Menstrual Monday Part 1: Understanding What A NORMAL Period Is + Nutritional Considerations To Support Your Cycle
Did you know we have about 400 menstrual cycles in our lifetime? Yet, most of us know so little about how this amazing process really works, and why they’re so important to pay attention to and know how to interpret.
Most people grow up pretty much in the dark about how important our period health is and if they have any PMS issues such as hormonal acne, bloating, mood swings, digestive issues, cramps, heavy or light bleeds, regular or irregular menses they are given a bandaid - birth control. But there is SO much more to understand as there is a reason we are experiencing these things, AND there is a lot we can do to support our menstrual cycle!
Knowing the language of your cycles is not only empowering and really interesting as your menstrual cycle can tell you a tremendous amount about your hormonal and overall health.
This month we're going to be covering information you need to know about menstrual cycles, how nutrition and lifestyle impacts your cycle, birth control and more! We are going to look at how we can take control of our lives with a deeper understanding of our cycles and how hormone fluctuations impact how we should move and nourish our bodies.
