Hostile Terrain: Vaginal Health and Recurring UTI’s

Posted in UTI Causes, and Vaginal Health

(For obvious reasons, I have to get creative if I want to use any pictures on this blog. That one is of the high-altitude Chilean desert.)

Many of the women who contact me about curing their UTI’s naturally are at their wit’s end because they get a new UTI every time they have sex. Talk about a mood-killer, right?

There are 3 factors at play, here, in order of likelihood:

  1. Bacteria present in vagina
  2. Bacteria present in the region of the rectum
  3. Bacteria present on male, fondly known as the Poison Penis.

I’ve discussed what causes #2 here: this post is about how to deal with #1.
Normally, a pathogen that finds its way to your lady parts is unable to make a happy home there, due to the presence of beneficial bacteria and an overall healthy vaginal environment. After a round or two of antibiotics, though, the balance of vaginal flora is skewed and both Candida and pathogens like Gardnerella (causes BV), Klebsiella, E. coli, staph and many more, are able to flourish there. After that, it’s a hop and a skip to your urethra.
I’m not breaking out the ruler, because my thirst for knowledge goes only so far, but we’re talking about half an inch or so from vagina to urethra. Easy peasy for even a couch potato of a pathogen.

The key to restoring vaginal health naturally and effectively is…

…coconut oil. Was that anti-climactic for you, too? 🙂

Its medium-chain fatty acids destroy both Candida, and many types of bacteria.

The antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal properties of the medium chain fatty acids/triglycerides (MCTs) found in coconut oil have been known to researchers since the 1960s. Research has shown that microorganisms that are inactivated include bacteria, yeast, fungi, and enveloped viruses. Much of this research is highlighted in the writings of Dr. Mary Enig Ph.D, and can be found here.

Not only will coconut oil kill most pathogens, it can be infused with things like OLE, ginger, turmeric, or garlic to increase its speed and efficacy.

Coconut oil vaginal suppositories: Take 1 heaping tablespoon of (plain old regular) coconut oil at room temp and drop it into a small Ziploc bag, or a square of plastic wrap. Roll into a cylinder shape inside that plastic, and pop it into the fridge or freezer. (This makes a cylinder you can cut into several pieces for individual doses)
At bedtime, insert your magic bullet well up your vagina so it doesn’t try to slide right back out, wear a pad and sleep on your side. In the morning, you’ll see a colored discharge if you had anything up there that shouldn’t be. It looks like mucus when you’re sick, varying shades of yellow/green. That’s dead germs.

Do that every night until the morning discharge has been clear for 3 days, then do it once a week for a month, and then twice a month as regular preventive maintenance. No more vaginal infections of any sort, ever.

For anyone with a current yeast infection: Add 1/2 tsp ginger and 1/4 tsp turmeric (or one capsule Vitacost or Swanson OLE) to the coconut oil in a small bowl, allow to steep in a warm place, like inside the oven with the light on, for 3-4 hours. Then stir and pour into the Ziploc bag so the liquified oil is lying along the bottom seam of the bag in a cylinder, and place on the freezer shelf so it stays in that shape.
Be aware that turmeric is a lovely golden dye, so you want to wear old sweats as well as a pad, and sleep on an old towel just to be safe. This will tingle strongly when it begins to melt and work, but that subsides within a few minutes, and so does itching and pain. Do that every night till it doesn’t tingle at all when applied, then go to the 2x a month prevention treatment with plain coconut oil.

If you are allergic to coconut oil, which is very rare, but I’ve known it to happen once, you can do the exact same thing with olive oil, but you must steep OLE or ginger/turmeric in it.

After a course of these treatments, which kill Candida and bacterial pathogens but do no harm to beneficial flora, you don’t have to worry about any type of vaginal infection, and you won’t get anymore UTI’s from that source. Your lady parts return to their normal, healthy condition.

      Yes, if you steep both OLE and raw garlic in the coconut oil.
      Get the Herbs of Gold brand to steep in it: it’s MUCH more concentrated than ComVita!
      4 HoG capsules per batch of oil, and 2 fat minced cloves of garlic.

        Hi,
        Ole didn’t freeze. I also tried to insert it in as much as I could but it kept sliding out. Could I soak a organic tampon in this mix and use it with the same results ?

          Yes, you can!

          The oil is usually rock hard after 10 minutes in the freezer…and for best results you can insert while lying down. You have to get it well up in there around the bend, or it will keep popping back out for a friendly visit.

      Timah, olive leaf extract, raw garlic, and cayenne pepper kill Klebsiella together.
      You may also need fresh grated horseradish, which destroys biofilms.
      You’re guaranteed to have a severe Candida problem..I would suggest following Phase I and Phase II to get started, and then follow the Boot Camp protocol after you’ve been in Phase II for a week.

      You can join the Facebook support group to instant message me, and get more support from other women who’ve cured their infections.

    Hi Rebekah, I am not sure if I have a UTI or Yeast Infection… I’ve been suffering from low grade cramping (mostly on the left side of my uterus or maybe fallopian tube?), sometimes I’ll have discomfort when urinating but that is usually once every couple of weeks – if that, and other slight but not unmanageable side effects such as chills. I’ve tried inserting raw garlic into my vagina and noticed a cottage cheese substance the next day. I’ve been told that the raw garlic cures yeast infections. Only did it for three days and then stopped. I guess I’m wondering what your opinion is on what I should do next. Should I continue with the raw garlic or should I move onto the coconut oil suppositories?

    I am hesitant to try the candida kill off diet… I did one last year (slightly different from your suggestion) for about 60 days. I have to be on my feet for most of the day (walking/ exercising outside) and am nervous to feel crappy from the side effects.

    Not quite sure what to do next. Any suggestions would be great, thanks!

      I should mention I have been taking oregano oil, 3 drops daily, in clear vegetable capsules for the last 8 months. Would increasing the dosage help? The essential oil is from the NOW Foods Company, I read good reviews about the product, would like to know if you feel the same!

        Oil of oregano is fine! The best possible thing to have on hand is OLE, honestly. Once you’ve taken charcoal for a bit, you can take OLE and it won’t cause die-off because it will be absorbed into your blood before running into any Candida in your gut, but when it’s in your blood it will seek and destroy pathogens there. Many, many people see strings of Candida in their urine after they’ve cleared Candida from their gut and OLE gets into their blood and cleanses the kidneys and ureters.

      The coconut oil treatments are awesome! You can even mix a little crushed garlic into the oil and make it that way, if you want.

      Activated charcoal removes Candida without side effects…except peeing more frequently, because Candida causes your body to retain fluid, and when you remove Candida, your body dumps the unnecessary fluid. Since you removed it in a way that didn’t cause diarrhea, the excess fluid exits via the kidneys.

      In your place, I would take something like milk of magnesia the night before to ensure the bowels move in the morning, and I’d wake up 2 hours early, take 1500 mg of charcoal with 8 oz water, and go back to sleep. If you do that every day for a week, you’ll remove large amounts of Candida with virtually no symptoms, and it won’t interfere with normal eating times.

    I discovered a really easy way to make the suppositories. There just happened to be a silicone ice tray on the counter when I was first going to make them, the kind that makes tubes of ice to put in water bottles. Bingo! Coconut oil tube! One tablespoon filled up each tube, popped it in the freezer, and broke it in half (as close as possible) when it was hardened.

    Hi Rebekah, many, many,many thanks first of all for all your advices! I’ve been discovering your posts a few hours ago and I’ve been reading them, non-stop, since then.
    I also do suffer from multiple infections in this sensivitive area and I would like to ask for your advice: for 2 years now I wake up with a UTI after every intercourse and the antibiotics litteraly are killing me. Moreover, a few months ago my PAP came out positive for HPV and I am currently taking a lot of medicine to fight back those HPV modifications and also to treat all the UTI’s I am still getting despite numerous treatments (UROVAXOM, all sort of antibiotics, echinnacea extacts , D-mannose that kind of helps me but I am not sure over the dose I should take for profilaxy or treatment etc).
    I feel like the 2 infections are helping eachother in persisting ,and the doctors are only prescribing me antibiotics. Since I am from Romania, I feel that the doctors here are not up to date or willing to help pacients naturally…
    What approach you believe to be the best to follow in this kind of situation, please?

      I would start immediately on the protocol outlined in the Phase I post, and order the best olive leaf extract I could find. Check iHerb.com and look for one with the highest oleuropein content. When you get it, start on Phase II, and get activated charcoal, too. You’re going to want to do a charcoal cleanse of your gut like I talk about in the Boot Camp post, and take as much good OLE as you can get: it’s antiviral as well as antibacterial and antifungal. I would also make coconut oil bullets infused with OLE and ginger and turmeric, and use one every night.
      Let me know how you do, and join the Facebook group if you have an account! You can message me instantly, and we have another lady in the group who’s also in Romania.

      Eleni, make a coconut oil bullet infused with raw garlic and olive leaf extract, and use overnight 3 times, and then make coconut oil bullets with just OLE, and putting a Femdophilus probiotic capsule up there first, apply that for 3 nights. You should be all cleared up by the end. ?
