Douches

By Dr. Thomas Stearns Lee

Douching is an ancient hydrotherapy technique designed to flood an orifice of the body with a quantity of water or medicated fluid;  an internal shower, or rinse, in a way.

Common sense would dictate that these be avoided in some situations, such as pregnancy or acute infection, when you would want to work with a qualified natural health professional.

These recipes have been used widely and safely for gentle cleansing of the vagina or rectum.  Unless otherwise directed, these should be used with room-temperature fluids.

Vinegar Douche

In the morning use:

2 tsp. cider vinegar mixed in 1 cup warm water

In the evening use:

1 tbsp. plain, live yogurt mixed in 1 cup warm water

Baking Soda Douche

In the morning use:

1 tbsp. baking soda mixed in 1 qt. water

In the evening use:

1 tbsp. plain yogurt mixed in 1 cup warm water

Use one or two times a day for two days.  If symptoms persist, call a clinic for evaluation.

Boric Acid Douche

1 tbsp. Boric acid powder mixed in 1 qt. warm water.

Use 1-2 times per day for seven days.  If symptoms persist, call a clinic to set up an appointment for lab work.
