How can we help
Menstrual health and hormonal balance is a crucial component of wellbeing for women. A regular cycle is between 28 to 30 days and should not be accompanied by premenstrual symptoms (bloating, mood swings, tender breasts, PMS). However, for most women, that time of the month doesn’t come by peacefully, and for some it may not arrive at all.
Often as a result many women go on the pill for many reasons such as irregular cycles, amenorrhea (no periods), skin outbreaks, mood swings, painful periods, heavy periods, endometriosis and polycystic ovary syndrome. The pill can help manage some symptoms but does not get to the root of the problem and it can cause complications later in life if and when we decide to start a family.
Let our team of expert practitioners help you get to the root of your symptoms and help restore a healthy hormonal balance. We offer emotional support, lifestyle advice to assist with correcting any hormonal balance and the stress associated with it.
