Improve Your Well-Being
The first step to treating vaginal dryness is to deal with your well-being. Whether you use conventional or natural remedies or not, if the possible foundational causes of a lack of natural lubrication are not addressed, the problem may still exist. While for many women hormone changes are going to inevitably cause side effects, taking care of your well-being will help to minimize the severity of side effects such as vaginal dryness.
Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. Hydration is important for the body to be able to produce necessary fluids. Drink eight glasses of water a day. Also, take a look at your diet. Make sure you are consuming plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables for vitamins and minerals, nuts and seeds for essential fatty acids and nutrients, and sources of phytoestrogens, such as soy, whole grains, celery, fennel, apples and flax seed.
As stress and emotional imbalances may contribute to vaginal dryness, it is important to address these problems. Consider adding some form of relaxation into your daily lifestyle, such as meditation, deep breathing exercises, or simply a walk outdoors.
