The Midlife Vajayjay with Dr. Anna Cabeca and Natalie Jill Pin

What Can Be Done to Prevent Changes in Our Vajayjays in Midlife?

As our hormones start changing (in our 30s) we experience a lot of changes — from smile lines, to wrinkles, to discomfort, and incontinence. To prevent all of this from happening, you can eat healthy, optimizing your insulin, and optimizing your oxytocin and cortisol. Eating is important for our vaginal health is because our vagina is an extension of our gut. Optimizing your insulin is also really important because if you don’t, you’re at risk for diabetes. When your insulin is off, so many other things are too. You should also be doing pelvic floor exercises! Topical anti-aging creams, like Julva, are really important for vaginal health as well. At the cellular level, Julva helps your body build back its own healthy tissues. Topically applying DHEA with rose stem cells really helps to rejuvenate your tissue.

It’s All About “Hormone Replenishment”, not Replacement

With birth control, for example, we are replacing your natural hormones and suppress your own ovarian production. This is a no-no in terms of controlling symptoms of changing hormones. For this, you want to use bio-identical hormones in healthy levels, NOT suppressive levels. Did you know that if guys are on testosterone for an extended period of time, their testicles will shrink?! 😱 Once they stop, they can experience depression, crushing fatigue, and suicidal ideation! For women, post-birth control syndrome can cause their own set of issues with long term complications.

How Do You Support Your Body As a Woman With Imbalanced Hormones?

Start with detoxification and supporting your adrenals glands and getting your body to produce more of its own natural DHEA. Then add in adaptogens like Mighty Maca to support the adrenals in making more of its own DHEA so your liver can help metabolize your own hormones. Then you can add in progesterone and/or some DHEA supplement and estrogen or testosterone.

What Happens If It’s Too Late For Prevention? How Do We Fix and Reverse?

When it comes to vaginal and vulva health, it’s all about pelvic floor exercises, getting plenty of essential fatty acids (the good fats), eating low carbs and high protein, adding probiotics, using Julva, and self pleasure and/or good sex.

Why Is Julva So Beneficial for Vulvar Health?

In creating Julva, the mission was to create something topical that would outperform anything Dr. Cabecca could ever write on a prescription pad — and that’s what she did. Plant stem cells from the Alpine Rose are super beneficial and are used in SUPER expensive cosmetics and creams. They restore collagen, decrease fine lines and wrinkles, anti-viral, and so many more benefits. They help support your vaginal health (muscle, mucus membrane, etc.) so much so that 65+ year old women using it are being told they have a vagina equal to someone 20+ years younger than them!

How To Use Julva?

To start, use Julva every other day (especially if you have vulvar issues) for the first 1-2 weeks. Then transition to daily. Some people see results in the first use — others use it for about 2 weeks before their symptoms are relieved (if you are someone who experiences pain during sex, use it for 2 weeks before you try sex again). Apply it on the outside from clitoris to anus (but it’s fine if it gets inside the vagina). The ingredients are so clean and it has zero hormone disruptors.
