so it’s no secret that antibiotics are terrible for us. they wreak havoc on our digestive system, mess with our environment, and actually encourage more dangerous, resistant bacteria. i refuse to take antibiotics – and instead have found some amazing natural remedies for things like UTI’s and gynecological situations. these cures have proven more gentle, yet more effective for me personally, so i have to pass them on to you!
YEAST INFECTIONS / BV / ANYTHING WEIRD
you can buy pre-made capsules (they get expensive) OR make them yourself with boric acid and vegetarian capsules. the capsules are meant to be used as vaginal suppositories – so ONLY use them vaginally. boric acid can be poisonous if consumed orally.
i prefer to DIY – that way i’m also prepared if i have my period, and i can just dip a tampon in the powder.
turmeric tea – i like to boil fresh root for 8 minutes and add manuka honey
coconut cbd oil – i love this brand, ojai energetics. i put it on a tampon and use it internally, and also cook with it or add it to a smoothie or tea. it doesn’t make you feel high (i HATE feeling that way) and works quickly to ease pain. i also use it topically on my breasts, which get super sore along my cycle.
