What is a Normal Period?
Learn how to reduce your pain using an anti-inflammatory diet
with Dian Shepperson-Mills, Nutritional Therapist

Many women experience period cramps, mild pains requiring perhaps the odd paracetamol. Other women have severe, disabling period pains, along with abdominal bloating/distention and bowel problems, which require strong painkillers. We will look at how the body controls pain and which nutrients are involved in pain reduction, and which foods can help to prevent PMS symptoms like breast tenderness, irritability and tiredness. We will talk about the many causes of period pains, fibroids, adenomyosis and endometriosis. Dian will discuss which foods help the body to reduce inflammation and control uterine cramps. A healthy reproductive hormone system depends upon the way the liver and digestive system work. Dian will help you to discover ways to improve your health and decrease the period pains.

Your Fertility Depends Upon Your Food
How Endometriosis & What You Choose to Eat Affect Your Fertility
with Dian Shepperson-Mills, Nutritional Therapist

Nowadays 1:6 couples struggle with infertility; it can be heartbreaking for those with endometriosis, PCOS, low sperm count and unexplained infertility. Our Edwardian great-grandmothers gave birth to ten to eighteen babies! What was their secret to being so fertile? Birth control, fast food and pesticides were unheard of in those days. People ate a traditional seasonal nutrient rich diet, lives were less manic, and women were fit from walking and housework. The ovaries, testes and uterus depend upon nutrients to make new cells and tissues, and getting those vital nutrients into the developing ova, sperm, blastocyst, embryo is crucial. Research shows that if the mother is eating a low protein diet from day 1 to day 20 after conception the babies heart cannot develop adequately and the child develops heart disease in later life. Having a healthy baby that grows into a healthy adult is important. Both mother and father need to be healthy from at least 3 months before conception. We will look at research on nutrition, endometriosis and fertility to investigate what you can do to improve your reproductive health.
