What is Vulvodynia?
According to the Mayo Clininc it's pain, down there, "for which there is no identifiable cause." Well I did identify the cause. For me, it was a diet high in oxalates - you can read all about that here.
I cut out the oxalate foods and fixed my problem - no prescription necessary.
It took about 6 weeks to be completely pain free. Since then (It's been going on two years) I've added all high oxalate foods back into my diet with no reoccurring symptoms.
- Any and all
Veggies (in order of regularity):
- Brussel sprouts
- Romaine lettuce
- Acorn squash
- Apples - no skin
- Sunflower seed butter
- Any and all - if you eat dairy I recommend only buying organic (commercial is full of nasty hormones and antibiotics)
Pretty sparse but it did the job.
Here are the foods that I specifically avoided while eating low-ox
- Sweet potatoes
- All nuts
- Tea of any kind
- Whole wheat anything
- Green bell peppers
