You Are What You Eat – How Food Cultivates Bacterial Vaginosis

It’s time to get honest. Now do you really think that donut and latte has anything “real” in it to feed your body?
Or how about that sad attempt to eat dinner with breaded fish things and French fries? And please don’t tell me that you think ketchup is a vegetable – it’s mostly sugar.
You may treat your body like it's a furnace - throwing anything into it assuming it can “burn” it off.
Well, it just doesn’t work that way. Even a fire burns hotter and more efficiently with the proper fuel.
Your body needs more than fuel (calories). It needs nutrients to stay healthy.
It can’t create vitamins and minerals out of nothing. Junk food has no nutrients to speak of and cannot “feed” your body.
When your body goes on too long without basic nutrients, it gets sluggish. Systems break down and stop working altogether.
Yes, you can get away with eating poorly for quite some time. But then one day you notice an irritation when you urinate.
Your vaginal discharge is odorous. The last time you made love, it burned. What’s going on?
Sooner or later, all of that poor eating catches up with you. Not just with bacterial vaginosis, but also any number of other diseases due to malnutrition.
Your immune system can only do so much with what little you give it.
Now that you have the bad news, what can you do about it? Eat your spinach, Popeye! Seriously.
It's time to find a way to eat all of those things you might have left out of your daily diet.
Not all at once, mind you. That can make you feel crummy, too.
Go easy at first. Teach yourself to like these better choices and before you know it, you'll begin to feel different - better!
One day you’ll notice that you’re not so foggy brained and that you last longer during the day. And that the bacterial vaginosis isn't plaguing you anymore.
Once your immune system – your whole body for that matter – starts to get the proper nutrition it needs, it can get back in the driver’s seat. You actually start to enjoy life again.
All because you started to add healthy eating choices.
The question you might be asking yourself is, "Why don’t you hear doctors telling patients to do this if it would make that much difference in your health?" Many do.
But simply cave to the patient demandsof wanting a quick prescription-based fix for the problem.
Now you can be your own doctor by taking good sound advice to eat healthy food.
Even when we try to eat well, we're disadvantaged. The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The nutrition products I am going to recommend you make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history. They incorporated health building nutritional herbs with the best modern technology to help our bodies cleanse and detoxify so that the cells - the tiniest living units - can be as fully nourished as possible.
This allows the cells to grow, repair and to perform their functions with the best possible efficiency so that we feel and look better and are more able to prevent and fight disease. Once the body begins to clear itself of toxins it can more efficiently absorb nutrition.
