learn the simple energy-healing techniques to balance your hormones
Traditionally, the menstrual cycle was honored, as it was believed to be an expression of the feminine association with the cycle of the moon. The menstrual period was regarded as a physical and emotional cleanse, as it allowed the body to release impurities and accumulated emotions. Indian women intuitively rested to assist with the detoxification and rejuvenation.
Today, we tend to ignore our body’s desire to:
• Slow down to recharge our energies.
• Eat natural foods to nourish our energies.
• Connect with nature to replenish our energies.
• Express our deepest feelings to free our energies.
• Care for ourselves holistically to revitalize our energies.
As a result, we experience an array of monthly physical, mental and emotional symptoms.
Ancient energy healing practices empower our energies and return us to our natural state of balance.
If you suffer from one or more of these symptoms, then apply the following techniques two times a day for six weeks. The degree of pain on each area directly relates to the severity of the imbalance.
