If you need help with hormones or periods, you’re in the right place. This site explores women’s health topics such as immune treatment for endometriosis and the 4 types of PCOS. You’ll also find information about natural treatments including iodine for breast pain, natural progesterone for heavy periods, and some of the best natural anti-androgen supplements for facial hair and acne.

You can read an essay about body literacy and learn about alternatives to hormonal birth control including the pros and cons of the copper IUD (Paragard).

Taurine: 5 Benefits for Women’s Health

Taurine for women's health

Taurine is one of my favorite supplements for perimenopause, menopause, sleep, mood, insulin resistance, and migraine prevention.

Taurine is a sulfur-containing amino acid that is not used to build proteins but instead acts as a free amino acid to support the healthy functioning of the immune and nervous systems. Taurine is so important that it makes up 0.1% of total body weight.

Why Perimenopause Is Not About Aging

Perimenopause or “second puberty” is the two to ten years before the final period. It’s different from menopause, which is the life phase that begins one year after the final period. Symptoms, if they occur at all, occur mostly during perimenopause and are temporary.

The normal age for the final period is anywhere from 45 to 55 so the normal age for perimenopause is up to ten years before that—as young as 35. In other words, if you were born before 1984, you could be in perimenopause and yet still be relatively young. That’s why perimenopause is not about aging but is instead about an important (and unavoidable) recalibration of your hormonal system.
