Amongst all the health issues that women face, leucorrhea is also on top of the priority list. Medically, we can define leucorrhea as the condition in which a whitish discharge is seen during the reproductive cycle of a woman. Even though the female genital secretes a pale white fluid to maintain the pH and flush out the harmful microorganisms, leucorrhea exhibits foul-smelling, yellowish green discharge.
Symptoms for Leucorrhea
If women see the following symptoms along with foul smell they must see a doctor immediately:
- Pelvic pain and stomach ache
- Severe itching in the genitals
- Pain in the calf and lumbar region
Physiological and inflammatory leucorrhea are the two types of leucorrhea. Physiological leucorrhea is caused when the defence mechanism of the body acts to restore the chemical or hormonal balance. As the name suggests, inflammatory leucorrhea is characterised by vaginal swelling and very yellowish discharge and is mostly caused due to sexually transmitted diseases or postpartum discharge after delivery.
Primary Cause of Leucorrhea
Blame the hormonal imbalance in a woman’s body as the leading cause of leucorrhea. Estrogen is a female hormone and its excess production accompanied by improper hygiene like wearing soiled undergarments and soiled sanitary napkins and iron deficiency in the body. Women who have diabetes or wounds in the vagina are prone to leucorrhea. Pregnancy, indigestion and constipation can also trigger leucorrhea. There can many other causes of leucorrhea like:
- Unhealthy diet
- Unprotected sex
- Urinary tract infection
- Injuries to the cervix
- Irritation due to contraceptives inserted into the vagina
Treatment and Prevention of Leucorrhea
There is no general course of treatment that is opted for leucorrhea. The doctor generally prescribes antibiotics for a few days and metronidazole to control the foul smelling discharge. It is usually suggested that one must avoid spicy food and maintain a right balance of exercise as well as a healthy diet to prevent such infections.
Among the many home remedies for leucorrhoea, the best one is the regular use of curcumin. Curcumin can be very beneficial while treating such infections. Due to the antimicrobial action of curcumin, it can prevent any kind of secondary infection in the vagina. The anti-inflammatory property of curcumin helps to mellow down the inflammation which is seen in the case of leucorrhoea. The antioxidant nature of curcumin gives rapid healing and relief from the symptoms. Take Shemeric from Bagdara Farms and get rid of the problem of white discharge.
Clinical Trial & Our Product
Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders.
Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.
So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.
Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.
An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.
How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.
We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.
All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
