Growing up my mom always told me that my period would get more difficult as I got older, because that was what she thought to be a normal part of aging as a female. In my case, she was right. For years I suffered from severely painful periods. I had all the symptoms that you can think of: swollen painful breasts, bloating, nausea, intensely heavy flow, chocolate cravings, mood swings/intense emotion, loose bowels and cramps, oh the cramps!! My cramps would be so bad that for 1-2 nights of my cycle I would be rudely awoken by intense pain and I could do nothing to make myself feel better to fall back asleep.
It was at some point at 3 am, jumping back and forth between an epsom salts back and the toilet with a hot water bottle on my tummy that I decided this just couldn’t be normal.
I took my menstrual health into my own hands and went searching for a natural answer. Since that time, I no longer suffer from debilitating periods. Some are a bit worse than others, because I’m still on my journey, but they are 90% better than they’ve been in years and sometimes months go by with no symptoms at all!
A symptom-free cycle, is a healthy cycle and its one of the number one indicators that you will have a healthy pregnancy! If you think about it, your period is your body’s monthly way of preparing for a baby to make your womb its home. If that process is not functioning properly, how can your body host a healthy pregnancy?
