Pampering4life Health Tip: Regular or Natural Feminine Products

Often times in my practice I have many women who come to me that experience the discomfort of wearing pads and tampons and many times they are searching for the best one that makes sense to them. I’m usually the one who will lead my patients to going natural to avoid concerns like toxic shock syndrome or allergic reactions with regular tampons or pads.

In my experience the more natural the product is the better the products work with your chemistry. The body always knows!  

Does that mean you can relax and use these products without a care as long as you change tampons and pads frequently? Not necessarily.

Commercial one-time-use products contribute to environmental pollution. The process of growing cotton is pesticide intensive and used feminine hygiene products produce a lot of garbage in the course of a woman’s menstrual lifecycle.

If you still prefer disposable tampons, you can change to tampons made from organically grown cotton, or switch to washable menstrual pads, cups, or sponges, all often available at health stores or online. Reusable products save you money as they last for years and they also decrease the amount of garbage going to the landfill. Because alternative products don’t contain synthetic fragrances, they’re less likely to cause allergic reactions. However, menstrual cups and sponges, like all forms of internal protection, should not be left in the vagina too long.

The average American woman uses up to 16,800 tampons in her lifetime according to Dr. Mercola. He also states that most of the feminine hygiene products are made mostly from rayon, vicose, and cellulose wood fluff pulp and not from cotton. In 1999 the Tampon Safety and Research Act called upon the U.S. Congress to require independent testing of feminine hygiene products and to disclose a list of ingredients used in the manufacturing process. Unfortunately, to date, no tests have been conducted and there’s still no public disclosure of all the ingredients used.

You can always leave your health in somebody else hands but I know you are smarter than that~ Know you options and always remember the body always knows. If you are truly serious about going all natural and organic when it comes to your feminine health I would suggest for you to take a look at a great company that is truly making a difference by providing alternatives for women. This is the same company I recommend to my patients and so far many are enjoying the options and freedom of living without toxicity. Be sure to take a look at GladRags and you decide for yourself.

Today women have a greater choice in feminine hygiene products. But no matter what product you choose, practice good hygiene habits to stay healthy.
