12 Days of Pelvic Health



12 Days of Pelvic Health is a curated collection of simple, holistic practices designed to enhance your pelvic wellbeing, one day at a time. See the full list on my Instagram or Facebook.


  1. Bromelain: Found in pineapples, this enzyme can reduce inflammation and pain, particularly for women with endometriosis.

  2. Peppermint Tea: Aids in soothing digestive discomfort often associated with pelvic issues.

  3. Cobbler's Pose (Supta Baddha Konasana): This pose is excellent for releasing tension in the pelvic area. Lie on your back, bend your knees, and bring the soles of your feet together. Let your knees drop open to the sides.

  4. Leafy Greens: Leafy greens like spinach, kale, and Swiss chard are rich in nutrients, including magnesium. Magnesium is essential for muscle function and can help relax the pelvic floor muscles. It also supports bone health and can reduce the risk of osteoporosis, which is crucial for maintaining pelvic organ support.

  5. Clary Sage Oil: Known for its muscle relaxant properties, which can be beneficial for tight pelvic and abdominal muscles.

  6. Star Breathing: imagine your body as the outline of a star and start at the very top of the star. As you flow down the right angle of the star, breathe out. When you reach the next arm of the star, breathe in. Pause at the right tip of the star. Move down the arm breathing out, then breathing in until you reach the bottom right tip and pause. Continue until you've finished the star.

  7. Flaxseeds: Rich in fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, flaxseeds can promote digestive health, which indirectly supports the pelvic floor.

  8. Berries: Berries, such as blueberries, strawberries, and raspberries, are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C. These nutrients can help support healthy connective tissues, including those in the pelvic area. They also promote collagen production, which is essential for maintaining the integrity of pelvic floor muscles and tissues.Vitamin C: Supports collagen production, which is essential for the strength of pelvic tissues.

  9. Cat-Cow Pose (Marjaryasana-Bitilasana): This dynamic sequence helps with pelvic flexibility and coordination. Start on your hands and knees. Inhale as you arch your back (Cow Pose), and exhale as you round your spine (Cat Pose).

  10. Cranberry Juice: (real, all natural, no added sugar) May help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs) and promote urinary health.

  11. Child's Pose (Balasana): This gentle stretch helps relax the pelvic muscles and relieve tension. Kneel on the floor with your big toes touching and knees apart. Sit back on your heels and stretch your arms forward on the mat while lowering your chest to the ground.

  12. Salmon: Fatty fish like salmon are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s have anti-inflammatory properties, which can help reduce inflammation in the pelvic area. They also support overall cardiovascular health, which is crucial for maintaining proper blood flow to the pelvic organs.
