Naturopathic Treatment for Bacterial Vaginosis

Bacterial vaginosis symptoms are caused by the overgrowth of harmful strains of commensal bacteria in the vaginal tract. These strains are normal residents of the vaginal flora, however when they overgrow, they can cause bacterial vaginosis symptoms due to their pro-inflammatory nature. There are three main reasons as to why these bacterial species can overgrow in the vagina:

01

Poor immune function.

02

Disrupted vaginal microflora. Specific good bacteria in the vagina keep certain bad bacteria from overgrowing. When these good bacteria numbers are lowered, harmful bacterial strains can overgrow and therefore bacterial vaginosis symptoms can occur.

03

Foreign bacteria introduced by a sexual partner.

Factors like antibiotics use, nutrient deficiencies, food allergies and intolerances, hormonal imbalances and poor diet and lifestyle habits affect immune function and the health of vaginal microflora, which is why these factors are associated with bacterial vaginosis.

Therefore, treatment of bacterial vaginosis must address these underlying causes in order to improve immunity and re-establish healthy vaginal microflora that will keep harmful strains of bacteria in check.
