Episode 23: Nicole Jardim - Period Rehab: what you need to do to get your period working for you
I’m really excited about today’s podcast. Nothing get’s me more passionate than talking about things that deeply impact women’s health and their lives that are often misunderstood, or even worse, have shame so deeply engrained into our psyche that we don’t even feel comfortable talking about them. Well, today, I talk to a major myth buster and knowledge sharer- Nicole Jardim. We dive deep into myths, hormones, the postpartum period, painful/heavy/irregular periods, how to find support for these issues and more!
Nicole, also known as the Period Girl, is a certified women's health coach (professional period fixer) and her mission is to empower women to take back control of their hormonal health in a fun and sassy way. She’s outspoken and opinionated about women’s health issues, and believes women have the right to be educated about their bodies. Her goal is to provide women with the tools they need to make radical and long-lasting changes so they can live their best lives.
I cannot tell you how thrilled I was when Nicole agreed to come onto the podcast. She’s been an influence in my own life and I’m SO thrilled to share her wisdom with you today!
In today's episode we cover:
- The biggest myths or misconceptions around our monthly cycle or periods
- Why hormones have such a bad reputation of disrupters of health and mood
- Finding a healthy postpartum flow
- Painful and heavy periods
- Finding adequate support for period issues
- Fix Your Period Book!

And let’s chat about her book for a moment more. I cannot stress enough the importance and value of women knowing their own bodies, to be able to effectively advocate for ourselves and our clients. I’ve had the chance to get an advanced copy of her book, and I can honestly say, it’s really very powerful.

Head on over to amazon or wherever you buy books and get this book friends.

She’s being so generous and really here to support you on this journey.
Another way you can support your period is through movement. What? Next week, I’m going to do a follow up episode all about how to support the pelvic floor, and organs within using simple exercises and getting that blood flowing! Make sure you tune in, you won’t want to miss it!
