Vaginal Health Tips

Vaginal health is an important topic for many people, but you’d be surprised how misinformed people are.

I personally feel this comes from the stigmas imposed on our bodies by society, and the internalized guilt associated with them.

I work in an environment where people tell me about their bodies, and I can’t believe how many people apologize for sharing details with me (especially females).

Everyone has a body, and everyone’s body has functions necessary for survival. It isn’t gross, it isn’t dirty, and it isn’t inappropriate.

Your body is your temple, and should be respected, not looked upon with guilt or shame.

Love your body, it is extraordinary.

Now that my little rant is over, let’s move on to some tips on surviving with a vagina by the ever-amazing Laci Green.

In this lovely video she shares some tips for dealing with yeast infections, periods, and urinary tract infections. They use holistic and natural methods, and are effective.

The only amendment I would make is to be somewhat cautious with tea tree oil as it can irritate the skin in those with sensitivities. It is generally safe for most people to apply undiluted, but definitely test it on a small patch of skin before using it neat.

Enjoy these tips when things get a little out of sorts, and most of all love your bodies.

How to Satisfy Cravings with Healthy Foods

As a person who very often indulges random cravings for starches and sweets, I can relate to the millions of others who give in to the temptation of unhealthy foods.

Cravings ChartThis wonderful chart can help us finally understand exactly what our bodies want and need when sudden cravings kick in.

Another thing to keep in mind is thirst. Often I mistake thirst for hunger and try to satisfy the craving with food. Whenever you feel “hungry” drink an eight-ounce glass of water, then wait for ten minutes.

If the craving persists, satisfy it with one of the foods above; however, many times a nice glass of water can make all the difference.

Eat well my friends.
