PH and Agni.
It is a fact that the Vagina and uterus is being cleansed by itself. She does not need aggressive and stressful showers, soaps or procedures which can bring out of balance the PH in the area. Since our Agni (digestive capacity) from the uterus which is in charge of the metabolisation, separation and elimination of toxins and waste is not working always working at the optimum, and its strength varies per person, we can support the natural cleansing process in a kind and gentle way with the use of herbs depending of the goal and constitution of each individual.
The vagina is a mucus membrane, which maintains a delicately balanced pH level, and when this level is disturbed due to chemical medications, wiping forwards, to the use of hard detergents as soaping, a yeast infection can easily occur, as many other diseases. In between the parts of the membrane that rise, is what is called the venous lakes, in where we find the accumulation of incompletely flushed menstrual fluids from previous cycles. It tends to compile and if so, it can harden over there. With certain warmth, the steam from the plant oils effect positively breaking up these hardness, opening the channels, separating and moving things along, while we can also nourish and restore it in a soothing and comfortable way. This can be taken as herbal infusion, plain medicinal herbs, as vaginal steams or Yoni Pichu (herbal tampons)
Chemicals weaken our Reproductive system and hormones.
Often western medicine and bodily care (tampons, commercial pads, etc. ) weakens female genitalia. Even though some of this toxins have already reached our blood stream, since ¨we cleanse ourselves through our cycles¨, we can support our reproductive system by the natural practice of vaginal steaming, herbal tampons, some herbal preparations and increasing our digestive capacity.
During the herbal steaming, the warmth and moisture increases circulation to the vulva, causing it to swell in order to expose the inner labial mucus membranes. These tissues are very porous and absorbent, allowing the bloodstream to absorb the medicinal oils and carry them into the inner reproductive system, including the uterus, and depending of the length of the steaming can even reach the fallopian tubes and ovaries. They work to help the uterus cleanse and release only what does not belong there. This assures that the next menstruation will be easy and pain-free, helping an egg to be implanted while at the same time, we reduce other possible uterine abnormalities. In cases when steaming is not recommended or for double support Yoni pichu can also help assisting the recovery of the balance.
Nowadays, there are many products available for menstrual care. If you want to prevent disease and keep your reproductive system healthy we recommend you to use chemical free products that don’t harm your health and that at the same time reduce the global waste of the planet. Through menstrual cups or eco pads liners you can always be safe. There are so many brands out there and is always good to reconsider what morals and ethics are behind these companies.
It is a fact that many women find less disturbances during their menses after swapping commercial choices for sustainable and chemical free ones. Choose whatever resonates with you and pay attention to the (agni) from your uterus.
Even though you do not face any issues in the area or during the moon days… Is it working as it should?
Are you facing darkish blood at the beginning or end of your period? If so, then maybe you can support your yoni in a way or another, but always in a loving a caring way without stressing out the body, supporting the natural cleansing process.
