In this episode, we invited our FAVOURITE Functional Medicine Practitioner to speak about Menstrual Cycles and how it affects our girls and young women at Exam time. Welcome back to the 'studio', Elizabeth Sergeant!
This conversation is one we need to have and although Liz is doing so much work and big changes are coming from her alone, we are beginning to see how our awareness and understanding AND campaigning can have a bigger impact.
Liz gave us an incredible insight into what happens with cycles and young women, their cycles still finding their groove and the difficulties to perform that they face. Should schools make allowances for this, specifically at crucial times like exams?
Fascinatingly, Liz also shared that the US Women's Soccer team actually train and perform AROUND their cycles within the team and they have an advantage over their competitors because of this!
OMG this is such an interesting episode. We learned so much about our bodies just from this one chat. Imagine if we are able to empower our young women to connect with their bodies and cycles and not just get on with it, what a difference it would make to them as individuals but also to society and success.
Take control over your life.
