summary Period Power Maisie Hill á 6 review Period Power free read ✓ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Period Power is a profound but practical blueprint for aligning daily life with the menstrual cycle to give women a no nonsense explanation of what the hell happens to their hormones every month and how they can use each phase to its full advantageNinety per cent of women 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 meager range of treatment optionsSo 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 ou. I make no secret of the fact that I hate my periods I hated them when they started and twenty years later I hate them even However this is the first book I ve ever read or indeed come across on the subject of menstruation I saw a copy in a bookshop and immediately became hopeful that it could tell me what I ve been doing wrong all these years The blurb makes some pretty grand promises about taking control of your menstrual cycle and by nature I m inclined to put great faith in reading books as a means of life improvement It was therefore almost inevitable that I d feel at least slightly let down by the reality of the book I don t regret reading it however it hasn t had the effect on me that the author clearly intended and I m doubtful of whether it ll help me manage my periods any better The content is approximately half medical details of how menstrual cycles work and half somewhat dubious wellness stuff The former half is intended to demystify a normal bodily function to make it seem like an amazing and cool thing I appreciated Hill s inclusive language and recognition of ineualities Unfortunately learning about periods just reinforced my opinion that genitalia and everything to do with human reproduction are totally disgusting More complicated than I d previously known yes but still entirely gross There is also a chapter detailing all the unpleasant illnesses associated with periods which mainly frightened and confused me I m an anxious hypochondriac so the lists of symptoms and causes were alarming I m lucky that my periods aren t too bad they make me feel ill for around a week to a greater or lesser degree but are rarely incapacitating Unlike friends of mine I ve yet to faint or vomit in the street thanks to a period From Period Power I now have a slightly better idea of which hormones to blame for the symptoms I do generally get though three types of pain stomach upsets loss of appetite clumsiness exhaustion etcThe wellness half of the book was dubious The menstrual cycle is charted as the four seasons with winter as the actual period Hill ascribes enormous significance to knowing where in your cycle you are at any given moment I keep track of when my period is going to turn up but am not sure how much this helps My lecturing timetable has zero respect for whether I m bleeding from the cunt and feeling like shit Thus I wasn t receptive to Hill s suggestion not to treat period pain with painkillers and instead to see if you can experience the pain as a trippy natural high I ve been trapped on a train with period pain and nothing to treat it for hours and that is not an experience I care to repeat If I want to have a natural high via pain I ll get another tattoo That said I take Hill s point that by treating the pain we allow ourselves to keep going when our bodies actually need rest I get through my periods by taking a painkiller as soon as they start to head off the pain This doesn t help with any of the other symptoms of course Ideally I d just lie on the sofa with a hot water bottle but under capitalism this often isn t an option It was naive of me to hope that there was some magic secret to happy and painless periods which I just hadn t known but it seems there isn t Hill s advice is depressingly similar to that in every self help book and wellness blog eat better exercise but not too much try a long complicated list of supplements and if in doubt see a naturopath To be fair Hill also encourages readers to take serious issues to a GP and advocate for treatment from an informed standpoint which is laudable However I know from experience that GPs have little to offer for period pain I ve been prescribed painkillers and told to eat complex carbs every few hours While there might be people out there capable of eating complex carbs every couple of hours I am not one of them and never will be Given the lack of help from conventional medicine this area is cluttered with wellness claims that are hard to evaluate I should not have been surprised but was disappointed to find so many suggestions of dietary exclusions in Period Power At the very start of the Self care chapter is this which practically made me shriek The autoimmune paleo protocol is what I recommend following In the first phase the foods that most commonly cause problems are eliminated including grains dairy sugar alcohol nuts seeds and nightshade vegetables aubergine tomato bell peppers and white potatoes To be thorough they should be excluded for at least three weeks It is no exaggeration to say that if I excluded all those foods for three weeks I d starve to death I m a vegetarian so the only things I eat that aren t on that list are fruit eggs and I guess spinach Hill does include on the next page a caution that If you have a history of disordered eating then I don t recommend doing an elimination diet but still Holy shit Suggestions to exclude gluten dairy and sugar recur elsewhere notably as treatments for period pain Yet Hill also comments that many of her clientspatients turn out to have menstrual problems related to undereating or lacking protein in their diets What the hell are we supposed to eat It s all very overwhelming and depressing I have in the past tried giving up wheat and dairy which made my life much difficult and did not make me feel any better The idea of eating masses of special seeds fills me with horror Maybe I should read Just Eat It How intuitive eating can help you get your shit together around food again for reassurance In a similar vein Hill recommends exercise which is fair enough while also cautioning against over exercise So how are we supposed to know what the correct amount of exercise is If the answer is to listen to your body what if you have anxiety that causes your body to constantly mislead youThere is some advice from the book that I will try to follow Drink my morning coffee with breakfast not before it Eat protein Try and work out whether cheese is a protein Stop microwaving plastic containers as apparently this releases toxins Go to bed earlier Get B vitamins somehow Not sure whether the cycle tracking format suggested would work for me but I could try itAs this list suggests Period Power left me feeling rather like the main character of The New Me filled with vague intentions towards self improvement that are highly unlikely to result in meaningful change due to wider issues While it was refreshing to read a book about periods and Hill makes some good points about sexism and the environmental cost of

this statement Even in ostensibly progressive societies it s all too common for men to dismiss women s ideas opinions or anger simply on the basis of their ability to bleed every month The idea behind this is that periods somehow make you volatile dangerous or outright crazyBut the fact that your hormones fluctuate every month doesn t make you any less of a level headed or competent person Changes

physical changes you experience throughout can feel uite drastic The different stages of your menstrual cycle are like the seasons of the year each brings with it a different set of strengths and challenges Your period during which you withdraw from the world and rest is like winter After that comes spring when your body and mind begin anew Around ovulation you re in summer when you feel light and energetic Finally before your period you move into fall to slow down and get ready for another winterYour menstrual cycle and the length and experience of each season are highly sensitive to

allows you to sweat out excess estrogen which can be useful if you suspect that you have estrogen dominance a common condition in perimenopause Sleep is another big factor in hormonal health Just one night of bad sleep can mess with your blood sugar and raise levels of the stress hormone cortisol which in turn suppresses the production of estrogen and progesterone To prevent this aim for 7 to 9 hours of sleep per nightLess obviously you might want to consider your form of contraception Hormonal contraceptives like the pill work via synthetic hormones that suppress your natural hormonal cycle and prevent ovulation In recent years hormonal contraceptives have been linked to significant health issues from depression to inflammatory bowel disease to pain while having sex And the pill s negative effects extend well beyond its use One study found that long term pill use permanently decreased the thickness of the uterus lining an important factor in your ability to conceive Although a lot of health practitioners fail to inform their patients about the negative aspects of hormonal contraception these are worth considering when deciding on a contraceptive Your menstrual cycle shouldn t be a burden to get rid of through hormonal contraceptives but a source of joy and power If you can work on regulating your cycles through lifestyle changes and with the help of a trusted healthcare
