Bacterial vaginosis is an infection in the vaginal tract that commonly occurs in women aged 20 to 30. Bacterial vaginosis is a result of the imbalance between healthy and unhealthy bacteria in the vaginal tract.

Common BV symptoms of bacterial vaginosis include itching, excessive white or grey vaginal discharge and pain during urination or sexual intercourse. The most common problem with bacterial vaginosis is that women who have once been diagnosed with it often experience it again.

Here are a few tips to prevent bacterial vaginosis from recurring.

  • Maintain proper hygiene. The easiest and most logical way to prevent unhealthy bacteria from causing infection in the vaginal tract is probably to wash at least once a day. Make sure that you wash using water and mild soap or an antibacterial feminine wash. See to it that you wipe from front to back to avoid bacteria from the anus from entering the vaginal tract and causing more problems. It is also a good practice to wash up after sexual intercourse to flush out bacteria. Even urinating after sex can help flush out bacteria!
  • Stick to one partner. One common cause of bacterial vaginosis is having multiple partners and thus having more chances of contacting bacteria. Although bacterial vaginosis is not passed between men and women, changes in the normal environment of the vaginal tract by having multiple partners will most likely lead to bacterial vaginosis.
  • Avoid douching. Douching interferes with the normal environment of the vagina.
  • Opt for cotton panties.
  • Do not wear tight jeans or shorts.

Hope these tips can help you away from BV infection. However, home remedies for BV prevention can be found by clicking here.

Make sure that you do thorough research on what your dog needs and remember that each dog’s nutritional needs are different depending on the size, age and breed.

Maintain cleanliness throughout the making process of homemade dog food. Wash utensils in warm water to prevent bacteria. Thoroughly wash ingredients in running water and if you are attempting a raw dog food diet, make sure to properly store ingredients like meat at the appropriate temperature to avoid being spoilt.

Ensure that you are not adding toxic food ingredients into your homemade dog food recipe and be careful in handling eggs and other poultry products that are easily contaminated.

And REMEMBER, not all human consumable food is suitable for your beloved dog.  For example,  you should not feed chocolate to your dog as it is harmful to them. Be careful to check before preparing your homemade dog food.

3 Simple Ways To Treating and Preventing Sinusitis

Sinusitis

Sinusitis

Sinusitis generally refers to the inflammation of the sinuses. Blocked nasal passages due to swelling and inflammation can lead to difficulty in breathing and bacterial infection. There are a lot of ways to prevent sinusitis and some natural ways to treat them at home too.

  • Keep hydrated. Drinking lots of fluids like water, juice, tea or coffee can help in thinning out mucus in your nasal passages. Once the mucus has thinned out, it will be easier to blow them out resulting in clearer nasal passages. Alcoholic drinks should be avoided though as alcohol is said to worsen the inflammation and swelling.
  • Make a saline solution at home using warm distilled water and some salt. Use it to clean up your nasal passages.
  • Steam your face. Simply pour boiling water onto a bowl and breathe in the steam. It would help to drape a towel on your head and shoulders so that the steam does not get out. You can also turn on the shower and stay in the bathroom for several minutes just to breathe in the steam though it would waste a lot of water. Steam can help loosen up blocked nasal passages and reduce swelling.
