Bring Your Missing Period Back Naturally
With Alisa Vitti
You’re going along in your life, and then you realize that you may have missed your period.
You know you’re not pregnant, but now everything’s off schedule.
Were you supposed to get it 2 weeks ago? A month ago? Will you be getting the next one sooner?
Where are you in your cycle now?
Or maybe you were on the Pill to treat PCOS or other symptoms, and after going off the Pill, your period still hasn’t returned.
Perhaps you had a baby, but you still haven’t gotten your period back after several months.
Or maybe the holiday stress, sugar and carb-overload has messed with your hormones and cause your period to go MIA.
What does this mean for your hormones and health overall?
When your endocrine system is balanced, each hormone supports the others through each week of your monthly cycle. It’s like having a lineup of dominos and gently tapping the first one to have it topple the next and cascade the whole line neatly down.
But if you get your period every other month, and you’re telling yourself it’s ok (or secretly happy that you’re not getting it and having to deal with the hassle of a period), you’re setting yourself up for serious health issues.
The truth is that hormone imbalance is wreaking havoc on your health. Whether you have other hormonal symptoms right away or not, imbalances age you prematurely and increase your risk for osteoporosis, cancer, and infertility. It also can mess with your weight, skin, mood and sex drive.
If your period is erratic and you're between the ages of 20 and 45, you need to take action to make sure you get your period back so your hormones are all lining up the way they should.
The good news is that you can restore your period naturally, once you understand what could be in the way.
In this session, I am going to help you bring your period back naturally. I’ll break down for you the common causes of missing or skipped periods before they continue to frustrate you or lead to bigger health issues.
Here’s what we’ll cover:
The 5 missing/skipped period types - and how to know which one you have
What your missing period reveals about the state of your hormones and what that means for your health
What hormones you need to balance to get your period back
How the Pill might be affecting you
What you need to STOP doing immediately that’s delaying your period
What foods and supplements bring your period back naturally
It took me years of research, alternative therapies, and experimentation to discover what really works to get regular periods. You won’t hear anything about these therapies from your doctor.
I’ll share the natural remedies I personally used to go from having just two periods per year to having a regular, predictable cycle each and every month!
Reserve My Spot
When I first discovered Flo Living, I had a lot of stress and I wasn’t sleeping a lot. I was on this tired and wired cycle. My health in mainstream medical terms was good – I had low blood pressure, I worked out, I ate healthily – but I had not had a period in three years since coming off the NuvaRing. I always had clear skin, and about midday through that three year period, my face started breaking out in the areas that indicate hormonal health.
It took six months from the time I started MonthlyFLO to when I had my first period. A lot of how the program helped me during that time was about reducing my stress level and yin balancing. I learned deep breathing exercises. I made a rule about not eating my meals while at the computer. I loved the hot water pack on my adrenals. I enjoyed taking half an hour a day to just do nothing or do whatever I wanted.
Because I didn’t have a period, I followed the moon phases with my eating plan. My period finally came back on the new moon, which was awesome! I’m expecting my next on the next new moon. My acne cleared up during that time too.
Before Flo Living, I never paid attention to my body. I bought tampons, and that was the extent of it. I never had very extreme periods before so I didn’t think about it. Now I am really paying a lot more attention. I’m in the luteal phase right now and I feel a little less sociable. I know I can take a few minutes of silence for myself. I am careful not to eat sugar. It’s really cool to recognize what’s going on inside.
I have been searching for ways to completely get my period back on a regular cycle since getting off birth control pills the summer of 2012. After quitting the pill, I didn’t get my period for 7 months, then 4 months, then 7 months again. My periods were very slow to start and there was brown spotting for at least 5-7 days before the red blood actually came.
After I started MonthlyFLO, it took only about one month or two to get my period back to arriving every 28 days. I now experience less days of brown before the red blood, and less cramping and more balanced energy during my menstrual phase. I feel more emotions of love and happiness that I want to express.
The biggest accomplish I have made in my health as a result of the protocol is learning how to regulate my blood sugar. Most days, I ate balanced meals, but when I became stressed and busy, I turned to sweets & chocolate for energy. Now, when I am stressed, I go to foods with more protein, I sit and breathe while I eat, and I keep a grateful attitude in my mind while I eat, trusting that the meal choices that I made are going to sustain me and nourish me.
I have found a new trust in food and I am seeing the results. This empowers me and makes me feel connected to my body in knowing I can take care and support it.
"Nearly a decade of disordered eating and neglect had resulted in amenorrhea that lasted for over five years. Many doctors said my cycle would not return without birth control pills to “jump-start” my flow.
I could barely hear my intuition at that point, but I followed its whisper and signed up for the hormonal sync system instead of taking the pills. I figured it was worth a try!
The most surprising and inspiring part of the FLO journey was the homework of adding pleasure back to my life – I had been taking myself so seriously and my life had become an overwhelming project.
My cycle returned after five years of being absent! I have now been back in the flow for 8 months in a row!
FLO Living helped uncover who I am so I can speak my truth and live in a way that honors my natural rhythms! I love that this program honors women and puts them in control of their health. Every woman deserves this gift of knowledge, empowerment, and community."
When I came to FLO Living struggling with PCOS, I hadn’t had a full period in at least 6 months, I was miserably working 12 hours a day as an attorney, and I had been unintentionally celibate for the better part of a year.
I can attest to tangible results. In working with FLO Living, my cycle normalized to a great extent and I began getting full periods more often. I spent less time at the office and more time having fun, including dating. I also learned how to better feed my body and feel good in my body.
At FLO Living, I began the journey toward healing my relationship with my femininity and my feminine energy. I started to incorporate and appreciate those parts of me that I had denigrated in the past. And FLO Living gave me a community of women who supported me in my healing journey.
Now I work only part time as an attorney and I’m spending the rest of my time doing things that I really love, writing, performing improv, and spending time with my boyfriend and friends. I can’t imagine this journey without the support of FLO Living.
