I often tell people that PMS is a sign that something is wrong.  It may be common but it is not normal.  I wrote a post on PMS a few years ago from the point of view of nutritional help, but essential oils have been a wonderful resource in my tool box for PMS for many years.  Even better is that there is now some research on these oils.

1.  Geranium Essential Oil Pelargonium graveolens / Pelargonium asperum

This oil is from the leaves of the geranium plant and has a sweet floral sme...

Ever have days when you bleed through everything and it feels like you period is never going to stop? Heavy periods, or menorrhoea is no joke.  I have experienced it personally as a teen (I even wore a tampon and a night pad and still bled through within half an hour), was put on various forms of the pill, mini pill, the IUD, the implant.  You name it I was on it.  But nothing ever worked and I was made to feel like it was my fault that my periods didn’t know how to respond, like I was the probl...

One question I'm regularly asked by my private clients is "my period is 22 days/56 days what can I do?".  You can pretty much insert any number of days into that question, it still won't change my response which is: are you ovulating and when?

Ovulation is pretty awesome.  Not only does it enable us to get pregnant (if we want to) but it helps with so many other important things, stabilising our mood after the drop in oestrogen, nourishing our thyroid, bone health, heart health and breast he...

Your period has been AWOL for a while and you really just feel that you want a period but it isn't coming.  You know you don't have an underlying reason for this such as pregnancy, post partum, menopause, the pill, medications or illness.  So what is a girl to do?

There are a number of reasons you may not be having periods, so it is hard to right a catch all blog post, however, there are some thing that you can start to get your body in a better position (and may just bring your period back)...

It can take quite a while for your cycle to return at all after coming off the pill and it can also take a while for your cycle to resemble something in the normal healthy range too. However, if it's been a year (or you'd like to give your body a helping hand), then this blog is for you.

One of the things the pill does is increase something called Sex Hormone Binding Globulin, let's call it SHBG, which does exactly what it says on the tin; binds up excess sex hormones so they no longer have effec...

I often write about what a period should look like, but some people ask me, what are the warning signs that something isn't right about your period (I don't like categorising these into good and bad periods).  I thought this was a brilliant question so here are some signs that your period needs a bit of TLC.

1.  Length of Period

Your period should be 3-7 days of flow.  Not including spotting, although we will get into that later on.  Period too short?  You may not be producing adequate hormones....

Do you suffer from unknown vaginal irritation that doesn’t go away, despite antibiotics and other thrush treatments?

Does it get worse around your bleed?  Do you suffer from endometriosis, heavy bleeds or period pain?

You may have tried abdominal massage, changing your diet, yoga, castor oil packs but not noticed much of a difference.  It may surprise you that your feminine hygiene products could be to blame.

Irritation

I recently found out that 75% of UK Gynaecologists surveyed, thought that unexpl...

Hi, I am Rachel and you are most welcome to my online home.

 

I am a woman's reproductive health specialist, who after suffering terribly with various issues with my period, found natural solutions to heal myself.

 

I now help other women who are suffering period problems, PMS and fertility issues who often feel they have no where else to turn.

 

In my clinic, based in Guildford I treat my clients using Fertility Massage Therapy, massage for digestive issues, Reflexology, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Nutrition, Natural Family Planning and Meditation depending on what the client needs.

 

I also offer online Skype sessions for one to one clients teaching them self massage of the abdomen, natural family planning, meditations, EFT and putting together a health plan for them to follow with recommendations on appropriate exercise, nutrition regimes and other self care and life style changes.

 

I also offer online tuition for Benkung Belly Binding for post partum women (or a partner, friend or companion who would like learn it for them).
