When a woman has a BV infection, her vaginal pH is out of balance. Even if she takes antibiotics or uses a home remedy to get rid of the BV, this is usually only temporary because this doesn’t cure the pH imbalance. In this post, we are going to learn how to restore vaginal pH with lemons. This is a long-term fix that will keep those recurring BV infections away.
To restore vaginal pH with lemons, you’ll need to use one to two lemons a day so it would be most economical to buy a bag of lemons rather than individual lemons. If you can, get a bag of organic lemons as they have a more diverse collection of micronutrients than do conventionally grown lemons. However, either will work for restoring vaginal pH. Just be sure to wash conventional lemons before you slice them as they may be sprayed with invisible pesticides and herbicides and you don’t want even a trace of this going into your food or being absorbed through your skin.
Step 1: Drinking Lemon Water
In the morning before breakfast, mix the juice of half a lemon in about 4-6 ounces of water and drink it. Immediately follow this by swishing 2-4 ounces of water in your mouth to remove the residual lemon juice from your teeth. If your BV has been really bad, repeat this at night after dinner.
Step 2: Add Fresh Lemon Juice To Food
Fresh lemon juice added right before you eat almost any savory food will really pick up the flavor of the food, as well as help you restore your vaginal pH. I like to squeeze a very liberal amount on fish. Fresh lemon juice added to a bowl of piping hot soup is also extremely good, especially soups with a chicken broth base, seafood, or coconut milk. Fresh lemon juice with a little olive oil make a nice salad dressing. I also like to add a squeeze or two to my stir frys right before I serve them.
Trick On Getting More Juice Out of a Lemon
You can get a lot more juice out of a lemon if you roll it between your hand and the counter before you slice it. Apply firm pressure as you roll it straight and then roll the lemon at different angles. You can also finish it off by rolling it in circles.
More than almost any other food, fresh lemon juice will help your body restore a normal pH range. Restoring vaginal pH is one of the best ways to fix the problem of recurring BV infections. If you don’t believe me, try it for a month and see if it makes a difference. In the beginning, use at least one lemon a day. Later you can cut back to just using lemon juice on food a few times a week.
