How does a yoni steam work?
Many reproductive challenges such as menstrual cramps and infertility are caused when there is excess build up of uterine lining that was not shed in previous cycles “encrusted” to the inside of the uterus. Because this material is built up over time, the uterus and the muscles around it work excessively hard to shed it, often causing pain and fatigue.
A yoni steam works by infusing medicinal herbs into water, causing the molecular compounds of the beneficial plants to bond with the water vapor. During a yoni steam, this warm, herb-infused water vapor gently permeates the pores of the exterior of the vagina (the tissue referred to as the vulva) as you sit over your steaming pot. The molecular compounds are carried through subtle channels of the vagina and the uterus where they work to held cleanse and shed any excess build up of lining, breakdown abnormalities, and tighten the vagina. In addition, the warmth increases circulation to the vulva, causing it to swell and expose the inner labial mucus membranes — enhancing libido and lubrication. This process supports our body to do its best work in the same way that drinking ginger tea might support more comfortable digestion. The result is a healthier, more pleasant cycle and a more connected woman.
Yoni steaming is safe and effective
You may have read that some Western doctors are opposed to yoni steaming, disregarding it as unsafe or ineffective. This is in part due to a fundamental misunderstanding about how it works, so let’s clear that up first. Yoni steaming is does not blow steam into the uterus, nor is the intention to get plant material into the vagina, as indeed those actions would be very invasive. A yoni steam works in the subtle channels, and as long as the steam is not too hot, this gentle process is safe and non-invasive.
Secondly, most Western doctors do not have any experience with this ancient women’s practice, as it is not something they learned in medical school. Perhaps this is due in part to the lack of scientific studies on the topic, as Western medical practice tends to disregard anything for which there is "no evidence" (i.e. no peer reviewed scientific studies). However, there is mounting evidence of the benefits of yoni steaming in the form of women’s lived experience that will soon be difficult to ignore. We take thousands of years of women’s testimonials, including widespread success stories today, as valuable evidence while we await scientific studies. It is our great hope that doctors see the safety and effectiveness of this practice soon, so that even more women may benefit. In the mean time, read these testimonials from women who have tried yoni steaming.
