Why Allopathic Drugs Do Not Successfully Treat Bacterial Vaginosis

More than one third of women who use prescribed Bacterial Vaginosis medication have a recurrence within 12 weeks. Almost half of those women treated will see the symptoms return in less than a year. The usual reaction of most conventional medical practitioners is to bombard your body with stronger antibiotics for a longer length of time. These antibiotics often cause side effects such as nausea, skin irritation and leave an unpleasant metallic taste in your mouth. The worst side effect of all however is prescriptive or allopathic Bacterial Vaginosis treatments will probably upset the natural vaginal yeast balance and leave you with thrush for which you will need another prescription for anti fungal medication.

Treatments and cures should be about getting the bodies natural balance restored. Once you know why you have symptoms and understand the function of bacteria such as lactobacilli you do not need an extraordinarily high IQ to figure out that the cure for Bacterial Vaginosis lies in replacing the ‘friendly’ bacteria that has been destroyed.

Unlike conventional medicine, Natural remedies also offer an extensive range of treatments. You medical practitioner will offer antibiotics; oral drugs, topical cream or both. The only variation will be the strength or brand. Allopathic drugs should only be taken for a limited time and besides advice on personal hygiene and telling you to avoid certain foods, no preventative suggestions are offered.

This infection is caused by an alteration in bacterial flora. Natural remedies offer a complete range of treatments that will restore the balance without unpleasant side effects. Products such as garlic and neem bark are natural antibiotics.

Homeopathic preparations that include ingredients such as pulsatilla and sepia are very popular and many homeopaths will formulate a ‘tailor made’ Bacterial Vaginosis treatment that takes into account your specific symptoms and condition.

Vitamins and antioxidants are used in BV treatment and prevention. Simple alterations in diet are often enough to completely cure and prevent Bacterial Vaginosis.

Natural BV treatments usually use everyday products that are easy to find, safe and cheap. Many ‘patients’ go on to grow their own ‘medicine chest’ at home. There is never a product ‘recall’ or ‘expose’ of dangerous side effects as we have seen with allopathic drugs. This is the beauty of natural treatments and medication.
