Today, I wanna share with you some tips on how to get rid of bacterial vaginosis naturally without drugs.

Bacterial vaginosis refers to the condition in which the vaginal area will be infected due to the overgrowth of bacteria called anaerobes that commonly exist in the vagina by a small amount.

Actually, this disease is not serious as it can disappear without treatment. However, recurrence is somehow conventional; therefore bacterial vaginosis usually becomes a nightmare for many women with unpleasant odor, discharge and itchiness.

So if you’re looking for natural treatments with no side effects that can help you to cure bacterial vaginosis for good, then you’re in right place.

All you need to do is go further below.



1. Salt water

Salt is a great remedy that can cope with many painful bacterial infections effectively including bacterial vaginosis. Due to the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory compounds found in salt, it can fight against bad bacteria as well as keep vagina hygienic rather efficiently.

Simply, you can add a pinch of salt into a glass of warm water, stir it and use the solution to rinse off your vagina. After that, towel the vagina clean and dry. Repeat the treatment several times per week.

Looking of other ways to solve such discomforts can be a challenge but after reading your post it all makes sense to me now on how best to eliminate this problem. I am a great believer in using such properties as Turmeric, Garlic and Coconut oil in cooking but never thought to use these along with yogurt to help in other areas. Thank you a real help to me.

    • Anytime June! You should still use turmeric, garlic, and coconut oil as these are great to use for your general well-being anyways. Hope you feel better!
