Another woman's veggie lifestyle method of beating BV: 'The problem is that the American diet is way too acidic, because it is grain based. The only food that actually lowers your pH is vegetables, and our diet is sadly lacking in them. But one thing I found out all by myself is that drinking baking soda water is also very effective at lowering your pH. So what I did was I started drinking a glass of baking soda water first thing when I got up, and right before I go to bed at night. Now you have to do this carefully. You only want to drink baking soda water (8 oz of water with 1/2 a tsp of baking soda) on an empty stomach. This is very important. If you drink baking soda water with food in your stomach, it interferes with your digestion, and this is very harmful and can cause other problems; so only drink it an hour before you eat something, or 4 hours after -- longer if it is a really big meal. But I did this religiously for a month and had no BV. But that still didn't fix my diet. So I had to research online the low acid diet. Now I don't mean you have to become a vegan, far from it. Some vegan diets are too grain based. Yes, even whole grains are acidic; it doesn't matter how healthy they make it sound. Yes all grains, wheat, rice, oats, all grains. Again I don't mean you have to give them up completely, just make sure you eat more vegetables than you do an acidic food like grains, sugars (including fruit) and meat and dairy.


Because you're taking Flagyl, which is a potent antibiotic, chances are that you may get a yeast infection due to intestinal and vaginal flora imbalance. Talk to your doctor about taking oral Diflucan for 3 days or so (anti-fungal) with a pro- biotic. That should help!
