Jessica Gamble describes how she went from being a woman who felt overweight and sluggish with irregular periods and a diagnosis of Polycycstic Ovarian Syndrome, to a vital woman with regular periods. The work Jessica has done with herself in order to bring about this life-balancing has been alongside the support of Universal Medicine therapies and the Esoteric Breast Massage.
At 174 cm tall I weighed 80 kilograms and had little vitality or motivation. I felt sluggish and often woke up with enormous back and shoulder pain, a tight jaw and felt constantly dehydrated. I remember having to seek support from my mum who was a qualified bodyworker as most mornings I physically couldn’t get out of bed without a back rub allowing me stand up straight and proceed with my day. During this time I was on the contraceptive pill and had been since age 15 so my periods were falsely manufactured and I therefore had little knowledge of just how much my body was struggling. After I finished a long-term relationship at age 20 I decided to go off the pill in order to see if I could shift some of the excess weight and regain some aliveness in my body as my libido was now well and truly dead.
