Bacterial Vaginosis is one of the most common forms of vaginal infection which women suffer from. Treatment for vaginosis ranges from antibiotics to bacterial vaginosis home remedy ideas. This infection is caused by overgrowth of bad bacteria in the vagina.
What are the common symptoms of the infection?
1. A fishy smelling vaginal odor
2. A thin grayish, white discharge
3. Itching and burning.
I am a strong believer in natural remedies. These remedies were the only option available for women a few decades ago to cure a number of ailments including bv. If women were able to fight off the infection successfully in the good old days with the help of these remedies, there is no reason why we cannot depend upon these now for vaginosis cure.
Sadly many women who suffer from vaginosis are often embarrassed to discuss about it let alone seek any form of formal treatment. My advice to such women is that there is no harm in talking about vaginosis. Its symptoms are embarrassing but the infection is easily curable. It responds very well to bacterial vaginosis home remedy ideas which you can try discreetly from the comfort of your home.
Simple bacterial vaginosis home remedy ideas are
1. Colloidal silver
The first bacterial vaginosis home remedy which I used was colloidal silver. You can take colloidal silver tablets or drops orally daily until the symptoms of the infection subside. Different brands of colloidal silver recommend different dosage which is normally specified in the label. Read the label carefully and follow the directions for oral consumption.
Colloidal silver can also be used for vaginal application. Mix one part colloidal silver with 20 parts water. Dip a tampon in this mix and insert into your vagina. The antibacterial properties of the colloidal silver are very useful to fight the infection causing bacteria.
2. Oil of oregano
Oil of oregano is an essential oil which is extracted from oregano leaves. It has excellent antibacterial, antifungal, anti parasitic, and anti-inflammatory properties. Depending on the make and strength of the type available in your health store, dilute it with juice of orange or lime and drink it.
3. Fenugreek seeds
Fenugreek seeds can be taken internally in form of tea or used for douching. To prepare the douche take 2 teaspoons of the seeds, add a liter water and heat for 30 minutes. Strain and make use of the decoction in the douche.
Another effective bacterial vaginosis home remedy method is to make use of lady finger. Prepare a decoction by boiling 100gm of the vegetable in half liter of water. Keep boiling till the quantity of water reduces to half. Strain and consume 60-90ml at least 3-4 times daily till all the symptoms of vaginosis subside.
There are many such home treatment methods for vaginosis cure. You may have to try out one or more in combination to figure out what works the best for you. Personally a combination of two such remedies listed in an online guide worked for me. Thanks to internet I was easily able to procure this guide which gave me permanent relief from vaginosis.
