    Who Run The World? Hormones! featuring Amy Thomson

    Who Run The World? Hormones! featuring Amy Thomson

    This week's episode features Amy Thomsom, one of the founders of Moody Month and author of 'Moody', a new book all about hormones!

     

    Moody Month is a daily health-tracking app that helps women track their cycles and understand their hormones. 



    My conversation with Amy was so interesting - this is was one my favourite episodes to record! We talked about women's health, the gender gap in medicine and how much more we should understand them instead of shuttering away from words like 'estrogen' 



    If you want to check out Moody Month before diving into the app: @moodymonth on Instagram and moodymonth.com 



    And now, 'Moody' is a book! Where you can deep dive into our hormones shape us and how we can work with them towards a healthier life!
