Our purpose

Founded in 2020, as a finalist of Action Accelerator, "period" began its roots as an organization that improved the livelihoods of persons suffering from PMDD (Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder). Through spreading awareness of PMDD, inspiring others to create an open dialogue about PMDD, and connecting stories of PMDD through various art forms, Nat explored holistic solutions for PMDD and discovered profound answers within Functional Medicine because of her own health journey.

Functional Medicine, or root-cause medicine promotes holistic and deep understanding of illness and wellness, and because of this, Nat was inspired to integrate this approach to "period". Today, "period" serves as an integrative and holistic organization to help others that in need of support in their relationship to their uterus. 

"Period" is committed to the Sustainable Development Goals of Good Health and Well-Being , Gender Equality, and Partnerships for the Goals. We believe that wellness is the foundation for living sustainably, that menstrual health IS health, that we need to celebrate and empower the female body via gender equity. Through our international collaboration with healers, educators, and advocates, we not only highlight different perspectives, but provide offerings that can resonate with everyone. 

“To not have your suffering recognized is an almost unbearable form of violence”
