Disabling Menstrual Cycles
Terrible periods are NOT a “normal” part of life.
Women, we need to talk. I know you grew up being told that suffering through “that time of the month” is just part of being a woman. But, aren’t you sick of the headaches, acne, bloating, PMS, scheduling your life around your periods and, of course, the PAIN?!
I want you to know that it doesn’t have to be this way. How do I know? Because I’ve worked with hundreds of women who came to see me because, just like you, they were tired of suffering month after month and living on over-the-counter pain relievers and/or birth control pills.
As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am an expert in evaluating WHY you’re having such terrible periods, and then building you an evidence-based, well rounded, health promoting, maintainable program that will get you out of PAIN and on to living your best life.
You’re probably thinking that I make this sound too easy. Well, making real change is not easy. You might need to change how you eat, take some daily supplements and commit to caring for yourself and for the neglected areas of your life.
I remember, years ago, a teenager came in with her mother and as soon as I asked her “Can you tell me more about your terrible periods?” she burst into tears. The stress that she carried with her over her unpredictable and disabling menstrual cycle was too much to handle. Her pediatrician recommended daily birth control pills, but after reading about long term effects, she talked to her mom about starting with a more natural option first. I am happy to report that by the time she left for college (less than a year later), her periods were both predictable and manageable and her treatment plan did not prevent her from enjoying college life.
