I typically experience bloating, lower back pain, and cramping in the lead up to my period and since I’ve been using Elix for the past month, my luteal phase and my period have been noticeably easier. While I don’t have majorly disruptive periods, I have noticed things are changing in my 40s and this is why I’m so excited about the positive changes I’m seeing. Elix’s health assessment is the key to making all of this possible without having to visit an expensive and time-consuming herbalist. The health assessment asks roughly 60 questions about your cycle, current state of health, and overall wellbeing to uncover the root cause of your symptoms and recommend the best herbs to help you heal naturally. Visit ElixHealing.com to take the free health assessment and begin your journey to menstrual wellness.
