Maisie Hill ↠ Period Power Doc

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 our So Much Woo 😔Save your money and look for a book about the menstrual cycle that sticks to facts and evidence There are portions of this book like the first section which provide a genuinely helpful insight into how our cycles work from a biological perspective I did learn a lot about my bodyBut and it’s a big one beyond that there is so much woo and uackery that I almost couldn’t finish the book I held out in case there were any nuggets of useful information there weren’tBeyond the pseudoscientific “treatments” I also find it unhelpful to suggest restricting one’s life and work according to a largely arbitrary set of “seasons” Who in the real world can reorganise all public speaking to land on a handful of days in the month Or to restrict creativity socialising introspection developing plans etc etc according to someone else’s imposed timetable I really do find it odd in 2019 to be restricting women to be slaves to the monthly calendar Feels like a real step away from eualityAnd if you don’t believe me about the cycle seasons being largely arbitrary try the section for those not menstruating transpost menopausal etc which explains how you can just map the seasons into the phases of the moon How about this gem “There hasn’t been much research on cod liver oil packs but it’s been used by women for over 100 years and is proven to work” proven without researchIf it sounds like a duck 🦆

Mobi ☆ Period Power ↠ Maisie Hill

Period PowerSelves in a state of physical and emotional discomfort and fatigue wanting nothing than to collapse on the sofa in front of Netflix But what if instead of just trying to plan for our dark days women were euipped with ways to improve them What if our desire to improve ourselves could be combined with our need to know just what our womb and ovaries are getting up to every month Not to mention how to take advantage of the natural superpowers that sit in each phase of our cycle so that we can plan our month to perform at our best Maisie Hill is uniuely placed as an acupuncturist women’s health practitioner and doula to explain just how we c I initially rated this 3 stars but have now downgraded it to 2 after I ruminated on it some over the weekend This was mainly due to a level of unease that Period Power left me with as well as a feeling that I didn't really take as much away from it as I'd hopedI don't know if this was mainly because I'd already fairly recently read Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler which was a phenomenally helpful and insightful text almost like the bible of fertility really but I didn't really find much in Maisie Hill's book that I didn't already know at least from a biological perspective The first few chapters are fairly comprehensive in terms of the female reproductive system and understanding how your body works and Hill writes in a way that makes the topic very accessible So there are definitely some positives to this book especially if you haven't read much on the subject before and are fairly new to itHowever the majority of this book was mainly dominated by what I've seen a couple of other reviewers refer to as 'woo' and I'd have to agree with them on this While I think it's fun and fairly illustrative to define the stages of the menstrual cycle as 'seasons' with certain positives and negatives to be found in each stage it didn't really feel like a lot of the content was based on solid scientific fact so conjecture and straight up opinion That's not to say that there's nothing in going on your own experience and that of others and anecdotal evidence can sometimes help especially when it comes to managing symptoms but I think that relying on this solely would be a mistake especially when dealing with important reproductive issues I also found the idea that you could pretty much tailor your life including external commitments such as work and parenthood around your cycle to be fairly naive and not possible for those who maybe come from a less than privileged background Maybe it's ideal to not take on any commitments at your job during a certain season for example but the fact of the matter is that when deadlines come looming you'll be working towards them whether you feel like it or not The reality of life going on around you is inescapableAnother part of this book that made me feel uncomfortable was the vilifying of the pill Now don't get me wrong Hill re iterates again and again that she feels that if you decide the pill is the absolute best option for you then that is fine and that she respects people's opinions about what is best for them in terms of contraception But I can't help but feel that this is just to cover her back because again and again she points out the negative aspects of using hormonal contraception I do agree that there are a lot of negative side effects of using the pill especially long term and I'm not going to say her points are wholly incorrect I'm not ualified to do so But I did feel as though my personal decisions in the past were being attacked and I felt depressed about the future in a way that I didn't feel reading Toni Weschler's book which tackles many similar topics and besides I felt like I was in a hopeless place like I had done irreparable harm to myself and I don't think any book based on helping women with reproductivefertility issues should make you feel this way It should empower you if anythingI also think that this book is definitely not one that should be listened to on audiobook in retrospect Maisie Hill does a good job of narrating don't get me wrong but it's incredibly hard to remember where you have heard certain snippets of information that you maybe do want to remember and act upon Unless you have a pen and paper to hand it's going to be ultimately pointless and the information will have been lost on youOverall I think this is an alright book I think its heart is definitely in the right place and I do believe that Maisie Hill has helped a lot of women to overcome fertility and cycle related issues But this book wasn't for me and it just made me glad that I had read Weschler's book first
