Healthy Periods – Are They Possible?
Menstruation is one of the most essential processes to occur within a woman’s body. With that being said it’s even more important it’s granted proper care and attention.
If you desire to nourish your body during your periods, we'd recommend drinking Red Raspberry Tea, getting plenty of rest, eating healthy foods, and listening to your body during your time of menstruation.
The menstrual cycle, which is counted from the first day of one period to the first day of the next, isn't the same for every woman, however. Menstrual flow might occur every 21 to 35 days and last two to seven days. PMS symptoms can occur before or during the period and include fatigue, cramps, cravings and irritability.
So what is a healthy period? A healthy period when we as women embrace the changes to our bodies and realize these changes are necessary to conceive and carry a baby to full term. To use the time to dive into self and align with feminine energy and power and to stand in awe of our beautiful bodies, loving ourselves the absolute best.
Physically a healthy period should look like:
❤️ 28-31 day menstrual cycle
❤️ Bright red blood from start to finish of the period and no clots, brown discharge or spotting
❤️ Light cramping, moderate blood flow
❤️ Only PMS symptom should be fatigue (as our bodies do what they were designed to do)
❤️ Bleed for 4-5 days
If you suffer from PMS symptoms prior to the cycle or are not experiencing a healthy period on a monthly basis, it may help to schedule an appointment for a yoni steam. Yoni steaming can help alleviate symptoms like bloating, cramps, moodiness, and headaches by increasing blood flow and circulation to the vagina and the uterus and clearing old blood/stagnation from the womb. Please note, however, that many other factors come in to play like diet, birth control, lifestyle, and stress!
Periods don't have to be panful. Switching to organic products, menstrual cups or period underwear help reduce pain as well. Check out my list of must have period products from Amazon:
