One in five women bleed so heavily during their periods that they have to put their normal lives on hold just to deal with the heavy blood flow.

Bleeding is considered heavy if it interferes with normal activities. Blood loss during a normal menstrual period is about 5 tablespoons, but if you have heavy menstrual bleeding, you may bleed as much as 10 to 25 times that amount each month. You may have to change a tampon or pad every hour, for example, instead of three or four times a day.

Heavy menstrual bleeding can be common at various stages of your life—during your teen years when you first begin to menstruate and in your late 40s or early 50s, as you get closer to menopause. 

A few oils that help soothe the discomfort are Womens Blend whisper and Montly Blend Clary Calm.  

 

More over, the way we are understanding our menses and cycle is changing the way we feel and think about ourself. Kris LA.c and course creator of Feminine Cycle 101 express how sacred our cycle is. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) Looks at our cycles in a different way. The time from the start of your period to the start of the next one. It is a view that is guided by nature, Daoist principles and yin/yang theory. These principles are based on eating and living according to the rhythms of the seasons and your body’s own unique qualities, which leads to greater health and balance. By being mindful of how your cycle’s rhythms mirror the ebb and flow of the natural world, you can achieve a deeper, more intuitive understanding of your body.

According to NY Chi Acupuncture.
