Bloating, sore belly, constipation… frustration it’s not fun, or nice for that matter. In fact 90% of my clients and women in the Well Woman Academy have all in the past experienced so kind of digestive and bloating challenge. Yep, bloating is often one of the most “common” cycle signs going round. Which makes complete sense when you understand how closely linked your endocrine and menstrual cycle are to your gut health.

So I’ve called up the Gut Health expert to join us in this episode and chat about all the gut health, cycles and hormone links.


Meet our Podcast Guest:
