One of the areas I find I do the most coaching and education around is hormone health, particularly the menstrual cycle. Many women and people who menstruate arrive in my clinic room with nary a clue as to which hormones are playing a role in their brutal PMS or debilitating menstrual cramps, let alone which of these symptoms are worth assessing and treating.
If you were like me (and this is confirmed by many) your hormone education consisted of 1-2 classes around 6-9th grade that basically reviewed how to deal with your period and how not to get pregnant. There were snickers from everyone, feelings of embarrassment or shame, wondering if you were normal or weird (sadly, I always settled on weird).
