Through my Peri-Menopause Journey, I've dove head first into the world of herbs. Herbs are an amazing natural remedy to much of what ails us, unfortunately I believe they are often tossed aside as "voo-doo" due to modern medicine.
This past year, as I was researching natural ways to manage my peri-menopause symptoms, I came across information about Vaginal Steaming. I promise to do a post on this later this week, but if you just can't wait, you can find out more at Steamy Diva.
The powerful health benefits of herbs are too numerous to count. From anti-inflammatory reduction, mood stabilization, heart health, etc., herbs can dramatically improve your overall health, if you utilize them.
The herb I want to talk to you about today is Nettle. Nettle is actually used in my signature Steamy Diva formulas, for vaginal steaming.
Did you know nettle can help heal UTI's, bladder infections, HPV, as well as clear up vaginal discharge, vaginal burning or itching?
Nettle can also reduce menstrual pain, PMS symptoms, cramping, menopause symptoms, it can heal scar tissue, help with bloating, and moodiness as well.
Nettle packs a real punch and I encourage you to add it to your wellness routine. You can do so easily by V-steaming (check out Steamy Diva) or by drinking nettle tea, you can find a few of my fave's here and here.
As I embark on my late forties, and get closer and closer to menopause, I am determined to get through my peri-menopausal years in tact, meaning, in good health, thriving and loving this time.
So often, I hear of women who are really experiencing difficulties during this time, so much so that they are suffering greatly, physically, mentally and emotionally.
I want to do everything possible to thrive during peri-menopause, and while I'm at it, help as many women as possible do the same.
There's no reason we have to suffer through peri-menopause, with all the amazing natural remedies we have available to us.
We're in this together: The good, the bad, and the ugly. Because, hey, we're never going to have it all together, we're human after all, but we can do our part to manage it to the best our abilities.
Be well, live well.
