How to handle BV (bacterial vaginosis)
Your medical doctor has done her best job to mitigate your symptoms when she prescribes an antibiotic or other drug. What we do naturopathically is support your normal immune system and hormone system so that the bacteria that are found in BV don’t want to hang out in your body. No drug can do this, but homeopathy, nutrition, botanical medicine, and other tools can. We also need to balance your female hormones, as BV tends to occur because there is some imbalance. This can manifest as irregular cycles, PMS, cramps, or other symptoms. To truly kick the BV, please see a homeopath, naturopath, or acupuncturist, who can actually help you be healthier.
