Five Steps (+ One Golden Key) to a Pain-free Period!
~> Busting a Big Myth: Period Pain is not Normal.
One of the biggest lies told to women is that period pain is normal. The truth is, it doesn’t have to be.
Take Sarah. [Name was changed to preserve client confidentiality.]
Sarah is a patient of mine at AcuFit Thirroul
When Sarah came to me, she was your average superhero mum happy juggling life with two kids save for one BIG problem.
Every month, for 72 hours, Sarah had difficulty breathing and lay in agony on the floor. She felt like she was giving birth all over again. This, folks, was just an average period.
I asked her to rate the pain out of ten, and she gave it 9/10. Imagine…
Everyone’s pain scale is different, but this reminded me of that experiment on YouTube that went viral. Two fathers had electric pads hooked up to their bellies that passed an electric charge in increasing volts to simulate the pain of childbirth at 10/10.
Lo and behold, these brave, gallant men didn’t make it past 4/10…
Naturally, I assumed she went to the hospital in times like this. Wrong.
“I don’t want to be a burden,” she told me. “There are other people who need help more.”
~>I Think My Jaw Dropped.
I have no idea where this belief came from that women had to tough it out each month, BUT I KNOW IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!
The real kicker was when I asked how long she had been dealing with this kind of pain.
“30 years.” she replied.
We broke down the time each month that she spent in pain. It added up to ¼ of her life. A QUARTER OF HER LIFE. Poof, gone.
Years dedicated to not being able to go swimming, living her life and being active. Years dedicated to being bed bound and missing family and friend’s birthdays, events and holidays, and forgoing career opportunities.
~> At that point, I made her a Deal.
I told her that I’d do everything I could to help relieve her pain, treat the underlying problem and help her get her time back.
All she had to do was show up consistently for treatment + action my game changing tips.
No more, no less.
I can happily say she did just that. Sarah is now on the road to reclaiming her life back.
What Sarah learned for herself is powerful. That there are always powerful, natural solutions out there, and in my clinical experience, Acupuncture is 1#.
It is the Golden Key to unlocking a Pain-free life.
Before we met, the only thing Sarah could turn to, the only thing she knew, was Panadol. And when the pain was really bad, she was prescribed more and more Panadol.
But here’s the BIG problem with painkillers, it doesn’t solve the problem. It only suppresses pain. And the key thing to remember is that pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong or out of balance, whether its bloating, distension, headaches, pain and/or severe pain.
Luckily, at Acu-Fit Acupuncture, we understand pain and better, we know how to beat it.
