Collective Hub - - COLLECTIVE HUB X MURDOCH BOOKS - WHAT’S YOUR MES­SAGE?

As a natur­opath, nu­tri­tion­ist and fer­til­ity spe­cial­ist for the past 12 years, I’ve seen so many women in my clinic strug­gling with low en­ergy, low moods and other symp­toms – many a re­sult of un­bal­anced hor­mones. This book, which has 50 recipes, prac­ti­cal ad­vice and info, is like com­ing in for a se­ries of ses­sions, only more con­ve­nient.

CAN HOR­MONES IM­PACT OUR WORK LIVES TOO?

Stud­ies show that just be­fore ovu­la­tion your cre­ativ­ity, or­gan­i­sa­tional skills, lat­eral think­ing and pro­duc­tiv­ity are at their best. So for women with a reg­u­lar 28-day cy­cle, this pro­duc­tive peak is prob­a­bly around days 10 to 14. Be­fore your pe­riod is of­ten a melan­choly time, so con­sider sav­ing your cri­tiques for when your mood is a bit more ‘up’.

WHO IN­SPIRES YOUR WELL­BE­ING THE MOST?

Af­ter be­ing wid­owed with two ba­bies at 24, my two beau­ti­ful chil­dren in­spire me to be healthy ev­ery day. I want to be the best role model for them. Noth­ing makes me hap­pier than to see them now as teenagers ex­er­cis­ing hap­pily, and in­stead of think­ing junk food is cool, un­der­stand­ing it’s all about bal­ance.
