15 Apr Bridging The Gap Between Science & Women’s Wisdom
What do you believe about your health?
Do you frantically fit everything into one day, thinking that the more you do the better you are? Do you put those emotional outbursts, physical injuries and PMS symptoms on the to-do list?
How’s that working out for you?
I’d like to offer you another choice, one that supports female physiology, that mitigates stress allowing your hormones the freedom to do their job so you can enjoy your body instead of fight it.
Are you inspired by your health, and is it easy to maintain knowing you are emotionally able to put YOU first when life throws that curveball?
We know the masculine approach to women’s health doesn’t fit our bodies because they don’t consider our hormones and the evolutionary phases we go through; menstruation, perimenopause and menopause. Each phase requires a change of tact in regard to movement, fuel and environment. Simple changes with life-changing effects.
During our menstruating years, we want to put our weight training in the follicular/ovulation phase of our cycle for strength gains, and endurance and restoration in our luteal phase to assist in adaptation (if you’re an athlete focusing on weight training, again this requires a different approach to support that goal).
Perimenopause and menopausal woman need to reduce the stress response and maintain that lean muscle mass that begins to deteriorate at this time. This is where shorter, sharper, harder sessions with the right protein intake are crucial.
And the 24 hr cycle (circadian rhythm which is the masculine cycle) isn’t the only cycle we encompass. We also move from the infradian rhythm which is our monthly cycle. We’ve been squeezing a month into 1 day, no wonder we’re bloody knackered!
But the above is all well and good if you have a clear perspective of how you see yourself. Our emotional response will always dictate the way we look after ourselves.
You need a strong foundation to put new lifestyle changes in place, otherwise, it becomes another fad that falls away proving you’re not good enough
The way you see yourself is the way you treat yourself. Understanding unmet needs, your hormonal/emotional responses through your menstrual cycle (if you have one) is what will make your health a sustainable adventure of joy and growth.
Revitalising your health in collaboration with your hormones and the evolutionary phase you are in will transform the way you not only communicate with your body, but with life.
And you can with the right support.
