My Other Musings

Find Your Chill with Lavender Essential Oil

I recently started teaching a new yoga class series called Aroma Flow here in Los Angeles.  This is a trauma-informed restorative yoga class (I will get more into what that means in later posts) with essential oils.

My goal with this class (because yall know my Virgo brain always has a reason) is to provide a healing yoga experience that is focused on the breath rather than the body or physical abilities to allow the nervous system to relax.  Additionally, I’m on a mission to educate the community about the healing power of essential oils by providing a hands-on experience

The Period Chronicles

The Cyster Chronicles Teal Magazine: September 2018

As mentioned in a recent blog about My PCOS Story, September was PCOS Awareness Month.

I took the month off for ‘summer vacation’ to relax and enjoy my birthday.  It was a much needed and appreciated break!  I was truly able to step away from the business side of things and enjoy myself without the pressures of deadlines, consistent social media posts, and creating content.  I spent time with family, rested, hung out with friends I hadn’t seen in a while and was able to focus on getting my house in order.  And when I tell yall it needed it…LISTEN!

Just when I thought it couldn’t have been any better… Continue reading “The Cyster Chronicles Teal Magazine: September 2018”

My PCOS Story

Did ya’ll know September is PCOS Awareness Month?  (Also, my birthday month ????)

For this month’s Period Chronicles, I wanted to share more on my journey to hormonal wellness.

Hi, I’m Katrina.

To be quite honest, I don’t know exactly when I received the diagnosis of PCOS.

What I know is this…

I have had issues with my hormones since I hit puberty (around age 13). I have never had a regular menstrual cycle and from very early on, my cycle was painful and disruptive.  I often left school early or simply didn’t go because of excruciating cramps. Continue reading “My PCOS Story”

Period Chronicles: July 2018 – 6 Holistic Remedies for PMS

Hey Hey Y’all!

Wednesday was the first day of my July visit with Aunty Flow.  Y’all know with all my hormonal stuff I get PMS pretty badly, well this time around it has not been too bad.  I didn’t have very many symptoms leading up to the first day, aside from spotting the night before-very lightly.  It took me by surprise because I had been feeling fine aside from the emotional dysregulation I had been in all month.

Ya y’all heard that right…NO SYMPTOMS!  Well…none that were significant enough that I thought it was about that time.  Very, very little bloating and some breast tenderness but so slight and only for a few days that I thought it was a fluke.  I have NO idea the last time that happened.
