A bacterial vaginosis natural remedy can be used, instead of antibiotics, for treatment. When bad bacteria attack a woman's vagina, many uncomfortable symptoms can be experienced. These include burning, swelling, smelly and unpleasant discharge, soreness, inflammation, urinary discomfort, and pain during sex. Typically, what conventional doctors would recommend would be prescription drugs and creams to deal with these symptoms. However, there are also natural remedies that can help you deal with them.

Naturopathic doctors say that the vagina has its own ecosystem. Both good and bad bacteria can be found in this ecosystem. The good bacteria strains help your body from bad bacteria and other harmful organisms. A bacterial vaginosis natural remedy helps create an environment where bad organisms find difficult to thrive. It also restores the vagina's normal pH, decrease irritation and inflammation, and do away with the infecting organisms. Still, the success of treating this condition is largely dependent on correctly diagnosing the root cause of the problem.

Vaginitis can happen because of 2 main reasons. It can be either from a bacterial infection, or from the fungal yeast Candida albicans. For a successful recovery, it is important that you use the appropriate treatment to target the type of bacteria, yeast or parasite that is invading your body. In the meantime, you should also avoid consuming processed sugar, refined carbohydrates or alcohol.

Ask your herbalist about the following options for a bacterial vaginosis natural remedy that is most suitable for your case:

1. Garlic can help fight against infections as it contains many antibacterial and antifungal properties. This is why it is one of the best herbal remedies for treating bacterial infections such as vaginal infections. If you wish to consume garlic in the form of a supplement, it should contain 5,000 micrograms of alliums (the compound in garlic that contains the highest infection-fighting properties ). Take 1 or 2 garlic capsules per day until the symptoms subside.

2. Goldenseal contains many immunity-boosting properties. It has a chemical that has been shown to fight off bacteria and Candida fungus that reside in the vagina' mucous membranes. Generally, what is recommended is a dosage of about two 500-milligram goldenseal capsules once or twice a day until the symptoms of bacterial vaginosis recede.

3. Tracheal is a traditional herb that you can use to remove toxins such as bacteria or parasites from your body. You can also use this herb to restore a normal flow of bodily fluids. For a home remedy, simply soak one teaspoon of dried tracheal in 1 cup of hot water. Drink this as a tea before bedtime. If you dislike the taste of this tea, you can always consume two 500-milligram capsules of this bacterial vaginosis natural remedy before bedtime daily instead.
