Too Many Remedies Causing Vaginal Discharge?

Posted by Susan (Phoenix, AZ) on 10/13/2006

Hi Ted, Question for you. I tried the flax seed oil, 2 tbsp per day for constipation, not really working, but I have noticed a slight improvement with my skin. I also am drinking the ACV in H20, for my skin, in addition to switching to drinking chlorophyll in water to combat bad breath. I'm also rinsing my mouth with H2O2 after I brush my teeth. Am I mixing too many ingredients here? I've recently noticed a vaginal discharge too. I was taking the ACV to try to combat a long battle with vaginal itching, but now I'm getting a discharge that I never had before. How should I be taking these supplements? Thanks! Susan

The discharge is due to acidity biological terrain, so just avoid sweet and other acid forming food. Take zinc acetate and next time if you take ACV assuming two tablespoon, just add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda or just simply take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda alone. This will help alkalize the body. Preferably the baking soda should be taken at least twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening before bedtime. The zinc acetate is taken at 50 mg/day for about a month since a discharge indicate the inability for body to to fight off the yeast. As a precautionary standard, taking some manganese sulfate and sodium molybdate, 50 mg day for a couple of days should help too. If you can't find manganese or zinc as convenient as you had hope, then just take soy milk un sugared as a manganese substitute and pumpkin seeds. Usually natural foods can be taken any amount that you would normally consume.

Also if you are using some H2O2 as a mouthwash adding some baking soda should further alkalize the body, but this can be done not everyday, but on an as needed basis.
