About the Pelvic Steam bath Treatment
As it happens, I use different herbs according to what ailments to treat. To make the steam, you can use the herbs either dry or fresh. You will need more fresh than dry. The treatment’s simple to set up and certainly an enjoyable experience. Used regularly at least once a month you will get amazing results.
The Steams Uses
Used for a variety of conditions, especially where it requires a gentle increase in temperature. Parts of the perineum consists of mucous membranes. When the blood flow increases in this area, the absorption of healing properties from the plants occurs. For example, some natural properties carried upon the steam include antibiotics, analgesics, antifungal, antispasmodics, and anti-inflammatories. The steam generally increases the warmth in the whole body, increasing blood flow, lymphatic drainage and the flow of energy. Therefore, bringing fresh nutrients, oxygen and minerals to the organs. At the same time removing excess waste, carbon dioxide and toxins. Consequently, this improves the health and function of the organs.
When to use the Pelvic Steam treatment?
Two examples of why you would use a Pelvic steam
Some of us suffer from Chronic urine infections.
This treatment used over a period of time can help with this condition. For example, choose to use a mixture of soothing anti-inflammatory, viral and bacterial herbs to make your steam with. This will help to strengthen your immune system, reduce inflammation in the bladder and help to relax the smooth muscle.
Heavy bleeding during menses.
At different times in our lives, for various reasons, anyone with a uterus can suffer from this. To have steam before and after menses, every month, helps greatly. Because of the increase in blood flow to the uterus, it aids the uterus to function optimally. To conceive the endometrium needs to be thick and fluffy full of fresh blood. Any old endometrium not shed fully can prevent a fertilised egg from implanting.
In this case, if the endometrium has not shed fully it leads to heavier and more painful periods. This is because the Uterus is trying to clear out the old unwanted endometrium. Therefore, the herbs we choose in this instance would be antispasmodic, in some cases haemostatic and clearing properties.
NB do not use actually during menses, you do not want to haemorrhage.
