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 There A Natural Way To Solve My Candida Symptoms
Good day, Eric Bakker, naturopath. Eric, is there a natural way to solve my Candidasymptomsé How can I cure Candida naturally without ugsé It's absolutely possible to achieve this.You can eradie this thing without resorting to pharmaceutical ugs. You need to be reminded,though, if you're going to talk to me about natural treatment, then you need to look ata natural way of living your life. Now just stop for one moment and ask yourselfthis question, are you living a natural lifestyleé I don't think you are. Because if you've gota serious yeast infection like a lot of people
have who consult me, then you won't be livinga natural lifestyle. You'll be doing things that are contravening the laws of naturalhealth, okayé Now let's just have a look at a couple ofthese factors. What do you think that would beé A common one I see, which I've writtenaboutmy book, Candida Crusher, is people tend to eat the wrong kind of foods. Theytend to eat too fast. They don't chew foods adequately. They eat mealsfront of screenslike computers or Facebook or TV. They hurry. They worry. They stress. They don't sleepenough. They don't ink enough water. They consume too much alcohol and caffeine. Theynever exercise or really get off their butt
and go outside and do some walking and thingslike this. This is living an unnatural lifestyle. So how can you beat somethinga naturalsense, if you don't live a natural lifestyleé Make senseé As I always say, common sensedoesn't really make a lot of common sense for a lot of people. It's not that commonwhen you think about it. People spend hours and hours a day on Facebook. They eat foodout of plastic containers. They ink food out of aluminum cans. They go to bed at weirdhours. And then they turn around to me and say, quot;Eric, I can't get rid of this Candida.How come I can't shake ité Is there any pill I can take or any ug or anything I can doéI've got to get rid of it. It's iving me
crazy.quot; Well, I'll tell you now; this is the leastof your worries because if you don't not only make changes and beat Candida,time, illhealth is going to beat you. And it's going to come and bite youthe butt when youleast expect it and you least want that ill health to rear its ugly head. And it willusually happen when you'reyour 50s or 60s. You'll start developing a lot of symptoms.And then the will say, quot;What do you expecté You're getting older now.quot; I've seen a lot of peopletheir 70s and80s, and it's very rare for somebody who is
70 or 80 not to be on up to half a dozen pharmaceuticalugs. However, I have also seen many clients eventheir 80s and 90s that never takepharmaceutical mediions at all. And these are the people, generally, that either havea strong genetic or predisposition for good health, which is pretty rare; or have a liveda life not contravening these natural laws which I spoke about. These are people thatgo to bed on time. They eat high quality food and less of it. They exercise regularly. Theydon't stress much. They get good quality sleep. They keep good company and keep socially activeinto their older years. This is what I call a natural way of living.And when you're living like this, you have
a much easier chance of shaking a yeast infectionnaturally. So the more you push the boundaries and live an artificial life, the more likelyyou're going to probably be moving into the pharmaceutical ugs sooner rather than later.So think about living a natural way of life. Something I'll speak about on other tutorialclips. So I hope that answers some of your questionson how do I beat this thing naturallyé It is possible, but you need to put a bit ofthought into it. Thank s for listening.
