So I have been suffering with BV for like 6 years, on and off. I think it is linked to my intestines. I struggled with digestive issues through my teens, and still have a slow digestive system, tending to get constipated, etc. I can tell my digestive system is weak because I often get backed up, have irregular bowl movements, and have indications on my tongue and skin. My BV got worse after my abortion a few years ago. I am going to try to improve my digestion through diet, but also wanted to experiment with restoring my pH through using baking soda.
***Has anyone heard of drinking baking soda to restore bodily PH as a cure for Bacterial Vaginosis?***
If so, is this based on research you read?
I just started trying this method- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda in a glass on an empty stumoch when I wake. I also have been inserting one 500 mg vitamin C and rosehips capsile inside my vagina after sex or when I have strong symptoms.
I am trying to bring the pH of my body up (alkalinize) my body and lower the pH of my vagina (acidify). I'm also avoiding sugar, dairy, carbs, etc. and eat tons of vegetables, greens, quinoa, spirulina, lemon water, fermented foods, saurkrout, etc. and a little meat.
Thank you so much,
