How A Lack Of Body Literacy Is Harming Women

with podcast guest

Danielle Kepics


“You are the CEO of your health.” – Danielle Kepics

Danielle Kepics is a family practice physician assistant and previously trained master’s level mental health therapist. Danielle has a strong passion for integrating the health of mind, body, and soul into her medical practice. Over the years through both personal and professional experiences, she has noticed major gaps in how the conventional healthcare system addresses menstrual health and women’s health at large. She is passionate about integrating teachings of the fifth vital sign into conventional allopathic medicine and giving her patients the tools to truly be the CEO of their own health.

In this episode, we talk about the lack of education most of us have access to about our bodies, the systemic issues in conventional medicine when it comes to the birth control pill, how you can advocate for yourself with healthcare providers, and so much more!

I’m so excited because Agni has just launched a complete women’s health box for healthy hormones and better periods. What I really like about Agni is that they work with a Medical Advisory Board and top chefs to make their products, so if you’ve ever wished your supplements tasted delicious, you’ll really love their new box. The Complete Women’s Health Box has five awesome products in it – my personal favorite is the double chocolate chip cookies. They’re the kind of cookies that make you want to eat the whole box in one sitting. I also really love the seasonings which make seed cycling super easy, plus they turn your avocado toast into otherworldly goodness. Everything in the box is gluten-free, dairy-free, and totally delicious.
