Gynecological Disorders – Symptoms, Causes and Treatment

A woman’s menstrual cycle comes monthly from puberty through menopause. Unfortunately a dangerous trend has begun to take place with the addition of so many synthetic hormones that have been added into the food source via chicken, eggs, meat and etc girls are getting their menstrual cycle earlier and earlier and at an alarming rate.

One of the side effects of these synthetic hormones on our young girls is that they are developing breasts at 9 and 10 years of age.

Another side affect of synthetic hormones is severe PMS in women which is caused by the elevated estrogen in the blood. In a recent article at http://www.godswaynutrition.com it states that the “synthetic hormones found in shampoos, conditioners, hair sprays, body lotions, deodorants, make up, finger nail polish, many kinds of papers and plastics and found that structurally these plastics are so close to estrogen that they have been found to fit in the same receptor sites which stops the hormones from being able to do their job. In addition, the average person carries any where from 400-600 chemicals in their body at any given time many of which can cause problems for a women and her menstrual cycle.

Common Gynecological Disorders:

There are many kinds of gynecological disorders that women are afflicted with; lack of menstrual bleeding, irregular bleeding, regular heavy bleeding, abnormal vaginal discharge or pelvic pain.

Irregular bleeding can be caused by polycystic ovary syndrome, eating disorders, extreme exercise, medications or hormonal imbalances while regular heavy bleeding may be caused by fibroids, polyps, cervical lesions or endometrial hyperplasia (which is a thickening of the uterine lining).

Abnormal vaginal discharge may occur from candidiasis (yeast infection), bacterial vaginitis (thin milky discharge and fishy odor), Chlamydia or gonorrhea (bacterial disease spread through sexual contact) and trichomoniasis vaginitis (parasite spread through sexual contact).

How does one propagate healthy vaginal health? There are several key things that you should do. Candida Albicans are a fungus that in many, many people becomes overgrown in the intestines due to antibiotics which offset the delicate balance of the intestinal eco-system. When Candida Albicans become overgrown they lower a women’s immune system and in many cases become systemic infections when they leave the intestines and travel through out the body. There are several things you can do to combat Candida including eat a lot of garlic as it very irritating to garlic, take probiotics to increase the good gut flora to try and bring about balance to your gut flora and drink lots of green drinks and eat green foods. Candida Albicans feed on sugar and literally can not survive in an alkaline environment – candida thrives in an acidic environment.
