Vajayjay | Yoni
During colonics we may talk about all things health. Literally. Be it physical, energetic or spiritual – you name it – it might get covered. Yesterday we covered douching. Yes, vaginal douching. Maybe the problem lies in the name?
I’m going totally out on a limb here. For some reason, putting water in your vagina gets a bad rap – it seems to be generally understood that this is dangerous. It seems to be a commonly held, yet rarely questioned belief – medical experts say it increases the risk of chlamydia – how does that work? Due to connotations with store-bought apparatus and cultural taboos with odour and ‘feminine hygiene’ I understand a caution around prettifying what is natural. But I can’t help wondering if our ancestors did it instinctively, before they were told it was unwise.
I mean, really it makes zero sense. Women will put an unwashed penis, chemical covered condoms, sex toys, petroleum lube or bleached tampons in their vajayjay, but not water? Mind boggled. Vaginal washing is comparable to cleaning our teeth, using a neti pot for our sinuses, sluicing our colons and washing our faces. When we can’t clean the parts we can’t get to – we have cellular cleansing – herbs, fasting, diets, bodywork and saunas.
If you have candida/thrush – get in the tub (or shower) and use those well honed muscles. Sloosh some water in and out. If you like you can add some garlic, ozone, diluted hydrogen peroxide (no, not vinegar) to target specific maladies.
As natural pessaries (a small soluble block that is inserted into the vagina to treat infection or as a contraceptive) use probiotics, a garlic clove (thread a piece of floss through it for easy removal), coconut oil and oregano (only 1 drop) on a natural tampon, and tea tree oil. But again, no vinegar in a store-bought bottle. This is an adjunct to systemic healing – you want to be addressing your condition holistically also.
Check out vaginal steaming. It’s an ancient practice, and now it’s a thing again. I know Gwynnie and Goop have been slammed for talking about this, along with the use of jade eggs. Until ‘alternative’ or natural practices are used and understood we’ll just keep doing our thing.
And, when in doubt.. back to the water 🙂
