Periods & The Menstrual Cycle 101

with podcast guest

Nicole Jardim


Many of us are chronically inflamed due to our diet and the stress in our lives. Many of us have conditions that have not been diagnosed. But what I think is most exciting is the fact that we can do a lot about it. The first step is getting to know what’s normal and what’s not and that’s what we’re covering in this episode.

This episode is a little different from the usual – I’m going solo! For the month of April, I’m so excited to take a deep dive into the period and hormone-related topics that have been the most problematic for you over the years. In these solo episodes, we’re going on a journey together and I’m answering your most pressing questions.

The inspiration for this season of solos is my first book, Fix Your Period, which will be out in the world on April 28th and is available now for pre-order (with some incredible bonuses worth over $500!). During this time, I want to give you practical and valuable information that will help move the needle on your health.
