Session Info

Menstrual pain is so common that most of us sadly assume it is normal. It is not! Pain is a sign from our body that something is amiss, especially when it is chronic. Often, dysfunction in the digestive system contributes to systemic inflammation, which in turn can lead to the development period pain.

Join Dr. Emma Lee in discussing:

  • How to evaluate if imbalances in gut health are contributing to painful periods
  • What dietary modifications, lifestyle habits, and supplements are most effective for helping alleviate painful periods by way of healing the gut
