Be kind to Yourself

In this 2-week phase, the estrogen gradually drops. As the progesterone increases, you will feel the need to unwind more often. Use it to complete some quiet projects and don’t try to supress potential hunger cravings - play along and be kind to your body. Eat grounding foods like roots and vegetables.

Slow Down

It’s your period time, and your progesterone drop signals the need to slow down, withdraw, hibernate, and spend some alone time. Avoid stress, get plenty of rest, and enjoy light and nutritious meals, walks in nature, stretching or yoga. Eat warming foods like stews and blood-building red meat.

Your routine should reflect what cycle stage you are in

The menstrual cycle is often the biggest impediment when creating healthy wellness routines. Hunger, lethargy, mental and physical stress are all symptoms we don’t want.
We make it easier for you to start and maintain a fitness or a wellness routine. We base our insights on hormonal shifts and teach you how to use them.

Tap into the power of your menstrual cycle

Adjusting your wellness routine around your cyclic hormonal changes helps you maximize your efforts and gets you in sync with your natural rhythm. Our programs are perfectly aligned with that.

“The reality is that our current medical standard is to suppress a women’s natural cycle at the first sign of imbalance, rather than educating women on the importance of diet, exercise and stress management to help promote improved hormonal balance.”
