I know I’ve been a little negligent this year about bringing regular Wellness Wednesday videos your way. But this week’s guest makes up for every missed month with her awesomeness. And I’m SO psyched I managed to line up the interview just in time for my August Moon Sisterhood challenge.
I read Alisa Vitti’s fabulous book WomanCode last year during the early stages of putting together my curriculum for The Wellness Project. And it shed some much needed light on how hormones rule the body and play a central role in so many mysterious ailments.
Dubbed the “Hormone Whisperer” by Yahoo Health, Alisa has made it her mission as a holistic health coach to help you fix your fertility and feed the natural rhythm of your cycle. Tune in below to hear her advice, including tips for rebalancing your hormones, finding a natural birth control method that’s best for your body and lifestyle, and how to synch your exercise and eating habits with your period.
Some of my favorite nuggets of wisdom include: what the smell of your pee says about your relationship with caffeine, how going off the pill for a few months during a courtship could help you determine whether you’ve met your match, and generally why it’s important for women to be much more selfish.
If you want to dig in on some of her action steps, check out Alisa’s 3-month Woman Code program on her site FLOliving. And for a more immediate challenge, her team has generously offered a free download of The 4-Day Hormone Detox.
I’m clearly a huge fan girl, and I know you will soon be too. Watch on moon sisters (and men who love them)!
Wellness Wednesday is an on-going Google Hangout series where I interview the most bad ass experts from all sides of the health world. In each video, we talk about their personal journeys, professional prowess, and get to the bottom of how to apply their advice to your busy, hectic, hedonistic life.
