It is unusual that you hear women looking forward to their period and embracing it as a gift. More often we hear women cursing it. Do you dread your time of the month? Does it bring an onslaught of mood swings, digestive problems, weight gain, bloating, exhaustion, or cramps? Is your period unreliable? Or excessively heavy, leaving you chronically anemic? All these are actually indicators that your body is out of balance. What you may have been taught to see as a curse on womankind is in fact a perfect barometer for the state of your health.
Stress, overwork, inadequate nutrition, and other factors common to our modern lifestyle can destabilize your hormones and cause you to suffer unnecessarily. As a culture we have lost the wisdom for how women can care for ourselves and our cycles. The purpose of this book is to give you the tools to understand and balance your cycles. You no longer have to fear or be annoyed by your menstruation. It can be the source of your power and rejuvenation.
