A hundred dollars for a sitz bath? Yes soaking in warm water is soothing and helps increase circulation to the perineum, but you can do that at home for free. Personally I think soaking in a nice warm tub would be more relaxing than sitting on a " throne. " On another note my husband's response when I read this to him was how filthy is that beaver that you have to steam clean it?

Gwyneth Paltrow ain't done with her bullshit.

The Oscar winner and lifestyle maven has been touting the benefits of vaginal steam treatments on her GOOP website. In singing the praises of holistic spa Tikkun, Paltrow enjoins her readers to get the Mugwort V-Steam.

“You sit on what is essentially a mini-throne,” she writes, “and a combination of infrared and mugwort steam cleanses your uterus, et al. It is an energetic release—not just a steam douche—that balances female hormone levels. If you’re in LA, you have to do it.”

Tikkun's website claims: Medicinal Properties of the V Steam:

- Stimulates the production of hormones to maintain uterine health

- Protects the uterus from ulcers and tumors

- Soothes while strengthening the nervous system

- Stimulates menstrual discharges and the production of milk

- Aids in restarting regular menstrual cycles

- Eases fatigue, headaches, abdominal discomfort and nausea

- Lessens the effects of renal calculi, rheumatism, arthritis and gout

- Helps fight infections

- Kills intestinal worms

- Helps correct digestive disorders

- Warms the body

I'll go for "warms the body", you know - steam and all.

You can guess as to what the "V" in V-steam stands for. They also offer "A-Steam" (take a wild guess as to what "A" stands for) for men wanting to.. I don't fucking know.

But wait! Those are just the benefits of the "basic" V-steam! There are also specialized V-steams loaded with God-knows-what that do equally nothing of any use to you.

SLIMMING V STEAM

Tikkun’s Slimming blend uses combination of Chinese herbs to enhance the body to promote cleansing, detoxification and burn body fat.

TIKKUN INFERTILTY V STEAM

Tikkun’s Fertility blend uses combination of Chinese herbs to enhance the health of the reproductive system, warms the womb and invigorates the circulation of the chi and stimulates blood flow to the uterus and clears dampness.

TIKKUN POST PARTUM V STEAM

Tikkun’s Postpartum blend helps reduce postpartum depression, promotes the production of mother’s milk for the infant’s benefit, increases circulation, eases the afterpains of childbirth and can assist in healing vaginal atrophy and infections.

TIKKUN SIGNATURE A-STEAM FOR MEN

Originally a treatment for the Emperor of China, the A Steam for men is invigorating and detoxifying. Aids in reducing muscle tension, inflammation and lactic acid for athletes. Improves cardiovascular performance and induces deeper sleep. Soothes hemorrhoids and assists in anal cleansing. Increasing energy and enhancing general health.

Oh BOY! Now couples can get their nether regions and wallets steamed for the low low price of $100!

Fact. Hormones are chemicals that your body produces that do not happen with Jade Eggs. Sexual energy comes with a woman's fitness and love of sex. After menopause a woman needs too replace some of the hormones that her body stops producing. These chemicals can be replaced by artificially produced hormones in a pill or shot or a patch or cream that is absorbed though the skin. Men as they age need to replace some of the human growth hormones that their body stops producing.

I'm posting this as-written - mostly. Edited for length, but I'm not the one adding the dramatic language.

A diet of corn is turning wild hamsters in northeastern France into deranged cannibals that devour their offspring, alarmed researchers have reported.

"There's clearly an imbalance," Gerard Baumgart, President of the Research Centre for Environmental Protection in Alsace, and an expert on the European hamster, told AFP on Friday. "Our hamster habitat is collapsing."

More common farther to the east, Cricetus cricetus in critically endangered in western Europe. The findings, reported last week in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society of London B, finger industrial-scale monoculture as the culprit.

Once nourished by a variety of grains, roots and insects, the burrowing rodents live today in a semi-sterile and unbroken ocean of industrially grown maize, or corn. The monotonous diet is leaving the animals starving, scientists discovered almost by accident. The problem is a lack of vitamins. In fact, one in particular: B3, or niacin.

Remember the Gwyneth Paltrow jade eggs in the vaginas story?

Here’s what Dr. Jen Gunter, a San Francisco-based physician with Kaiser wrote about the practice, starting with the fact that it’s not only useless but actually sexist:

My issue begins with the very start of your post on jade eggs specifically that “queens and concubines used them to stay in shape for emperors.” Nothing says female empowerment more than the only reason to do this is for your man! And then the claim that they can balance hormones is, quite simply, biologically impossible. Pelvic floor exercises can help with incontinence and even give stronger orgasms for some women, but they cannot change hormones. As for female energy? I’m a gynecologist and I don’t know what that is!? How does one test for it? Organically sourced, fair trade urine pH sticks coming soon to GOOP for $77 I presume?
