Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • The symptoms that you experience when you’re on the pill
  • Your non-hormonal birth control options

Key Takeaways:

  • Using the birth control pill causes a lot of nutrient depletion like zinc, magnesium, vitamin C and the B vitamins — all things that are so important and needed for supporting your hormones, your cycle, and your overall health.
  • All forms of hormonal contraceptives can increase your risk of cancer.
  • When it comes to natural forms of birth control, the number one is to do natural family planning.
  • Even if you have a very irregular cycle, you can still do natural family planning. It’s going to provide you with so much data and information about your body.
  • The Copper IUD can deplete your body’s ability to absorb zinc, so if you’re going to use it, it’s recommended that you supplement with zinc

Action Steps:

  • Be conscious of the synthetic hormones that you are putting into your body.
  • Consider doing natural family planning.
  • Use the barrier method.

“As we age, our hormones do decline. And so it’s really important to integrate some important protocols and strategies and a lot of self-care so we can age gracefully and we can have a lot of ease around our cycles and as we head into menopause.”

“If you know you want to be a mom in the future, use condoms today because it’s really one of the best ways to protect your reproductive organs and keep them healthy…”
