FAQ: Relief From Symptoms of BV
Why did Good Clean Love choose a homeopathic to treat symptoms of BV?
Good Clean Love's homeopathic formula is designed to deliver an effective solution straight to the source. Homeopathy applies non-harmful doses of toxic substances which work together to stimulate a natural healing process. Doing so helps normalize a bodily environment like the vaginal biome. Homeopathic treatment is largely based on clinical experience while the practice was used in the United States, until the early 20th century. It continues to be used in hospitals in the U.K. and increasingly in India, where it now rivals conventional medicine in popularity.
How are homeopathic ingredients used in BiopHresh®?
Homeopathic treatment of BV symptoms is based on the theory that most infections are less likely to occur where the body is in a state of natural, good health. Instead, infections thrive when conditions in the body have been altered to encourage microbial growth. BiopHresh® includes significantly diluted ingredients like Kreosote and Nitric Acid – each toxic in its crude state but proven safe and effective at less than 1 part per trillion. At those levels, these ingredients relieve vaginal irritation, itching, and unusual discharge, and encourage the restoration of a healthy vaginal biome that is less susceptible to infection. We take great care to develop products that are safe, and our use of highly diluted homeopathic compounds Kreosotum and Nitricum Acidum fall well within the safety standards set by the U.S. Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia.
Are the homeopathic ingredients in BiopHresh® effective?
BiopHresh® is effective at reducing the symptoms related to bacterial vaginosis. Even when highly diluted our active homeopathic ingredients stimulate tissues that are infected to encourage a return to a natural state of health. You’ve perhaps heard the phrase “like cures like”. Our formula is based on the scientific principle that conditions within the vagina can be restored when the body’s natural defenses are triggered by the diluted and combined active ingredients. Healing vaginal tissues are then more receptive to the maintaining effects of beneficial lactobacilli bacteria which are included in each BiopHresh® suppository as an inactive ingredient.
What are lactobacilli?
Lactobacilli are a variety of beneficial, probiotic bacteria which occur naturally in a healthy vagina. BiopHresh® introduces more than 5 billion cells of beneficial lactobacilli, which support the vaginal environment as the active homeopathic ingredients trigger healing of vaginal tissues irritated by infection. The entire process is what allows BiopHresh® to effectively relieve recurring symptoms of BV. BiopHresh® supports the vaginal biome with bacteria most closely associated with good health.
There is ample research connecting lactobacilli with positive outcomes related to vaginal health. Those include: The Role of Lactobacillia and probiotics in maintaining vaginal health and Lactobacillus for preventing recurrent UTIs. We also recommend this article about the effectiveness of vaginal tablets containing lactobacilli and the ability of lactobacillus crispatus to inhibit the growth of BV-related bacteria.
What do doctors say about BiopHresh® Homeopathic Suppository?
"As a gynecologist specializing in pelvic medicine and combating BV, recurrent inflammatory vaginitis, treating genital syndrome of menopause and vulvar skin diseases such as lichen sclerosis, I have seen Good Clean Love products be a game changer. For example, Balance Wash and Restore Vaginal Gel have helped my patients improve their irritative vaginal and vulvar symptoms so much that I became interested in learning more about the company. Now, I serve on their medical advisory board to help conduct research and improve our understanding about the vaginal biome. There is no harm in expanding our options to include probiotics, educating our patients to stop douching, and recommending vaginal products that maintain a healthy lactobacilli dominance. I for one am advocating for my patient and looking into all options. In fact, I am conducting my own research about the efficacy of these products and have found that BiopHresh Vaginal Homeopathic Suppository is incredibly effective at combating Bacterial Vaginosis. I encourage all of the providers out there and consumers of personal care products to be open minded and smart; it is not an all or nothing approach. There are companies that are motivated to help patients and genuinely interested in promoting good health, and Good Clean Love is one such company. They have my patients' best interest at the core of their mission. I support Good Clean Love to continue research and development in their vaginal health solutions." - Dr. Cathy Yi, M.D., FACOG
"When women detect a change in their natural vaginal comfort and odor, it should not create an issue with self esteem and a deterrent to physical intimacy. Instead, it should serve as an indicator that their vaginal biome may be affected by unhealthy bacteria, and deserves intervention - this may include seeking consultation with their clinicians and choosing reputable products that have been tested and are devoid of vulvar irritants and chemical additives". - Dr Susan Kellogg, PhD, CRNP, IF, CSC, FCST
