Acidophilus Prepare a douche with a capsule of acidophilus; use a capsule plus water in the douche. Acidophilus is a special culture usually made from goat's milk. The culture will enhance and replace missing intestinal and vaginal flora. This is useful after antibiotic treatment and to control the effects of a yeast infection.
Apple Cider Vinegar Add 1/2 to a whole cup to pint of warm water for an internal douche to control Trichomonas vaginitis. This acid medium is not suitable for a yeast infection. In both yeast and trichomonas infections you may use acidophilus and/ or a high culture yogurt. If you are not sure what is causing the discharge and itching, check with your physician.
Yogurt Because it is cheaper and has a purer bacillus,'buy a yogurt starter culture and make your own yogurt. Eat yogurt every day, and douche with diluted yogurt. As with the acidophilus, the proper yogurt bacillus also helps to replace
intestinal and vaginal flora destroyed by previous antibiotic therapy.
