Apple cider vinegar has been something I have used my whole life, but over the last couple of years I came to realize that if can be used for a whole lot more than a great tasting salad dressing. For the last couple of years I have been suffering from bacterial vaganosis, yes the pongy infection that every sane woman dreads.
Now, for most people including myself in the past it has been simple to deal with, a quick course of antibiotics and everything goes back to normal but this time for me things were slightly different. Not only was I constantly aware of the aroma that seems to get stronger as the day went on, but in a similar way to thrush there was an element of discomfort that would leave me struggling through the day at my office job.
After the doctor’s failure to solve this worsening issue I hit the internet desperate to find a solution, after reading a huge number of blogs, forums and general health websites I cam to the conclusion that if I wanted the problem gone for good it was time to take some drastic measures. I had read one particular blog post mentioning the use of ACV (apple cider vinegar) as a way of balancing the internal PH of the Virgina, this seemed to make sense to me and as I had not tried douching before I thought it was worth a shot.
To make the right solution to use in an ACV douche it MUST be diluted with water, as it comes apple cider vinegar is very strong and not something you would want to me using in sensitive areas. I used an 8 – 2 mix of apple cider to water and had no issues
After the first use of the ACV I noticed some initial improvements, but it wasn’t until I repeated the process 4 days later I realized there was no longer any smell or nasty discharge that I had become accustom too. Now days I use an ACV douche one a month as feel anymore often may be a little too much, but have never looked back.
When you go to buy your apple cider vinegar be sure to look for raw, unfiltered ACV as it contains the mother a living enzyme the contains many of the wonderful benefits, as well as using acv in douches I have started to drink a glass a day mixed with warm water and honey, this can help to level the PH of your whole body and get everything back to normal. When making ACV to drink just add one tablespoon to an 8 ounce glass of water.
Hope you guys find this as useful as I did, leave a comment if you have any questions and i’ll do my best to answer them.
