S01 E17 – What Your PMS Could Be Telling You

S01 E17 – What Your PMS Could Be Telling You

Acne, low back pain, bloating, changes in your appetite, big time cravings, maybe you’re crying a lot but you don’t know why, maybe some depression or anxiety, feeling extremely fatigued and tired, very irritable, hot flashes, joint pain, mood swings, and the list goes on and on…

Have you ever experienced any of those in the past? What is causing all those symptoms? And before you say it is normal, or it is a part o being a woman/mom/wife, etc, let me clarify that these might be symptoms of PMS and PMDD. So today, we’ll be diving deep into the world of lifestyle components and their importance in dealing with PMS and PMDD.

We’ll explore the role of mental and emotional support, the impact of chemical exposure, and the significance of using natural and non-toxic personal care products. But that’s not all-we’ll also discuss the connection between sleep and PMS symptoms, the limitations of Western medicine in addressing certain issues, and the importance of not ignoring the warning signs our bodies give us.

In this week’s episode, we discuss…

  • Decode the underlying triggers of PMS symptoms and the insightful correlations with gut health and hormonal imbalances.
  • Grasp the importance of focusing on gut health as a catalyst for achieving clear skin and hormonal harmony.
  • Develop an understanding of the journey towards hormonal healing, and why cultivating patience is key.
  • Learn about individualized supplementation strategies that can nurture hormonal balance in your body.
  • Recognize the difference between PMS and PMDD and the imperative need for their precise diagnosis and proper treatment.

Additional Resouces

Your gut is responsible for manufacturing, regulating, and metabolizing hormones. So if your gut is struggling, so are your hormones. It will be near impossible to balance your hormones, especially with an estrogen dominance, if your gut is not in tip-top shape.

Paragraph

Let's get your skin finally cleared up.

Hint: acne is an external symptom of an internal issue. That's why years of prescriptions, medicated creams and fancy facials haven't gotten you the results you're after. Getting rid of acne is an inside job and we're here to help you do it.

I feel like I didn't know why I would go through good spells before and then terrible breakouts. My energy levels and motivation have also returned. This is all so huge for me.

"I actually enjoy the look of my face with less make-up."

 I use to wear a lot of powder and concealer to cover the break out areas, as well as to hide my scars. Both my breakouts and scars are lessening in amount and redness!!
