As a woman, it seems that I have to always be mindful of what I eat, drink, the type of detergent I use and even the type of body wash I use. All in an attempt to avoid those dreaded "women" infections. You may be all too familiar with them, the yeast infection that seems to appear every few months despite the use of over-the-counter drugs and medications prescribed by the doctor. Or even better yet, the bacterial vaginosis, (sometimes called 'BV') which my doctor says there is no real known cause.
After having to deal with the uncomfortable symptoms of these infections one too many times, I have looked into more natural ways of preventing and curing them. I came across this list of superfoods on Women's Health.com that can help keep your nether regions free and clear of any infections.
