From Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome to regular periods through Esoteric Healing

by Jessica Gamble, Psychotherapist, M.GestTherapy, Tintenbar, NSW.

At 18 years of age I should have been a fit young woman who wanted to grab life with both hands. Although I wasn’t depressed and did not have anything physically wrong with me, I had certainly adjusted to living a life that lacked true health and wellbeing.

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 to 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.

After a number of months, I realized that my menstrual cycle was actually very irregular, with no warning or rhythm of my periods it was truly a lucky dip, some months they would come, with droughts in-between. This went on for some time until I experienced an extended drought, not having a period for 10 months, at which point I decided to get medical help. After a number of referrals and medical tests I was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), informed that I had an imbalance in my testosterone and warned that weight loss would be a constant struggle and fertility may be difficult. I asked the professionals in front of me what I could do and they prescribed the contraceptive pill, saying this would resolve the issue of irregular periods. I felt the contraceptive pill would more cover up rather than resolve the main issue and decided to see a nutritionist instead. My nutritionist told me that the priority was to lose weight in order to get me back into my healthy BMI range. After 6 months of a low GI diet and increasing my exercise to a minimum of 4 out of 7 days I had dropped 5 kilograms, weighing in at 75 kilograms. However I still had no periods.

My mother had been attending some complementary health workshops and suggested I have an Esoteric Breast Massage. This was my first session with an Esoteric practitioner and I remember feeling uncertain, as the modality was unusual and felt a little exposing. However the session was very respectful, and honoring of where I was at in terms of being a young woman who was clearly self-conscious. Throughout the session I had a realisation that I did not have a healthy relationship with my breasts and instead felt a lot of shame about them. There was a hard numbness to them and I left the session pondering on this new connection I had made with my breasts. Within the week of receiving this session I had my first period in what was about 16 months. Throughout the next 12 months my periods were still not regular, but they were much more frequent. On a second occasion, after about a 2-month drought, I experienced getting my period 5 minutes after receiving an Esoteric Kidney and Ovary Massage.

Six years on I’m now in my late 20’s and thanks to the support of the esoteric modalities I have changed my diet and exercise regime to one that is much more supportive of me. I make more self-loving and honoring choices in all aspects of my life as I have a much stronger connection to what I want and need. I no longer feel sluggish; I wake filled with vitality and motivation (with 1 or 2 days exception…I am human). I have a new and amazing connection with my breasts, often admiring them in the mirror. They have gone from an A cup to C cup, however, I have gone from 80 kg to 60kg. With this weight loss my body structure has changed, with slender shoulders and less of an armouring stance in my back and arms; the feeling and texture of my skin has even changed! I am also happy to report I have had regular periods for over 4 years now.   I experience my periods as an amazing clearing and time to connect and reflect more deeply with myself. I feel powerful and excited about contributing to society, getting on with life, doing what I love and living life to the full.

I feel that Serge Benhayon, through the teachings of Universal Medicine and the delivery of healing modalities such as the Esoteric Breast Massage, has helped me to understand myself and my body more deeply, supporting me to reconnect to who I truly am, and restore harmony to my body, as shown to me now by the regularity of my periods, the fullness of my breasts, and the light in my eyes.

  1. This is an incredible turnaround – not just the physical changes but the way that you feel within yourself too and how I get the sense that these changes are truly sustainable and something that you’ll continue to deepen in your life rather than just being short-term change.

  2. “I make more self-loving and honoring choices in all aspects of my life as I have a much stronger connection to what I want and need.” Very wise words Jessica, to self love and honour oneself, sets us up to be able to honour everyone else around us.

  3. The body’s response to true energetic healing is nothing short of incredible yet at the same time it shows us how our body is forever willing to return to harmony.

  4. I wonder how many young women unnecessarily suffer similar problems the way you did Jessica, which could be sorted out the same way you have overcome them with the help of the amazing Esoteric Practitioners available these days.

  5. Very inspiring account of leaving no stone unturned and taking responsibility for all aspects of your life and the quality you live in.

  6. These changes are huge and something be truly appreciated, it’s evidence of the great value and support offered by Universal Medicine’s Therapies.

  7. It saddens me that the best option we currently have for PCOS is the pill. As you have said it really just covers up the fact that your body and cycle are trying to tell you there is something wrong. What I find most concerning in this scenario is that we the clients have come to the point where a pill to appear to fix the cycle is considered enough, so medicine seeks no further and we have no real desire to get to the root of the problem or achieve health and vitality.

  8. When I was 21 and stopped having my period I was told by a doctor that I ‘should not complain as many girls my age would enjoy not having their period’ and that it would return surely at some point. I was baffled at the time but now understand that from a medical perspective we fall way short in having answers to what is going on in young women’s bodies. With the rise of problems in young women, as I also come across in my own practice, shows us that we simply cannot afford to keep Universal Medicine Therapies on the sideline as without it no true answers can be given.

  9. It’s a remarkable story Jess, and it shows how false the message spread by the women’s magazines about what is needed to love oneself and feel comfortable and vibrant in your body, in fact such a way of speaking would never be on their agenda as it doesn’t sell into a destructive cycle of obedience. The structural changes in your posture alone is something that would benefit the health of so many people. How much we damage our health when we don’t live in an way that is open and accepting of our body, and how incredible that you sought the help of the esoteric modalities and the miraculous changes this unfolded.

  10. The way medicine is currently operating – we have an amazing way of diagnosing something wrong with a person – and then immediately jump to a “pill” or “procedure” without truly getting to the root of why someone has an illness. Yes the system at present doesn’t support this – it supports to get through as many people as possible with the hope of quick effective treatment so that it can all keep running.

  11. Committing to healing ourselves by way of the Esoteric modalities we get to offer the world a re-imprinted body of who we are which forever expands if we so choose. Evolving does not stop once one area of the body is healed.

  12. What an inspiring transformation, thank you for sharing this Jessica. In your first paragraph you expose an affliction that we are all affected by and mostly succumb to. We ‘adjust’ to a perceived sense of what is ‘normal’ which is measured by the society we are surrounded by, where we are considered healthy if we are not sick, or visibly ill. This measure of health is an injustice to the degree of vitality we are born to live, and as you have clearly shown us through your lived experience, we have the potential to live with far greater health and well-being when we live guided by our connection to our bodies and being. True health is so much more than just being free from illness and dis-ease.

  13. I loved reading this blog as it has so many answers or at least things to ponder for any women experiencing POCS. So often these women spend years getting the run around from doctors and treatment options are not that great. Jess brings a valuable personal experience that can support other women.

  14. An amazing account of how when we do not settle for being just ok, take responsibility for our health and wellbeing and are committed to making changes, miracles happen.

  15. An amazing turn around of your condition Jessica bringing harmony to your body and light to your eyes, beautiful. Esoteric healing modalities are deeply supportive in healing ourselves.

  16. Esoteric healing truly supports the body to return to its natural rhythm, and I loved reading how different you feel now, when we truly connect with ourselves there is so much more we are able to offer society and our life becomes very fulfilling too.

  17. This is the best story, I love the way you share, I mean, it’s so a matter of fact and down to earth and then you take a moment as a reader and realise that you are describing a modern day miracle! I can imagine there are heaps of women around the world that have irregular periods and are simply prescribed the pill for life until they finally get menopause! Serge really does support in a way that is indescribable, what an awesome human being!

  18. An inspiring account of your commitment to turning your health and well-being around from your experience Jessica and restoring harmony to your body through taking responsibility for the way in which you are living and in being more loving and honouring of yourself.

  19. The power of The Esoteric Breast Massage cannot be under estimated. I have found it hugely supportive in my life and know plenty of people who have, as a result of Esoteric Breast Massage treatments, changed the way they are with themselves, clearing old beliefs and ideals which have been behind unhealthy behavioural patterns.

  20. A truly stunning testimony to both the Esoteric Breast Massage and your choice to commit to not settling for disconnection, apathy and ill health…. Instead embracing all of yourself in full, embodying the beauty and power of being a woman and being inspired through your depth of connection to commit to contributing to society, getting on with life, doing what you love and living life to the full…. A way of life that benefits the all.

  21. It always amazes me the way our body clearly shows to us what is not working and how precisely it responds to our attention when we come back to listen to it again.

  22. This is such an amazing confirmation of the changes you’ve made and how you now live Jessica. And given how much more common and prevalent PCOS and period issues are today, it’s a story that needs to be heard far and wide. There is so much more to how we live and are with us than many of us have allowed … your new found relationship with your periods is very inspiring… a time to reflect and consider how you’ve lived; that’s a game changer, to embrace our cycle as a way and time to reflect, and to feel how we’ve been and how life is for us … the gift our periods give us.

  23. Awesome sharing, thank you Jess, this gave me many points to reflect on. I was obese and also had PCOS but have lost over 30 kgs but am still in the overweight category. I was happy with this because it was so different to how I was before however in reading this I noticed that I still do feel tired and sluggish in my body so there is room for more changes and that I am not far off the healthy weight range and can feel the difference this makes in my body.
