Parasites and yeast in the GI tract can also create inflammation and infection in the vagina. When we eat foods that we have an allergy or intolerance for, they can cause the mucus membranes in the body to react, including the vaginal mucus membranes. The pH of the vagina is very important for vaginal health. Anytime there is poor digestion, the pH of the body is altered, causing more vaginal pain, dryness, and infections.
Other common symptoms that can occur from leaky gut include migraines, heart palpitations, rashes, and allergies.
If you are suffering from any of the above symptoms, your gut is most likely not functioning at its best capacity. It is important first to know whether or not you have any dietary issues, food allergies, parasites, or yeast that might be causing the digestive issues or inflammation. Targeted blood tests can easily determine which foods or food groups as well as parasites might be the culprits. Once the root cause(s) are known, simple adjustments to your diet as well as treatments to detox your body of the irritant parasites (through a course of natural treatments, enzymes, and supplements) will help heal your gut.
It is very important to listen to your body and what it's trying to tell you. If you think that you may have gut issues, I recommend that you speak with your doctor about getting the necessary blood tests to get to the root cause of your symptoms.
I also urge you all to be proactive in ensuring you are at optimal health. You should never accept feeling anything less than your most healthy and radiant self!
