“Seeing Red”: New Book Addresses Period Shame and Advocates for Total Women’s Health

AUSTIN, Texas , January 22 /Businesswire/ - More than 80 percent of young women suffer from menstrual pain and at least one in four experiences pain severe enough to require medication or regular absenteeism. While women and people with periods (PWPs) have been conditioned to believe these menstrual conditions are “just part of having a period,” Kirsten Karchmer, women’s health expert and author of “Seeing Red” (Tiller Press; November 12, 2019), is busting that myth.

Based on extensive research and years of clinical success, “Seeing Red” offers women an inspiring alternative to the conceptions they have been taught about their bodies and the shame that exists around women’s menstruation. Karchmer breaks down the history of menstruation, the importance of a healthy cycle and why it is one of the most powerful indicators of women’s health.

“The menstrual cycle has been stigmatized to make women feel shameful of its existence,” said Karchmer. “There is enormous power in what our periods are communicating throughout our cycle—they are the single most instructive feedback mechanism for women’s health and fertility. I wrote this book to change the conversation around women’s health and liberate women of the perceived burden of their period.”

During her 20-year career as an integrative health practitioner, Karchmer found that most period problems—PMS, cramping, irritability, migraines and anxiety—can not only be corrected, but are also an indication of overall health and fertility. Founder of the Texas Center for Reproductive Acupuncture (TRCA) and CEO of Brazen, a tech-enabled women’s health company, she has worked with tens of thousands of women to improve their health, menstrual cycles and fertility.

“Whether you have significant PMS and cramping, an irregular cycle or are going through your transition into menopause, ‘Seeing Red’ guides you to understand the symptoms you are experiencing, what it is signaling to your body and how to take action in the ways you care for yourself,” said Karchmer.
