organic feminine care and STEAM. Organic feminine care products are ideal for our intimate spaces. This helps to minimize exposure to chemicals that don't align with the body, and that contribute to more vaginal irritation and imbalance. Take it a step further and STEAM, STEAM, STEAM. Steaming helps treat infection directly in your vaginal canal, and supports your cleansing and detoxing process. The benefits of steaming are endless.
  5. Choose a healthy sex partner. This goes without saying! Choosing a healthy sex partner contributes to your health as a women as well. Make sure your sex partner practices good hygiene and healthy lifestyle choices. Get tested routinely if you or your partner have multiple sex partners.
  6. Invest in a NATURAL anti-fungal and anti-bacterial supplement. Herbs are great at helping to naturally relieve infections. Azadirachta indica is a powerful anti-viral and anti-fungal. This herb has been used successfully for years to treat yeast and bv overgrowth and is known to be more effective than over-the-counter vaginal creams. Our herbal Yeast & BV Tincture  contains Azadirachta indica, along with other helpful herbs that help combat infection for natural relief.
