Heavy periods are exhausting and it is one of the main signs that our hormones are out of balance.
Here is how you can tell if you are having heavy periods:
Why are my periods so heavy?
What can you do to ease your periods?
The best approach is to get your hormones tested. If your progesterone is low then taking the right herbs or using a natural progesterone cream with a multivitamin will be the easiest way to fix the problem. If your estrogens are high then you need to detox, detox and then detox some more!
You can reduce excess estrogen by reducing environment exposure to estrogens ie don’t use plastics, decrease the amount of drugs (especially hormones), eat organic produce and meats and eggs.
Ground flax seeds (2 to 3 tbsp per day) can also help you eliminate any unwanted estrogen.
