I would like to introduce two wild and wonderful women for episode twenty-four, Lindsay Martens, Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, and Hallie Rose, Founder of Lunar Wild and host of The Thought Room Podcast. In this episode we discuss women’s menstrual cycles, and fertility through the western biomedical model approach and offer an alternative health perspective with attention on ancient wisdom, self-care practices, naturopathic medicine, and traditional Chinese medicine to name a few. We pay close attention to cultural norms and values in the west and how a more holistic and nature connected mindset can help women reclaim control over their bodies and understand their unique rhythm, so they can ultimately become more whole and show up in their life with more vitality and joy. I want to thank my guests for sharing their personal health journey and for their service helping women better navigate and understand this ancient biological and spiritual right of passage.
