While the women's health series may be finished, the conversation still continues and today's episode is no exception. Navigating the healthcare system is difficult to begin with, but women have it especially tough with a system that has been built to tailor to conventionally male needs. Changes need to be made, and it starts with conversations like these. Adrienne Nolan-Smith has had her own series of health issues in her lifetime and has dedicated her work to helping others navigate their own health struggles as a certified patient advocate. Today on the show we're discussing her journey to take control of her body and get the resources she needed and how you can do the same.

Today on the show we're discussing:

  • Adrienne's diagnosis of chronic lyme as a teenager
  • Her hormonal struggles and how she found the resources she needed
  • Helping her Mom navigate the mental health system
  • The "disease-care" system and what it means
  • Gaslighting in healthcare and how it affects women
  • Research-based evidence and how to find resources for her own health needs
  • How to make the most of your doctor's appointments.

The female orgasm...how much do you know about it? Today is the fifth installment and last episode of my women's health series so I thought we'd spice things up a bit and discuss how you can have the best big O of your life. And who better to talk on the subject than the orgasm queen herself, Kim Anami.

Kim Anami is a holistic sex + relationship coach, writer and speaker. Her work is a spiritual synthesis of over two decades of Tantra, Taoism, Osho, Transpersonal psychology, philosophy and a host of quantum growth-accelerating practices she uses to propel clients into higher stratospheres of connection, intimacy, energy and creativity. She divides her time between Bali and Los Angeles and a host of beaches in between, where she not only lives and surfs, but lifts objects with her vagina (for real!). Today we'll be chatting all about how to make the most of your sex life and own your sexual power.

We are also discussing:

  • Kim's story and how she became a holistic sex + relationship coach
  • What anami means and how she adopted the name
  • The female orgasm: breaking it down - clitoris vs. g-spot stimulation
  • Ways women can experience more intense orgasms
  • Ways women stand in their own way with the female orgasm
  • The difference between male and female orgasms
  • The Salons including Kim's Latest: The Well F*cked Woman
  • ...and so much more!

On Episode 3 of the women's health series I'm chatting with Paula Mallis a birth doula and the founder of WMN Space all about what happens during pregnancy and what changes to expect in your body. We're also discussing the 4th trimester and why women need to not just be preparing for birth but for the transition that comes after giving birth. Pregnancy tends to be a time when women focus on what their bodies CAN'T do instead of focusing on what they CAN do. Today's episode breaks down this special time and why pregnancy is meant to be embraced, not feared.

We are also discussing:

  • Paula's story and how she became a birth doula
  • Paula's own birth stories with her children
  • The three pregnancy trimesters and what they look like
  • The fourth trimester and why it's important
  • Birth options and why one woman might embrace one over another
  • The placenta birth and cord cutting
  • Eating the placenta - is it safe?
  • ...and so much more!
