BREAKING THE CYCLE OF PAIN
90% of us have our lives disrupted by menstrual symptoms every month. Taught to believe it’s “just part of having a period,” we mask the pain with toxic drugs, alter our hormones with synthetic birth control, or cancel our plans and simply suffer.
None of this is normal,
and it ends now.

HEALING AT THE ROOT
Receive clinically proven support with Cycle Balance®
The symptoms that have us canceling plans and relying on pain meds just to get through the day are really our body’s cry for help. Elix developed Cycle Balance®, personalized Chinese herbal formulas to support the imbalances that lead to these symptoms. In 2022, Elix launched a third-party independently run study by a Clinical Research Organization to validate the efficacy of Cycle Balance®, and its ability to improve menstrual cycle related pain and discomfort.
The clinical trial included 65 participants between 18-36 who had had “moderate-to-severe” discomfort during menstruation, and were in “good health” and living active, healthy lifestyles.
90% of participants felt improvement in just three months with 15 common symptoms like cramps, headaches, and bloating,
It’s time we listen to our bodies. Cycle Balance® is clinically proven to help.
AAPI & FEMALE FOUNDED
Our founder's healing roots
Lulu’s grandfather ran a hospital in Hunan, so she grew up knowing the power of superfruit tonics and medicinal mushroom soups. But it wasn’t until Lulu went off birth control—and experienced the worst cramps, bloating, headaches, and sleepless nights—that she found her way back to herbal medicine.
Passionate about helping people reach their highest potential, Lulu recruited a team of East meets West medical experts to offer greater access to personalized herbal medicine for menstrual wellness. Scroll down to meet more of our medical advisors!
A holistic approach for a healthier cycle
Chinese Medicine views the body as harmoniously interconnected, with each part playing a crucial role in the health of the whole. The only way to properly heal one area is by first understanding the context in which it exists.
To determine your body’s unique pattern, you’ll answer ~50 questions about your cycle and overall health, and submit a photo of your tongue. This reveals the imbalances causing your symptoms, as well as the recommended herbal treatment for healing them.
This approach differs from Western medicine, which typically focuses on treating one symptom at a time. Not only does this not address the underlying causes, but it can often generate side effects that require their own treatment—resulting in an endless game of medical whack-a-mole.
