Nobody combines eastern wisdom with western science with a focus on women’s fertility like today’s guest, Dr Nat Kringoudis. Her ideas on fertility are genius, and I always walk away from our conversations feeling inspired and empowered, so I know you’re going to love today’s episode.
Nat’s approach to wellness is fascinating. After recognising the large gap between conventional medicine and holistic health — in particular when it comes to fertility — she set about creating her own unique treatment style. A fusion of western medicine, alternative therapies, Chinese medicine and natural fertility techniques, Nat’s methods have helped thousands of women stay vital, feel sexy, and fall pregnant.
BUT, in case you think ‘fertility’ isn’t a topic for you, let me point out: for Nat, fertility is about so much more than just baby-making. This is about rocking your hormones, increasing your energy levels, and being the best version of you, as well as consciously taking control of your reproductive health.
There’s no holds barred in this episode. We chat pregnancy, the pill, periods, PMS, PCOS, fertility, infertility, thyroid, gut health, contraception, stress and so much more… you are not going to want to miss this eye-opening convo because we discuss it all!
