I can’t believe I’m writing these words…
But last week, I had my first *almost* pain-free period IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
I’ve had my period for 12 years - and every single cycle, until January of this year, has been absolutely debilitating.
My cycle started improving as soon as I started pro-metabolic eating about 9 months ago, but there has always been some lingering pain.
As crazy as it sounds, I’m thankful for the symptoms I’ve experienced. God gave us symptoms as a wake-up call that something isn’t right. If I didn’t have these debilitating menstrual symptoms for all these years, I would never have known that something very scary and serious could be going on internally.
This is important, because estrogen dominance is NOTHING to mess with. Estrogen dominance, untreated, can lead to diseases such as endometriosis, adenomyosis, cancer, and DNA damage.
Even though I’ve come a long way, I’m still a work in progress! I’m not 100% pain-free, but looking back on how far I’ve come is truly a miracle. I’m so thankful God had me walk through this pain so that I could understand my body and help other women on their journeys of understanding their bodies.
