Vaginal Dryness

Vaginal dryness tends to occur in older and middle-aged women in their 40s and 50s. It’s not uncommon to have cases of women in their 20s and 30s who suffer from vaginal dryness.

The vagina is naturally self-lubricating. It lubricates during sexual arousal or stimulation that is usually brought on by either thought or foreplay. Lubrication is the female body’s way of making the statement that it is ready for penetration. Lubrication helps the penis insert into the vagina and also helps to protect the vaginal tissues from the effect of stroking.

Causes of Vaginal Dryness

Physically speaking, vaginal dryness results from a hormonal imbalance and issues with the endocrine and reproductive systems. Vaginal dryness usually indicates a lack of the female hormone progesterone, but also a lack of the female hormone estrogen or perhaps a lack of both hormones in some cases.

On a deep level of understanding, when the vagina fails to naturally lubricate, it’s a sign that the woman does not want to have sex or that the woman should not be engaging in sex.

Natural vaginal lubrication is necessary for penile penetration and if there’s a problem with the vagina becoming lubricated (which it naturally does when a woman is sexually stimulated), then it’s a sign that sex should not be taking place until a problem is first addressed. The problem could be physical, mental, emotional, psychological, or even etheric.

The majority of females do not enjoy painful, burning penile penetration (which can rupture the delicate and soft vaginal tissue and lead to bleeding). Painful, burning penetration results from sex while the vagina is not lubricated.

What You Should Know About Commercial Lubricants

DHerbs does not advocate commercial brand lubricants for any purpose or reason, regardless of the sexual act or activity.

Many synthetic-based lubricants can cause further vaginal dryness. Synthetic man-made lubricant is not the solution for a dry vagina. A dry vagina means something is out of balance with the female endocrine and sexual reproductive system.

There are plenty of natural alternatives such as botanical oils such as olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, coconut oil, and grape seed oil to name a few. Remember, ideally you should be able to eat anything you put on your body and if you can’t, it doesn’t belong on your body.

Many commercial brand lubricants contain petroleum that is derived from rocks and has no business on or in your body. Never use Vaseline either. Vaseline is 100% petroleum, hence its name, Petroleum Jelly.

There is a good alternative to petroleum jelly today that is sold in health food stores. It’s called ‘Un-Petroleum Jelly.’ It feels and looks just like petroleum jelly. It can be used for everything petroleum is used for.

Reversing Vaginal Dryness Naturally

No herb helps to reverse vaginal dryness like saw palmetto berry. Saw palmetto helps to stimulate natural lubrication in the vagina. It can be combined with false unicorn root for maximum effect. Six capsules (or 3 cups of tea) of saw palmetto berries daily should suffice (along with change in thought process, diet, lifestyle, and attitude) for purposes of reversing vaginal dryness.

Stimulating Sexual Thoughts

A good method to try involves stimulating sexual thoughts. The sexual excitement is totally mental. It takes the female body much longer than the male body to warm up due their Yin nature. Mental/sexual stimulation is necessary as a precursor to the sex act because it causes vaginal secretions to secrete for purposes of vaginal penetration.

For about 10 minutes daily, visualize erotic thoughts, thoughts of physical sexual foreplay. Don’t feel this is silly or that you’re silly for doing such. Don’t be shy. Use your mind to help yourself reverse vaginal dryness. Use your mind to become sexually aroused.

    Q: I need some advice on whether I am taking the right herbs to balance my hormones. I have a mustache and a lot of hair on my face and acne. So I take saw palmetto for that. Also, I had an ovary removed about 2 years ago. Since then I have a problem with vaginal dryness and very low sex drive. I am always moody and irritated by everything. I am currently taking saw palmetto, vitex chaste berry, dong quai, and wild yam root, all in the form of a capsule. Please tell me if this combination is good for me.

    Q: I was having issues with puss and blood filled boils on my vaginal walls and I constantly went to doctors who told me that It wasn't an STD but they could never tell me what it was. I finally went to a different office and the results of my culture came back stating that I had MRSA. I was then prescribed Bacterium DS, which is antibiotic containing sulfur. I took this and I didn't seem to have any issues for a while. Now I recently had a boil on my finger and on my back and I have a vaginal discharge, which a different doctor has diagnosed as MRSA (which I thought I was rid of). She also subscribed the Bacterium DS but this time the symptoms did not subside. Please let me know what you suggest for this ailment as the boils are painful and the vaginal discharge is causing much discomfort.

    Q:

    A: We would recommend several products to help address the things you're looking to achieve. We suggest starting off with the Full Body Cleanse. By detoxing all of your major organs and eliminating accumulated waste and toxins; you're giving your body a reset into functioning the way it should. The body is always more receptive to conceiving when your overall health is in a better place. We suggest taking the Breast Formula after cleansing to help enhance the breast tissues. The Bunny Rabbit formula can help improve your sex drive and can assist with vaginal dryness. You can take these two supplements together, just be sure to allow 1-2 hours in between taking each formula. We would recommend using a natural lubricant like coconut oil as a lubrication. You can always move on to the Fertility Cleanse if needed.

Perform the Full Body Detox, Sea salt Soak (visit ARTICLES section on our site and you'll find this article), and rub Healing Skin Oil on the damaged skin area instead of all that pharmaceutical crap. Also, from time to time dab some cold aloe vera gel on your vaginal area to help cool it down. Drink unsweetened cranberry juice diluted with water (half and half). Drink Female Health Tea while detoxing. Drink vegetable juice daily. This is how you heal from your condition, Beloved.

    Q: I've had Crohn's since 1989. Months later, I developed a vaginal fistula. Since then, I've had a partial colectomy of the left colon, hemicolectomy of the right colon, and I had a partial hysterectomy. During the same time they did an ileostomy. I wore it for 3 months. When they took it down, it did not repair the fistula. Some months later, I developed a vaginal cyst, and I began taking Lupron injections to reduce it. It reduced the cyst, but threw my body into menopause. Now I'm having problems with my sight, memory, and other menopausal symptons. Also since 1992, my breath began to smell, and when I use the bathroom, it smells awful. I want to be healed from Crohn's, but my main problem right now is, how I smell. I can't keep existing like this. I'm battling diarrhea, pain, anemia, fatigue, depression, gas, and bloating. I've asked my GI about detoxing, because I believe that's one thing that would make me feel better, but he says no. He doesn't know what to do about my breath, and neither do I anymore. What do you suggest?

    A:

    You should listen to how you feel and DETOX! Detoxing will help you, and your situation. The drugs have made you toxic! Here's what you need to do first and foremost, perform the Full Body Detox, followed by the 10-Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse, followed by the 10-Day Supreme Colon Cleanse. While performing these cleanses, drink 1 cup of Female Health Tea daily, and read the "Mental Science Manual" and apply the principles.
