4 Important Tips to Keep You Healthy ‘down there’ #ChurchAndDwight #ad

It’s summer and; therefore, oh so easy to get a yeast infection!  Here’s the good news … you don’t have to suffer!  Try these 4 tips to keep you happy and healthy ‘down there’.

Disclosure: I have been compensated to share this post. The opinions on this blog are my own.

After a long winter, I realize that there’s nothing I’m craving more than the hot sun and patio weather. What I don’t miss are the pesky issues “down there” that also come with soaking up the sun. Yes, you read that right. For many women, the warmer temperature brings an increased risk of an “itch” that nobody likes to talk about – yeast infections.

Surprisingly, yeast infections affect more women than you think! Approximately five per cent of women experience reoccurring yeast infections (3 to 4 infections in the last year)[1] and this has a lot to do with heat. The infection occurs when moisture gets trapped and yeast can overgrow, causing itching, burning and discomfort. If you’ve had one, you know exactly what I’m talking about.IMG_1557The good news is that with a few simple tips, you can avoid that pesky itch.

  1.  Remember to dry off: Relaxing in a hot tub is the perfect way to enjoy a warm, summer evening. However, yeast grows best in a moist environment, making hot tubs a breeding ground for unwanted infections. This means it’s important to dry off well afterwards and change into dry clothes right away. Use this same approach when spending the day at the beach or pool.
  2.   Know your pH: Many vaginal health issues, including odour, itchiness and yeast infections stem from an unbalanced pH. RepHresh™ Gel is a gynecologist recommended product and clinically proven to be pH balanced which can help to eliminate feminine odour and relieve feminine discomfort.
  3.   Wear cotton undies: Unfortunately, your tight skinny jeans may not be the best option this summer. Warm, tight clothing allows for little oxygen movement making the perfect breeding ground for yeast. If you must rock the skinnies, wear cotton underwear.
  4.   Take healthy measures: RepHresh™ Pro-B reduces the number of urogenital pathogenic bacteria and yeast on vaginal surfaces. It’s clinically tested and works by balancing the yeast and bacteria that are naturally present in a woman’s body to help restore and maintain proper vaginal flora. Try adding one capsule to your daily routine to keep your body on track and ensure nothing slows you down this summer!

How are you going to beat the summer heat?  If you’ve tried either of these products, I’d love it if you left me a comment with your thoughts.  Don’t be shy … the more we open up and discuss these “issues” the more we educate ourselves.

MyBitsandBleeps Celebrates #CanadaDay #Canada150

Happy Birthday Canada! 🇨🇦

150 years young, and you’re going strong!  I love being Canadian, and have always been proud to share that fact any time, any where, and to anyone. IMG_1538Originally known as Dominion Day, after the Canada Act in 1982, the celebration was renamed Canada Day.  I remember it well.  I remember all the changes that took place since, and all the debates, like wether or not we should continue pledging allegiance to the Queen.  There were disagreements between friends and many discussions in classes across Canada (I’m sure).   In 1982 I started grade 9; while it’s only been 35 years it feels like much more time has passed.  A lot has changed and yet a lot has stayed the same.  It sounds confusing but that’s not my intention.  Compared to most countries Canada is still very young.  There’s many ways in which Canada can make mistakes while “growing up”; however, Canada Day is a day in which we celebrate all of the good things Canada has done.

This July 1st, we celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.  It’s going to be a BIG celebration, and I’ll be celebrating in the capital.  My family (from BC) will be joining me and my daughter in Ottawa.  What better way to celebrate this milestone?  I can’t foresee the size of the crowds, or how dangerous it may be.  I will be on high alert.

With all that’s happening around the world, I pray that we all remain safe.  Friends, enjoy the festivities, have fun, and wish Canada a fabulous birthday but in large crowds/gatherings please stay vigilant and please report anything you find suspicious.
