Your Period Problems
Having period problems can really suck. Not knowing when it's going to come, how painful or heavy it'll be, or even if you'll be emotionally balanced enough to make it through the day. You probably plan your life around your period hoping it doesn't fall on social occasions and holidays. Feeling like your womb is out to get you.
Even if you've been told you've got something like Endometriosis, PCOS or Fibroids the options from the doctor might leave you feeling pretty underwhelmed.
But it doesn't have to be like that. With the help of stress management, a natural diet and medicinal herbs you can start to find hormonal balance again. I will give you the tools you need to live free from fear of your periods.
We all know that true hormonal balance can't be achieved in one appointment. That's why our treatment plans are a 14 week long all-inclusive package. It's designed to take all the confusion out of finding natural answers to your period problems. If you're unsure this is for you, be sure to apply for a free chat first.
Very light/non-existent periods
What to Expect
In week 1 we will go through your entire health history to understand your story, and set your aims for treatment. You will start herbal medicine immediately.
In week 2 we will analyse your diet and create a personalised plan for meals in the upcoming weeks. Each appointment includes a review of your herbal remedies as well.
In week 3 we will look at how you spend your time and what effect this has on your nervous system. I will give you lifestyle tips for balancing out your stress.
In week 4 we explain how you got where you're at and how to nip it in the bud in the future.
After having taken herbal medicine for 6 weeks now this is our first chance to really see what effect it's had on your periods.
In week 10 we introduce more steps to improving your diet and lifestyle if needed and make sure you're able to put my recommendations into practice. We'll also review your herbs.
This is your final appointment. In this appointment we will review if you should stop taking your herbs now or if you need some more time with them. Some patients need ongoing care which is discussed during this appointment and paid for in an adhoc basis after that. But many patients are able to sign off with all the tools they need to carry on in good health.
How much is having happy periods worth to you? When I asked women this question over 90% answered that they thought it was worth more than £1000 to them. That's why I'm happy to be able to offer this package for so much less than that. Your Treatment Package includes the cost of your health coaching and herbal remedies. You’ll only pay extra if you cancel without giving 24hrs notice or you have to extend the 14-week period for some reason. Payments are non-refundable.

During this session with one of our specialists you’ll discuss what your aims are, what you've tried in the past and where you're getting stuck. They’ll let you know if we think the package suits your needs and if we'll meet your aims within its set time frame. If we don't think it’s right for you we'll recommend a colleague or other self-help actions you can take first. Whatever the result you'll definitely be heading in the right direction.
