Homeopathy can help when you have Painful Periods
Do you suffer from Painful Periods? The Menstrual Cycle is here to serve you. Just think of the menstrual cycle as the seasons of the year for a minute. What does winter represent for you? For me, Nature is on hold, stillness is present! Have you ever been in a place where snow is everywhere? Can you feel the stillness in the air? That moment in winter is my favorite. Menstruation, your periods, is the winter time. If you experience painful periods, don’t panic, your body is just asking for a little help. Maybe you need to stop and feel utterly present to your experience, you may find that it is enough for the pain to ease or become bearable. This time is very special whatever your day holds, find a way to move slowly. To carve out some time to rest and do nothing! I know we are very busy in our society, I urge you to give it a go, maybe a homeopathic dose? 1% of your time? Homeopathy is a great support too and I have come up with a few remedies for you.
