By (author) Kathie Bishop
The 'go to' self-help hand book for all aspects of vaginal health and ecology.
In this book, medical herbalist Kathie Bishop draws on her passion and clinical experience of helping women achieve vaginal health and comfort following chronic or recurrent issues.
Often a subject that causes shame, Kathie's mission is not only to break down that taboo and normalise vaginal health, but also provide good solid information that everyone can draw on to understand and navigate this previously mysterious space.
Using natural methods based on research, experience and tradition, this handbook aims to help in a variety of uncomfortable, but common, situations. It's Your Power Portal covers all ages of female life, from neonate to post menopausal, and the conditions commonly experienced at each stage, bringing in information from the newly advancing field of the vaginal microbiome mapping, as well as commonly accessible therapeutics, and the best ways to use them.
Kathie is careful to point out when you should get yourself or a loved one to see a health professional, and also brings in women's voices and experience to make this a truly rounded, accessible and useful compendium.

This is a witty and informative book which takes the taboo out of vaginal health. Full of useful information to see you through every stage of your life. This is a fantastic reference book that every family should have on their bookshelf.
Kathie's book is a must have for people with vulvas. Beautifully written, filled with applicable knowledge, it gives you the power over your health. I will be coming back to it for the years to come. Thank you, Kathie!
This book is an absolute find, and a must for every female. It’s well written, concise and for every, and anyone to understand, whatever their age.
I like Kathie’s style of writing, a bit witty and packed full of knowledge, with a powerful message that it’s ‘your’ FEMALE body and worth looking after in the right way.
I’m only sorry that this book wasn’t around when I was younger (now in my 70s). Well done for such an informed and inspiring book.
I would definitely give this book 5*
This is a really accessible, clearly written non judgemental book on the under-represented topic of vagina health. More than half the population own a vagina however the shame and taboo associated with it often means there is little or detrimental knowledge circulating (cleaning the vagina!!!!) that takes precedence. Kathie Bishop covers a large range of topics in the book and is like a friend guiding you through every step of the way. If you have ever struggled with vaginal discomfort, infections or are going through a life milestone such as puberty or menopause then this book will be helpful. Highly recommend.
Absolutely love the way that Kathie breaks the taboo and explores all areas of vaginal health, normalizing all those little irritations (pardon the pun)!
This is a fantastic, empowering self-help book that I would highly recommend. Get your copy now!
As a certified Sex, Love and Relationships Coach, I have to say that this book covers it all – from re-framing how we think about our bodies and our sexuality to support our pleasure (and have more of it!!) to taking good care of the gift that we're given of being woman (whether by choice or by biology), this book is full of wisdom and insight as much as it is an easy-reading practical guide full of rich information. I'll be recommending this to my clients for sure.
