I originally started this thread several years ago and am still disheartened to know that there really is no concrete cure. I did want to add something that I believe has truly helped me, in just about every way. It is called Monolaurin and is made from coconuts, but is not coconut oil. It is like a miracle!! I have suffered for the past year with undiagnosable (according to my doctors) stomach issues. Of course, was given the not helpful, catchall diagnosis of exclusion...IBS, which is BS! It just means they cannot figure it out! This is my belief. I even had one gastro doc tell me it was in my head and suggest I go on anti-depressants! Unbelievable. Because of their lack of ability to diagnose / treat / cure, it is somehow in my head. So, as I always have found it necessary to do, I researched on my own, any natural type of treatments.
Anyway, sorry to go off, back to the monolaurin, it is an anti-viral, anti-fungal (yeast), anti-bacterial and I take it orally twice per day. I started with a product by Ecological Formulas, then switched to Lauricidin (these are tiny pearls). Both are taken orally. I have not had any group b strep, yeast, bacterial infections at all since starting it 3 months ago! And my stomach is like normal again! And no colds or any other type of bugs when my family came down with a bad flu type of bug. I took about 1,000 mg 2x per day by mouth. The pearls are about 30-40 mg per pearl, so you just count them out.
Note, start low and slow, because I did not do that and had herxheimer reaction (die off, flu like symptoms) for about a day, start even with like 10 pearls (if you take Lauricidin) and slowly titrate up until you stop having bad symptoms you are trying to treat (group b strep). You can stay on it for life as it is completely safe, or if you prefer not to, try it for 2 months at a minimum. I spoke with the doctor at Lauricidin's headquarters and he gave me so much great info, it is a food and is very safe. I'd double check if you are pregnant or breastfeeding prior to taking it just to be sure.
Just wanted to post this because I'm hopeful it will help others. Also take a good pro-biotic, there are 2 sold specifically for vaginal issues Femdophilus (which states it is oral but others, myself included, have used it vaginally as well, if you look on Amazon you will see in comments section how people use it). The other is Gynatren, this is 2 bottles in the pack one is oral, one is vaginal. Both have helped me tremendously! I know Whole Foods sells both products. Lastly, Boric acid put into capsules 1 x per night for 7 to 10 nights helps treat fungus or bacterial issues vaginally.
Good luck and good health to all.
