In my work of supporting women to reconnect with their bodies and to build a trusting mutually supportive mind-body relationship I often encourage women to listen to their internal wisdom. It is very empowering to be able to trust your body for guidance when it comes to food, movement, and major decisions.
Most women, especially those living with PCOS or those experiencing severe PMS are familiar with an unpleasant feeling of having a bloated belly. It feels like you have a balloon in your stomach that’s weighing you down, makes you feel heavy, and not sexy at all! This usually happens right at the time when you need to get dressed to go out for dinner or were planning a fun night on the town with your girlfriends. Bloating doesn’t help with the romantic part of your life either. What is more of a “mood killer” than feeling like you swallowed a basketball?
