Forget ‘women’s troubles’ and get your cycle working for you. For most women, one week (or more) out of every month is sacrificed to having a period or anticipating its arrival. And it is largely experienced as a colossal disruption – from being doubled over in pain and suffering from acne outbreaks to loss of sex drive, exhaustion, insomnia and major moodiness. Yet when women seek medical assistance, they are usually told to accept it or take birth control pills to ‘balance’ hormones. What's wrong with this picture? Everything! Period problems are not simply to be endured or covered up with pills – they are our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong. And ignoring these signs can lead to bigger health issues – including fertility problems – down the line. This is where Fix Your Period comes in. Based on decades of work with women, Nicole Jardim’s all-natural approach will help you to see the red flags (no pun intended) that your period (or lack thereof) can alert you to, how to troubleshoot these symptoms to get a better understanding of the problem and, most importantly, what to do about it. It is an empowering approach that will give you the essential tools to take control of your own healing. Whether you are suffering from PMS, PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome), irregular periods, painful periods, endometriosis, fibroids, Fix Your Period will enable you to regain normal, healthy periods and get your life back on track.

'Hormone balance is within reach, and this is the definitive guide for reaching that goal.'-David Perlmutter, MD, author of Grain Brain Prepare to thrive. As women approach menopause, many start to experience the physical and emotional indignities of hormonal fluctuation: metabolic stall and weight gain, hot flashes and night sweats, insomnia, memory loss or brain fog, irritability, low libido, and painful sex. Too often, doctors tell us that these discomforts are to be expected and that we will have to wait them out during "the change". But Dr Anna Cabeca's research and experience with thousands of her patients show that there is a fast-acting and non-pharmaceutical way to dramatically and permanently alleviate these symptoms. The Hormone Fix introduces Dr Cabeca's unique Keto-Green protocol, a plan that pairs the hallmarks of ketogenic (low-carb/high fat) eating with diet and lifestyle changes that bring the body's cellular pH to a healthy alkaline level. The proven result: balanced cortisol and reduced output of insulin, the hormones most responsible for belly fat and weight gain, plus an increase in oxytocin, the "love and happiness" hormone. Whether you are perimenopausal, menopausal, or postmenopausal, The Hormone Fix offers an easy-to-follow program, including - A 10-day quick-start detox diet to jump-start weight loss and reduce symptoms immediately - Daily meal plans and weekly shopping lists to take the guesswork out of a month's worth of Keto-Green eating - 65 delicious and easy-to-make recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, smoothies, and soups - Detailed information on vitamin and mineral supplementation that optimizes hormone balance and gut health - Simple self-assessments and recommended optional lab testing for a better understanding of your hormonal status - Tested and trusted stress-reduction and oxytocin-amplifying advice and techniques With The Hormone Fix you can expect to trim down, tap into new and unexpected energy levels, enhance intimacy, and completely revitalize your life!
