The Food Freedom Fertility Podcast:

HYPOTHALAMIC AMENORRHEA RECOVERY AND BEYOND

On the Food Freedom Fertility Podcast we discuss the challenging, rewarding, and life-changing process of recovering your period and finding freedom with a healthier balance of food and exercise. Whether you’re hoping to regain your cycle and get your health on track, or you’re ready to become a momma- this podcast is for you.

While the recovery process isn’t always rainbows and butterflies, it’s my hope to bring you both information and inspiration during your own recovery journey.

The topic of infertility related to disordered eating and period loss is very near and dear to my heart. By sharing my personal story with HA, recovery, and life after recovery I’ve connected with thousands of women who share a similar experience. Having a podcast is a way for me to continue to share inspiration and spread awareness about HA, how to recover, and talk about what it’s like to finally have freedom with food and exercise!
