Tampons the toxic brews or Gateway to Freedom ?

Tampons saved me. Saved me from insanity.

How are you supposed to smile and act normal if you are bleeding from down below.

Worse still accumulating all that muck in a pad !

Go through the day as if everything is normal when you are Constantly wet between your legs ? With a thing jutting between them !

Lord ! Anyways I thought I was dying and logically you should no ?

If you are dripping blood on the floor, in the flush and sometimes Lumps ! You Have to be super human to survive that month after month ! Suddenly I feel closer to God ! 😉 Like I am one kinds : ) 😉

Then mum introduced the pads – God if this wasn’t bad enough then the stuff you watched on TV and thought was used for drying the utensils was to be taped onto your underpants and between your legs and that’s how you are supposed to wait till you die?

I know my parents, poor souls they are just being supportive and strong for me and won’t let me feel bad by knowing that

Yes ! It’s time ! You are going to be dead in few days’ time !

I waited for months all together for this ordeal to get over !!!!

Get back to the golden days of non-bleeding but alas it was not meant to be.

College hostel saved the ordeal by introducing Girls best friend- NOOOO not condoms but Tampons !

I never looked back since till I found out the truth about bleached and unbleached tampons.

I took a pause and dug around , found few shiver inducing facts ….

Nothing off the shelf can be trusted. Far from truth, people won’t shy away from harming souls to gain a quick buck ?

Do the karmas come into play here ? Will hiding the truth add to the bad karmas of the person selling it ? Maybe , God knows best.

Dear God – Is there any justice for people who are bad in their lifetime ? It will help tremendously to know…….

Tampon truth:

Choline is used to bleach the cotton- which gets converted to Dioxins. ½ a tea spoon of which is enough to swipe off the planet !

Fibers are being left behind in our bodies which are floating in and around. These can never be removed by Any method…

With a heavy heart I lead you to an eye opening, Shiver inducing truth ladies http://www.subtleenergysolutions.com/toxic-tampons.html

It’s a cycle isn’t it ?

Baby-girl-periods-maiden-women-mother-menopause-grandmother-oldest granny-and it tapers off….burnt or dug in-ed !

Unguarded Freedom always comes at a cost – In this context at the cost of Uterine problems.

Bleach ? yes women have been bleaching their face and bodies for donkies years and skin breathes in everything. Right ?

Hence the conclusion that I draw is our bodies are Toxic already and to top it all, you insert the tampon which is not Organic into your vagina – resulting in Dioxin.

Fame of Deadly Dioxin ?

“Dioxin is one of the most dangerous chemicals on the planet and literally a tablespoon [of it] would kill everyone on the planet,”. “It’s that deadly.” AND

“Chlorine, whether in laundry, swimming pools, or in tampons, breaks down into a deadly chemical called dioxin.”

Tampons are made of a variety of ingredients, “Tampons are not just cotton,” Perlingieri said. “They are made of dyes, fragrances, super-absorbent chemicals.” She said research has found a link between uterine problems and bleached tampons.

“In the last 25 years, millions of women–teens through women in elder years–have uterine-related troubles,” she said. “Part of the trouble we know from research is directly related to bleaching of tampons.”

Chlorine from bleach eventually turns to dioxin, Perlingieri said. “All tampons are bleached with the exception of two companies,” she said. “Chlorine, whether in laundry, swimming pools, or in tampons, breaks down into a deadly chemical called dioxin.”

“Dioxin is one of the most dangerous chemicals on the planet and literally a tablespoon [of it] would kill everyone on the planet,” she said. “It’s so deadly.”

Jill Wood, an instructor in Penn State’s women’s studies department who received her master’s degree studying menstruation and menstrual health, said she does not use tampons as a precaution for her health and safety.

“I don’t use commercial tampons,” she said. “I don’t think the health risks are reasonable. I also eat organic food. Pesticides and dioxins are not safe in food or tampons.”

She said tampon companies underestimate the effects of dioxin. “Tampon manufacturers say that [tampons] are safe and levels of dioxin are so low that they are almost undetectable,” she said. “[That may be] true, but we only need a small trace amount for dioxin to do damage. It accumulates in our bodies over our lifetime and it’s not something the body can ever get rid of. Ingesting it in food is one thing, but putting it in vaginas is another.”

Tierno said chlorine bleach, while safer than other bleaches, is not safe in respect to the large amount of tampons women can use in their lifetime.

“The chemical used to bleach tampons, chlorine dioxide, is better than chlorine bleaches used previously,” he said. “Even in small amounts, it is no good and many women use tampons throughout their lives. This is quite significant.”

Perlingieri also believes dioxin is unsafe because women use a lot of tampons. “Women use 11 to 12,000 tampons over their life cycle … maybe more with teens using them,” she said. “All that dioxin going into a woman’s bloodstream and all those fibers wandering around in a woman’s body–that’s part of the toxic brew. Tampon companies have known for decades that the ingredients in products are not safe.” Unwrapping the myths more here.

Okay ! Now for some good news : ) there Always is 😉

Little known to us there is this wonder device that our sisters in the west have been using for a Long time. I think culture has a lot to do with this as to why this information is so hidden from us in east but nevertheless; Miss Detective has it and is ready to share 😉

Yes ! It’s creepy, clumsy, silly piece of silicon at the looks of it    B   U   T , quick smart thinking and rethinking tells us we should give it a try !

Because no one else will keep our body healthy for us. We and only we are entrusted with this task.

Most popular brand is Divacup http://www.divacup.com/en/home- I have been trying to source it’s dealership. I want to own this cup !

Methodology to use these God sent cups can be read at http://www.divacup.com/en/home/faqs/ and it shall explain it all !

These are reusable ! For a poor economy as India, I would have believed this would have been our 1st choice and not use-once-throw products like pads and tampons ! If my mom would have introduced this to me long time back and had she been using this all this while. We would have saved …hmmm let me calculate 😉 I push my Math’s ALL THE TIME !

Tampons used during our lifetime= 12,000

1 pack of 32 tampons cost             = 180 /-

Therefore                                              =12000/32*180

INR                                                          = 67500 /-

Me & Mum                                            = 135000 /- so quite a lot ! We could have shopped !!!!

I would have bought Sliver 😉

Well, I will lead you to the well and let you decide if you want to drink from it or not. That’s the karma of an informer and sharer. Rest that follows is the karma of the body/soul as everyone has their own journey to cover and lessons to learn.

I take a bow here and leave you to ponder to the deepest core of your scared vagina’s. The doors that open to the being of a tampon or the squishiness of it with a pad.


BTW DeAnna L’am is conducting long distance training for women on topics related to Menstruation http://www.deannalam.com/training/2012-training-2/. She has loads of other information’s like “A mother-daughter care package”

  1. Thanks for your support!
    Together we can bring consciousness far and wide… Together we can change the world!
    Wanted to draw your attention (all, not only spoon feeders 🙂 ) to the reality of the CURRENT death toll as result of TSS.
    ‘You Are Loved’ is a TSS Resource site with info & stories, sadly created by a mother of a 21 year old who died of TSS only a year ago…
    Here’s the link, get educated!


    • Dear DeAnna,

      Couldn’t sit for a long time after realizing you had written in. Such a honor to have you write in. You are an icon as i see it in the women space, not many women we can look up to for help and advice.

      Thank you so much for spreading awareness. I am trying as much as i can, given the time and resources but this will keep increasing.
      Please feel free to be in touch for any assistance i can provide to spread the word far and wide.
      Would love to be That Drop in the ocean you are creating !

      Much love and blessings ! May you have all that you need from the Universe,

      Mystickally Awed and Huge Blessings,


  2. Thank you for this post!

    You ARE Loved is a nonprofit with a double mission – that of raising awareness about tampon related Toxic Shock Syndrome and providing factual information about menstruation.

    We need your help to raise awareness.

    QUESTION: Did you know that tampon related Toxic Shock Syndrome is real, relatively common, and can be deadly?

    OUR STORY: When 20 year old Amy Rae Elifritz (the ARE in You ARE Loved) experienced flu-like symptoms last summer the fact that she was menstruating seemed unimportant. A few days later, on June 13, 2010, she died from Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS). Lisa Elifritz, Amy’s mom, founded the non-profit You ARE Loved to help raise awareness about the link between tampons and TSS with the goal of saving lives while providing factual menstrual information and support to women of all ages.

    OUR REQUEST: Would you consider writing a blog post to raise awareness about this rarely discussed topic? Our hope is that your words will reach women who otherwise would remain unaware. Early diagnosis can literally be the difference between life and death. Additionally, many women remain unaware of alternative feminine hygiene products that do not carry the same risk of TSS.

    MORE INFORMATION: I encourage you to visit our website (http://you-are-loved.org), check us out on Facebook and Twitter, read our informational brochure, view a two part story by the Indianapolis CBS affiliate WISH-TV (part 1 and part 2), see what some 40+ other bloggers have written (page of links), and do your own research.

    YOUR BLOG POST: When you write about TSS and link to You ARE Loved, please share the url so that we can include it on our links page. We also promote these posts through our Facebook page and on Twitter.

    THANKS: Thanks in advance for considering the opportunity to partner with You ARE Loved in our effort to raise awareness about tampon related Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS).

    I hope to hear from you! And, thanks again for your post!


    • Greetings Suzan,

      It’s a YES to ALL your requests !

      I want to write a blog post for ‘You are Loved’
      I shall share the link in future.
      I will be reading all the suggested sites asap !
      Want to Partner with ‘YAL’ infact can’t wait to get started !

      It has been a blessing to hear from you. Makes me more involved in the field that i feel most for- ‘Women & Children’.

      Look forward to our journey together,

      Mystickal Blessings,


  3. I am sad! I thought I found the ultimate tool to freedom. I don’t think I will change back to where I came from and am not sure I want to even explore anything different. 😦

    Comfortably numb,


    • Greetings Deeps,

      I share your numbness …. i felt it too.
      I can suggest Organic Tampons in that case and alternating that with high quality Toilet papers(rolls) during night time. When the flow is at it’s lowest.
      Health and glow keeps few brands like ‘Tampo’ which are non bleached. Also if you can source few Organic Tampons even that will give your body some breather.

      No harm in trying out safe/body saving alternates. Many things still waiting to be explored and hugged.

      Here’s wishing you more power to change and save our temple, which is our body.

      Mystickal Blessings,
