Your period does not have to be painful.
Berrion tells us, "Periods are 100 percent normal and pain shouldn't be." She says a narrative exists that a woman should expect to be in pain during her period, something which is not accurate.
The period educator has her patients undergo a holistic health assessment and then possible additional testing like a complete thyroid panel or hormone panel and then she determines how a woman can align her nutrition and lifestyle habits to her cycle and synch it all together.
Berrion encourages women to master the basics of their menstrual cycle and focus on nourishing the body and getting things like complex carbohydrates, magnesium, iron, and zinc -- all of which are important during a cycle.
"Your cravings are trying to tell you something," she explains, noting that often instead of the craving meaning you want chocolate or ice cream, it may be a sign that your body needs calcium or vitamin D.
Berrion goes on to explain if a woman is able to track the various stage of her period better and adjust her lifestyle accordingly, this can help to ease things like the pain associated with the menstrual cycle.
A tip from the period educator on how to track what stage of the period you are in: check your panties for cervical fluid. She says if you find a fluid with the consistency of "runny egg whites," this probably means you are ovulating.
