Ladies, ladies, ladies...Oh women unite
You'd think our academics/med practitioners would have come up with conclusive evidence to find a "alternative"(organic) solution(s). We, the many, have provided various causes, ailments, conditions and an array of FixIT remedies and the like. For some, Congratulation. For others to no avail..
I have BV. I consider my condition, cronic however, my GP thinks otherwise (I'm being paranoid). My Dietition on the other hand recognises my condition! I have had the condition on and off over the years but can't determine exactly. This time (late 2016/2017) it has returned with a vengence. I am at my wits end with ittle social contact and self confidence down the tube. I can still laugh and its encouraging to read there IS hope on this site.
I am and have been free of medications of 10yrs due to a serious thyroid condition yet continue to take those for a heart condition & Cholesterol I am Gluten free (2016)as diagnosed by my dietition in early 2016. While I have lost a considerable amount of weight...BV is still and issue.
To date: I make my own Yoghurt (natural greek) & Apple Cider vinegar are taken daily. Processed sugar & Wheat has dropped considerably. Currently I am trying homemade pessaries using coconut oil with essential oils. So far....ok. I am really relunctant to go down the Boric acid method or the insertion of tampons. As for the BV, Candidisis, Thrush Supplements on the market...way too expensive for someone who could least afford it. Conclusively a dietry change is a MUST at least for me. Identifying the cause I'm still trying to find. A healthy understanding Probiotics and Prebiotics is certainly and insight. And last but not least introducing Kombucha, Kefir, Kimichi and Saukraut etc or the fermentation route has certainly enhanced my taste buds and cooking skills!
So far I am still trying (something). Should I find it. I'll contribute like everyone else.
