Like nobody's business
Hosted by Emily Cassel
If you struggle with discomfort, pain, mood swings, or ANY kind of health issues or symptoms surrounding your period, this is an episode for you! Emily is joined by Nicole Jardim (aka, The Period Girl), author of the book Fix Your Period: Six Weeks to Banish Bloating, Conquer Cramps, Manage Moodiness, and Ignite Lasting Hormone Balance. Nicole’s workintroduces a new way to think about periods, not as a monthly curse, but as an important mode of communication between you and your body. In this episode, the two discuss environmental disruptors that throw us off-balance hormonally, the (surprising!) positive impact of ovulation on our bodies, Nicole’s views on yoni steaming, new info about the HPV vaccine, how to take care of your cervix with nutrition (and the root cause of cervical cancer), & how to objectively track your ovulation, beyond tracking your cycle dates.
Nicole Jardim is a Certified Women’s Health Coach and the creator of Fix Your Period, a series of programs that empower women to reclaim their hormone health using a method that combines evidence-based information with simplicity and sass. Her incredible work has impacted the lives of tens of thousands of women around the world in effectively addressing a wide variety of period problems, including PMS, irregular periods, PCOS, painful & heavy periods, missing periods and many more.
Her passion for women’s health stems from her own health challenges and negative experience with hormonal birth control in her early twenties. After working with an acupuncturist to regain her health, she knew that sharing her experience could benefit many others in the same situation. She became a certified health coach and took further specialized training in women’s hormonal health with industry visionaries such as Dr. Sara Gottfried, Dr. Jessica Drummond (founder of the Integrative Women’s Health Institute) and Chris Kresser (founder of the Kresser Institute).
Rather than treating problems or symptoms, Nicole treats women by addressing the root cause of what’s really going on in their bodies and minds. She passionately believes that the fundamentals to healing any hormonal imbalance lie in an approach that addresses the unique physiology of every woman. This is essential to reclaiming and maintaining optimal health and vitality at any age.
Nicole is the author of Fix Your Period: 6 Weeks to Banish Bloating, Conquer Cramps, Manage Moodiness, and Ignite Lasting Hormone Balance, and the co-author of The Happy Balance, a recipe book filled with over 80 hormone balancing recipes. Finally, she’s the co-host of The Period Party, a top-rated podcast on iTunes—be sure to tune into that if you want to learn more about how to fix your period—and has been called on as a women’s health expert for sites such as The Guardian, Well+Good, mindbodygreen and Healthline.
