Episode 14 - The Period Lady

June 7th, 2019

This episode is one I recorded with Gemma Barry aka The Well Woman Project. 

Gemma is a specialist in all things women's wellness, a Herbologist and a trained Mizan Abdominal Therapist. 

Periods are her thang! 

We chatted about the benefits of using Mizan massage to regulate your cycle, herbs to stop the bitchin', menstrual cups, PCOS, Endometriosis, the power in the menopause and how we can support our teenage girls when they first start their periods. 

 

"Last year after 10 long years I was finally diagnosed with something, I had a large cyst on my ovary that I need to have surgery to remove. I was also found to have fibroids, endometriosis, and Adenomyosis. It was a bummer and a relief all at the same time. But my intuition had been right, there had indeed been something wrong and finally, I could start making moves to make me healthy again." - Gemma
