Since it is a douche: preparation, just be careful that you do not use it too often (more than once a week), since excessive douching is a reason for frequent vaginal or urinary tract infections in women. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Rephresh safe to use: Yes - as long as you don't use it on a regular basis as a source of vaginal hygiene. It should not be used more than twice a week. it contains non toxic ingredients

Probably not: Many experts advise against douching due to the fact that it disturbs the regular protective vaginal bacterial populations. Instead, start a probiotic supplement. That's "putting points on the scoreboard" by adding healthy bacteria that naturally produce a healthy vaginal ph.

Avoid: Rephresh clean balance and other douches should be avoided: they don't treat vaginal infections and they remove the body's own natural defenses. On the other hand, occasional use of their gel may be helpful in preventing frequent infections, but not for treatment. There isn't any good evidence that probiotics taken by mouth (and yogurt) will prevent vaginal infections--probably a myth.

Any benefit from hunching over at 90?Like better balance?

Most likely not.: Hunching over will change your center of gravity significantly and will most likely make you more prone to falling down. Consider asking your physician to prescribe physical therapy for strengthening and conditioning exercises.

Make conscious choic: Work / life balance is a challenge for most of us. Recognizing the challenge (and choosing to take it on!) is the important first step. Prioritize sleep and time for you as a start. Use your calendar aggressively, including a schedule for family time and "you" time. Cliche, but true, no parent ever went to their grave wishing they had spent more time at the office...

Personal: Every person is different and depends on your goals. I would say if you have a desk job workout at least 4!times a week for an hour ronan hour and a half of moderate intensity activity combined with some muscle building weights.
