Taking control of your health and learning about your body is more important than ever before. With environmental changes affecting your body, foods, and mental stressors, there is no wonder that women are quietly suffering through so many health issues. Dr. Aviva Romm joins me in this episode and just kept shocking me with information about what is going on with women on a hormonal level that is impacting girls as young as 7 years old. We discuss everything from diet to libido, and how you can start gaining control over your days and your power living in harmony with your menstrual cycle because you have a better understanding of how to work with it and not against it.
