I woke up yesterday with my bleed right on time, to the day. The same 29 day cycle as the months before.
Natural bloating, slight cramps, a little bit of fatigue, and a strong pull to go inward.
Hello, inner winter
After struggling with hormonal imbalances from birth control & amenorrhea (period loss) from years of disordered eating, overtraining, & adrenal fatigue…
having a period, let alone, an 𝙚𝙖𝙨𝙮, predictable, fairly symptom-free one, wasn’t something I initially believed in.
But over the years, as I’ve come more & more home to my body & my being,
I’ve learned to 𝗯𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲 𝗺𝘆 𝘀𝘆𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗺 & 𝗵𝗮𝗿𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝗽𝗼𝘄𝗲𝗿 𝗼𝗳 𝗺𝘆 𝗶𝗻𝗻𝗲𝗿 𝘀𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗼𝗻𝘀 to work WITH my hormones in a super advantageous way.
My cycle used to be something I ignored & didn’t care much about.
It was…. 𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙤𝙮𝙞𝙣𝙜.
Know what I mean?
Now, it’s something that’s become an integral part to my:
𝗯𝗲𝗶𝗻𝗴-𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀, 𝗯𝘂𝘀𝗶𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀, & 𝗯𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘀-𝗻𝗲𝘀𝘀.
It’s 𝙖𝙣𝙘𝙞𝙚𝙣𝙩 𝙬𝙞𝙨𝙙𝙤𝙢 knocking at my door, everyday, not just when I bleed.
Listening to this inner wisdom has shifted the way I view not only my body, but the seasons of my life, my relationships, my business & my work.
It’s also 𝗮𝗺𝗽𝗹𝗶𝗳𝗶𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗵𝗲 𝘀𝘂𝗰𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝘀 I’ve had.
It wasn’t a quick fix or a quick pill to get ‘here’ with my body.
It was years of ruptures & repairs, unlearning & listening, listening & relearning, trial & experimentation, self love & body trust.
My 5 phase system, 𝐆𝐨𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐬𝐬 𝐑𝐞𝐜𝐥𝐚𝐦𝐚𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧, has taken hundreds of women from hormone imbalance to body freedom. Check out testimonials on my IGTV, @trppodcast, & ‘client love’ page on juliannevaccaro.com
