Herbal treatments for vaginal (yeast/bacterial) infections, cysts, tumors, and fibroidsSean Russell
Females have the burden of bearing common infections that males do not such as yeast/vaginal/bacterial infections, vaginal fibroids/cysts/tumors, and are 10 times more prone to urinary tract infections. The secret here is that herbally basically all of these conditions can be treated similarly. The tough part is not choosing the herbs to use but making the formula yourself. Lets go over some herbs first before we get into application.
Echinacea Purpurea – Great herb used for anti-bacterial purposes, pH balance, and inflammation if applicable.
Huang Bai / Phellodendron – Huang Bai is an excellent herb used for all urinary infections and difficulties. In Chinese Medicine this herb is used for ‘hot damp’ problems that relate to these urinary tract infections, infections, and urinary dribbling. Although there are many herbs for this problem, Huang Bai is not only the best but is also an herb with the ability to be used topically and still work great.
Partridge Berry – Partridge is quite specific for Vaginal problems and works rather quickly and strongly. Part of its healing includes drying the ‘breading’ ground the infection is trying to feed from. You should know that overuse could cause over drying so care should be used.
Some additions could be:
Mo Yao / Myrrh – for fibroids and cysts
Goldenseal – for strong work against inflammation and infection
Ru Xiang / Frankincense – Used for wounds and pus problems
Xian He Cao / Agrimony – Trichomonas Vaginitis
Add whatever else you need, the combinations could be endless!
Now the tricky part comes in the taking. You can try taking a tea, but these herbs are quite bitter. Finding some powder and taking capsules is a better bet.
However, another effective way is a vaginal bolus or suppository. Bolus’ have been discussed before when I showed hemorrhoid herbal remedies that will solve your hemorrhoid problems. This was an excellent treatment for hemorrhoids as rectal suppositories as it treated them directly. Bolus treatment binds the herbs with Cocoa Butter or Kokum Butter as a binder. These butters keep the bolus solid normally at room temperature, but melt at body temperature as well as provide nourishment and healing inside your body.
Bolus’ can be a bit of a trick to make and expensive to source all of the ingredients in such low quantities. However, the actual mixing is easy. Combine the herbs you selected with melted cocoa butter. As it begins to cool form into round cylinders about 1 inch long and 1/2 inch thick.
Put them in freezer to set fully. Sitting out these bolus’ will last about 7 days up to a year depending on your climate. I recommend that you refrigerate or freeze them and let them thaw out before use (I have used them out of the freezer and they work well with inflammation as they are quite cold). Dosage would be 1-3 bolus nightly before bed, be sure to wear underwear as you can have some leakage overnight. You should see results almost immediately, with things such as fibroids and cysts tho it can take time to make changes.

Most fibroid issues and many other vaginal complaints originate from internal hormone balance issues. This also includes acne and hair growth (above lips and shoulders).
