“I realized that although I was taking care of these women and I was developing protocols, there wasn’t a lot out there. Hormones were such a taboo thing, although hormones are what allows women to make the world!” [5:02]
“When it comes to essential oils, it’s literally leveraging plant chemistry which was medicine well before modern medicine was medicine.” [8:54]
“There’s a couple different things we can do to reset our hormones and stress is playing a big role in that. It’s chemical, it’s physical, it’s emotional… What we put into our bodies -- the food, the medicine, all of that -- that’s a chemical stressor. Depending on what we’re eating, we can really stress the system as well.” [18:48]
“Health doesn’t have to be painful. It can be this really joyful experience. It can be punctuated with these moments that we relish.” [27:22]
