As we learned in my previous blog The Mysteries of Menstruation & Menopause – Why All The Drama?, pathogens and toxins are the troublemakers behind reproductive cycle conditions that women face. Let’s examine more closely some of the most common conditions and what we can do to finally heal and optimize vaginal health.
Most Common Vaginal Conditions
Pathogens often cause symptoms near menstruation as the immune system is lowered by 80% at this time. At ovulation your reproductive immune system strengthens to help protect your ovaries, but this means your overall immune system decreases, leaving the rest of your body more vulnerable to infections and conditions.
This is why, close to menstruation and ovulation, pathogens tend to reveal themselves as various vaginal conditions, such as:
- UTIs (Urinary Tract Infections)
- Bladder and Yeast Infections
- Bacterial Vaginosis (BV)
- Reproductive Cysts (uterine, ovarian, vaginal, and cervical)
Underlying Root Cause
Vaginal conditions are caused by pathogens feeding on both toxic hormones that enter the body from outside sources as well as toxic heavy metals. Viruses and toxins work together. A virus in the body consumes toxins and then releases more destructive chemical compounds that denature and injure healthy cells.
The most common troublemaker pathogens affecting a woman’s reproductive cycle are one or more of the over 60 varieties of the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) and one or more of the over 30 varieties of Streptococcus bacteria.
The Road to Deeper Healing
Diet makes all the difference! In order to truly heal, the first step is to remove the foods that feed these pathogens – those foods include: eggs, dairy, and meat (“high protein” is another way for the industries to say “high fat” yet make us believe it is a source of nutrition). The immune system and the reproductive system are completely thwarted when your body is clogged with high levels of fat.
We also must work on reducing our toxin level and removing our heavy metals, as these are favorite foods for pathogens. The most effective way to do this is by making the Medical Medium’s Heavy Metal Detox Smoothie a part of your daily routine.
Begin to bring in plenty of the Holy Four – fruits, vegetables, herbs/spices, and wild foods. These foods provide nutrients to the body and not the pathogens. They also have properties that help attack pathogens.
Focus on drinking 16-32oz of celery juice every morning on an empty stomach. For more information, check out the Medical Medium blog post:

The adrenal glands produce the majority of the female reproductive hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. This means that adrenal health has a direct impact on a woman’s libido and ability to conceive. Instead of relying on hormone replacement, focus on restoring your adrenal health.
