Women’s hormone cycles are not just a cyclical pain; they are our integral link to all the other cycles in life. Our cycles are so much more than hormones “raging” through our bodies. Your hormone cycle earns you the right to be a healer, a spiritualist, and a wise woman, respected by all.

Leslie Carol Botha: Until we can have open dialogue about menstruation – we will always be victims of our own bodies. We speak about reproductive health – but we never discuss menstrual health – and in doing so we perpetrate the shame dialogue.
Leslie Carol Botha: How sad that a fake industry has taken away women’s sense of beauty. First the patriarchy stripped us of our history and identity, then told us to mask and deny our rhythmic and sacred menstrual cycle – convinced us to consume foods and that are bad for us, used the media to send out negative messages out ourselves – and set up a false image of what women should look like.
