Have you ever been too embarrassed to ask your girlfriends or GYN intimate questions about your female issues?

Do you find when you do want to talk about them you are lost for words on what to call your lady anatomy?

Here are my thoughts on “Her”


By its dictionary and anatomical definitions, however, vagina refers exclusively to the specific internal structure, and understanding the distinction can improve knowledge of the female genitalia and aid in health care communication.

This is how I feel. It evokes negativity in our culture. it sounds strong, masculine and medical… I use the word “vagina” when I am teaching the anatomy of it.


In Sanskrit means, womb, uterus, vagina, vulva, place of birth, source, origin

To me “Yoni” sounds soft & feminine. Yoni is your sacred portal, your source. It evokes divine femininity, sacredness and power.

Sometimes I will interchange with these words. I feel “Yoni” is intimately sacred. Your yoni is unique and beautiful.

I’m sharing my sights and questions that I am often asked:

1. What does my Yoni look like?

Such a great QUESTION! Do you know that most woman won’t look at “Her”?

Your “Yoni” is your unique flower. It looks like a flower unfolding… it’s color and folds or petals varies. It’s beautiful and magical.

I believe it is time to be her be-friend.

Find a quiet place in your home to create a ritual. Undress, light a candle, play soft music and take out a mirror look at her and honor her.

Perhaps ask your lover to do the same. And you will feel so much more connected to your female body.

2. Why Do I have pain in my Yoni?

Many women suffer from pelvic pain or dysfunction. There may be various causes such as:

Sexual or Pelvic Pain, Pelvic Floor Tension, Vulvodynia, Interstitial Cystitis, Prudential Neuralgia

I know from experience there is nothing worse than keeping this secret. Some Doctors tell you the pain is all in your head. Or perhaps you have spent years researching or visiting other medical professionals and have been prescribed meds… and unnecessary surgery.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE! 30 Million of Women suffer in silence.

It shouldn’t have to be this way. I believe in healing the WHOLE BODY. That is the conscious connection of your physical, emotional and spiritual body. Unfortunately, the missing link is asking this critical questions:

This is where Western medicine meets Eastern medicine.

A few things to think about!

Western medicine is the “New” medicine
Eastern Medicine has been around for thousands of years and practiced in many cultures.

Gently ponder on these questions…

 Has there been an emotional, sexual or environmental trauma in your life?
 Have you suffered from the lingering effects of a female cancer?
 Is there a history of fibroids, endometriosis?
 Did you experience a traumatic childbirth?
 Do you sit all day? Do you exercise?
 Are you listening to your pain signals?
 Do you want to heal the root cause?

There is always help. Sometimes it takes a little digging. You can relieve your female pain by nourishing your mind, body and spirit. It takes time to heal, most importantly patience and commitment.

Here are your options:
You can visit a Pelvic Floor Physical Therapist, Acupuncture, Meditation, Gentle exercises to release your pelvic floor, Energy Healer, Network Spinal Chiropractor (NSA), EMDR Therapy or Womb Healing.

Healing female pain takes time to nourish your mind, body and spirit and it all begins in your root.

3. Do I recommend these procedures?

Now here is a sensitive but TRUE story…

I lived in NYC for many years and living there sometimes you think we see and hear everything. Last year I received a phone call from a prominent Doctor who is in the business of injecting Botox in the Vagina for “better/stronger sex?”

Why did he call? For me to send my clients to him! Yikes, I know that is a very lucrative business, but he doesn’t know me. He even offered me a “Botox” injection, yes in my “YONI” OMG, without asking me any questions or assessment.

You know I’m Holistic & Mystic. I believe in the Integration of Eastern & Western medicine…I certainly do not believe in mutilating anyone’s body or injecting poison in it… No, I didn’t recommend anyone to him.

He’s in the business of making over vagina’s YES genital plastic surgery. Doesn’t this sound like female genital mutilation?

There is nothing wrong with the color or shape of your “Yoni”. And if you want more pleasure and joy there are gentle exercises that you can practice.

4. Are there natural remedies for my pain?

YES! There are foods and drinks you should avoid.

However, you should seek someone who specializes in lifestyle dietary concerns for pelvic pain. This is not my specialty, I can refer a Pelvic Floor PT, who is also a functional nutritionist. She helps women who struggle with female pain, sexual dysfunction, hormonal imbalance, fertility and fatigue.

When is doubt… avoid coffee, alcohol, soda, sugar, soy, white foods, dairy and gluten.

Eat local and in season. Keep notes on foods that make you feel pain, gas, bloating.

5. What is a “Yoni Steam?”

Are you familiar with this feminine self-care ritual?

The practice of womb steams have been around for centuries. This ancient ritual is also known as Bajos, Yoni Steams and V-steams. It’s practiced in Africa, Korea, Latin America, Indonesia, and now the US!

This gentle and effective practice helps revitalize womb wellness. Below are the benefits for your vitality.
