If you don’t take the initiative to learn what the heck is actually going on in your body, you’ll be left at the mercy of other’s information.
And while you’d hope, and assume, that everyone has your best interest in mind, I hate to break it to you — they don’t.
This isn’t me saying that we’re all horrible, no good, rotten jerks. No. We’re mostly good.
But there are plenty of people who are out for themselves [sometimes subconsciously] and in the medical world that usually means what brings in the most money.
And surprise, surprise, knowing what’s going on in your body isn’t a big money maker for them.
Charting your own cycle requires you to buy a thermometer — for just a couple of bucks — and that’s is. Didn’t hear me? Let me repeat that again. You need a thermometer and a piece of paper.
Now, if you’re in thermometer sales, more women charting is “Woo-Hoo!” awesome for you.
But, if you’re in the business of hormonal birth control it’s bad news bears.
More and more women are catching on though. They’re realizing, “Hey! This here, this is MY body, and I want to understand it better.”
Through the rise of popularity of things such as yoga, these ladies are getting more in touch with their inner selves and with their bodies.
When you start learning about your body, and what is actually going on [and I’m not talking about that half-ass crap you learned in 6th grade health class] magical things happen. Beautiful things happen.
There are so many “A-ha!” moments when it all starts to click and make sense. You start noticing things, consistencies, and when you have the information to why things happen, a certain sort of harmony with your body emerges.
No more fighting it and silently yelling to yourself “Why are you doing this to me???” Instead you go, “Oh hey, I feel you there and I understand your purpose. Thank you!”
Sounds silly, but I swear it’s the truth!
