The Cycle

Women, we are blessed with this biology, it’s not meant to work against us, its meant to work for us. Women get to see how our body is managing stress, inflammation, how our gut and hormones are doing. We have a tool, we just need to become body literate.

Throughout the month, women have a rise and fall of hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone.
During the first half of your cycle, the Follicular Phase estrogen is highest, your energy may start low but rapidly speed up as ovulation occurs.
Post ovulation is the Luteal phase. Progesterone rises and body temperature increases. Energy remains high in the first part of the luteal phase and then begins to decline as mensuration gets closer, knowing this can be life changing, instead of forcing that High intensity session in the gym, you can focus on lowering the intensity to support your hormones.
Although it may be common to have PMS, heavy bleeding and emotional mood swings, this is not healthy or normal.

Your period and cycle should come and go with minimal interference with life. If you find yourself suffering from server PMS, heavy bleeding, breakouts, bad cramps or intense mood swings its time to start finding what the root cause may be and start balancing this out.

Did you know, you can eat to nourish each phase of your cycle, you can exercise to support your cycle and you plan your work and social responsibilities to be able to show up better

The next post, I will delve in to each phase of the cycle.
