Vaginal Ecology Workshop
Come learn about vaginal health and balance! In optimal health the vagina is a resilient and self-balancing organ, but physical and emotional stresses can lead to occasional or chronic imbalance, infection, and pain. I will talk about the bacterial ecology and pH of the vagina in health and in sickness and will address healing on a physical, emotional and relationship level. I will use real stories to cover multiple remedies for the two most common vaginal imbalances: Yeast and Bacterial Vaginosis. This class will be useful for anyone with a vagina who is interested in self-care and self-knowledge.
