You have heard me say it before... the most frequently asked question I get asked as a Wholistic Women's Health Advocate is: "Why didn't anyone tell me about naturally navigating my fertility and menstrual cycles sooner?"
Most recently I have observed mothers asking about what type of birth control others would recommend for their teen daughters. In mom's groups, I see hundreds of responses of the different birth control recommendations and then I respond with a comment about teaching their daughters about the natural cycles and seeking NaPro Technology for their challenges. Usually, my comment is overlooked in the sea of Birth control pill types, IUD suggestions, and stories for how "life-changing" birth control has been for their daughters in taking away their pain and "lightening their periods." my heart is in a puddle of tears as I know the "life-changing effects" these young women will have the longer they stay on birth control.
Last night was different!
A mom of a 13-year-old asked for help for her daughter's heavy periods and painful cramps. I commented: "Please don’t put her on birth control. I work with young girls and help them get access to NaPro Technology. I have a period tip sheet of how to deal with this that I can offer you. PM me"
I received a flood of PMs and requests for help! It is amazing to see that such a large number of women and moms are being told that the Birth Control Pill is the only help for their "period problems!"
What is more alarming is that moms believe that this "band-aide" approach is the best help for their daughters
Was this your story? Were you given Birth Control Pills as a young woman? Were you told this was the only fix for your period problems?
My client load is full of women who are dealing with the ill effects of Birth Control Pill use. Nutritional deficiencies, Hormonal imbalances, Anxiety, Depression, Infertility, and Miscarriage. Some have never known life with a natural menstrual cycle because they have had a synthetic hormone running the show for the majority of her life!
Most alarming still is that women have accepted this lie for now more than 60 years!!
For 60 years women have been told that Birth Control would give them the freedom that they desire and make everything better for them. From that point on education about our natural cycles and the very important fact that it takes 3-5 years for young girls to observe "normal cycles" have been brushed under the rug.
Women have accepted the Lie that to be a woman is to be: " in pain, dealing with PMS, Period problems and being hormonal" It some women have come to the point of saying "I hate being a woman and I hope I never have a daughter!"
But I want to scream from the mountain tops... There is a BETTER WAY!!
What if we reject the Lie!?
How would our work be different if:
We began to speak truth to women of all ages that they have been created with a good body with a unique natural cycle!
What if we told women that charting and navigating the beautiful natural cycles of fertility are what it is to be a woman?
What if it was normal for mothers to teach their daughters about all the beautiful reasons that they love being a woman because they have all been able to Understand, Embrace and Love their Natural Cycles?
What if mothers became excited to pass this life-giving information down to their daughters?
What if they knew that there are well-trained quality medical providers who are willing to listen to the menstrual challenges and work cooperatively with their bodies to find REAL SOLUTIONS to the underlying causes of any discomfort?
THIS IS NOT JUST A DREAM!
This is the true reality for ALL of our
