I cannot personally relate to perimenopause or menopause…yet. However, I do have many friends and clients who tell me about the not so pleasantries that can come along with this new chapter of our lives.
This got me thinking.
We categorize so many things as normal over our lifetimes, don’t we? For example, I lived with an irregular menstrual cycle all through middle and high school. My parents told me this was normal because of how active I was as a kid and how hard I was on it as a hard core athlete.
I don’t blame my parents as that’s what they were told. But was this normal? No.
Just like headaches, achy joints, severe fatigue, bloating, and gas are not “normal.”
Because of the society we live in and the busy lives we live, we push things off. We place duct tape over our check engine lights, and proceed as normal. Cause who has time to waste on all this stuff anyhow, right? Ain’t got time for this!
So, the irregular cycles, headaches, pains, fatigue, and things become a normal part of our lives. We adopt them as our new normal.
The scary part of this is that if we don’t correct course, we may forget how good we could actually feel! Not to mention these “warning signs” given to us by our bodies as a “hey you, pay attention, something is not right here” only compound and become bigger problems later.
My acne as a kid was a reflection of my compromised gut microbiome. My gut microbiome then compounded into a PCOS, Endometriosis, autoimmune issue. It wasn’t until I corrected the cause of these symptoms that they went away.
How many times do we wait until something major happens before doing something out it? I know I did.
Preventative measures are the best way to preserve our health and wellness.
