I'm a traditional Chinese Medicine doctor, so I know firsthand that balancing hormones is no easy feat. There are cycles to consider and the intricate dance they ride each month. And of course, all along the way there are bumps in the road, or forks in the road, which is part of the deal in modern-day womanhood. It seems that we have two choices: deciding between the pill to "fix" the problem or riding it out and, through trial and error, look for what is really going on. Either way, it's not always an easy path and there is no one-size-fits-all approach.
There's been a theme running through my circles over the past few years—self-love, and I've been exploring it deeply. We all have different values, different priorities, and various feelings and emotions that propel us. And it's true that we all perceive things differently. This love isn't necessarily about smooching up with your lover; it's about self-worth and showing up each day.
