Quiz time! Can you name your four menstrual phases? Do you know when estrogen rises or how it impacts your brain? Do you know why you might tend to eat more during the second half of your cycle as opposed to the first? Did you know you can sync your diet, lifestyle, and/or workouts to your menstrual cycle?
To be honest, a few years ago I would have completely failed this “quiz.” I knew close to nothing about my hormones or the impact they had on my overall health. Most individuals who menstruate don’t!
For me, this all changed when I came across the practice of cycle syncing. Have you ever heard of this term?
Cycle syncing was a game changer for me. Not only did it help me understand the hormonal changes that were taking place in my body each week throughout my menstrual cycle but it also gave me insight on how to use the constant ebbing and flowing of my hormones to my advantage, both on a personal and professional level.
How? Well, here to walk us through the ins and outs of cycle syncing — how it works, what the benefits are, where to start, and more!–is the woman behind the hormone cycle syncing movement herself, Gabrielle Lichterman.
Gabrielle is a longtime women’s health journalist who pioneered the cycle-syncing and hormone awareness movement in 2005 with her groundbreaking book, 28 Days: What Your Cycle Reveals About Your Moods, Health & Potential. She’s also the creator of the popular website Hormonology, an online educational platform she founded, as a way to share hormone cycle education around the globe.
