This episode is a special one! Today I have three of my favorite women’s health colleagues and friends on the show: Dr. Saru Bala, a licensed naturopathic physician; Dr. Natalie Underberg, a Functional Medicine Practitioner; and Danielle Kepics, a physician assistant, certified fertility educator, and nutrition coach.
Dr. Natalie Underberg is a Functional Medicine Practitioner and the founder of The PCOS Doc. With a doctorate of Chiropractic and advanced training through the Institute of Functional Medicine, Natalie is a leader in the women’s health space. She has helped hundreds of women reverse the symptoms of their PCOS and get pregnant naturally through her group program, The PCOS Collective, and her one-on-one tailored holistic approach.
Danielle Kepics is a physician assistant, certified fertility educator, nutrition coach, master’s level therapist, and former personal trainer. She is the CEO and founder of Empowered Medicine, where she guides women to be the CEO of their health. She offers one-on-one as well as group coaching services.
Dr. Saru Bala is a licensed naturopathic physician specializing in women’s hormonal health. Having been through her fair share of hormonal and gut issues, she knew there were more options than she was presented with, and having to figure it out on her own was exhausting. Dr. Bala wanted to be able to educate other women on their bodies, what’s normal, what isn’t, and really be an advocate for them to KNOW there are plenty of other options if what they’re seeking now isn’t working for them or if what they’re presented with isn’t the path they’re looking for.
In this episode, we talk about what we consider to be the most critical aspects of women’s healthcare that need attention. We discuss why women aren’t getting the care they need, the fact that women are more confused than ever about how to take care of themselves, how you can access the care you need, why you should prioritize your health (even if it feels selfish!), the problems with keto, intermittent fasting, and alcohol, our non-negotiables for our health, and so much more!
This episode is brought to you by Knix, makers of comfortable, period-proof underwear.
I’ve been using period underwear since 2014, long before it was popular, so I know a thing or two about what to look for in a great pair of period undies. I recently started using Knix period underwear, and I’m actually in love. When wearing these undies, you can be fully confident that you won’t have any leaks, even when sitting or lying down for a long time.
Their cotton, leakproof underwear is soft, stretchy, and feels like regular underwear. They come in a range of absorbencies and can absorb up to eight tampons worth of liquid, so they’re great for every day of your period. Not only are they super absorbent, but they also stay dry. Plus, they’re so easy to wash you can just pop them into the washing machine with a mild detergent and tumble dry them on low.
