- being cleansed
- a time when you should be resting more
- when you need your own space a little more (I think this is why we get grumpy)
Gaining improved hormone health can also assist you in many ways to find a balance in your body, emotionally and physically. Now I'm no expert but I have surrounded myself with experts in Naturopathy, Chiropractic and Chinese Medicine to assist me in gaining a balance of my hormones when they get off kilter.
A few examples of my hormone health needing some assistance from alternative therapies are below:
1 - My period never returned 3 years after my second pregnancy, even though physically from blood tests and scans nothing was wrong. Stress could have been the underlying factor, however Chinese Medicine saw it as my body was lacking blood, so my body wasn't going to cleanse it if I didn't have enough. Within a few months of building up my blood, my period was back.
2 - Recently my menstruating cycle had been getting longer and longer, 32, 33 then 36 days, and my energy and mood swings were cycling a lot too. This was a signal to me that I was getting off kilter again. I found a local Chinese Medicine practitioner, and with some regular acupuncture appointments to improve my hormonal balance I'm back to a 29 day cycle, no period pain and very little mood swings in comparison to previous months.
My take home message here is to listen to your body and seek out support from a practitioner that resonates with you. The practitioners I love to see and resonate with are listed below. Wishing you all a beautiful day tomorrow.
