"Women have been lied to over and over again. It's common to assume that period symptoms are normal because everybody has them. But imagine a life where you're no longer planning around your monthly cycle. You're not falling apart, your energy is consistent, and your mood is good and stable."
Most women expect a dreadful Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS) every month. Nausea, cramping, and migraines are just a few symptoms that female adolescents expect, and there's no other way to deal but through pain relievers and birth control pills.
Suffering from dramatic periods as an adolescent, she is unwilling to accept conventional medicine as the final solution. Yet, without a logical explanation from her doctor, she refused to believe this was her fate.
Our guest, Dr. Annie Savage, is a naturopathic physician trained in female hormones, functional endocrinology, and bio-identical hormone therapy. For her, symptom-free periods are possible as long as the four pillars of hormone health are in place. And through her profession and TikTok presence, she continues to educate and bust myths about women's health and monthly cycles.
