Are you ready to uplevel your women's health practice? Welcome to the Fertility Friday Podcast! A podcast designed to empower you to use fertility awareness both personally and professionally. If you are a woman's health professional — and you’re not fully utilizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign — it's time to change that right away! Through evidence-based literature reviews, engaging discussions, expert interviews, and compelling client stories, Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, FAE, HRHP covers everything from complex menstrual cycle chart interpretation and balancing hormones to overcoming fertility challenges and more. With over 20 years of experience teaching fertility awareness, Lisa combines her real-world expertise with the latest research to ensure you're fully equipped to support your clients. Lisa's first book, "The Fifth Vital Sign," describes the menstrual cycle as an important vital sign we should pay attention to.

With well over 4 million downloads, Fertility Friday is the #1 source for information about fertility awareness and menstrual cycle health. All women deserve to understand how their bodies work, and if we wait for our education systems to do it we may be waiting forever. It's up to us to be the change we wish to see in the field of women's health. In other words, It's YOUR TURN to bring this essential information to your clients sooner rather than later — they need it now!

Leading by example OBGYN Dr. Kyrin Dunston lost a life-changing 100 lbs. and healed herself from chronic disease by addressing the root causes of her overweight and dysfunction.  This personal transformation in turn caused a professional one and she left OBGYN practice in 2011 to pursue helping women heal with this revolutionary type of natural medicine after becoming fellowship trained in Anti-Aging, Metabolic and Functional Medicine.

Dr. Kyrin’s book “Cracking the Bikini Code:  6 Secrets to Permanent Weight Loss Success” brought her in office natural weight and health restoration program to women everywhere.  The virtual boot camp program based on the book launched shortly after and offers hands on guidance by Dr. Kyrin from remote locations so that women can use these tools to heal and move towards brilliant health.

Topics discussed in today's episode:
  • How Dr. Kyrin’s family history with medicine and science along with her personal interest in science and how the body works led her to a medical career
  • Kyrin’s own declining health led her to look beyond what she learned in medical school to focusing on natural medicine
  • Looking at difference between what Doctors are taught in medical school on how to treat issues related to the menstrual cycle and how Dr. Kyrin treats patients knowing what she knows now
  • The importance of becoming the CEO of your own health, and educating and investigating yourself on your body, in order to know when something is wrong
  • The common belief that we should look outside of ourselves for answers and go straight to a medical professional is not always the right solution
  • In over for a double blind placebo control trial to be a proper trial, you need to blind the participant and blind the doctor administering the drug
  • The power of our minds is so strong, we can change outcomes based on observations- what a doctor believes about their patients and what the patient believes about the treatments, causes an outcome and if we believe it will be beneficial it will be beneficial and if we believe it wont work it wont work
  • The understanding of beliefs are thoughts that you've thought about 1,000 times that have become unconscious and a drive of your behavior
