The Renaissance period (circa 1250-1500) came after a pandemic, the Bubonic Plague to be exact. The Medici family became the patrons of an era of innovation, freedom in thinking, arts/culture, and other areas of Italian life.
The concept of The Renaissance Period (circa 2021) is to intersect innovation in menstrual health and culture to create personalised options for our collective better health and lifestyles.
As I have extreme periods due to endometriosis I must rely on several forms of panacea for the pain. My pain management formula is combined with learned techniques through my mental health journey: soothing baths with essential oils, CBD oil to digest or in massages, a TENS machine which breaks up nerve pain, and lots of musical stimulation.
Overall, I take the approach of immersing myself in different experiences according to my mood. I read, write, create, listen to new music, while stimulating my mind in ways that distract me from the pain.
But the products I require for the actual menstruation during this time is completely varied. I understand everyone has their own ways to manage this battle and fortunately more options are available than ever before (to those who can access it).
I started to do research. I started thinking there must be a socialised way to destigmatise menstruation and gain access to new and alternative resources while learning ways to help others in marginalised communities.
I started questioning “how could we intersect all these concepts to support this mission?”#period
