The Black Girl’s Guide to Healing is a self-help book by Kathleen N. Richardson.
In this E-book download, I share the 10 tried and true ways to have a healthy and pain free period. This book offers guidance on how to address the four most problematic issues of menstruation. When it comes to menstruation, most women struggle with the following:
- Periods lasting longer than 4 days
- Heavy, excessive bleeding
- Blood clots
I am here to tell you three things. Number 1, this is NOT normal. Number 2, you can have normal, healthy periods. And Number 3, you have the power to heal yourself. Throughout the course of this book I will discuss my personal menstruation experience and how I was able to heal myself. I will discuss our painful history as black women in this country and delve into the inherent racism in gynecology. I will define what a normal period looks like and explain why we experience unhealthy periods. Lastly, I will provide the ten steps or rather ways of living, being and thinking (it’s a lifestyle) that will lead to a healthy and pain free period. The foundation to the Black Girl’s Guide to healing is to understand that you were destined to be your own healer.
