So many women and girls suffer from menstrual pain, cycle irregularity, ovulation pain, emotional discomfort and other symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Conventional medicine offers pain medication or hormonal medications (e.g. the Pill) which many women are keen to avoid using long-term. Natural medicine can help, especially Homoeopathy, but most people don’t realise that the disruption to the hormonal cycle can in fact be caused by structural imbalance of the pelvis. This can result from:
- Hips shifting slightly from their natural positions with forward or backward rotation,
- reduced range of movement caused by tension in pelvic muscles,
- lack of movement or exercise, too much sitting down
- chronic stress that contracts the psoas muscle, pelvic floor and other muscle tissues in the pelvis.
These can cause tension around the ovaries and hormone production can be affected, resulting in a wide variety of unpleasant symptoms labelled as PMS, in addition to low back, hip and pelvic pain.
Ortho-Bionomy offers a gentle but very effective approach to all these symptoms.
