For a while now, the health and wellness space has pushed a go go go mentality to women, often promoting intense workouts, dieting, and fasting.
This, along with society’s idea of hustle culture has led many women into a never-ending hamster wheel of activity.
But many of these ideas go against how the female body works – and can lead to poorer health overall.
Many women are finding themselves exhausted and stressed. And the question is: how does this affect our thyroid, cycles, and metabolic health?
And what can we do to better support and nourish our bodies?
In this episode of the SHE podcast, I talk with functional nutritionist and expert on all things metabolism and women’s health, Jessica Ash, about how to work with your body to support your metabolic and thyroid health.
If you haven’t heard, Jessica Ash is a former PCOS and Hypothyroid sufferer turned hormone nerd.
From insulin resistance to recovering from hormonal birth control use, to adrenal “fatigue”, to Hashimoto’s, to severe digestive issues, to horrible periods, to a wrecked metabolism- she’s been there.
As a clinical nutritionist, functional diagnostic nutritionist, certified personal trainer, and expert on all things metabolism and women’s health, Jessica’s mission in life is to help women reach their health potential by learning how to work with their body.
And trust me when I tell you that she has so much great info to share!
