Before You Use Douche, Read This!

September 26, 2017

Our vagina is naturally self-cleaning so it doesn't need help with cleansing. In fact, you can learn so much about your health and body from the discharge you see.

Do you see a discharge - clear, yellow-ish tint, thick discharge?Is there an odor?

This information can give you insight into:
the health of your diet
the toxicity of the medication you're taking
as well as fear you may be holding onto (yes, fear has an odor!!)

Allow your body to inform and teach you about your health.

So, before you buy and use that store-brand douche - which I do not recommend - consider allowing your body to naturally cleanse, learn from your body, and make the appropriate changes to your health.

Plus, check out the actual ingredients, and, potential toxicity in the douche:

Edetate Disodium - is a chelating agent that removes heavy metals from the body.
Potential adverse effects include:
feeling like you might pass out
severe blistering, peeling, or red skin rash
nausea, vomiting, diarrhea
numbness or tingling
headache
pain, redness, or swelling

Sodium Benzoate - is an antimicrobial preservative and flavoring agent used in the food industry and a tablet and capsule lubricant used in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry.

Potential adverse effects include:
stinging
anxiety
bleeding
blistering
hives
infection/numbness/pain

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) - SLS is a surfactant, detergent, and emulsifier used in thousands of cosmetic products, as well as in industrial cleaners. It is present in nearly all shampoos, scalp treatments, hair color and bleaching agents, toothpastes, body washes and cleansers, make-up foundations, liquid hand soaps, laundry detergents, and bath oils/bath salts.

Although SLS originates from coconuts, the chemical is anything but natural. The real problem with SLES/SLS is that the manufacturing process (ethoxylation) results in SLES/SLS being contaminated with 1,4 dioxane, a carcinogenic by-product.

According to the Environmental Working Group's Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews, research studies on SLS have shown links to:
irritation of the skin and eyes
organ toxicity
developmental/reproductive toxicity
neurotoxicity
endocrine disruption
possible mutations and cancer

Additionally, according to healthline dot com, and vaginal douche company, Summer's Eve:

"An association has been reported between douching and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ectopic pregnancy, and infertility. It is not currently known whether douching is causally related to these conditions, but women should be aware of this association. Douching should not be used for self-treatment if you have symptoms of PID or STD (sexually transmitted diseases)".

You can experience an essential oil douche, which consists of essential oils and pure water. This option allows you to nourish your vagina, and entire reproductive system with the therapeutic qualities - such as anti-inflammatory,anti-spasmodic, detoxifying - of essential oils.

When you get clear on how you want to empower and nurture your reproductive, and overall health, truly research what works well with your body.

Be educated. Choose safety and effectiveness.
