Bacterialvaginosis is a disease that's caused by the overgrowth of a type of bacteria that's called Gardnerella vaginalis, Gardnerella vaginalis. And as the name might suggest, this is the most common vaginal infection. Now I wanna put these really big quotes
around the term infection because the thing that's interesting about Gardnerella vaginalis is that it's a bacteriathat's naturally found in the vagina. Now some may consider this to be a sexually transmitted infection, which is interestingbecause it doesn't cause
any problems until there'stoo much of it there. So when we look to the causes of bacterial vaginosis, they are all things that change the vaginal environment. That can include acts like douching, so douching, or rinsing of the vagina. The other is having newor multiple sex partners.
And finally, another known cause is the use of antibiotics. This could be in the case of somebody that has a throat infection or a pneumonia that's on antibiotics which will then attackthe bacteria that exists within the vagina andallow Gardnerella vaginalis to overgrow and cause bacterial vaginosis.
So we've touched a little bit on it here, but I wanna draw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. So in order to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that exists in the vagina. So I'll draw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this up in our key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll draw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat exist in this sample. So if you really look at it here,

antiviral. So doing olive leaf extract isone of the top things you can do to help you cure a sore throat. The second thing you can start doing is colloidalsilver. Colloidal silver actually has antiviral and antibacterial activity in it, and soit is very, very powerful as well at things that can typically cause a sore throat.

Very, veryeffective natural treatment when it comes
to treating sore throat. The third thing you can do is sea salt. Saltwater actually has a soothing effect, and that can actually help naturally treat a sorethroat as well. So again, if you do have a sore throat, I recommend doing a little bitof sea salt mixed in warm water and gargling that several times a day. That can help youkick a sore throat. And last but not least, using essential oils,specifically lemon oil, oregano oil, and peppermint essential oil. Those are what I believe tobe the three most effective essential oils at naturally curing a sore throat.
And so one of the other things you might evenconsider doing is taking a colloidal silver, putting that in a spray bottle along witha mixture of oregano oil, lemon essential oil, and peppermint oil and making a sprayand doing that every 30 minutes.

You really want to giveyour body as much time to recover as you can. So try to sleep 9 to 10 hours a night. Gettingto bed early is very, very important. One of the other things you may consider doingas well is really changing your diet, laying
off the sugar, grains, and doing mostly bonebroth. I recommend making a homemade vegetable soup, basically doing something like chickenbroth with vegetables and a little bit of chicken. But again, broth, vegetables and a chickenin crock pot is ideal. So doing that vegetable soup for every meal throughout the day alongwith those natural treatments of olive leaf extract, sea salt, the essential oils, andagain, colloidal silver, and doing that as a throat spray.

How to Cure an Ear Infection Fast
Hey guys, Axe here, of FunctionalMedicine and Nutritionist. Today, I'm going to share with you how to cure an ear infectionfast. I know ear infections, whether it be adults or more commonly in children, are somethingthat. We don't want children living with that pain,dealing with that issue, but we also want to be all natural in that treatment and reallyhelp support their body in healing in the correct way. There are four things you cando to help heal an ear infection fast, and there are four terrific home remedies thatyou want to consider. The first thing you want to do, and you wantto do internally in the ear, is doing garlic
oil. You can buy garlic oil at almost anyhealth food store. Garlic actually has natural antiviral properties, and the majority ofthe time when a child has an ear infection, it is a virus, not usually a bacteria. This is why antibiotics are completely ineffectiveagainst ear infections. In fact, if you go to your primary care physician and they recommendan antibiotic for an ear infection, I would consider if you should use that ornot. Because they really probably don't know whatthey're doing, unfortunately, because most ear infections are viral. Again, garlic oil,a few drops in the ear is an effective treatment.
The second thing you want to be doing is takingsomething called tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, not putting that in the earbut rubbing it all around the outside of the ear. Tea tree oil has powerful antisepticproperties. It's been used for hundreds of years for the natural treatments of woundsand infections. Again, I would do tea tree oil a few drops.You can mix it with a little coconut oil as well. Rub it all over the ear and all aroundthe ear area. Tea tree oil, also known as melaleuca, is a very, very effective naturaltreatment. The third treatment is actually chiropracticcare. Chiropractic has been shown to be very,
very effective in the treatment of ear infections.What can happen is the spine can misalign in the upper neck, and that can actually affectthe way the body heals and those nerve signals getting from the brain to that area and justaffect the overall healing. We've actually seen. Bring your child toa wellness or a pediatric chiropractor. They can do a very light manual adjustment to thechild. Often sometimes they even just do some light tapping or use an instrument. That canactually heal an ear infection quickly as well. Last but not least, you've got to get to theroot cause of what is causing the ear infection
in the first place. One of the most commonthings is food sensitivities. If your child is allergic to gluten, to certain things likelactose or casein in dairy, to nuts, to citrus, to a load of things, that is actually oneof the biggest causes of ear infection today. What I would consider doing is getting yourchild what's called an I.G.G. food sensitivity test and actually getting them tested forfood allergies, food sensitivities, or food intolerances. That's one of the big thingsto look for. You can get those tests done. They're fairlyinexpensive. Or, if you don't want to do that, then just really watch and listen to theirbody. Notice if they're consuming certain
types of conventional cow's milk or glutenthat can cause the ear infections. But just in general for almost everybody outthere, if your child is getting ear infections, you should get them off gluten and off conventionalcow's milk. If they want to do a little bit of goat's milk yogurt, or something like that,or goat's cheese, most kids do fine with that form of dairy. Again, the conventional cow's milk, the glutenin grain products, those are probably the two biggest culprits when it comes to causingear infections. Again, remember those four things if you wantto help remedy your child's ear infections.
