Yoni health is important for countless reasons. First of all, when you don’t feel right down there, doesn’t it seem to throw everything off? That’s in large part because it (yoni) is physically our essence as women. From a Chinese Medicine approach, our yonis and our whole reproductive system are linked with the energy of the kidneys, which are the root of life and central to how our entire body functions.
Secondly, the health of our yonis can be an indicator of what is going on for our health generally. For instance, for a woman who has leukorrhea, or vaginal discharge at times other than ovulation or arousal, may indicate other issues. Or for a woman who experiences vaginal dryness, it could be that she is lacking certain other body fluids, not just that which pertains to her yoni. Color, consistency, scent of discharge and other changes are ways that our yogis communicate to us about our health.
Our yonis are also the gateway for all of the amazing biological stages and processes we have the opportunity to go through as women: menarche, child birth, and menopause. Having our yonis in optimal health can only help these transitions go more smoothly.
Last, but definitely not least, our yonis are our sexual organs. Through this gateway, we can experience lots of bliss and tons of health benefits. Also based on what you ascribe to, our sexual expression (whether we have a partner or not) can further align us spiritually. Also, because our yonis open in the direction of the earth, we have the opportunity to have an exchange between our yonis and the earth, which is considered to be the most powerful antioxidant there is.
Now that we know some of the reasons why yoni health is important, stay tuned for the series… “What we can do for a healthy yoni?”
