Is it even possible to have a
Pain-free Menstrual cycle?
18 years ago, while I was in acupuncture school, one of my teachers described a healthy menstrual cycle as this:
No pain whatsoever
Blood begins to flow as if someone turned on a faucet - and when it is over, it turns off like a facet (so no spotting before or after period)
No breast tenderness, acne breakouts, nausea, vomiting, doubled over in pain, etc., etc.
I was like, WHAT? Who is this guy? Obviously he has never had a period so what does he know. All I ever knew was painful - in fact, doubled over in pain - periods. That was normal for me.
Little did I know, my periods were about to change...and never again did I experience that excruciating bearing down pain that had taken so many days of my life.
I received a few months of regular acupuncture and then just like he described...I had the best periods of my life. Pain-free, no clots, no spotting, and almost no PMS (I sometimes feel a little "off" the day before my period).
That was 18 years ago, and to this day I still cringe when I hear about someone suffering from a painful period. They sometimes have to miss work or stay home from school. Sometimes for days! I know it doesn't have to be this way, and I am grateful to share all the secrets I know on how to create a sacred moon cycle.
