Why your periods & hormones are painful/heavy/awful/non-existent {203}

May 25, 2022 | Podcast

In this week’s episode, we are looking at why your periods are awful, why your hormones are driving you crazy and what you can do about it.

We’ll look at what’s going on, how you can alleviate some of the symptoms and what the two key things are that everybody can do to support their sex hormones and create more balance and balance out their hormones, whether you’re perimenopausal, whether you’re PCOS, you’ve not had a period, whether your periods are heavy, whether they’re irregular.

These are some of the key foundations that will help – wherever you sit on that spectrum. I’ll explain how your periods can be zero drama and really serve you.

Cos a lot of women feel like their periods are an inconvenience, are shameful or embarrassing but that doesn’t need to be the case.

You might be listening to or reading this and be thinking, ‘I hate my periods’ or maybe you’re struggling with fertility issues. But these things will really help whether your perimenopause, menopause, whether you’re trying to get your period back or whether your period is miserable.

I honestly love periods, but it hasn’t always been this way. I used to hate my period because they were really heavy and really painful or my cycle was really short or it just disappeared for a while and I’d go months without it. Then it would come back.

It was irregular for the first decade of my life. (I got my periods really early) So, I didn’t know when it was coming. It just arrived and I literally just had to go and lie in a dark room. Turn the lights off until somebody could go get me some drugs. They would take half an hour to kick in and then I could function again as a human.

Now. They are incredible. I feel like they’re my superpower.

I’ve been pregnant for 18 months of the last couple of years and I really missed cycling. I missed my periods because I think when you can make them really healthy and really heal them, then they can become such an incredible way to live your life.

I honestly think that but they need to be balanced first.

In this episode, I’m going to share three different clients I’ve worked with in the last 18 months to show you different pictures and what their key reasons were and how we improved their symptoms.
