Can Baking Soda Really Cure Bacterial Vaginosis

I have heard a lot of talk about baking soda and its use to cure bacterial vaginosis. I'm not convinced to say the lest. First of all you have to understand what bacterial vaginosis is. It is not an infection as many people think it is actually inflammation of the vagina caused by an imbalance of the vaginas own bacteria. When bad bacteria over runs the good bacteria within the vagina inflammation occurs.

So what about baking soda, well taking half a teaspoon of baking soda mixed with water is supposed to balance the bodies PH level and I can see where this could work but it is far better to build in to your daily diet a barrier against bacterial vagonsis to save you taking drastic measures when you get a flair up of BV.

To maintain a healthy balance try to eat well, as obvious as it seems so many of us eat an unbalanced diet. Make sure you are getting plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables especially good quality green vegetables. Add in a daily intake of yogurt with live cultures in it. I would recommend Activia for this but any yogurt with live cultures would probably do the same. You can take supplementation of acidophilus, these come in capsules you can swallow and are readily found in most health food stores. Another health food store favorite is olive leaf capsules, these are great for all round health and are great at boosting the immune system.

Other things to help with bacterial vaginosis include although obvious keeping clean, learn good habits in vagina cleanliness, especially when it comes to wiping and contact with the anus. Another good tip is to get plenty of air to the vagina. I'm not suggesting running around naked just possible going to bed without underwear to allow the vagina to air dry. I would recommend that you do not douche as this also disrupts the vaginas own bacteria.

Finally a word on alcohol, a lot of people enjoy a drink I sure am one of them but too much alcohol can play havoc with your bodies PH levels and this alone can cause bacterial growth. So if your are having trouble with recurrent BV try giving the alcohol a break for a few weeks and see if you get ant improvement.
