How Can We Use Sour Lemon Juice to Treat Bacterial Vaginosis?

There are many ways to cure BV. One of the commonly used and accepted ways is the use of apple cider vinegar. But is it suitable for treating bacterial vaginosis? I will look at this in detail below.

First of all, let me explain why apple cider vinegar is good for treating BV. The main reason is because it contains "good" bacteria. You might have heard of the term probiotics but these are actually good bacteria which helps to keep the bad bacteria in check. So using apple cider vinegar means that we can kill off the bad bacteria at the same time and therefore cure BV. It really does make a lot of sense.

But the question remains - can we use it to treat bacterial vaginosis? Well there are a few things you should know. I'll mention a couple of options below.

If you are looking for a very easy and simple natural cure for BV then apple cider vinegar is NOT it. If you want to use this method you need to get some concentrated apple cider vinegar. You can easily get this by either buying it directly (most supermarkets sell it) or by making it yourself at home. The concentration level when making it at home can vary quite a bit so you need to test a small amount first before using it on your vagina. When testing, use a cotton swab and dabbing a little onto the vagina.

Another thing you may want to consider is some of the other natural cures. These include tea tree oil, garlic and natural cures such as vinegar. All of these methods have a lot of merit and are perfectly valid. In fact, many of the more popular natural cures can be used in conjunction with each other. However, you will still need to check with a doctor if you want to take this route.

One unusual way to use vinegar to treat BV is to mix it with some honey. Then apply some of the mixture directly onto the vagina. You will need to do this for about an hour a day. You will notice a difference after a while. This method is called the acidic buffer method and works because it restores acidophilus levels in the vagina which was lost during an active infection.

One of the most interesting natural cures involves inserting a piece of string or thread into the vagina. After about an hour you can tie the thread off using the ends to be pulled off later. This method is called the Faginative string method and was invented by a naturopath in upstate New York.

As you can see from this short article, there are a number of ways to use sour lemon juice to treat bacterial vaginosis. Some of these methods have been around for years and others are relatively new. As you can see, you should not take any remedy at face value without first consulting with your doctor. The condition of your vaginal discharge is a good indicator of your general health and it's a good idea to make sure that you know what your normal bacterial vaginosis level is.

What we found out is that one of the fastest ways to clear up BV was to increase the acidity of the vagina. I don't know about you, but I have never come across anything more effective in treating BV than increasing the acidity of my vagina. So how do we increase the acidity? We use an acidic buffer. What an acidic buffer does is remove the "bad bacteria" that are currently living in our vagina.

The other thing you can do to speed up the healing process is to avoid using any type of scented feminine hygiene products. These types of products contain perfumes and scents that will only irritate your vagina further. You will want to switch to all natural products that do not contain any type of fragrances.

After applying the acidic buffer to my vagina, I noticed a huge difference immediately. The red and white discharge was less than before, and their quantity too was considerably reduced. Within a few days, everything seemed back to normal! How can we use sour lemon juice to treat bacterial vaginosis? It's simple. This acidic treatment is very safe and inexpensive.
