Are you struggling with reoccurring yeast infections or bacterial outbreaks? Are you ready to finally receive the natural relief that you need? If yes, you've come to the right place. Understanding what a yeast infection and bacterial vaginosis is are great starts to naturally remedying your frustrations.
So, what is a yeast infection or bacteria vaginosis(bv)?
A vaginal yeast infection, also known as candidiasis, is a very common fungal condition among women. It happens when the healthy yeast that normally lives in the vagina grows out of control due to an unfavorable environment. Yeast cells multiply and vaginal pH shifts when the balance of good and bad yeast changes. This reaction then leads to overgrowth and is the cause of intense itching, swelling, odor, yellow discharge and irritation.
Bacterial 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 such as: hormonal imbalance, sti's, vaginal infections or pH imbalance. But, if you keep treating your 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.
When treating both of these conditions, it's imperative to treat them from the inside out. It's important to attack the underlying issues - not just symptoms, which is only a response to what's actually happening.
Follow these 6 steps and you're sure to see a change in your yeast and bv outbreaks. If you wish to take it a step further I would also recommend steaming for natural support to treat vaginal infection directly, and to support your cleansing and detoxing process.
