An important supporting modality in Arvigo® Therapy is the vaginal steam. At an Arvigo therapy you will be given full instructions how to perform one in the comfort off your own home, which is a healing tool you have for life. But why? Why Steam Your Vagina??
Vaginal steaming is as very popular in Mayan culture In Central America, the remedy is called a bajo, and it is very common among women .. because it works. The warmth of the steam works to soften and open tissues of the vagina which are exceptionally porous and absorbent The medicinal properties of the herbs, including volatile oils, are released and carried to the surface of the skin and to the inside of the vagina, where they are absorbed into the bloodstream and ultimately, into to the uterus. The medicinal herbal steam increases circulation, thins mucus, and cleanses the entire reproductive system, allowing it to shed unnecessary membranes and build up. In doing so, the uterus is supported to function at its best, thus reducing the amount of work it has to do, and therefore your discomfort.
The effectiveness of vaginal steams isn't limited to just eliminating cramps and cleansing the uterus. Combined with Arvigo® therapy they support the therapy to allow your body to:

Here are some suggestions of herbs and plants to use Oregano: Used to bring on menses. Increases scanty flow. This herb is used for its antiseptic, stimulating and strengthening qualities. Oregano is a wonderful herb for aiding in prevention of infection. Marigold: Used to induce perspiration, cleansing of the vaginal tissues. It is also used in healing wounds.

Basil: May reduce painful menstruation. Helps to bring on menstruation. Mugwort: In addition to fighting infection through its antibiotic and anti-fungal properties, mugwort balances female hormones and stimulates the production of hormones that help to maintain uterine health as well as protect the uterus from things such as ulcers and tumours.
