Herbal medicines are a trusted form of alternative treatment and when it comes to bacterial vaginosis there's no doubting their healing properties. Herbal treatment for bacterial vaginosis strengthens the immune system with special curing properties, found either in the roots or leaves or fruits of certain herbs.
Some of the effective herbal treatments for bacterial vaginosis are:
1. Garlic: Considered to be the best herbal treatment for BV, it is known as 'nature's antibiotic'. It has to be taken in the form of supplements, either orally or vaginally, once or twice a day. Garlic has excellent antifungal and antibacterial properties with which it not only cures the disease but also prevents it from recurring.
2. Tea Tree Oil: It has antimicrobial properties and can be taken vaginally by soaking douches or tampons. You can also add it to your bath oil which may ideally be made of pure apple cider vinegar.
3. Goldenseal: This is another one of the herbal treatments for bacterial vaginosis. Goldenseal has certain chemicals which can fight Candida fungus and bacteria, which are found in the mucus membranes of the vagina. Taken this one to two times a day; 500 milligram of this capsule can treat bacterial vaginosis successfully.
You can also make a herbal douche by using goldenseal root, sage, mullein, apple cider vinegar and raspberry leaf and a drop of tea tree oil to it to get relief. To restore the normal flow of fluids in your body, you can soak dry tracheal leaf in hot water and drink one teaspoon of it before you go to sleep.
