Just as there are good and bad bacteria found inside the intestinal tract, there are good and bad bacteria found inside the vagina flora.
The good bacteria are bacteria that keep the tissues healthy and do not cause any type of disease.
The bad bacteria are bacteria that can cause disease if their numbers increase.
How A Healthy Vaginal Flora Looks Like
The normal flora of the vagina includes the following bacteria:
From this list, you can see that many of them can potentially cause disease.
For example, Staphylococcus aureus can cause infections that may become antibiotic-resistant. E. coli can cause infections as well.
The good and bad bacteria depend on each other for their survival while they live in the normal flora.
When the numbers of good bacteria dwindle, the bad bacteria take over and cause disease.
In the vagina, symptoms such as discharge, smell, pain, burning and itching indicate that the bad bacteria have taken over.
Healthy vaginal flora protects the body from infection. It also keeps the tissues healthy.
Daily Habits to Keep the Vagina Healthy
2. Use of Feminine Products
Give serious consideration to the type of sanitary products you use. Pads or tampons that contain deodorant are an insult to the delicate vaginal tissues.
Most sanitary pads and tampons are not sanitary at all!
Instead they contain bleaches, plastics, and dioxins from recycled materials. These chemicals are absorbed by the reproductive system.
It’s no wonder that women suffer from cramps, PMS, fibroids, and reproductive cancers at such high rates. Teenagers are now being diagnosed with ovarian cancer!
Switch to a brand that keeps you dry, has no chemicals at all, is biodegradable, and prevents infections with unique technology.
