What Is Endometriosis?

by Jodi Shabazz April 29, 2018

What is endometriosis?
Small patches of uterine lining tissue (called endometrium) migrate to and implant themselves in other parts of the pelvic areas such as the ovaries, fallopian tubes, uterine muscles, colon, bladder and sides of the pelvic cavity. These endometrial implants contain brown blood debris and upon rupturing, they spill into the pelvic cavity creating irritation and inflammation. During menstruation, these endometriomas swell with blood and bleed, after which scar tissue forms in the injured location leading to a buildup of dense tissue adhesions. The pain and inflammation can be debilitating.

Causes of endometriosis include:
  • Estogen dominance
  • Early onset of menses and delayed first pregnancy
  • Underactive thyroid gland
  • Exposure to environmental estrogens - chemicals, animal products.
  • Weakened immunity
  • Candidiasis
  • Stressful emotional patterns

Some of these causes are the reasons endometriosis can tend to come back, even after you have removed the adhesions and scar tissue. Or these causes could PREVENT you from healing the adhesions or scar tissue...it's like trying to swin UPSTREAM. Only salmon can do that! You have to address the root cause in order to completely resolve this issue.

I will be discussing each of these root causes in depth, one by one, over the next few days. And how you can start taking the right steps to address each of them.

Homemade Vaginal Steam Seat For Less Than $20

by Jodi Shabazz September 14, 2018

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!!

Vaginal Steam - What Is It & How Do You Do It?

by Jodi Shabazz September 14, 2018

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.

Heal Blocked Fallopian Tubes With Castor Oil Packs! Here's How!

by Jodi Shabazz August 23, 2018

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.
