ใ€‹ใ€‹THE TRUTH ABOUT YOUR CONTRACEPTIVE...๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€โš•๏ธ
.
If you are on hormonal birth control believing it helps to "regulate" your cycle, "fix" your skin issues, or "sort" your painful periods then you ought to know that the pill isn't actually doing any of these things. Truth is, it was only ever designed to prevent a pregnancy... not fix any deeper endocrine imbalances. โš–
.
I don't know who all needs to hear this right now, but the bleed you get with the pill is not a real period! Its known as a breakthrough bleed and is actually completely unnecessary according to the FSRH (Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare UK) as the 7 days off the pill were really only ever intended to mimic a natural cycle. Yup, you read that right...๐Ÿคฏ
.
So what's the big deal? Well the big deal is that the pill only ever suppresses your cycle and doesn't actually address the underlying cause of your period problems. So when you stop it, your old symptoms are likely to come back again...not fun...especially if you are trying to conceive and are back where you started 10-15yrs ago with PCOS, PMDD or endometriosis symptoms.๐Ÿฉธ
.
The good news is there are alteratives to going on the pill if you want to get to the bottom of your period woes. Restoring your monthly ovulation is part of that journey.ย  Getting the right tests to get a diagnosis is often a good place to start for many. As is nourishing your cells (no kale smoothies involved!), moving your body (but not too much) and regulating your stress, blood sugars and sleep are also key. Be sure to follow me for more information!

ใ€‹ใ€‹UNDERFUELLING ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ
.
Are you hitting the gym several times a week & calorie counting but find you are experiencing hairloss, sugar cravings, irregular periods, painful periods, mega PMS, insomnia, skin issues or struggling to lose weight? Yup, you aren't alone...
.
Truth is your HIIT, Bootcamp or Crossfit routine may be doing you more harm than good, especially if you are cutting down on your calories to below 1500 a day.
.
Maybe you are reading this thinking I'm talking nonsense. You feel great. What the heck would I know? Well, chances are you are less than 6 months into your routine & feeling on top of the world ๐ŸŒŽ
.
I see many clients who are near killing themselves to look 'skinny' with many also longing for a set of abs! Hate to be the bearer of bad news ladies, but if you drop to below 18-22% body fat you'll likely stop ovulating. And whether you want to be pregnant or not, ovulating is a key pillarstone of good health!
.
Once you drop below a BMI of 18.5 and gain that extra muscle, you throw off your cycle completely. Hello crazy hormonal and fertility issues! Bet your PT didn't tell you that part?
.
And even if your BMI is higher, the stress of underfuelling will place your body into constant fight or flight mode. Your cortisol levels will rise and this can lead to sugar cravings, poor sleep, skin and gut issues. Your thyroid health will also likely take a hit - feeling cold or moody lately? And then if your body is in constant stress you'll stop ovulating, no matter what your weight, as the body senses its simply not a good time to have a baby - food is scarce and you're beyond stressed out anyway!๐Ÿ™‡โ€โ™€๏ธ
.
So if you want to feel great and look great, you need to stop body shaming your beautiful body & learn to fuel yourself properly - most likely by eating MORE and excersing LESS. Easier said than done for many women who long to be skinny, but you owe it to yourself to go gentle with your body and stop hating on it!
.
Health is not about how much you sweat or starve to get skinny! And beauty is certainly not defined by your weight. If you'd like to know more about maintaining a healthy bodyweight for sustained vitality, drop me a comment /PM! ๐Ÿ‘‹

ใ€‹ใ€‹HYDRATE๐Ÿ’ฆ
.
Did you know the lower back is the first place affected by dehydration? Every cell needs water and yet most of us are chronically dehydrated! This can cause sorts of issues from back pain, skin issues and headaches to constipation.
.
Water, milk and juice typically all count towards your ideal 6-8 glasses a day, but tea, coffee, fizzy drinks and most herbal teas are direutic so don't count towards your daily hydration goals.
.
If you struggle drinking water or find it too cold at this time of year, try drinking water at room temperature or a little warmer and add ginger, mint, cucumber or rosemary to improve the taste. A water filter is a good investment as it can significantly improve the taste of tap water which often has a strong metallic taste to it (as well as a chlorine smell - not good!๐Ÿ™ˆ).
.
How many glasses of water have you had today? ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™€๏ธ
