In her book ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ (‚ÄúWomen‚Äôs Blood‚ÄĚ), Manuela talks about learn¬≠ing to love one‚Äôs own men¬≠strual cycle. But how can you do that? By get¬≠ting to know your own cycle, find¬≠ing out what your body needs and how you can actively help it. In her cycle guide, Manuela talks about the bio¬≠log¬≠i¬≠cal and ener¬≠getic processes as well as his¬≠tor¬≠i¬≠cal and cul¬≠tural back¬≠ground, tips and tricks for self-care, the most impor¬≠tant reme¬≠dies for nat¬≠ural treat¬≠ment, and taboos and facts about men¬≠strual prod¬≠ucts. In our inter¬≠view, she now explains to us the best heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort for a healthy and nat¬≠ural cycle.

Can you please intro­duce your­self briefly?

My name is Manuela and I work with peo¬≠ple as a Hara Shi¬≠atsu prac¬≠ti¬≠tioner, psy¬≠chol¬≠o¬≠gist and herbal expert. My main focus is on women‚Äôs dis¬≠com¬≠fort, child¬≠bear¬≠ing and psy¬≠cho¬≠so¬≠matic issues, and I also host work¬≠shops on pri¬≠mor¬≠dial fem¬≠i¬≠nine power, herbal med¬≠i¬≠cine and bodywork.

How did you come up with the idea for the book?

I found it fright¬≠en¬≠ing that we men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tors are always sug¬≠gested only painkillers and hor¬≠mones as a ther¬≠apy for men¬≠strual cramps, ‚Äď as if there is noth¬≠ing else. But there are many effec¬≠tive alter¬≠na¬≠tive heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for men¬≠strual cramps! My heart‚Äôs desire was and is to reach as many men¬≠stru¬≠at¬≠ing peo¬≠ple as pos¬≠si¬≠ble to show them what they can do them¬≠selves for their cycle health. They should trust in their own body again and find self-empow¬≠er¬≠ment for a healthy men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion. This is how the idea for ‚ÄúWomen‚Äôs Blood‚ÄĚ was born.

What was your jour¬≠ney like from the idea to the fin¬≠ished book?

Phew, what a ques¬≠tion! ūüėČ It was a long, work-inten¬≠sive, but also very edu¬≠ca¬≠tional and ful¬≠fill¬≠ing process total¬≠ing about four years. I have read just about every book on men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion and women‚Äôs health since the 1970s that I could get my hands on. I have ques¬≠tioned my clients and friends even more inten¬≠sively than usual about their expe¬≠ri¬≠ences and atti¬≠tudes towards lunar bleed¬≠ing, and I have sur¬≠ren¬≠dered even more con¬≠sciously to my own cycle phases in order to really savor them and to gain deeper access to my pri¬≠mal femininity.

In addi¬≠tion, it was also a gath¬≠er¬≠ing of the most suc¬≠cess¬≠ful herbal recipes from my prac¬≠tice and try¬≠ing out more tech¬≠niques. It was like a small ini¬≠ti¬≠a¬≠tion into ‚Äúwom¬≠an¬≠hood‚ÄĚ, ‚Äď also like a preg¬≠nancy. At times I felt that if I didn‚Äôt bring this book into the world, I would burst or my body would get sick. It sim¬≠ply had to be that this heart project could be real¬≠ized. And so I quickly found the right pub¬≠lisher for ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ in Herbig.

What was your most beau¬≠ti¬≠ful moment dur¬≠ing the project ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ?

As I said, the work itself was very ful¬≠fill¬≠ing. But the best thing is always to be able to directly expe¬≠ri¬≠ence the suc¬≠cess with your own clients. That is, when men¬≠strual cramps decrease or dis¬≠ap¬≠pear, men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion finally flows again after a year, and the client finally becomes preg¬≠nant nat¬≠u¬≠rally after a long time of wait¬≠ing and hoping.

In rela¬≠tion to ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ in par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar, there were actu¬≠ally three moments:

  1. when I had fin¬≠ished the rough manuscript,
  2. when the first offers from pub¬≠lish¬≠ers came in and
  3. as soon as I finally held ‚Äúmy baby‚ÄĚ in my hands.

What made you take a closer look at your cycli¬≠cal rhythm?

Again and again I suf¬≠fered from cycle dis¬≠com¬≠forts myself ‚Äď cramps, PMS, strong ups and downs in my mood. For a long time I prob¬≠a¬≠bly also wanted to prove to myself and the world that I was ‚Äúa bet¬≠ter man‚ÄĚ. As a result, I uncon¬≠sciously ignored or sup¬≠pressed many aspects of my fem¬≠i¬≠nin¬≠ity and cycli¬≠cal¬≠ity. As I turned to body¬≠work and natur¬≠opa¬≠thy, I real¬≠ized more and more that the sup¬≠pos¬≠edly lin¬≠ear world we live in is actu¬≠ally an illu¬≠sion, because every¬≠thing in nature is cycli¬≠cal. We are sub¬≠ject to a day-night, sea¬≠sonal rhythm, lunar cycle, etc., and pre¬≠cisely also the men¬≠strual cycle. I wanted to live my true nature, and so I just couldn‚Äôt get around my very own body rhythm. ūüėČ

How do heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort work? 

The great­est advan­tages of the heal­ing and home reme­dies for cycle dis­com­fort pre­sented in the book are prob­a­bly the following:

  1. They can heal the cause of the dis¬≠com¬≠fort and are not just pure symp¬≠tom fight¬≠ers like painkillers or arti¬≠fi¬≠cial hor¬≠mone doses. Thus, they help us to regain a healthy and nat¬≠ural cycle
  2. They have no (neg¬≠a¬≠tive) side effects, because they reg¬≠u¬≠late very gen¬≠tly, but no less effec¬≠tively. The word ‚Äúneg¬≠a¬≠tive‚ÄĚ is in brack¬≠ets because there can be many pos¬≠i¬≠tive side effects.

Not only does cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort dis¬≠ap¬≠pear, but we feel our¬≠selves more clearly, get to know our own body bet¬≠ter and learn to lis¬≠ten to its sig¬≠nals. We become more in tune with the nat¬≠ural waves of our cycle, life often becomes more har¬≠mo¬≠nious and our envi¬≠ron¬≠ment often mag¬≠i¬≠cally changes its behav¬≠ior. But this is a very nat¬≠ural and log¬≠i¬≠cal process, because the more we live in har¬≠mony with our true nature, the more pos¬≠i¬≠tively our envi¬≠ron¬≠ment reacts to us. 

What nat¬≠ural reme¬≠dies and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort can you rec¬≠om¬≠mend? Why?

This is prob¬≠a¬≠bly the hard¬≠est ques¬≠tion to answer because there are so many! I love the sup¬≠port from the plant king¬≠dom, for exam¬≠ple, mug¬≠wort, yarrow, lady‚Äôs man¬≠tle, goose cinque¬≠foil and shepherd‚Äôs purse are very dear helpers and allies to me. How¬≠ever, for the herbs to work well, they need to be well matched to the par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar ail¬≠ment and the par¬≠tic¬≠u¬≠lar per¬≠son. In ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ you will find sev¬≠eral recipes that have proven them¬≠selves in prac¬≠tice, but also on my blog I always present recipes, heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠forts and med¬≠i¬≠c¬≠i¬≠nal herbs. In case of cramps before or dur¬≠ing the period, daily gin¬≠ger com¬≠presses often help won¬≠ders. You should start one week before your period. How to use them exactly, you can find here.

Do you have any tips on how we can come into har¬≠mony with our own cycle?

First and fore¬≠most, we should rec¬≠on¬≠cile our¬≠selves with our men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion and accept our cycle. A good way to become aware of our own cycle waves in the first place is self-obser¬≠va¬≠tion. A cycle diary is a good com¬≠pan¬≠ion here. Sim¬≠ply observe and note if and how we feel in the dif¬≠fer¬≠ent phases, what we like to do, etc. Fur¬≠ther meth¬≠ods as well as a descrip¬≠tion of the ener¬≠get¬≠ics of the cycle phases I present in ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ.

What other prac¬≠tices, apart from heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort, help? 

Besides heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort, there are many great meth¬≠ods from the field of body¬≠work (Hara Shi¬≠atsu, yoga, breath¬≠ing exer¬≠cises, Qi Gong, etc.). Nutri¬≠tion, exer¬≠cise and lifestyle obvi¬≠ously play a role, but med¬≠i¬≠ta¬≠tions, body jour¬≠neys and imag¬≠i¬≠na¬≠tion work are also very help¬≠ful. In addi¬≠tion, we should hon¬≠estly ask our¬≠selves if we allow our¬≠selves enough time for rest, sleep and dreaming.

Our cre¬≠ativ¬≠ity, our cre¬≠ative poten¬≠tial as well as a ful¬≠filled sex¬≠u¬≠al¬≠ity nat¬≠u¬≠rally also want to be prac¬≠ticed and our men¬≠strual magic can be rekin¬≠dled through large as well as small rit¬≠u¬≠als and cer¬≠e¬≠monies. In the first place, how¬≠ever, is usu¬≠ally some¬≠thing very sim¬≠ple, which is not infre¬≠quently very dif¬≠fi¬≠cult to imple¬≠ment. Namely, a pos¬≠i¬≠tive atti¬≠tude towards one‚Äôs own men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion as well as one‚Äôs own body or rec¬≠on¬≠cil¬≠i¬≠a¬≠tion with both. I present many more meth¬≠ods and heal¬≠ing and home reme¬≠dies for cycle dis¬≠com¬≠fort in ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ, so that you can pick out exactly the tech¬≠niques that suit you best. 

Is there any¬≠thing else you would like to tell or say?

As a lit¬≠tle goodie, you‚Äôll find an addi¬≠tional chap¬≠ter on the spirit of men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion through the cen¬≠turies exclu¬≠sively on my blog or on the Face¬≠book page of ‚ÄúFrauen¬≠blut‚ÄĚ. I look for¬≠ward to your ‚ÄúLike‚ÄĚ, wish you a healthy men¬≠stru¬≠a¬≠tion and much joy in dis¬≠cov¬≠er¬≠ing your very own rhythm!
