In today’s episode Katy shares her experience charting through severe PMDD during the FAMM program. Katy’s experience speaks to the connection between the menstrual cycle and mental health, and how hormonal imbalances magnified her OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) symptoms prior to her period. If you’ve ever struggled with PMS or PMDD symptoms this episode is a must listen.

Katy, also known as Reflex East, is a Reflexologist based in East London, England. She has been supporting people with their fertility and reproductive challenges with the calming power of reflexology in her private practice for 3 years. At the start of 2022 Katy joined Lisa as part of the FAMM programme. Having had her own mental health struggles, exacerbated by PMDD, Katy has personally found the FAMM protocols invaluable. Katy firmly believes that anyone who has a period or struggles to know how to relax should have the tools she can offer easily available to them and is excited to offer fertility awareness to support her clients on a deeper level.

In today’s episode Holly shares her journey with HA (hypothalamic amenorrhea), and how using the menstrual cycle as a vital sign has changed her acupuncture practice.

Holly Leever, L.Ac., MTOM & Dipl.OM, is the owner of Rosebud Wellness, where she practices women's holistic health as a licensed Acupuncturist, Herbalist, Yoni Steam Therapist, Arvigo Abdominal Massage Therapist & Fertility Awareness Mentor. Holly became interested in working with women's health after learning how much could be revealed about a woman's overall health by looking at the parameters of the menstrual cycle.

She has continued to study a variety of techniques in order to offer women at all stages of life, from menarche to menopause, the care they deserve. She is especially passionate about working with women in the perinatal time (prenatal, birth & postpartum).

In addition to acupuncture, Holly’s training included moxibustion, cupping, auriculotherapy, electro-acupuncture, gua sha and Chinese herbal medicine. She is also qualified to make dietary and lifestyle recommendations based on Chinese medical theory.

Holly also hosts a weekly podcast called, Womb Wisdom. The podcast is a combination of information on women's holistic health practices and stories from women on their experience with periods, fertility, pregnancy, birth, postpartum and motherhood.

Holly's practice is located in Thousand Oaks, CA and she offers telehealth visits for fertility awareness mentoring & Yoni steaming consults.
