Not getting your period regularly? Then this post is for you!
I am so excited to announce that my brand new online program, Get Your Period Back, is open for enrollment.
This is a 6-week online group program that teaches you everything you need to know about recovering from amenorrhea (AKA a missing period).
If you aren’t getting a regular menstrual cycle and you’re ready to finally do what it takes to get it back for good, come join us in the program!
And if you’re wondering why you should care if your period is MIA…
Your Period Is A Barometer For Your Overall Health
Let’s be honest… having a period every month is kind of annoying. #realtalk
Yes, they’re a natural part of a woman’s life and they’re a sign that our bodies are fertile. They’re what makes our bodies so different from men’s, and when our hormones are in balance we feel amazing.
But frankly most of us wouldn’t complain if they simply disappeared.
And while it’s tempting to think that a missing period is a great thing… (no PMS! no mess! save tons of money on tampons!)
You and I both know that it’s a good indication that something deeper and more serious is going on with your body.
Maybe your doctor told you if you don’t get your period back ASAP, you’ll be at higher risk for…
Now the truth is, for most of us those issues seem like a long ways off. It’s so much easier to focus on the more immediate issues in our lives.
And I agree… there’s no need to dwell or live in fear of the future.
However as time goes on and you’re still not getting your period, you might start to notice…
Your cycle is an indication of how well your ovaries are producing sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone. When your hormones are at a healthy level, it means your body is getting everything it needs to thrive and function at its best.
And healthy hormones show through in lush hair, glowing skin, great energy and a healthy sex drive.
Think about it for a moment from a biological point of view.
When your body is stressed or malnourished in any way, the first thing to go is your fertility. After all, having a baby would be a bad idea if there’s a famine or war going on. (Consider this from an ancestral health perspective!)
Your body knows it would be wiser to spend its nutrients and energy on more important things like brain health, organ health and the fight-or-flight response.
These things are crucial to our survival, while menstruation and fertility is not.
This is why I believe that we women should use our menstrual cycle as a barometer for our health.
If it’s not happening at all (or it’s extremely irregular) that is a strong signal that the body is stressed out in some way. Maybe it’s too much exercise, too much stress, or the wrong types of food.
Whatever it is, it’s a reliable sign from your body that something is off.
And if we want to avoid the long term health risks I mentioned above – and generally live a more vibrant and healthy life – we need to make sure our hormones are firing on all cylinders.
It doesn’t matter if it’s only been a few months or as much as a few years since your last cycle. Getting it back – without resorting to The Pill – is imperative for your long term health.
