Women’s Health, Wisdom, and. . . WINE! is a weekly conversation with practitioners, providers, patients, and healers about complex reproductive medicine and women’s health challenges, the value of an integrative approach to these challenges, many of the women’s health topics you’re already thinking about but uncomfortable talking about, and my personal favorite. . . WINE!
Natural rhythms guide all that we do – our very existence. Our breath and heartbeat are constant reminders of life’s pulsing rhythm that moves within and around us. Our lives are orchestrated or guided by the rising and setting of the sun and the moon, the changes in temperature from day to night and from season to season, the tidal ebb and flow, and by our own internal rhythm. These rhythms guide our daily activity.
Injustice often disrupts these natural rhythms, and subsequently, emotions, an overlooked cause of disease (and dis-ease), lead us farther and farther away from optimal health and wellness. As such, many people live their lives cut off from the natural rhythms and cycles of nature and of their own bodies. They no longer get up with the sun, and they may stay up till the wee hours of the morning. Their pace of life is such that it is inconsequential whether it is night or day or winter or summer. The phases of the moon go unnoticed. Even the stages of their own life go unnoticed. This plays havoc with their body clocks. Their erratic stressful lives are in a state of arrhythmia.
For people with arrhythmia of life, their bodies and lives are out of sync with the natural world and the natural rhythms that govern all life. For many people, they only know life arrhythmia. For them, this state appears normal. They have not experienced living in tune with the natural rhythms.
Traditionally all cultures have lived in harmony with life's natural rhythms and have included celebrations to reinforce their occurrence. Most of these are now lost to our current consumeristic, success oriented lives. More than ever before we need to be part of the slow movement and live in tune with the natural rhythms and cycles that have guided our evolution for the past 2 billion years.
Reconnect to life. Return to your true nature. Return to your own natural rhythm.
