Syncing with your Cycle
Why Living in Sync With Your Cycles Can Dramatically Improve Your Hormonal and Pelvic Health
Modern life can force us to abandon our wild feminine side and work through our periods, as if no changes are taking place, forcing us to wear tampons and take Midol to make sure they don’t slow down our progress. We’ve been taught at a young age to hide our period from the outside world, causing us to be out of touch with our natural cycle. But that ebb and flow is there to renew and strengthen us. When we work with the natural cycle of our bodies, we allow ourselves to heal and recover on a level that’s otherwise difficult to achieve. The problem is, most health programs and protocols, even alternative medicine, have lost connection with the female body.
If a stack of partially-read health books, an herbal supplement graveyard and a drained bank account sounds all too familiar in trying to heal yourself, there’s a better method to reconnect with your energetic and vital self.
Living in sync with your cycle is all about reconnecting with who you are as an intuitive, life-giving, powerful woman in the world. That means waving goodbye to:
- being everything to everyone.
- running yourself into the ground day in and day out.
- feelings of inadequacy, failure and weakness as a woman in this world.
You will connect with your true self as you honor your natural cycle, and as you connect with that wild feminine flow, a new sense of purpose and power will naturally become part of your life.
You will make a bigger impact in your career, in your family and in everything you cherish dearly. And as the positive changes take shape, you will unlock a new way of being.
THERE ARE 4 DISTINCT PHASES OF YOUR MENSTRUAL CYCLE
Learning how to live within each of these phases is the key factor to showing up more powerfully in the world, and resolving a host of medical problems that plague the vast majority of women.
We’re told that problems like PMS are “normal” and being on birth control, which only covers up the symptoms, is the only way to deal combat the problem. Thankfully, there’s a better way to live.
Working with the 4 phases of the menstrual cycle can be grouped into 2 overarching goals:
- Optimizing natural detoxification functions for a healthy metabolism and to properly process and remove hormones and hormone-mimicking substances.
- Optimizing inflammatory cascades in the body, which impact the severity of symptoms of common pelvic complaints, interface with the health of the gut (and therefore our skin and mental health), regulate blood sugar control and help balance the entire endocrine system.
Common Health Problems That Syncing with Your Cycle Can Help Eliminate
When we accept and practice a new way of living with (instead of against) our menstrual cycle and natural physical and mental flows, we begin to positively impact a host of conditions, including:
- Chronic fatigue
While these female-specific conditions are sadly way too common, they should not make you feel “normal”!
“This all sounds good,” we hear you say, “but how can one methodology help with all of these things?”
What we advocate – and practice as two women who have dealt with infertility, endometriosis, PMS and a plethora of other female unpleasantries – is living and functioning in a way that supports the body’s natural tendency to rebalance.
No woman will sync with her menstrual cycle in the same way as any other woman!
