Holistic methods have become very popular in the US, and have become incorporated into allopathic (Western) medicine. The methods are not very expensive and are usually more gentle than mainstream Western medical therapy. I have incorporated holistic methods frequently using naturapathic products into my infertility/gynecology practice. The most frequently seen conditions that I see in my practice are: 1. chronic BV (bacterial vaginosis) which results in a foul smelling vaginal discharge; 2. human papilloma virus (HPV) which frequently results in abnormal pap smears, and depending upon the nature of the virus may increase the risk of developing cervical cancer. Both of these conditions respond well to holistic methods.
