Years ago, I learned that cayenne pepper can stop a deep cut from bleeding. A few years ago, I listened to Dr Jennifer Daniels tell a story of a patient who was headed to the ER because her menstrual bleeding was so heavy. She told her patient to tale 2 teaspoons of cayenne pepper and it quickly stopped her heavy bleeding. (some women can literally bleed to death with their menstruation). I started doing more reading on cayenne pepper (CP)after this story. I learned CP strengthens arteries and veins ( so great for women with adenomyosis), breaks up clots ( a major cause of painful cramping), warms blood and improves circulation and digestion( so great for hormone balancing, migraines/ headaches, bloating, cold uterus, cold feet), and the fact that it stops heavy bleeding should help anyone with fibroids, endometriosis and adenomyosis. Warning: if you take this in an empty stomach, you will feel the burn in 10 minutes. It’s best taken with a meal, not before or after (I’ve tried all 3 ways). I also recommend you take it on a daily basis to get the maximum benefit. #painfulperiods #adenomyosis #endometriosis #fibroids #heavybleeding #heavyperiods #PMS #migraines #headaches #colduterus #cayennepepper #cayennepepperforperiods cayennepepperhealthbenefits
In my training with Dr Arvigo, in 2008, she taught us that it’s not just about aligning the uterus. It’s important to align the pelvis as well. The training included a great naprapathic technique to correct anterior or posterior tilts in the pelvis. I tend to have one hip in posterior and the other in anterior, and so do most of my clients. It’s a major contributor to back pain, scoliosis and decreases energy flow. I use sacral blocks on the massage table and can give clients to do this on their own. In the pic with green sacral blocks the hips look more even than they do in the pic without. It feels like a really relaxing stretch in the hips especially the sacrum. ❤️
You may have a tilted and/ or prolapsed uterus if, you find yourself wondering why people like sex so much.
What can cause your uterus to tilt or prolapse?
Good Posture Cannot be Forced or Faked
If you do force it, chances are your muscles will tire and or you will be in more pain.
Truly Improving your posture is a two part process that includes core strength and alignment of your entire body: feet, knees, hips, rib cage, neck, head, shoulders and arm.
Good posture keeps your muscles, joints and organs working optimally without straining them. It creates a youthful, leaner more attractive appearance and makes you taller, stronger and healthier.
Strength and flexibility training, when done properly, improve posture, and although yoga and Pilates do specifically train posture, doing these exercises in large groups doesn’t give you specific corrections your individual body needs.
I help clients improve their posture with both massage and exercise. I can do detailed massage work and find imbalances that need to be corrected. Overly tense muscles will be relaxed and made more flexible, which will relieve chronic pain.
I can spend the last 5 minutes of a massage session giving you exercise homework to strengthen opposing weak areas, and this will create lasting results. You can also choose to do a 30 minute exercise session. These exercises are relaxing and as you improve, you can include the concepts into more strenuous workouts.
Postpartum Fitness & Weightloss Tips
In the postpartum period (2 years), using heavy lifting or high impact exercise to lose weight and get fit is a mistake, These types of exercise can contribute to pelvic organ prolapse and muscle imbalances that can lead to incontinence (leaky pee) and pelvic floor dysfunctions that can cause sex to be less enjoyable or painful. A few minutes of daily restorative exercise to reawaken your core, is ideal in early postpartum. “Core” exercises include kegels, pelvic movements, and gentle exercises that improve abdominals and overall posture. After a few weeks of doing these exercises, you can take short walks while focusing on engaging your core muscles. Good posture makes bodies look taller, leaner, and tummies don’t pooch as much. A lesser known fact is that proper pelvic alignment plays a huge role in holding your pelvic organs up. Along with Arvigo Therapy, strengthening your core, will help your pelvic floor regain control over your bladder and will improve your sex life considerably.
Healthy food choices creates weight loss more efficiently than exercise does, and it benefits baby’s health if you are nursing.
