What Really Happens Throughout Your Menstrual Cycle

 

 

It’s a common theme I see as a Naturopath. Young women going through high school and into their early adulthood, without the empowering understanding of their hormones and precious reproductive cycle.

I was no different! To be honest, throughout my teens I didn’t know when and how ovulation took place. I was equipped with the basics – knowing I inconveniently had my period once a month but because I was on the oral contraceptive pill, I wouldn’t fall pregnant. I was oblivious to the fact that my ovaries had shut down and I wasn’t ovulating, let alone getting an explanation from my GP about potential short and long term side effects of taking the “innocent” daily pill.

It wasn’t until my naturopathy studies that I began to truly understand the intricate happenings of a woman’s cycle, both naturally and on synthetic hormones. It fascinated me and once I was supporting patients in clinic, I developed a...

The Hormone Imbalance Causing Energy & Weight Challenges

 

Hormones have the significant job in your body of delivering important chemical messages to your tissues and organs. Ultimately this controls functions such as your metabolism, hunger, cravings, sexual function, physiology, reproduction, moods and energy levels as well as skin and hair health.

Did your ears prick up when I mentioned energy and metabolism? If this is an area you’re struggling with then it might be time to address your thyroid gland health. Thyroid gland conditions are 4-5 times more likely to develop in women than in men and will contribute to issues with weight gain and fatigue, among much more.

Why You’re Feeling So Irritable

Why You’re Feeling So Irritable

As I chat with women just like you and ask how you are feeling, I repeatidly hear cranky, short tempered, low tolerance, snappy, emotional, moody and irritable!

You may feel out of control and in some cases a completely different person in different times of your menstrual cycle. The common culprit of these cycle driven symptoms is premenstrual syndrome (PMS). As 90% of women experience one or more symptoms of PMS, it has often been accepted as a ‘normal’ part of a woman’s cycle.

Although it may seem that this is just something you (and your loved ones) may have to accept, it’s important to investigate why you may be feeling this way and what you can do to overcome it.

WHAT IS PMS

Often experienced ‘pre’ period, the symptoms of PMS occur in different patterns and times of the cycle for each woman. You can present with PMS symptoms anywhere from day 7, through to just before your period around...

Lifestyle Hacks For Healthy Hormones

Have you ever thought about how your lifestyle is effecting your hormone health? For a long time, I was so focused on getting my diet right, that I forgot about the important environmental impacts that were contributing to my health challenges.

I now cringe when I jump in a car with a ‘smelly tree’, hold my breath when I walk past someone with a strong perfume scent and avoid bright lights at night. Why? As I was writing my book: Balanced, The Natural Way To Healthy Hormones, it became very clear how disruptive environmental stressors can be to achieving regular periods, clear skin, relaxed moods and vibrant energy levels.

Where should you start? Right here, with my powerful guide to encourage an environment that supports healthy hormones for you and your loved ones.
