- The sauna helps clear out old menstrual blood and cervical mucus, (common causes of unpleasant odors) resulting in a fresher, more confident You.
Sometimes we don't feel fully sure of ourselves sexually in fear that our natural aroma is not pleasant as it should be .
Mugwort, according to the American Cancer Society, helps treat stomach and intestinal disorders, including cramps, but it has also been used for menopausal and menstrual complaints, along with infertility. The herb stimulates the production of hormones in order to maintain uterine health, and protects the uterus from ulcers and tumors.
Wormwood, similar to mugwort, has been used to aid digestive disorders and immune system strength, while regulating a woman’s menstrual cycle and hormones. The herb is also considered to be antimicrobial and a sedative that can detoxify the uterus.
The combination of these herbs accompanied with some steam, cleanses, tones and nourishes the cervix, uterus, and vaginal tissues.
Bacterial Vaginosis sucks. It's an overgrowth of bacteria in the reproductive tract that results in smelling much-less-than-fresh and feeling itchy in the nether land.
The common treatments for BV are 100% lame. You've got antibiotics that might be effective, but won't stop it from re-occurring. Which it often does -- over and over again. There are some other equally poor options as well and they all have one thing in common - they're totally failing women. They get the BV symptoms to go away. And then it comes right back. Flunk.
Needless to say, women dealing with BV always seem to be extremely frustrated.
In Asian Medicine (of which we are big fans), bacterial vaginosis is understood as a condition that occurs when there is an overly damp environment resulting in excess mucus. The treatment protocol involves two steps: 1) killing the bacteria, and 2) eliminating the excess mucus so that the bacteria can't grow back. Asian Medicine Doctors will often prescribe oral herbs to treat the problem. And they have a good rate of success.
Now, we are not doctors of any sorts but we are experienced in vaginal steam therapy. When we first started dealing with clients who had BV, it was clear that they were also dealing with excess cervical mucus. Our client surveys showed that they all reported having an abundance of thick, white, yellow or green vaginal discharge with an unpleasant smell. We figured it'd be a good idea to steam the mucus out of there so it couldn't house the bad bacteria. In collaboration with an Asian Medicine Doctor, we developed a special vaginal steam herbal blend and we recommended clients do short 10 minute vaginal steam sessions for 10 days straight until all the mucus is gone. We've worked with dozens of women who have implemented this protocol and here's what happens.
At first, the vaginal discharge increases. It may get thicker and flow out more frequently and it still doesn't smell very good. (One woman reported that a "green glob monster" came out of her--until that time she had only seen white mucus and it was never sticky.) That's all a good sign. Getting that stuff out is key. After several days, the cervical mucus will start to lighten up and go away entirely. At the conclusion of the 10 days, the only thing left is clear nectar. (You know the kind--the good stuff that smells like youth and fertility.) By that time, the BV appears to be gone as well. It's just not there anymore.
Now, if you want to go and google "vaginal steaming" we're warning you, there are a lot of naysayers out there. And, specifically, they like to say that vaginal steaming should be avoided because it might upset the natural pH balance of the vagina. According to these opponents, the vagina cleans itself and doesn't need any help. And they're completely right. A healthy vagina with healthy vaginal flora does its job perfectly and doesn't need any extra assistance. But what these commentators fail to take into consideration, is that, when a woman has bacterial vaginosis--an excess of bacterial overgrowth--her pH is already out of balance. That's the nature of the diagnosis. And because of this overgrowth, the good bacteria is overwhelmed and can't do its job.
So we're happy when we come across a woman with BV--because, in our experience--she's only 10 days away from freedom.
