Episode Summary

Myths surrounding your period, birth control, and fertility seem to be the norm starting from a very young age. My friend Nicole Jardim is on a mission to debunk these myths and help women understand how their body functions so they can upgrade their health. 

A certified women’s health coach and the creator of Fix Your Period, Nicole offers a series of ways for women to reclaim their hormone health through methods that combine simplicity and sass. Your period is a wealth of knowledge and can give you tons of information about what is going on inside your body: you just need to know how to listen. 

Nicole is here to help you understand how your hormones contribute to your health, provide you with a roadmap to what an irregular period looks like, and help you embrace the hormonal hierarchy. If you have ever desperately tried to heal your body from period pain or get rid of the nasty side effects of ovulation, this is the episode for you. 

Birth control pills are not going to fix what is going on inside of you. By taking care of your root cause issues, in your 20s and 30s you can set yourself up for a time of joy and body understanding in your 40s. Are you ready to start honoring your body and your cycle?

Quotes

“We sort of view ovulation as being this optional thing, when in fact it really isn’t and shouldn’t be.” (14:24)

“If you don’t ovulate, you really are not making progesterone, and you are missing out on all the incredibly protective benefits of this hormone. Neuroprotective, brain-protective, and so much more, bone health, heart health, I could go on.” (19:22

“We have become so disconnected from our how bodies actually work, how our endocrine system functions, that we don’t realize that every single piece of food that goes into our mouth is either supporting our endocrine system or it is harming it.” (24:09)

“Just so that everyone knows, your body really was designed perfectly; it’s just the world we happen to live in is not so perfect.” (29:25)

“That is one of the points that I really want to drive home to women, especially in their 20s. When I say that everything that you do now is going to have an impact when you are 41, 44, 45, and when you are pushing 50.” (37:10)
