DID YOU KNOW...
You are probably neglecting your vaginal health - exposing yourself to a vast array of infections! Lots of us are guilty of neglecting their intimate well-being and paying little to no attention to their intimate flora. Many women suffer from repeated infections of thrush and cystitis. This is because they're unknowingly neglecting to take care of their intimate health!
There are plenty of medications available to treat the symptoms of these painful conditions. Creams, antibiotics and pessaries can help, but how much do you know about more natural solutions?
Why do women get these conditions?
Thrush is caused by the yeast candida albicans
which normally lives harmlessly on your skin, mouth, gut and vagina. When this yeast becomes overgrown, thrush occurs. The onset of bacterial vaginosis is caused by a similar process which involves a change in the vaginal flora coupled with a more alkaline pH. Painful cystitis is caused by bacterial infections. All of these irritating conditions can occur in any woman, but are most common in menopausal women due to hormone levels dropping.

By taking care of your intimate well-being naturally, you can ensure that you don’t suffer from these conditions. It's definitely possible to drastically minimise your chances of getting these conditions if you know how. It’s all about the GOOD BACTERIA!
Ever heard that your vagina is ‘self-cleaning’? Well this is true and it’s down to your vaginal flora! Your vaginal flora helps to protect you from infections and keeps your vagina clean and healthy. When the friendly, beneficial bacteria (lactobacilli) in the vagina is concentrated candida can flourish, creating all of the unpleasant symptoms you know and dread. From irritating itching to a burning sensation, discoloured discharge and stinging. This can happen due to ill health, medications, antibiotics, soap, swimming or hormonal changes.
Conventional treatments do successfully kill off the candida, but they can have a negative effect on your vaginal flora which can make repeat infections likely.
