Healing PMDD holistically in body, mind and spirit
PMDD is a very common disorder experienced affecting lives often in very debilitating ways, and yet very little is known about what it actually is and how to effectively, safely, and properly treat the underlying root cause (which is so often the case when it comes to women’s health!).
My guest today Jes Hagan lived with PMDD for almost two decades and tried absolutely every treatment offered to her, losing so much in the meantime. Today though, she experiences incredibly improved menstrual cycles and huge reduction in her symptoms and now helps other people to overcome their PMDD holistically, using her signature process which helped her so much.
What You’ll Learn
What PMDD is and is not, and what the differences between PMS and PMDD are.
Jes’s story and life with PMDD and how she nearly lost it all to PMDD
The treatment options she was given by health practitioners, what worked and what didn’t
How she discovered her own path to healing PMDD and what she now offers to people wanting to heal their PMDD
How trauma is linked to PMDD
We share our respective experiences of the luteal phase, which is when PMDD strikes, so you can see the difference between PMDD and non-PMDD experiences.
and how Jes suggests you start your healing journey.
This is an episode I invite you to listen to if you have PMDD, suspect you might do but aren’t entirely sure, or don’t have this but through learning you can be a better support to others around you. Knowledge is power!

cyclic rituals, sacred self-care and an oracle card reading for your cycle
In this episode of Wild Flow Podcast I sat down for a delicious conversation with my friend Clare Foale, a writer, an artist, a teacher, a space holder, a tapping practitioner, a questioner and an ocean-lover. Clare and I met originally in cycle facilitator training with Mitle Southey, and shared visions and journeys whilst we sat next to each other. I loved her earrings and beautifully warm wisdom and laugh.
Since then Clare has trained with me to become a Certified First Moon Circle Facilitator, and Clare has claimed her creativity by, amongst other things, dreaming and birthing her magickal oracle card deck called Spacious, which is all about honouring our desires, needs, and sacred selves.
What menstrual / cycle awareness means to both of us,
How we can use incredibly simple reflective questions to support us through the more challenging as well as expansive moments of our menstrual cycles, and daily life as women, mothers, space holders,
Why Clare does not like the term self-care and her own personal practice that she finds infinitely more nourishing instead,
She looks back at the last decade of her life from turning 30 to turning 40, and shares the love notes of wisdom she shares with her younger self,
And Clare offers us an oracle card reading from her new card deck Spacious to hold space for ourselves through the four phases of our next menstrual cycle. This is a beautiful menstrual cycle awareness ritual!

period power: why you should care about your period
period power: why you should care about your period – wild flow podcast with Charlotte Pointeaux. This week on Wild Flow Podcast…
Understanding exactly what is going on within our bodies as cyclical beings is incredibly profound – in fact it’s life altering, and potentially culturally transformational. When the majority of girls grow up feeling very disconnected from their bodies and reject their menstrual cycles, as they are overwhelmed by cultural and familial menstrual shame, the effects of this play out in a multitude of ways across all realms of our lives. So by learning what your period is, and what your menstrual cycle is as a whole, and intentionally supporting and seeking support during our rites of passages is a sacred reclamation.
