The symptom that is bothering me the most is the odour. It started as a teen during menarche, it wasn’t too bad then-only a couple of days every month. It became more noxious and the frequency increased while I was taking antibiotics for something else two years ago.
I took antibiotics two years ago- this worsened vaginal odour + itching and gave me onychomycosis and a white coated tongue on a normally pink healthy tongue. I did enjoy eating lots of sugary foods and there were many times of stress in my life.
Tests have shown:
Heavy metal: lead
Polycystic ovarian syndrome
long chain fatty acids should be between 1.3-23.7 (I scored 24),
phospholipids should be between 0.2 and 8.8 (I scored 14.6!),
fecal fat should be between 2.6 and 32.4 (I scored 43.)
my nutrient levels could be better.. although I’ve changed my diet a good bit since then…
my adrenals- a healthy score should be between 20 and 40 (I scored 70!!). I wouldn’t mind but the day that I did the test I actually felt more relaxed in comparison to other days that I have had.
Otherwise, bloods, gut permeability, indicans were all fine. It’s so frustrating because it seems that I don’t have candida on paper- but I have the symptoms for it.
I don’t know what to do next. I’ve been to loads of doctors and spent thousands and they haven’t even given me a reason as to why I smell, in fact they can’t smell anything, which is strange seeing as EVERYONE else can. It’s not just a co-incidence.
I don’t know what to do, I don’t know what diet to follow, whether I should follow this one or another one to try to correct my hormones (the zone diet) and in turn hopefully help my odour issue.
I’m thinking about doing a cleanse, but I’m not sure which ones to do and in which order to do them in. Should I do liver, parasite, heavy metals, juice fast?
I don’t even know what I should be taking. I seemed to get a little bit of improvement from taking milk thistle and/or zinc. I’m not entirely sure about this, but going by people’s reactions I think there was a positive change.
I don’t know which one of the following to use.
probiotic down below
coconut oil down below
Progressive HCP 70 / “Florastor”
fecal transplant- yes i’m that desperate
drug for pcos- d chiro inositol
A few years ago, I used hydrogen peroxide + water down below. It really helped, I tried it again after the odour worsened and it didn’t work at all. 🙁
I’m currently taking: milk thistle, zinc, magnesium, vit c, vit d, omega 3+6, pre and probiotics and chlorella.
I’m also taking apple cider vinegar and coconut oil, but I only started to take those two recently.
Anyway, i’d really appreciate any comments as I’ve spent some time crying my eyes out both today and way too many times in the past.
I have to ask what test did you have for the yeast? Blood, stool, etc?
If it is indeed Candida you will want to start an anti-yeast protocol. I cannot comment myself but have read positive results in treating the vagina with pro-biotics (cultured yogurt, capsules, etc.). Lactobacillus pro-biotics are actually more native to the vagina then the colon as some people believe.
you list a lot of good supplements but you must start a good anti-candida diet as well. Until the yeast is reduced or eliminated in the colon you may continue to have your noted symptoms.
The human vagina is inhabited by a range of microbes from a pool of over 50 species. Lactobacilli are the most common, particularly in healthy women. The microbiota can change composition rapidly, for reasons that are not fully clear. This can lead to infection or to a state in which organisms with pathogenic potential coexist with other commensals. The most common urogenital infection in premenopausal women is bacterial vaginosis (BV), a condition characterized by a depletion of lactobacilli population and the presence of Gram-negative anaerobes, or in some cases Gram-positive cocci, and aerobic pathogens. Treatment of BV traditionally involves the antibiotics metronidazole or clindamycin, however, the recurrence rate remains high, and this treatment is not designed to restore the lactobacilli. In vitro studies have shown that Lactobacillus strains can disrupt BV and yeast biofilms and inhibit the growth of urogenital pathogens. The use of probiotics to populate the vagina and prevent or treat infection has been considered for some time, but only quite recently have data emerged to show efficacy, including supplementation of antimicrobial treatment to improve cure rates and prevent recurrences.
