Getting rid of vaginal inflammation in a natural way
In case you didn’t know, a significant number of vaginal infections don’t have any kind of symptoms. So, if you happen to notice a discharge with a strong odor, itching, burning sensation during urination and discomfort during sex it is possible that you are suffering from a vaginal infection. There are many different types of vaginal infections and there are also some sexually transmitted infections and other health conditions that have similar symptoms of vaginal infections. That’s why it is extremely important to see your doctor whenever you experience symptoms of vaginal infections because this is the only way to get the correct diagnosis. Many women who are suffering from one of the two most common types of vaginal infections – vaginal fungal infections and bacterial vaginosis are treating them by using home remedies instead of using medications. Before we go into details let’s see why treating these infections is so important.
First of all, if you don’t have any symptoms of inflammation then you are not aware that something is happening in your body and we aren’t doing anything to solve this problem. In this way we are exposed to all the negative consequences of these inflammations and we are paving a way for new infections. This is the word case scenario that we can expect because having more than one infection can lead to increased vulnerability to sexually transmitted diseases such as herpes and HIV and even development of cervical cancer.
In order to fight the vaginal inflammations you will need to be careful with your diet. For example, you should start eating at least one yogurt every day because it contains probiotics. You should also use a clove of garlic every day (in your salad or soup). Increase vitamin C, D and E intake and reduce the level of animal fat.
If you use any antibiotic few times you should know that it is very likely that the bacteria will develop resistance to it. This is certainly a bad news for most women. However, the good news is that bacteria cannot develop resistance to some natural remedies such as essential oils for example. They have a really complex structure which prevents the development of resistance in bacteria. Many people believe that essential oils will replace pharmaceutically developed antibiotics in the future.
Many studies have confirmed that tea tree oil can successfully stop the growth of the fungus Candida albicans thanks to its antimicrobial properties. The same goes for apricot, marigold, immortelle, pamarosa and geranium. They all have strong antibacterial properties. In addition, marigold comes with strong antiviral and even anti-HIV activity.
In the recent period there are many specially designed natural products which contain active ingredients that can help any category of women. They are useful for pregnant and breastfeeding women and for older and young women too. They use ingredients which were used since ancient times, but this time these ingredients were tested in laboratories and their efficiency was scientifically proven.
