Is it possible to have better periods? In this week’s episode, Sareta and Chioma speak to Le’Nise Brothers—an author, podcaster, yoga teacher, and registered nutritionist specialising in women’s health, hormones, and the menstrual cycle.

Le’Nise shares her story of transitioning from a successful but demanding career in marketing and advertising to becoming a mother and pursuing a career that works around her family. She studied nutrition and yoga instruction to build her current path, which may seem far from where she started.

Le’Nise is the host of the Period Story podcast, where each episode features a guest who shares their memory of their first period and discusses topics such as how they learned about periods and menstrual health, what they know now that they wish they had known back then and more.

Le’Nise delves into each cycle phase with clear and practical nutrition and lifestyle changes in her book, ‘You Can Have A Better Period‘. She explains which supplements work best to bring sustainable changes to our hormones and menstrual health.

Through this book, Le’Nise aims to challenge the cultural narrative that periods are supposed to be painful, emotional, and messy. It is a practical guide that helps women change how they view their period to harness its power as a fifth vital sign.

Advice for Improving Your Menstrual Cycle: Have Better Periods!


Start Tracking Your Period

Keeping track of your period is a great way to become more aware of your body and its natural cycle. You can use an app, calendar, or journal to log your period’s start and end dates and any symptoms you experience.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking enough water is important for overall health, but it’s especially crucial during your period. Staying hydrated can help reduce cramps, bloating, and other PMS symptoms. Aim for 8-10 glasses of water per day throughout the month.

Exercise Regularly

Regular exercise helps reduce cramps and other PMS symptoms by releasing endorphins that act as natural painkillers. Aim for at least 30 minutes of activity each day—even something as simple as a brisk walk can make a difference!

Eat Healthy Foods

Eating nutritious foods contributes to having better periods since hormones play a significant role in menstruation cycles. Make sure to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, nuts & seeds and healthy fats like olive oil or avocado daily.

Take Supplements

Taking certain supplements such as magnesium or omega-3 fatty acids can help reduce inflammation, which may lead to fewer cramps and other PMS symptoms during your period.

Talk with your doctor or a qualified nutritionist about which supplements might be right for you. For the best advice tailored to your needs, we strongly suggest consulting with Le’Nise.

Get Enough Sleep

Getting enough sleep is essential for overall health—especially when managing stress levels, which can affect hormone balance in the body leading up to your period. Aim for 7-9 hours per night if possible!
