EP 24: What Your Period Is Trying to Tell You with Erin Borbet

Last summer, I had the joy of meeting Erin at her home in Victor, ID, as we were traveling across the country collecting flower essences + hosting Flowerlounge Events. We were greeted with the most decadent spread of eggs, bacon, fresh salad greens, elk sausage, homemade pate, banana almond flower muffin + black cherry coconut raw cheesecake ~ she wrote an amazing post about the breakfast feast here!

If you're a regular listener of the podcast, you may be thinking, "this woman sounds familiar!" That's because I interviewed Erin for our first ever Flowerlounge Podcast episode! She is spilling at the brim with SO MUCH information that e v e r y  w o m a n needs to know ~ so I invited her back to divulge more!

What you'll hear in this episode:
  • Eastern vs. Western approaches to the menstrual cycle
  • Way of working towards a symptom-free menstrual cycle: herbs, supplements, and practices!
