( We are a combination of what we think, feel and eat. Food has the ability to be our medicine if we are willing to allow nature to nurture and sustain us. We exercise our bodies for optimal physical health, we read to stimulate our mental health, we pray or meditate for our spiritual health but we rarely speak of our vaginal health until an issue arises. As with every part of our body, our vagina requires nurturance, love, care and maintenance.

In this article we will discuss foods that nurture, cleanse and strengthen our vagina so that we do not need douches, vaginal wipes and harsh fragrances.
