Ayurvedic Approach Towards Leucorrhoea:

Leucorrhea is called as Shvetapradara in Ayurveda. Shveta means white and Pradar means Discharge. It is due to the imbalance of vaginal microflora which results in the infection.

In Ayurveda, there are three main energies – Vata, Pitta, and Kapha in the body which are responsible for good health. Imbalance of Kapha is responsible for leucorrhea. Aggravation of Kapha impairs the Rasa Dhatu which results in leucorrhea.

Ayurveda believes that herbal remedies deliver the richness of herbs in an unadulterated, natural form. Moreover, unique combinations help enhance immunity as well as provide endurance, strength, and will.

Needless to mention, herbs are natural & 100% safe. Herbs meant for leucorrhea help enhance the functioning of the female gonads in a natural way. Herbs meant for leucorrhea or white discharge help regulate hormones to facilitate proper functioning of the ovaries and hence naturally cure the illness.

Ayurvedic formulations available at Bhagwati Ayurveda work towards reducing the excess discharge by means of controlling hormone quantities & disturbances caused due to different infections and inflammations.

What are the Cause of Leucorrhoea:

Bacterial vaginosis it occurs due to overgrowth of normally occurring organisms in the vagina. These infections are occurring due to unprotected sex.

Yeast infections are caused by the fungus named as Candida albicans.

Trichomoniasis, a parasitic infection which is caused by Trichomonas vaginal. This infection is mostly transmitted through sexual intercourse.

Vaginal atrophy which is occurred due to decreased hormonal levels after menopause.

With the use of Vaginal sprays, perfumed soaps, spermicidal products, and scented detergents, irritation or allergic reactions may occur in the vagina.
