Here are eight reasons to include vaginal steaming in your health + wellness routine.
1. A Balanced & Optimal Menstrual Cycle
Vaginal steaming supports the re-balancing of the cycle and the return of a healthy and consistent period.
- Keep healthy cycles healthy.
- Address uterine fatigue, often the root cause of short cycles.
- Release stagnation, often the root cause of long cycles and missing periods.
2. Pain Free Periods
The root cause of cramps and lower back pain is the stagnated blood that the uterus is contracting in effort to release. Vaginal steaming supports the complete monthly cleanse of the uterus. No stagnation = no reason for the uterus to cramp.
The presence of brown blood before and after the monthly period is an indication of stagnation. If you have this occurrence of brown blood, please know that it is common but not normal or optimal. Vaginal steaming clears stagnation and yields a regular monthly bleed of 3-4 days of fresh red blood.
3. Increased Fertility
The number one indicator of optimal fertility is the presence of a healthy menstrual cycle, including monthly ovulation and a regular healthy period. Steaming addresses the root cause of infertility by supporting the return of balanced and healthy cycle.
Vaginal steaming is also used to cleanse and prepare the uterus for insemination, IVF, and IUI. In these cases steaming is only safe before, never after, the insemination/implementation.
4. Fibroids & Cysts
Vaginal steaming helps liquify and release fibroids and cysts as a non-surgical option to their removal.
