On this page you’ll find links to all the resources we have to offer for heavy periods.
30% of menstruators experience heavy periods, that’s roughly 5 million people!
There aren’t many options available to those that experience this other than using a contraceptive which stops the menstrual cycle altogether. But heavy periods are a symptom of a bigger problem. When they aren’t being caused by an illness it’s usually the result of our busy, no-time-to-eat, lifestyles where rushing around like a headless chicken is valued more than taking life slow.
Usually you don’t need hormonal treatment to balance this problem but rather look towards stress management and good eating instead.
Did you know that heavy periods can cause anemia, and that in turn, makes you more likely to have heavy periods? This self-perpetuating cycle means that taking an iron supplement is incredibly important for you, throughout the month.

Fibroids are an extremely common issue. There are reports of up to 25 percent of women in their reproductive years having fibroids, but in reality, there are far more whose symptoms are undetectable or haven’t been reported.
Fibroids can cause issues such as painful, heavy periods or fertility issues. They are seen as being fed by an excess of strong oestrogen. We see them as relating to a much more complex array of emotional and lifestyle influences that can be shifted to support the presentation of this often debilitating symptomology.
If you're feeling like you've got a foreign body living inside you, taking over your periods, bowels and bladder, this is the video for you. A lot of Fibroids go unnoticed as they aren't big enough to cause a problem. But when it starts to feel like it's taking over and the only option you're given is surgery, or waiting for menopause, you might start to wonder; surely there's something else I can do? In this vlog I give you some herbal and dietary suggestions.
Most will think that balancing blood sugar is just something diabetics do. Few realise that it's crucial for regulating female hormones as well.
When our blood sugar dramatically rises and drops throughout the day we release insulin to try and compensate. But if we do this for a long time gradually we build up a tolerance to the insulin and this throws other hormones like oestrogen out of whack. This happens in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). A woman with PCOS may experience male pattern hair growth (hirsutism), irregular periods and infertility. They often struggle to maintain a healthy weight too.
