Before eye commence with this post eye’d like to warn you, it’s a personal one. Far more personal than my emotions, it’s regarding my yoni, otherwise known as my vagina. So, if you’re already cringing feel free to veer away and do some self-inquiry on why the organ that made your birth possible disgusts you.
Okay, for those of you whom are still with me. A little background on my yoni health: eye am twenty-five years old and have never had a yeast infection until this last month. Now eye find myself having to treat one that eye previously thought had cleared. Symptoms ceased after getting my period and eye just assumed eye was good to go. Turns out that eye wasn’t because the symptoms returned today. Eye’m due for an Ob/Gyn appointment regardless and you know your girl will be treating this with some all natural tea tree oil suppositories, but eye’d like to delve into what this condition is telling me, after all, every physical ailment comes with a deeper mental and emotional root.
After looking into the causes for yeast infections it became very clear to me that this is correlated with the poor food choices eye’d been making that had been weakening my immune system significantly. It kills me to admit it, because every one eye know seems to think my body is just the most clean machine there is. Truthfully this last month eye’ve been polluting my body with the more than occasional gluten, processed cookies, so much sugar and the worst… eye discovered a fast food place that has vegan options and it tastes far too good which lead me to indulge far too much.
Eye’ve observed myself get perpetually bloated as well as experience the low vibrations and feelings that inevitably come along with treating one’s body like a dumping ground for shit your tongue enjoys that does the rest of your system NO good. Of course, with all of these “attacks” from foods that hurt my good gut bacteria and throwing gluten in the mix here and there my immune system was bound to suffer. Eye believe that’s the message my yoni is sending me. “Take care of yourself or else yeast infections are just the start.” Heard you loud and clear babe.
For those you still reading, thank you for holding space, and in spite of all of the temptations from your tongue, don’t let it make your food choices unless you’re one of those that craves the healthy shit.
