In this week’s episode, Bonnie is joined by Lisa Hendrickson-Jack. Lisa is a certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner who teaches women to chart their menstrual cycles for natural birth control, conception, and monitoring overall health. In her new book The Fifth Vital Sign, Lisa debunks the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children by recognizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to fertility awareness and menstrual cycle optimization. She hosts the Fertility Friday Podcast, a weekly radio show devoted to helping women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between menstrual cycle health, fertility, and overall health.
They will touch on such topics as:
- Three categories of woman who uses birth control fall into
- Disordered eating and losing your period
- Gut issues and the connection with the pill
- Common side effects of taking the pill
- Recommendations for woman to assume their regular cycle
