I’ve always been a fan of acupuncture. I think it’s fascinating to think the same acupuncture points have been used for thousands of years. This traditional method of medicine is a great option for those looking for additional routes to help heal or just take care of your overall wellness! Plus, it can be a great option for fertility, period resumption and healing heal hormonal imbalances. I had the pleasure of having licensed acupuncturist and herbalist, Aimee Raupp, on the show to share the science behind why acupuncture works.

Thank you to Ned for sponsoring today’s episode! I am thrilled to have Ned as a new podcast sponsor. I have been waiting to share about my love for CBD oil until I could find the right brand that aligned with my beliefs. Ned produces the highest quality full spectrum CBD oil, extracted from organically grown hemp plants in Colorado.
One of the things I love most about Ned is they do not cut corners in their production. Their CBD oil is made from gentle, slow extraction with no high temperatures or high pressure, and zero isolates and synthetic ingredients.
I had the pleasure of trying out their Cycle collection, made with CBD oil and botanicals that have antioxidant properties and major healing power. These salves, tinctures and roll-ons as part of the cycle collection can support hormone balance and easing period symptoms.
