Body Literacy

The Justisse Method supports the principles of Body Literacy by teaching women how to:

  1. observe, chart and interpret scientifically proven fertility signs

  2. achieve pregnancy, especially women who are experiencing concerns about their fertility

  3. monitor reproductive health and wellness from first menstruation to menopause

  4. avoid pregnancy without using hormonal contraceptives

Body Literacy is having the self-knowledge gained by learning to observe and chart scientifically proven signs of fertility and infertility, as well as other health and wellness observations. Body Literacy also includes a broad base of knowledge from which women can make fully informed reproductive choices. Justisse Practitioners are trained to help women gain body literacy.
