Did you know your vagina has a built-in self-cleaning system? The vagina has the ability to clean itself when it has a balanced pH level, and is regularly secreting fluids that remove the dead skin cells, infection-causing bacteria and other toxins from your body.
A women’s pH level and vaginal discharge can be thrown off balance due to normal activities like menstruation, sex and/or hormonal changes.
These disruptions can easily be fixed by consuming natural foods and drinks that will provide the vagina with the proper balance of acid that is necessary to kill off any infectious bacteria.
A balanced, nutritious diet and drinking plenty of fluids are key to vaginal and reproductive healths. These 5 natural foods are top on our list
1. Watermelon Juice
