Today I’m chatting with twin sisters Lauren Lee-Crane and Catherine Lee, co-founders of Semaine Health. Lauren and Catherine have made it their work’s mission to help improve women’s health through education about periods and period pain. Semaine, their period vitamin, is formulated with nine super-powered plant extracts and minerals that lower the inflammation in your body when you need it the most.
It is Lauren and Catherine’s hope that Semaine can help give women healthier, happier periods.
In their effort to normalize conversations about women’s bodies and periods, Lauren and Catherine touched on so many important topics, but here are some of my favorite takeaways from our chat:
The connection between inflammation and period pain is significant and should not be overlooked; The idea that women are supposed to experience pain during their period is wrong; just because period pain is common, does not mean it should remain that way; Women of color are at a significant disadvantage when it comes to pain and health issues; Healthy living means being connected to your body, how it feels, and what makes it feel good, and also not striving for perfection.
