"Many women attribute vaginal itching, odor and irritation to poor hygiene when in fact there are so many other contributing factors. The imbalances that we are experiencing are actually often caused by daily life events such as our period, sex, poor diet, lack of exercise and stress. These 5 things significantly impact our vaginal health and I think more women need education surrounding these. The ill effects of pH imbalance are not things that women should be ashamed of but we should support each other to reach optimal pH balance. We also need the support of our partners and need to feel comfortable expressing that there is an issue that needs to be addressed. Our partners also need to acknowledge that they are contributing to the problem with poor lifestyle habits as well. We all need a change and I think it’s the perfect time of year to do that! Our company focuses on empowering women with the knowledge and tools to heal their gut (the root cause of pH imbalances) while also seeking to break the stigma surrounding vaginal health. - Nia Spicer, RN"
