WOMEN'S HEALTH Magazine - February 2015
In this issue. . . "As women, we do a lot to keep our nether regions in shape: monthly waxes, birth control, and yearly checkups—and that's just for starters. Recently, Gwyneth Paltrow recommended another to-do for your hoo-ha maintenance checklist: the V-Steam. On her lifestyle site, GOOP, Gwyneth writes that "steaming your V is when you "sit on what is essentially a mini-throne, and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release—not just a steam douche—that balances female hormone levels."
What's that you say?  Well, according to what I read. . .Vaginal or yoni steam baths are an old, respected treatment for women used by Maya midwives and traditional healers in Central and South America.  Bajos (ba-hoes) as they are called in Spanish, are a common and effective treatment for many female complaints, especially those of a serious or chronic nature.  Midwives give them within 1-9 days after childbirth depending on the personal preference and the woman’s condition. They are excellent for dysmennorhea, amenorrhea, ovarian cysts, cervical fibroids and as a general health aid to prevent any of those ailments.  Practitioners of Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy recommend vaginal steams be done regularly. How often depends on the severity of a woman’s condition.

I also found out that you can do this at home in your very own boudoir. Vaginal steaming at home is a very simple process that involves water, vaginal steam herbs, a blanket, a chair and about an hour of time.  If you have oregano, basil, marigold and rosemary in your garden, pick a double handful of fresh leaves and stems – about a quart jar loosely filled. Other herbs useful for vaginal steam baths include burdock leaves, motherwort, chamomile, yarrow, plantain, squaw vine, lavender and thyme. . (Please do your research or Consult your MD First!).

If you’re in LA, you have to do it."  -  Well, I am in South Florida and I do not have to do it. Have you heard about this before, and if so what are your thoughts?
