8 Ways I Support My Menstrual Health

The menstrual cycle is not something that’s disconnected from the rest of our health and thus can’t be treated in a disconnected manner.

These are some of the key things I do to support the health of my menstrual cycle. I’m not a nutritionist, so I’m not giving health/food advice here, what I am doing is sharing what I’ve learnt over the years of working with my cycle – and this is what works for me.

To take care of and support my overall health and the health of my menstrual cycle I:

  1. Don’t focus on hormones
  2. Focus on liver health
  3. Don’t eat eggs, dairy, meat, soy, corn or canola oil
  4. Get the heavy metals out of my body
  5. Use natural skincare, menstrual products, cleaning products and perfumes
  6. Support my immune system & overall health
  7. Eat loads of fruit
  8. Heal emotional stress & trauma
