Hi Ladies, struggling with bv off and on for years brought me to a level despair. I tried everything but nothing was a permanent solution. I tried vh essentials, metronidazole, all varities of probiotics and even peroxide, all of these helped but BV always came back.
I hope what I am about to share helps someone get rid of bv once and for all. BAKING SODA!!!
I couldn’t believe it either, but I learned that baking soda is a natural chemical compound, not even sure that makes sense “natural and chemical”, but it does two things for your body’s health. It restores health by cleansing the body through eradicating harmful substances/bacteria. And, it brings your body back into balance without having to introduce harmful toxins to your body.
You know by now that BV is caused by imbalanced bacteria. I thought maybe I was causing this by drinkng 3-4 cups of coffee each day loaded up with sugar and half/half. I also thought that maybe because of exercising 3-4 times per week that I was keeping my vagina too moist. But when I started doing a baking soda “therapy” routine, within days my BV not only cleared up but has NOT returned now for several months and GUESS WHAT!?!!?! I am still enjoying my coffee and workouts.
Here’s how I use Baking Soda.
1. Every morning I take 1 teaspoon baking soda and in mix it into about 12 ounces of water, sometimes I add a little bit more water to dilute the awful taste. It tastes like salt water.
2. I leave a window of 30 minutes before or after I eat to drink this. It may not matter, but I have it my head that I don’t want to mess with the whole digestive process.
3. A good way to start is by cutting the amount of baking soda in half and then over time increase it.
That was it for me. I didn’t need to combine this with anything else. However, if this doesn’t get rid of your BV, I’d take a look at these other home remedies for bv, they may do the trick for you.
I wish you all the best of luck.
