Publisher's Summary

Period Power is a profound but practical blueprint for aligning daily life with the menstrual cycle, to give all menstruators a no-nonsense explanation of what the hell happens to us every month and how we can use each phase to its full advantage.

Ninety per cent of people who have periods experience symptoms of PMS, a syndrome which features a wide range of signs and symptoms, and yet there's an enduring lack of understanding about what it actually is and a disappointingly meagre range of treatment options.

So many of us have a Jekyll and Hyde experience of our lives; we feel on top of the world, capable, confident and sexy for part of each month, then find ourselves in a state of physical and emotional discomfort and fatigue, wanting nothing more than to collapse on the sofa in front of Netflix.

But what if instead of just trying to plan for our dark days, we were equipped with ways to improve them? What if our desire to improve ourselves could be combined with our need to know just what our womb and ovaries are getting up to every month?

Not to mention how to take advantage of the natural superpowers that sit in each phase of our cycle so that we can plan our month to perform at our best.

Maisie Hill is uniquely placed, as an acupuncturist, women's health practitioner and doula, to explain just how we can achieve this as well as focusing on particular milestones that require an altered approach, such as coming off hormonal birth control, infertility, pregnancy, motherhood and the perimenopausal years.

Using what Hill calls 'The Cycle Strategy' - a secret weapon when it comes to improving our relationships, career and health - Hill will give us all the information we need to make sense of our cycles as well as accessible and practical suggestions through which we can improve our physical symptoms and stop berating ourselves because of the way we evolve through each menstrual month.

enlightening

I found this book very enlightening. It has definitely helped put into perspective why I feel anxious or tired at different times in my cycle and why I have good times. While I don't agree with everything said in the book as some is unproven (e.g. seed cycling), for the most part it has been well worth the listen.

Fantastic resource!

I recommend this book to everyone I know. It has changed my relationship with my body in a positive way. Knowledge is power, and Maisie provides resources, tools and information for working with and getting to know your menstrual cycle. I return to it again and again for comfort and wisdom.

I wish I had read this earlier

I’m in my 30’s and while I thought I knew mostly everything there was about my cycle, I realise how little I truly knew about my hormones and their interaction with my body and mind throughout the month. Highly recommend this book!
