Natural Remedies and Wellness for Women
Listen To Your Body
The body sends signals to us regarding its needs and potential issues. Some of these signals simply guide bodily functions like eating, eliminating (going to the bathroom), and perspiring. Other signals tell us when an action, something in our environment, or something we consumed may cause us harm. Pain, swelling, itching, stomach ache, and headaches let us know when something is wrong with our body.
Women's bodies experience an additional barrage of signals each month as part of their monthly cycle. Some menstruating women experience significant cramping, fatigue or moodiness in relation to the rise and fall of hormones during their cycle. Typically, these symptoms signal an imbalance in the woman's hormones which if corrected should alleviate her symptoms.
Women would benefit from learning to interpret their bodies' signals. By doing so, they can correct health issues by addressing their source.
Unfortunately, our society teaches people to power through discomfort and sometimes even pain or use pharmaceuticals to mask their symptoms.
