Uterine Infection Herbal Treatment
100ml Blend. Dose 20 drops three times daily taken in a glass of cold Rosehips Tea.
The uterus is pretty well protected from infection travelling through the vagina both by the fluids in the vagina which are designed to deal with infective material being introduced through intercourse or otherwise. The cervix at the top end of the vagina is a further barrier and this is designed also to block the path of any pathogens thereby protecting the uterus from infection.
In past ages deaths occurred through infections contracted during birthing when the cervix is fully dilated and unsanitary birthing practices were common.
In the modern age the primary cause for uterine infection has been the use of contraceptive devices inserted through the cervix, which had the potential to introduce infective materials during insertion and also to open the cervix slightly and reduce its effectiveness in blocking infection travelling from the vagina into the uterus.
There were some very infamous inter uterine devices which caused a direct toxic shock to the immune system and untold problems due to their being made of copper and others due to their shape which promoted a great deal of inflammation and therefore potential for infection. Recently inter uterine devices are much less common and uterine infections are less common than thirty odd years ago.
An emerging problem due to the increasing failure of antibiotic therapy is going to place greater importance on hygiene and on traditional medicines as antibiotic resistant pathogens begin to become much more common.
I make up specific combinations of anti infective, immunity boosting and blood cleansing herbs which are particularly well suited to deal with Uterine Infection and the ones in my standard mix are; Buchu, Uva Ursi, Garlic, Echinacea, Rosehips, Yarrow and Golden Seal with the Bach Flower Remedies Crab Apple, Olive and Rescue Remedy.
Drinking 4 or 5 cups of Rosehips daily (hot or cold) makes an immediate difference to your battle against any infection. You may also add fresh lemon juice as well to the Rosehips Tea to provide an astringent tonic to the mucosal lining of the Uterus and provide extra Vitamin C besides.
Maintaining a course of three doses daily will quickly support your body's efforts to clear an infection from the Uterus.
Careful monitoring should be a feature of this particular infection and additional support such as Colloidal Silver and Thuja included in your program if the infection is chronic or otherwise proves to be difficult to clear. Also, if you suspect that it could be a particularly resistant pathogen such as one contracted during a medical examination, insertion or removal of an inter uterine device or during birthing.
