Plant-based, period science.

Semaine means “week” in French because it targets the increase in inflammation that occurs during the week of your period. Semaine Health was started as a passion project to help people with painful periods through natural, anti-inflammatory ingredients backed by science.

Catherine Lee   For over a decade I’ve worked in economic development at the local government level while continuing to pursue my personal interest in how design impacts our lives. I live in Decatur, GA with my rescue dog, Toby. I love to eat cheese, explore cities, read maps, use face masks, and organize my closet by color. I’m an ENFJ and would choose a beach vacation over the mountains any day.  In my late twenties, I started to experience worsening symptoms from endometriosis (read my full story  here ). In 2015 I elected to have surgery and was diagnosed with stage II endometriosis. Learning to live with endo is a lifelong marathon for me. I see it as a journey - learning to take care of myself, listening to my body, and voicing what I need to be healthy. I feel incredibly lucky to work on Semaine with my twin sis and brother-in-law and love talking to other women about their experiences. Drop me a line!  catherine@semainehealth.com

Lauren Lee-Crane   Telling impactful stories through beautiful, persuasive visuals is my favorite thing to do. If those stories help empower people or inspire change, I can't think of a greater way to spend my time. As an art director and designer with over 15 years of experience, I have been privileged to work with award-winning design and publishing agencies in the US and abroad.  I was diagnosed with stage IV endometriosis after an emergency surgery when I turned 30 (read my full endo story  here ), but I've struggled with painful periods and endo symptoms since I was 16. I don’t want other women who have painful periods, endometriosis, adenomyosis and PCOS to go through what I have. Finding a natural way to support women’s health and voice their stories are our biggest goals for Semaine. We want the medical and pharmaceutical industries to invest in women like they never have before.  lauren@semainehealth.com

Matt Crane, PhD.   With a PhD in Bioengineering, I've always loved discovering new things and have spent my career doing biology research. Before leaving to help co-found Semaine, I was a faculty member in the Pathology Department at the University of Washington. My work in the School of Medicine focused on understanding how cells change and fail as we age, and how genetics and environment impact aging.  As Lauren's endometriosis kept getting worse, I compiled lists of research papers on endometriosis to read and help out in any way I could. We began investigating supplements and this ultimately led us to the formulation of Semaine, focusing on reducing inflammation and preventing discomfort before your period begins. As we started to see results, we decided to share what we had learned with other women who were suffering. Drop me a line at  matt@semainehealth.com
