It doesn’t have to be like this!
When I was 13 years old, I had such intense cramping, bleeding, and low energy that the only solution that I was given was to be put on the pill. Although I do remember the doctor mentioning that ideally I would only stay on it for 7-10 years. Six years later as a young adult, I was exhausted, depressed, and I'd started to gain weight. I started to withdraw socially because it just took so much of my energy. I felt ashamed of being tired, because I was young and supposed to be full of energy (and that's what everyone kept saying). I felt like I was losing my good years. I started to learn about some of the adverse side effects of the pill as I was heading into my seventh year on it. I realized some of them were actually quite serious and I started to worry that staying on the pill would mess with my fertility, so I immediately got off of it.
But my PMS symptoms came back even more persistently - mood swings, excess stress, food cravings, weight gain, bloating, acne, insomnia - you know the drill. I would take pain killers and try to exercise a bit more to feel better in my body, with little effect. I thought that if I wanted to preserve my fertility, I would just have to suffer in silence for the rest of my life. I thought: I guess all the girls have to deal with this, and some have it worse than me, so why complain? But one day, I couldn't take it anymore. It was seriously disrupting my life. This was not going away on it's own and despite exercising more, my weight continued to increase and I was still exhausted! I realized that PMS and all the symptoms I was experiencing wasn’t normal and was actually a signal that something was off with my hormones! By looking at my biology and aligning my lifestyle to it, I could enjoy greater health and a problem-free period. All those years of suffering - it didn’t have to be like that!
When I finally addressed my hormonal imbalance, it was like night and day for me! I tuned into my natural cycle. I naturally detoxed endocrine disruptors. I made nutritious and other lifestyle choices that supported a natural healthy cycle. I felt so much better! No more fatigue, cramps, and annoying headaches! I felt alive and energized during the whole month, and was able to live the life that brought me joy. I lost weight easily and I was able to maintain my ideal weight without effort. I was healthy and happy. I had finally freed myself from my PMS and from all the ways it held me back.
