What Does Your Contraception Say About You? Episode 4

Is your contraception a choice or a treatment for a more serious issue?  Many women don’t choose to take birth control – they are told it is the only option to treat serious health issues including endometriosis, PCOS and other gynaecological and hormonal issues.  In Episode 4 of The Wellness Collective Podcast, I’m excited to say, Cecelia and I discuss the truths of using contraceptives like the pill and the mirena and how your hormone fix may be a far lot simpler than you might think.

We’re after long term solutions – not bandaids.  I think you’ll agree, treating the root case of any issue rather than just skimming about the edges treating symptoms makes far more sense.  You’re going to love this episode!

Intermittent Fasting – What It Really Does To Your Hormones.

So you know, I’ve been fasting.  Truthfully you may not actually know but I did post a picture on my socials sharing of how I had been intermittent fasting for the past eight weeks and I can safely say my body is loving me crazy for it.  You, my favourite people had a LOT of questions and so in true NK style I knew I needed to pin down a date with my keyboard and tap this out for you, so here we are.

Intermittent Fasting in a nutshell is going for select periods of time without food.  I have written about it here before and dived right in, it’s worth taking a read.  Maybe if you had asked me just three short years ago my thoughts on fasting, I would have told you it’s a big NO for your hormones.  Truthfully though, we are always learning and hit fast forward I’m here today to say, I’m a big fan.  Not only have I been trialling it myself, but I’ve also been doing this with my patients for some time too.

With this in mind, I want to answer the questions that have hit my inbox over the past few days – to really help you decide if this is something for you or not.

So You Like Good Hair Huh?

Am I wrong in thinking that almost every person on the planet is slightly hair obsessed?  Whether we want good hair, have a lot of hair, no hair or unruly hair, we tend to bring it up in conversation frequently.  If this was just an observation, my question was further cemented in this week when I posted a video of me doing my hair one morning and the views hit an all time high.  It appeared, that people enjoyed watching me curl my hair.

It got me to thinking – did I need to remind my favourite people (that being you) that you can always improve health – hair included?
