Exciting news to share today! My new book The Fifth Vital Sign: Master Your Cycles & Optimize Your Fertility was released today! After 2 years of researching, writing, editing, and more editing, The Fifth Vital Sign is finally here!

In today’s episode, I talk about the main message of the book: Why we must look at the menstrual cycle as a vital sign that is constantly relaying important information about our health and fertility. We can tap into this incredible knowledge by paying attention to our cycles, and monitor our progress by paying attention to how our cycles change over time. Fertility awareness is a central part of this process as it gives us the tools to both modify and understand what’s happening in our cycles.

Today’s episode is sponsored by The Fifth Vital Sign: Master Your Cycles & Optimize Your Fertility. The Fifth Vital Sign is available for purchase on Amazon, and you can head over to thefifthvitalsignbook.com to download the first chapter for free.

Topics discussed in today's episode:
  • When I first discovered that the menstrual cycle is the fifth vital sign of your health and fertility
  • The incredible properties (and role) of cervical mucus
  • What information will you find in the book?
  • What are the normal parameters of a healthy menstrual cycle?
