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. 

Enroll, understand what you body is telling you by learning about your cycle from Kris. It’s no secret and natrually we can evolve through our cycles mor organicly without all the painful mess.

My love for Health Freedom runs DEEP!

Not everyone knows about essential oil, but most everyone is curious. That's when I come in. I love using them talking about them and sharing them. I'm not the only one, in fact, millions of people around the world are too. 

What drives me about using essential oils is where they come from and how they are the same essence that Chinese Medicine doctors use for thousands of years. Not only Chinese but also Ayurvedic doctors too. 

Spearmint is the oil of confidence speech. It's great for anyone who would like some extra support expressing themselves verbally. It also aids with occasional indigestion, bad breath, eases respiratory issues, skin care, helps with focus and fatigue, has calming and cooling properties and more!

Tangerine is the oil of cheer and creativity. This one can lift the darkest of moods and helps us create the lightness of heart we see in children. Tangerine reminds us to be curious and filled with wonderment and to release the excessive sense of duty and rigid standards we have for ourselves. For our physical bodies it helps boost our immune systems, antioxidant and cell protection, it;s super uplifting, helps all digestive upset, helps swelling (and cellulite!), skin irritations, respiratory issues, boosts metabolism and weight loss and helps aid circulation. Tangerine has been used for over 3000 years in integrative medicine.

Lime is the oil of zest for life. Who doesn't want more of that right?! Lime is renewing, energizing and purifying. It instills courage and cheer in the heart and helps us stay in a space of gratitude of life. For our physical bodies, it can ease an occasional sore throat, it also helps with respiratory, digestive and urinary issues, memory and clarity, it's uplifting and eases inflammation. Fun fact... lime juice used to be used by British sailors to prevent scurvy. Little gut critters don't like Lime!

Today you can try all three of these oils for ONE! This offer won't last so if you like to know more about essential oils and want to try them out now is the time!
