OH YA"LL! I suffered with it for years! I think it's related to having a candida override in your body. I itched and went to several top rated gynecologist in The Dallas area who all found NOTHING wrong.Top rated Dermatologist found nothing wrong. Even tho I had had std's and BV! I found the Bacteria thing in a magazine, which made my obgyn angry, but I insisted he test me and sure enough, I was positive. YOU would think he could have smelled it, right? The test was just a scrape and scratch & sniff. FRUSTRATing, our medical profession in the USA!!!
Use tampons and buy cottonelle wipes! Keeping the blood away will help. Also I keep the hair region very short. Just keep scissors for this purpose, and clean them with alcohol wipes every time.
NEVER re-use your towels!! I actually feel better when I dry off with the hair dryer anyway.
Take vitamins. Mostly time release C. The brand doesn't matter. You do need the sustained (or time) release, tho and I thought with rose hips helped.
I take the cheap garlic supplements in gel capsules from wally world, but I take 3 or 4 instead of one and twice a day!
I take turmeric twice a day (wally world) and neem seed also. I had to get the neem capsules at Family nutrition, but I think they might be good.
Stop eating cheese and dairy for a while ( I mean a few months), and when you do start back, keep it to just a small amount and NOT every day. Avoid sugar! And for sure, no artificial sweeteners! Stop consuming alcohol (that's a sugar) except I think red wine is not so bad, there's a balance somehow in that.
Omygosh NO BEER. Believe me I know this from experience.
And NO BREAD!!! This is pretty hard, cuz it means no subway unless you get a salad. And NO pizza, till you get better. Then only once a month.
I am 60 now, and it's over. Mainly because of no sex and no menstral cycle. Been over about 10 years now. Maybe only 5 yrs idk, Just soooo relieved.
I wore a panty liner daily. I feel the wicking away thing helps greatly. I still wear a panty liner daily!
Take pro biotics! I had a whitish tongue for years.
it's almost pink now, but I have to take the probiotic every day. I also had to do a diet yeast cleanse. Lost 15 lbs, because the first few days are clear liquids only. Then only one green veggie. Later I made myself stir fry with a lot of fresh ginger, garlic, and onions. No coffee (thats a bummer, but caffeine WILL help any yeasts bond to your system.) Get rid of any dark colored fillings. I had them replaced as they needed it, but if you can afford, get them out! And do not eat tuna or salmon At least for a while. Mercury is a bonding agent for Yeast!
Wash off all fruits and veggies and I even wash the "pre washed" bagged salad. Do not put anything in your mouth that you think might not be washed off.
Avoid antibiotics, unless you just cannot get well.
If you are on antibiotics. Take probiotics in-between the drugs. Like a few hours after your meds. To put back the Good bacteria that gets destroyed! Drs will tell you this now, but they told me it was hogwash in the 70's and 80's. I did it anyway (most the time), glad I did!
If your tummy is rumbly or you have gas, you better get on my program!
Then take the probiotics (lactobicillious, acidophiulus, or both) They should come in a dark glass bottle. Best if you can find a health store that keeps the LIVE cultures in the fridge. Keep yours in the fridge, even if you buy some that was on the shelf. Lately I take Probiotic 10 which I found at vitamin world. It was not refrigerated, but I store it in my frige.
Work out!!!! I love Zumba (mainly becuz I have the best trainer on the planet, She is highly motivated and it's contagious) while you are dancing there will be little or no symptoms, Or at least that's a great mind trick. You have got to sweat! So get moving!!!
Avoid chocolate, I know! But at least for a while.
Treat this as a body invasion! It is! Do a cleanse of some type. Starve the thing to death!
Cilantro is a natural cleansing herb and if you can eat some every day, it'll sure help your body regain it's immunities. It will also keep arthritis away!
If you can afford it, get a vitamix. Or at least a nutribullet.Even if all you use it for is green grapes with a little fresh parsley and some ice, you will be getting amazing cleansing.
If you have a sinus/allergy problem, do use a saline rinse, but I have been able to quit that, by using an alcohol wipe in each nose cavity twice a day, then a swab with a qtip of tea tree oil in each side. Amazing, no drip or odors. But I have to do that every day. I guess we breathe in all kinds of stuff. TTO is a natural antiseptic! You can get that at wally world, too. Get the pharmaceudical grade.
I had to stop eating corn. Wait till you read the labels of all the stuff you eat. Most of it has corn oil. I guess that is a cheap filler. I developed an allergy to corn, so no pop corn or cornbread (this tough here in the south). I stopped eating catsup and bottled pasta sauce, and bottled salad dressing. Instead, increase your olive oil and coconut oils.
I try to only drink bottled spring water. All kinds of parasites live in your faucet.
And really this should go to the top of our lists:
Pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ our saviour. "help us please, we are weak and we know we are sinners, show us what to do, we KNOW oh Lord You gave your son to SAVE us, and we ask to deliver us from our suffering, because we believe and we know you have the power to give us a miracle! "
God made the body to heal itself, you might have to help it by cleaning up your daily diet and getting some exercise.
Keep the faith!
