As menstruators, our cycles are a vital and integral part of our lives. However, for many it can be a challenging experience. From painful cramps to mood swings, heavy periods, and irregular cycles, our periods can sometimes feel like a burden.
But are they designed to be?
Thankfully we now have Menstrual Cycle Coaches supporting us to navigate our menstrual health and have better periods.
A Menstrual Cycle Coach is a trained professional who can provide education and support on menstrual health and the cycles cyclical nature. They can guide us into a deeper understanding our menstrual cycles, how to track our cycles, periods, and make lifestyle changes that can improve our overall cycle and menstrual health.
In this article, we will explore five ways a menstrual coach can help us have better periods.
- Education and Support
One of the primary roles of a Menstrual Cycle Coach is to provide education and support on the entire menstrual cycle. From understanding the menstrual cycle, the our cycle phases, how to track the cycle and lots more. Also providing information on menstrual products, including pads, tampons, menstrual cups, and period underwear. By understanding our menstrual health, we can make informed decisions in alignment with our cycles, into leading to better ovulatory and menstrual health.
- Hormone Balance
Hormones play a significant role in throughout our menstrual cycles. A Menstrual Cycle Coach can guide us into a grater hormonal knowledge, how to create balance and nurture them. This can also include providing guidance on lifestyle changes to support the cycle, including diet and exercise, that in turn can help regulate hormones. By achieving hormonal balance, we support reducing PMS symptoms, menstrual cramps, ovulation, regular cycles, mental health and so much more!
- Natural Remedies
Unfortunately many menstruators experience menstrual discomfort, like cramps, period pain and bloating. While a Doctor may recommend over-the-counter painkillers to provide temporary relief, a Menstrual Cycle Coach a long with the support of practitioners like Naturopaths and Nutritionists who’ll suggest natural remedies that holistically support alleviating menstrual discomfort. By incorporating natural remedies into our menstrual cycles health routine, we reclaim our cycles, create balance and harmony throughout the cycle.
- Mind-Body Connection
Our menstrual health is not just physical but also emotional. Menstrual Cycle Coaches are trained in the understanding of the mind-body connection and how it can have a huge impact on menstrual health. Customised suggestions like meditations, journaling, and other practices that can help reduce pre menstrual mood swings, and mental health.
- Sustainable Menstruation
Finally, a menstrual coach can help us transition to sustainable menstruation. Sustainable menstruation refers to the use of eco-friendly menstrual products that reduce waste and more positively impact the environment. A menstrual cycle coach can lead menstruators towards adopting sustainable menstrual product decisions, reducing globally carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the environment.
