Periods, Feminine Products, and Cramps
We talk about the natural, sustainable feminine products made from 100% unbleached cotton, reusable feminine cups, and menstrual-friendly underwear. We also discuss the etiology of severe cramping and long, heavy periods and natural ways to deal with these unpleasant symptoms.

We discuss how bras can constrict our natural movement, why it’s important for breast health, and how to transition to a more healthful bra. We also discuss how chest wall, rib cage, and shoulder girdle strength and range of motion is equally important to this transitioning process.
