Lifestyle Changes

I think to keep BV from completely coming back there needs to be a whole lifestyle change. Everyone just focuses on killing the bacteria which is absolutely necessary but the infection is the symptom of something larger. Everything plays a part in how our bodies function. Diet, physical exercises, emotional balance and our immune system all play a part. While trying to eradicate the infections I think we need to watch what we put in our bodies. How many chemicals are you consuming, what type of meat are you eating, how many carbs and sugar are you ingesting, what are you drinking, are you consuming organic veggies or ones covered in pesticides? Emotional balance is a tough one since we are all so depressed and devastated from the infection but this is a big one. Meditation, visualization of a healthy whole you, yoga, Qi Gong are all very balancing practices. Yoga will check off two boxes as it's physical and emotionally balancing. Positive thinking (again, hard to do when you feel awful but necessary) and positive affirmation go a long way. Loving your body. Thanking it and cherishing it and being kind to it and understanding is so important. It's so easy to be angry with it since we feel like it is the enemy when things like this happy. Here is how Louise Hay explains Vaginitis:

Really take care of your body on every level. Don't just drink ACV for a day or so and stop because it didn't fix it. Continue. It's healthy for you. Don't just take Folic Acid for a week and stop because it didn't work. Your body needs it. Continue. Build the immune system. Take probiotics because your body needs it. There are cheap ways...fermented veggies, kefir and homemade yogurt are all less expensive ways to get lots of probiotics into your system. we live in a world of info and youtube is a great reference to learn how to make all these things. Youtube is also a great reference for self healing mediation and to watch videos on emotionally healing the self.

Dr's don't have all the answers. They know the body technically and are told by the drug companies what to give their patients. Not that they don't care but they have very limited knowledge. We've become a very "band-aid" society where we fail to find the root cause and just mask it with medication. This goes for most ailments.

I think we need a full body, mind and soul attitude to heal ANYTHING. It takes time and practice and is a huge commitment and a big lifestyle change. To me it's totally worth it.
