What Do You Know Bacterial Vaginosis and Diet
Do you know bacterial vaginosis is a type of vaginal inflammation caused by the overgrowth of bacteria naturally found in the vagina, which upsets the natural balance. Mostly women in their reproductive years are most likely to get bacterial vaginosis, but it can affect women of any age.
In the same way as pickled cucumbers, kimchi and sauerkraut promote the growth of beneficial bacteria such as lactobacillus, so it keeps the woman’s vagina by keeping it acid. The normal pH of the vagina is the same as tomato juice. But as soon as the pH of the coffee begins to approach, there may be excessive growth of harmful bacteria that it causes bacterial vaginosis, which affects a staggering 29% of American women –
It is almost 1 in 3 women in the United States. This makes it one of the most common causes of vaginal problems among younger women. It affects tens of millions of them. It is usually diagnosed with a swab, when the doctor takes a sample of vaginal discharge and smell to see if they smell the typical smell of dovetail. Traditional risk factors for bacterial vaginosis include lavage, which have been linked to a number of other problems.
So without demonstrable benefits and considerable evidence of harmfulness women should be encouraged not to rinse themselves. Medical professionals need to clearly explain that the vagina naturally cleans itself. Recently, poor nutrition has been added to the list of risk factors.
You seem to be more likely to have bacterial vaginosis, if low levels of phytonutrients circulate in your bloodstream, such as vitamin C and beta-carotene. This indicates a lower intake of fruits and vegetables.
But in recent years nutrition has moved forward in terms of nutrition examination of total nutritional value as opposed to examination of individual nutrients, because it is known that nutrients are not consumed in isolation, that individuals who consume one healthy nutrient, they also tend to consume many others, and that a particular source of nutrients may be important.
What a wonderful thought! So, nutrient-rich food indexes were created, to enable people to get the most nutrients out of their caloric intake.
And the more nutrient-rich one woman’s diet, the lower the risk of bacterial vaginosis appears to be. But why? Well, we think a high intake of fats, especially saturated fats – –
which come mainly from dairy products, nuts and chicken in this country – may increase vaginal pH, thereby increasing the risk of bacterial vaginosis.
So now we know that “the next steps ahead include sharing these findings with gynecologists, obstetricians, general practitioners, as well as raising awareness of meaning optimal nutrition in the normal community, to prevent genital tract infections, reduce related diseases and maintain reproductive health.
