When I began this vaginal steaming journey, I was so excited and I wanted to start right away. My only dilemma was, what am I going to use to steam this "vajayjay" of mine?? I didn't want to use my toilet. That didn't feel very queen-like to me. (Even though it is a "throne," haha! Gosh, I'm so corny. Still, not my idea of a throne) I didn't have an old wooden chair to cut a hole in it. I didn't have a spare toilet seat top laying around to use over a non-plastic bucket, or anything of this nature. So, I decided to look online and try to buy a vaginal steaming seat made just for this purpose. Sounds logical enough, right? So, Amazon and Google, here I come!
When I tell you I was disappointed with these search results...man! I am going to need someone to tell me why a wooden box with a hole in the top of it costs upwards of $150-$400??! And there was even one seat, that was not really a steaming seat, basically just a wooden toilet seat top that you would have to put on top of something. It was a slab of wood with a hole in it. It costed $70!!
Have you ever done a Vaginal Steam? If you’re not familiar with vaginal steams, get ready to be amazed! Vaginal steaming isn’t some kind of new fad or strange trend. Vaginal steaming is actually the most ancient form of female self care to revitalize the reproductive system.
Vaginal steaming is one of the oldest women's healing traditions. It is known by quite a variety of names such as V-Steams, Vagi-Steams, Yoni Steams, Bajos (which means "down low") amongst the Spanish and Mayans, and in Korea, it's referred to as Chai Yok. Mayan healers and midwives have used vaginal steams for centuries. You may also hear it referred to as womb spa or womb sauna.
So, what's it like? It's like a facial steam, but for your "vajayjay." Yes, I still say, "vajayjay." (side note: my hubby calls his penis the "vajohn." LOL)
Anywho...vaginal steaming is a powerful aid for increasing a woman’s vitality in regulating her menstrual cycle, relieving stress and depression, improving her intimate relationship, and most importantly, resolving reproductive disorders.
Castor oil packs are ah-maaaa-zing!!! From increasing circulation to supporting the lymphatic system to fighting infections and preventing the growth of bacteria, viruses, yeast, and mold to healing scars and internal adhesions to easing constipation, etc, etc! Natural healers worldwide have used castor oil to treat a wide variety of health conditions for thousands of years. The use of castor oil goes back as far as the ancient Egyptians, who used it as a very potent natural skincare elixir and to treat eye irritations. In India, castor oil has been cherished for its skin-healing, digestive-calming, antibacterial properties, and is commonly used in traditional Ayurvedic medicine applications.
One of castor oil's remarkable qualities is its ability to increase white blood cells, and the count of T-11 cells (a unique type of white blood cells that act like antibodies) produced within the body's lymphocytes that help kill bacteria, viruses, fungi, and cancer cells.
Much of the healing benefits of castor oil come down to its chemical composition. Castor oil is classified as a triglyceride fatty acid, and in fact, about 90 percent of its fatty acid content is a rare compound called ricinoleic acid. Castor oil is considered to be quite exceptional because ricinoleic acid is not found in too many other substances, and it's such a concentrated source.
Please listen to me, ladies! This is such a serious topic. When it comes to our health, we have to be our own best advocate! This subject hurts my heart beyond words. But more so, quite frankly, it pisses me off!
So many women go for an HSG, but then quickly develop an infection...due to the HSG! This is a travesty that must be stopped! You ladies work too hard to heal yourselves to then be taken by uninformed, ignorant doctors who will not prescribe necessary antibiotics with HSGs.
For a long time, up until very recently, I was under the false presumption that all doctors do prescribe antibiotics with an HSG. Sadly, I've come to find out, many don't. I have spoken on the importance of antibiotics with HSG a few times, but today, I realized that it needs to be addressed in an article all on its own.
People must know that the correct medical name for the therapeutic use of natural enzymes is "Systemic Enzyme Therapy." This means that enzymes flow throughout our body, producing the desired healing effects.
For an accurate description of Systemic Enzyme Therapy, one needs to know a little bit about the structure and function of enzymes, in general.
You must know that without enzymes, there is no possibility of life, in animals, plants or persons. Enzymes are essential for each and every reaction in a living organism.
We could even follow the arising of life on earth, if we think of enzymes that were necessary for the evolution in each stage. Oxygen from the air arose because certain new enzymes were formed by single plants that released oxygen. These plants had learned to produce certain enzymes that separate oxygen from carbon dioxide in the air. Today, we accurately know how this works...
THE BIG QUESTION:
WHY DOES IT TAKE TWO CAPSULES FOR THE 260,000SPU DOSE?
Legit concern. After all, other brands appear to have a similar dose with only one capsule. The key word there is "appear." There are some very good explanations for this. Keep reading, and this article will address this question in depth.
Biomedic Labs (Specialty Enzymes) has the largest share of enteric-coated serrapeptase in the world --- about 80%. In fact, other companies buy from Specialty Enzymes because the quality of their enzymes are bar none. Some companies are offering a cheap product, and you simply cannot compare those products with Specialty Enzymes. Cheap brands offer less than stellar quality products. Let's discuss.
ENZYMES are Bio-catalysts, i.e. substances which accelerate a certain chemical reaction without actually being consumed themselves. They are found in every cell of all living beings, from simple single cellular organisms to highly complex multicellular organisms, including human beings.
ENZYMES form an important part of our daily lives; from assisting in the production of the food we eat, to contributing to the care of our health by providing therapeutic agents or sensitive and specific diagnostic tests.
The most frequent biochemical reaction used when applying industrial enzymes is the hydrolytic decomposition of high molecular weight substances such as starch, proteins, cellulose, etc. ENZYMES are composed of proteins and also react as such. They occur throughout nature and control the build-up and decomposition of essential matter in vegetable and animal organisms.

Enzymes That Work on Specific Food Types or Compounds
Specific enzymes work on specific foods. You need the right type of enzyme for the foods you want it to break down. Think of the foods you have problems with and then choose a product that contains at least those types of enzymes. Here is a list of the common enzyme types and foods they act on.
Digestive enzymes are enzymes that break down food into usable material. The major different types of digestive enzymes are:
Amylases - breaks down carbohydrates, starches, and sugars which are prevalent in potatoes, fruits, vegetables, and many snack foods
Lactase - breaks down lactose (milk sugars)
Diastase - digests vegetable starch
Sucrase - digests complex sugars and starches
Silk Worm Enzymes For Carotid Artery Blockage
Dr H. A. Nieper, Editor:
I informed you some years ago that Serrapeptase is apparently active in the cleaning of coronary arteries from occluding layers. The results are so spectacular that even Tom Valentine reported on this progress in the US (DC) press after speaking to several parties here.
Serrapeptase is an enzyme produced by serratia bacteria living on silkworms. With this enzyme the worms melt a hole out of the cocoon. Unlike other enzymes in the field of biology, Serrapeptase dissolves dead' tissue like or e.g. not both silk and apparently also fibrinoid layers in the arteries which chemically could be compared to silk.
Systemic Enzymes & Their Importance in Maintaining Healthy Lungs & Fibrin Levels
A primary benefit of natural enzymes is eliminating and preventing scar tissue and fibrosis. Fibrosis itself is scar tissue. As we age, fibrosis becomes a leading cause of eventual death. Around our late 20's our bodies being to produce a diminishing output of enzymes and by the time we reach our 40's we produce very little enzymes. Cystic Fibrosis patients have virtually no enzyme production to speak of, and even cystic fibrosis children seldom make it past their 20's before they die of the restriction and shrinkage in the lungs from the formation of fibrosis or scar tissue.
Study Shows Serrapeptase is Stronger than Trypsin, Chymotrypsin and Aspirin
A team of researchers has proposed a potential alternative therapy regarding the anti-inflammatory activity of proteolytic (protein digesting) enzymes. Researchers looked at the viability of three reputable proteolytic enzymes and aspirin, as well as their possible interactions in reducing various states of inflammation.
Their study provides strong evidence that various proteolytic enzymes - specifically trypsin, chymotrypsin and serratiopeptidase (serrapeptase) - can significantly reduce inflammation when taken alone and provide a synergistic affect when taken in low doses with aspirin without an increased risk of ulceration; a concept that can be a breakthrough for those who take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to treat chronic inflammation.
