#134 Heavy, Painful, or Irregular Periods - What's the deal!?
COMMON PERIOD PROBLEMS 🌸
In episode #131 of The Holistic Nutritionists the podcast, I shared with you what a normal, healthy period looks and feels like (because MANY of you only know what is COMMON to you).
This week I'm talking about THREE of the most common period problems and some potential drivers for you to look into.
In this episode I covered:
I speak A LOT about hormonal symptoms and imbalances in the work I do with my Thyroid patients in Thyroid Rescue, because there's a very strong connection between the two.
In fact, we have several lessons dedicated to hormone health in Thyroid Rescue for this very reason. SO, if you haven’t already, check out the previous episode to understand what a normal healthy cycle is, and then have a listen to this one! Have a friend who'd benefit from learning more about the above? Share this episode with them.
I'm incredibly passionate about empowering women to understand their bodies better because I truly believe when you do, it can be life changing 👩

#131 Is your period really normal? Optimal periods explained
What is a GOOD period? Is YOUR period actually normal or is it just what you’re used to experiencing?
Each week in my Thyroid Rescue program I ask my community members what questions they have.
Recently I was asked to describe a good period versus a bad period. I thought this was such a great question for TWO key reasons…
1. Understanding your cycle is a gateway to understanding your health. Your cycle affects your mood, your energy, your libido, your body composition, your immune system, and your gut. And all of THOSE things affect how you show up in your life.
2. Having this information empowers you to pick up on subtle body cues - messages from your incredibly intelligent operating system to say “hey, something isn’t quite right here” and take action before it gets to an unmanageable place.
So in this week's episode, we're talking Periods 101. I’m chatting all things ``normal periods” and answering questions like…
❓What are the “phases” of our cycle
❓How do you track your cycle?
❓What level of “pain” is normal?
❓What level of flow is normal?
❓Is it normal that you feel like a 'stage 6 nutter' before you bleed?
💕 Knowing your body is easier than you think. Education + trusting in your intuition = a more empowering place to approach your health from 🙌
#130 Whats With Wheat & Knowing Where Your Food Comes From
Cyndi O’Meara is a nutritionist, film maker, bestselling author, speaker and founder of Changing Habits, a whole food company that believes everything begins and ends with food and that health food should actually be just that - healthy.
Cyndi graduated with a degree in Nutrition from Deakin University in 1984 where her special interest was ancestral foods. At the end of her degree she was so disillusioned by the nutritional guidelines that she paved her own path, steering clear of the low-fat diets of the day.
Her groundbreaking 1998 book ‘Changing Habits Changing Lives’ became an instant bestseller and from there she has grown a successful whole food company, developed a range of healthy eating programs and a certified online nutrition course. In 2016 Cyndi released the acclaimed documentary ‘What’s With Wheat?’ which received 150,000 downloads globally in the first week.
2020 brought LAB TO TABLE, the completely revised, updated and extended version of Cyndi’s bestseller, Changing Habits Changing Lives. Cyndi educates people so they are empowered to know better, eat better and live better - because educating people about whole food is the key to a rebellion and everyone deserves to know exactly what they are eating.

#129 Primal Alternative & Aligning Your Passion with Profit with Helen Marshall
Our guest: Helen Marshall
Helen Marshall is the founder of Primal Alternative, a healthy baking and licensing business. She’s also a health coach and an advocate for living your best life!
Helen’s mission is to empower people to be accountable to their purpose with a new business model of freedom – the Primalista Licence.
The model was born from a desire to share a successful grain free food business model. As a health coach, Helen saw first hand how people ‘fell off the wagon’ as they missed comfort food staples like bread, pizza, pastries and cookies. So she created nourishing alternatives to the foods everyone loves and they literally sold like hot cakes.
Helen gets the struggles many face finding a vocation that aligns with their values. She packaged everything she’d learnt about creating a food business from home whilst on a healing journey, raising a family and designing a lifestyle around the things she loves.
The Primalista Licence meets the needs of many people in all areas of their lives: vocational, financial, mental, spiritual, social, physical & familial.
To date over 185 Primalistas have joined Primal Alternative in Australia, New Zealand, USA & UK.
She hosts the Primal Alternative Podcast on the Wellness Couch, Australia’s Number 1 health and wellness podcast station.
Before ditching the rat race, she was a Fitness Instructor and Personal trainer then a Business Manager for a leading recruitment company in the city. Helen has interviewed people all of her life listening to their desires around health, work and lifestyle and has combined those skills to bring her greatest contribution yet – the Primalista Licence.
Helen lives on 100 acres of wilderness in Albany, WA with her husband Mike and their children Sam & Milly. She likes pilates, massage, coffee with her bestie, sunbathing, meditation, walks in nature and champagne in the spa.
