Monique Dickson is a menstrual cycle coach and women’s hormone health practitioner. More importantly, she is a wife and a mother of 4 free-range kids, changing the world by raising her children to be compassionate, healthy, and change-makers of the future. Monique learned the hard way that being exhausted and burnt out didn’t serve her family or her community positively. She has gone from dismissing and ignoring her hormones to loving and honoring them and now supports other women to do the same.

In this episode, Monique and I talk about how mothers serve as changemakers, the nuances of hormonal imbalances in mothers, practical tips for replenishing the body, Monique’s journey from exhaustion to energy, the benefits of achieving hormonal balance, and so much more.
