I am a single 27 year old who has had shocking periods since I began to menstruate at the age of 11. On the first day of my period, the pain level was intense 10/10, the bleeding was so heavy and very dark. I would have to stay home from work or go home from work as the pain and bleeding would be so difficult to handle. My cycle was irregular as well. I also used to have yearly gynaecological check-up and was put on the pill which made no difference to my situation. I started to have regular Mayan Abdominal massages with Anna.  After the first month the period pain level went down to a 2/10. I would consistently do my Self Care massage and Castor Oil packs to break down the internal congestion.  Anna told me it could take up to 6 months to clear my situation up, well she was right! I don’t have any pain or discomfort now, my cycle is regulated, and for the first time in my life I now have fresh blood. I actually look forward to my period now even though my mother think I am nuts. I do the self-care daily and have continued to massage myself with castor oil.
