I have discovered that when our body PH levels are too low (acidic) our bodies become a breeding ground for bacteria, yeast, fungus, viruses, cancer, etc. And in these times with todays diet and toxins in our environment we should definitely take probiotics, enzymes, do liver and digestive cleanses, etc to stay healthy, however I still use to have Bv's, and bladder infections regularly until I read this article on the bodies ph levels, normal or neutral being at 7.0 and how baking soda raises our ph from a lower or acidic level to a normal range where this stuff (Bvs, infections, yeast, etc) cannot survive! I take a level teaspoon every morning and night and use urine test strips to check it and have had no problems since starting this. This of course has nothing to do with the vagina ph levels which should be acidic or at 4.5.

Sometimes life is so simple it's hard to believe it's true. Good luck, Eva
