Mmm…This post pushes me more and more into sharing Kundalini Yoga teachings and holistic health to support womens health and well-being….Bask in Kundalini Mantras, Kriya and engage in hydrotherapy… Rub down my curvy thighs and my new voluptuous body with ‘Chakra Amour Whipped Body Souffle Butter’ infused with essential oils to heal and balance my Chakras.
However before I get back on my yoga mat, meditate, pray inhale, exhale and get bendy…..I am going to detox, release!
Our physical and psychological process through life. Our ‘Moon Cycles’ send us hips and curves, after the pimples. Our hips and curves then transform our wombs into transporters of life. Our bodies wax and wane through this transition deciding to be a ‘womb of wisdom’, or a ‘womb of life’.
Oh this metamorphism, we go into a dark cocoon and transform into a butterfly…To approach the wisdom years can be a mind and body battle of scattered thoughts and exhaustion.
Waxing and waning…Or screaming and shouting….Crying and sweating….
An holistic approach? Or medication?
Menopause! The word alone makes me frown and scowl.
Because I am over…..
Why to be honest for the past 7 years it’s been thrown at me like a bad Frisbee. You know the one, your playing in the park and you finally get the hang of it…its floating towards you, then boom! Some how it ends up chopping you right on the bridge of your nose. Your eyes start to water and your all confused such a little thing could cause such agony.
Over the past 18 months, I have been through a transition from eating a high vegetable diet, with dairy products and a dash of fish here and there. Because you see whilst in ‘Cobra’ pose one day I felt discomfort, which on investigation a lump. ‘You have a fibroid’ said the GP. Much feedback say my new friend does not cause discomfort and pain. However you my naughty friend decided to cause chaos, mayhem, a ruff road of confusion, muddles, dismay, mis-diagnosis.
The parting of the ‘Red Sea’ is an understatement ‘A rainy night in Georgia’ not even close. You made me feel like I was a ‘Menstruating calendar girl’! I thought long and hard to campaign to have Tampons, Tampax and Sanitary towels for free! Because you made me buy investment shares in Bridgette Jones panties!!!
Through months and months you the ‘Fibroid’ have become my naughty at times nasty friend. Which my dear consultant and GP say we must still remain friends! You play havoc in my body and mind and give me more curves than I care to have. I now have moods so heavy, that my very own ‘Mood’ swing cannot swing back and forth as the back and forth caused the chain on my very own ‘Mood’ swing to snap!
So last year I did my research you my ‘Fibroid’ naughty friend. Like ‘Cheese’ and ‘Mayo’ on the side to keep you breathing inside! Not looking back to feed my ‘Fibroid’ friend.
May this year I joined a group and excluded dairy products for 22 days. I am now officially a vegan!
Bless my yogi now stiff hips
I gave up cheese!!!
Once committed to a bunch of complete strangers, my willpower stepped up and I moved through the challenge without a single slip or slide back down the cheesy, chilli slip road of my oh so often cheeky order on the side!
A plant based diet is the best way forward…to end this relationship with a naughty friend named ‘Fibroid’…Which now is oh your ‘Peri-menopausal’ MMmm so now I have a friend called ‘Pier’…. On this womanly journey I seem to be collecting friends along the way.
Although now my headaches and head sweats are the results of ‘Cluster headaches’.
The GP says just to let you know ‘Pier’ is gone! You now have a brand new day brand new journey It’s called Menopause!…You my dear are well and truly now in a relationship with ‘Menopausal’… My thoughts for you is Menopausal..gone!
Because as one beautiful Empress once said ‘There is no ‘MAN AH PAUSE’ Yah!!!!
