Why our Cycles Matter for Our Health

cyclical wisdom Oct 15, 2023

When we think of our menstrual cycle we often think only of our reproductive organs: our ovaries, uterus, and the shedding of our endometrial lining during menstruation. 

However, our menstrual cycle is so much more. It is our fifth vital sign, reflecting what is happening with our overall health. This is why it is so empowering to understand what it is telling us.

Our cycles are sensitive mechanisms and can be impacted by how we are living our lives and nourishing our bodies.

Oestrogen and progesterone, our two main primary sex hormones, are important, not only for our fertility, but also for many other aspects of our health.
