I hadn't had my period for over 15 months due to hormonal imbalances and I'd never taken the pill so I became quite worried. I went to doctors and endocrinologists which got me nowhere. I've been vegan for roughly a month now on approximately 40% raw and 40% cooked veggies and my period just started. Coincidence...possibly not?
Has anyone else ever experienced something similar?
I used to have intermittent periods, like missing one every third month or so. And then in 2008, I had only one in a 9-month span. I had my first experiment with raw foods, eating a good amount of fruit, but not LOW fat, and about 15% cooked. I got my period back after 2 weeks and have never missed since.
Similarly- Coincidence? Possibly not. :)
also, you should take a look at Josh Fossgreen's discussion that he started
Thank you for your help, that forum link's really interesting :) I'm so glad that my hormonal imbalances may be finally balancing out, just makes me even more determined to eat those fruits and veggies :) I'm glad that this lifestyles been working for you too!
You may eventually experience what many HCRV women experience ... your period completely disappearing again! Except for a good reason this time. You would still be ovulating, and you would still have your period, except it would only be one or two drops and your uterine lining would be so non-toxic that your body would just reabsorb it, as happens to many mammals in the wild.
