Hey there, Womankind tribe!

Let's have a real talk about periods—because we're all in this together, right? Our monthly flow isn't just about bleeding; it's a window into the intricate dance of hormones and rhythms within our bodies. So, let's unpack the mysteries of your menstrual cycle and embrace its wisdom.

Your Period: More Than Just Bleeding

Yep, it's that time of the month again, but there's more to it than meets the eye. Your menstrual cycle is like your body's monthly roadmap, guided by hormones and unique to you. Each phase has its own story to tell.

Insights from Our Own Lorena Framis ND

To shed light on the magic of our cycles, we're turning to our very own Lorena Framis ND, a trusted expert in naturopathic medicine. With her guidance, we'll unravel the secrets of your period and what it's trying to tell you.

Unlocking the Purpose of Your Period

"Your period isn't just about shedding uterine lining," Lorena explains. "It's your body's way of resetting after preparing for a potential pregnancy. When conception doesn't happen, your body hits the restart button, ready for the next cycle."

Navigating the Length and Flow

"Periods vary from person to person," Lorena shares. "Typically lasting three to seven days and occurring every 21 to 35 days. While some irregularities are normal, significant deviations may signal underlying issues that deserve attention."

When Your Period Goes MIA

"Missing periods can be a red flag," Lorena advises. "Beyond pregnancy, stress, illness, or hormonal imbalances could be at play. It's essential to investigate potential causes and address any imbalances."

Deciphering PMS: Fact vs. Fiction

"PMS isn't just a myth—it's a reality," says Lorena. "While some mood swings and discomfort are normal, severe symptoms may indicate PMDD, a condition that requires attention and support."

Understanding your menstrual cycle is a journey of self-discovery and empowerment. It's about tuning in to your body's signals, honoring its rhythms, and embracing the beauty of your cycle.

So, here's to celebrating the ebb and flow, the highs and lows, and everything in between. Together, let's navigate our periods with grace, knowledge, and a whole lot of self-love.
