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 foundthe 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 bethe 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 aw it out. So when we talk about the pathophysiology of a disease, we'retalking about the mechanism by which that disease occurs. Soorder to understandthe pathophysiology of bacterial vaginosis, we need to take a look at a sample of bacteria
that existsthe vagina. So I'll aw out someGardnerella vaginalis bacteria, and so I'll put this upour key. This is the symbol forGardnerella vaginalis. And I'll aw a few of them around here, but I also wanna show that there are a lot of other bacteriathat existthis sample. So if you really look at it here,

Is Cranberry Juice Good for You
Hey guys, Axe here. A question I got recentlyfrom a patient was, quot;Is cranberry juice good for youéquot; And my answer is, the benefits ofcranberry juice can be absolutely amazing if you're buying the right type of cranberryjuice. In this tutorial, I'm going to talk to you aboutthe many benefits of cranberry juice and what type of cranberry juice you should take andwhat type you should absolutely stay away from. So let's start talking about the manybenefits of cranberry juice. So cranberry juice, the reason it's so beneficialis, cranberries on the Orac Score Chart, which is the antioxidant ranking, they score nearly10,000. That's five times more antioxidants
than spinach and five times more than mostother fruit. So first off, you can see that it is loaded with antioxidants. One of those phytonutrientscranberriesis called anthocyanin, and it has antimicrobial properties. So one of the things that youcan use cranberry juicetreating is urinary tract infections. So again, if you have aUTI, cranberry juice has many benefits. It is a great natural treatment. In fact, when I have patients who have UTIs,I have them get off all sugar and just take a cranberry extract or cranberry juice, alongwith vegetables for several days. And it completely
helps eliminate those UTI infections, so again,one of the main benefits there. Also one of the many benefits of cranberriesis because of the antioxidants, it's a powerful cancerfighter. And we know that most berries,including blueberries and cranberries both, because of those antioxidants, can help fightcancer. Another great benefit of cranberry is thatthey really specifically support the kidneys and the bladder. AndChinese medicine,the kidneys are there, along with the aenal glands, to help your body better deal withstress. So if you're under emotional stress on a regular basis, whether it's relationalstress, workplace stress, or something else
going onyour life to where you know you'restressed out, cranberry juice specifically is fantastic for helping your body deal withstress because it improves circulation. And again, your kidneys are part of your bodythat help deal with stress. And so again, if you tend to be a amatic person or, again,engagedany type of stress, inking cranberry juice on a regular basis can help combat thoseissues. Also, cranberry juice is fantastic for yourliver. When you taste that sourness of that cranberry juice, that's nourishing to yourliver, so it supports detoxifiion, another great benefit there of cranberry juice.
As I mentioned earlier, the question I getall the time, quot;Is cranberry juice good for youéquot; Well, it depends. Here's the cranberryjuice you want to stay away from. If there is any added sugar, and that goes for iedcranberries or cranberry juice both, but if there's any added sugar, stay away from it.The type of cranberry juice you want is, ideally you'd buy the cranberries whole and juicethem yourself. If not, just straight cranberry juice and ideally unpasteurized or lowtemperaturepressed. But again, cranberry juice has tremendoushealth benefits. It can be used to cleanse your urinary tract, cleanse your kidney, supportyour aenal glands, support your liver. You
can see it is one of the world's healthiestfoods, but again, you want to stay away from any with added sugar. I have actually severalgreat cranberry recipes on my website. If you simply go to Axe , you're going tofind several cranberry recipes on there. I know it's popular during Thanksgiving, buthey, you can use it yearround to take your health to the next level. Hey, guys. This has been Axe talking aboutquot;Is cranberry juice good for youéquot;.
