There are a number of female health issues that can be corrected with very minor treatment but that many people are too embarrassed to try to seek help for. We’re going to look at some of the easiest fixes out there for some very common problems.
The medical name for bad breath is halitosis, and there are lots of easy fixes for it. Of course, the fix you use should depend on the cause. For most people, the cause is simply a dry mouth, and if they drink more water, then their bad breath will go away. Others need to abstain from eating foods that aren’t as conducive to good breath, such as garlic, pepper and meats, while others simply need to brush their teeth or floss more often.
This one is known as hyperhidrosis, medically, and it can be solved fairly simply as well. You may not be able to stop the underlying cause of the excess sweating, if it is a condition you were born with, but you can treat the symptoms, by sleeping in a temperature controlled room or by using antiperspirants. For those that are caused by health issues, such as diabetes, obesity, alcoholism or a thyroid condition, seeing a doctor can help not only identify the problem but start you on a path to get the help you need.
Another cause of excess sweating is stress, and if you believe that’s the reason for your hyperhidrosis, then you can do lots of things to reduce the stress, such as listen to relaxing music, drink soothing beverages and spend a little time decompressing each day.
Many women don’t want to talk to anyone about health conditions “down there”, but some of those issues can become serious if left unchecked, and if you aren’t sure, it is always best to get some help. This vaginal infection is characterized by a fishy odor and sometimes pain during urination as well as an excessive vaginal discharge. There are some simple home remedies that can make it go away, though.
One of the best treatments is to apply some apple cider vinegar to your bath water (only about 1-2 cups are needed). Then soak it for at least 20 minutes. You can also apply some home remedies to the affected area, such as yogurt or tea tree oil. These are natural bacteria balancing treatments, and since the cause of bacterial vaginosis is a bacterial imbalance, they make the perfect remedy for the situation. If your home remedy doesn’t work, however, and the problem persists, you should talk to your doctor about treatments such as antibiotics like Metronidazole or Clindamycin.
If your hormones are out of whack and you just don’t feel yourself or your body doesn’t function the way it should, you may need to correct an imbalance. The most common cause of this problem is a poor diet, so eating a healthy diet that is rich in heathy fats, particularly Omega-3 and Omega-6 fats, can make a huge difference. Exercising regularly and getting rid of certain beauty products that contain toxins can contribute to balanced hormone levels as well.
