From the monthly cycle of sex hormones to stress response hormones to metabolic hormones, these functions should happen naturally (and optimally) without intervention – much like the heart beating or lungs taking in air. Your body has an innate wisdom and capacity for staying on the road to health.
From the food we eat to the thoughts we think to the way we move (or don’t move) – our physical and energetic bodies can be obstructed by a myriad of experiences throughout daily life. And somewhere along the way, as these experiences accumulate, the body becomes less able to self-correct. This is when symptoms arise – advising that something is not functioning at its best within.
And in the world of women’s health in particular, these symptoms have become commonplace. The mood swings, acne, PMS, cramping, back pain, breast tenderness, hot flashes with menopause – the list goes on and on – have largely been adopted by society as simply part of being a woman.
But, in fact, these are not part of the birthright of women – no, they aren’t normal at all.
In fact, according to Chinese Medicine, the only symptom associated with a womans menstrual cycle should be moderate bleeding. Can you imagine? All of these possible discomforts are signals from your body that something is out of alignment within the synergistic interplay of your system.
While female hormonal imbalance is prevalent among modern women, it isn’t a new phenomenon. Internal and external stressors have been around as long as humans, and traditional healing systems had special protocols in place to assist women with hormonal-related complaints. Various internal remedies through food, herbs and other tonics, as well as external remedies such as bodywork or therapeutic steams and baths, have all been a part of women’s health and wisdom.
