Most strains are harmless such as warts, but researchers have discovered a link between certain strands of HPV and cervical cancer.

  • Progesterone: Are you getting yours?

    It is often said that women are not logical.  Well thank goodness for that! If we calculated everything in life, we would be completely unprepared for the unexpected, and life is one constant flow of unexpected.  Women’s wisdom comes from the knowingness deep down in the core of her being.  Without intuition, we are without our true strength, something that goes beyond analytical intellect and the measures of science, it is the wisdom of the world speaking through our bodies, it is a strength beyond anything that can be controlled. When we allow this intrinsic force to flow through us we no longer feel something is missing. When our intuition…

  • A Little Postpartum Nourishment Goes a Long Way

    Postpartum is the most intense journey any woman could possibly go through. Unfortunately this is not often acknowledged in the western world.

Nobody bothers to mention the outrageous hormonal cascade, the ridiculous dynamics of breastfeeding, how to actually look after a newborn, or your very sensitive pretty shattered body that needs to heal!

  • Could CBD Oil Help Fertility?

    Every month we see a new natural health product hitting the market at full speed. Some of them last, some fade away. I learnt a long time ago not to trust something just because it’s popular. In fact I am a natural born skeptic. I like to do vigilant research before I even vaguely trust any product. CBD oil (cannabinoidal) fascinates me. Especially the kind derived from hemp rather than marijuana, since hemp doesn’t contain THC. My big question with most CBD oils is, “What process does the oil go through to get the final product? And were there synthetic chemicals involved (such as butane)?” During my research on this interesting substance and the…

  • Can I Trust in Mothers Instinct?

    Is Mothers Instinct a real thing? Those of us who have experienced it will say “Yes, without a doubt”. It’s born at birth and is cultivated through intimate mother-baby time. It’s every woman’s birthrite, but it can be derailed if the right support isn’t in place. Is Mothers Instinct biological or intuitive?  I would say both. We spend nine to ten months growing an entire human being within our body, and from our body (bar a small essential amount of donor DNA). The physicality of this being is part of us, plus for nine months the personality forms within us as the soul embodies. So why on earth wouldn’t we have a strong sense…

  • Is Soya a Miracle Food?

    The Flower Power revolution of the sixties gave birth to a wave of free love, radical music and vegetarianism. Yet we soon realized lentils and rice didn’t quite make the cut for a balanced diet.

  • Do We Need to Fight to be Healthy?

  • The Delicious Dyanamics of the Jade Egg Practice

    The Taoist story of the jade egg practice came my way many years ago, but nothing about it called me. It https://buycbdproducts.com complicated and heady. I just didn’t have a sense that this practice was really for me. That was until I had a very interesting conversation with Juliet Terblanche of Yoni Eggs South Africa. Jade eggs were first used by the women of the royal courts in China 5,000 years ago. Even by the Empress herself. In those days women didn’t pass their knowledge on through the written word, they passed it on verbally, which means we don’t really know what techniques these ladies were using. I decided to dive into my own jade egg practice…

  • Does She Crave Sensuality?

    Women are deeply complex creatures to say the least. They can straddle and travel a multiplicity of streams, sometimes too many. Today, either by choice or by necessity, women are easily losing themselves in the multitiered vigilance of life.

  • The Body Doesn’t like Measured Food!

    Calories, Carbs, Kilojoules? Why do we count them? Are these labels a marker for healthy nutrition?

  • Self-Obsession & Self-Nurturing: A Fine Line

    For many generations western principles have encouraged us to either strive for power and recognition, or to give of ourselves until we are depleted.
