In Episode 213, Lisa chats with her friend and colleague Jenn Pike. Jenn is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist and Medical Exercise Specialist who specializes in women’s health and hormones and is the Bestselling author of “The Simplicity Project” as well as her two cookbooks The Simplicity Kitchen and The Simplicity Body.
If you’ve been following this podcast, you know that Lisa has experienced both highs and lows with her hormones as she’s aged. She’s been very open about her journey, and she’s discussed burnout and the effects of self-care on our hormones.
In today’s episode, Jenn and Lisa want to highlight how hormones play a significant role in your life, and how many women lack understanding of their impact or what they can do to support themselves and their hormonal health.
They talk about symptoms, what it looks like to really take care of yourself, and what it looks like to dismiss your body and not listen to what’s happening. They dive into it all. You’ll walk away with a much better understanding about how your hormones impact you, especially as you age.
