    101. Breaking the Baby Formula Stigma with Mallory Whitmore, The Formula Mom

    51:00

    Mallory Whitmore is a mom of two, educator, advocate, and certified infant feeding tech. She’s the face behind The Formula Mom, an online platform that helps new parents make informed, confident, and supportive infant feeding decisions without all the guilt and shame. We rarely hear information about baby formula, despite the fact that 75% of babies are formula-fed. Mallory Whitmore felt shame around having to feed her child formula, and frustration around the lack of resources out there. She set out to do the research herself and become a resource for other moms to stop feeling bad about using formula, and that’s when The Formula Mom was born. We talk about how to choose the formula that’s right for you, how you can ease the emotions and guilt that can accompany the decision to switch to formula, and other pieces of guidance, information, science, and more. Any decision you make towards feeding your child is the right decision as long as it’s the right one for you.

    100. Supporting Conception: How to Increase Fertile Cervical Mucus

    18:36

    As a fertility awareness educator, cervical mucus is always on my mind – as weird as that may sound! It’s an important bodily function, and, today, I want to talk about the role it plays in conception. Without producing enough (or the right kind of) CM, it’s going to be difficult to conceive. I’m going to share why it’s so important, how to make sure you’re checking accurately, and touch on five research-backed ways to improve CM production.

    98. Fertility Awareness Method for Irregular Cycles, Postpartum, and More

    23:02

    As you know, I’m a big fan of the fertility awareness method! As a certified instructor, I get a lot of questions about how to use FAM if you have an inconsistent cycle, whether due to PCOS, irregular periods, or you’re postpartum. It can be a challenge using FAM during periods of inconsistent cycles, but it is still so incredibly valuable. I’m going to share how to make it work during these periods, as well as answer some other common questions: how to use fertility awareness with or without a consistent partner and who else FAM is for. We Chat About: How FAM gives you control when you’re period is inconsistent What FAM looks like with irregular cycles Using FAM for birth control with inconsistent periods Using FAM postpartum Getting your partner on board Connect With Me: https://www.nourishedwithnina.com/free-workbook-how-to-intuitively-connect-to-your-cycle (FREE WORKBOOK) - Learn how to support the four phases of your cycle! https://www.nourishedwithnina.com/private-hormone-coaching (Private Hormone and FAM Coaching) https://calendly.com/nourishedwithnina/private-reiki-session (Book a Reiki Session) Let’s be friends on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/nourishedwithnina/ (@nourishedwithnina) Healing Hormones is a production of http://crate.media (Crate Media)

    97. Healing Hormones Hits – Supporting Our Metabolism: A New Look at Hormone Healing with Jessica Ash

    1:00:32

    Note: I’m working on creating some incredible new episodes for the podcast. In the meantime, here’s one of our most popular episodes with Jessica Ash! Jessica Ash is a functional nutritionist who coaches and educates women on all things hormones, primarily working with women who’ve struggled with PCOS and thyroid issues, teaching them how to nourish their bodies and master their metabolism. We have these blanket statements of what we should do or what we should cut out of our diet, and it doesn’t always work. Why is it that when someone is doing all the “right things,” they can still not feel their best? Because there’s a new way to look at our body, and that’s from the angle of serving and supporting our metabolism. Jessica explains why healing the metabolism is so important in an easy to digest way. We Chat About: How Jessica ditched the standard hormone advice Eating for your metabolism Testing out the gluten free diet Taking a HTMA test Fiber: take it or leave it?

    96. Balance Your Hormones and Diet + Master Your Minerals with Amanda Montalvo

    52:05

    Today, we’re welcoming back registered dietitian Amanda Montalvo! We’ve been working together for a while now – from when she helped me on my own hormonal journey, to various collaborations, and even just sharing resources. She helps women get to the root of their hormone imbalances so they can have healthy menstrual cycles. She started her nutritional education following the traditional route, but after dealing with her own health problems when getting off of hormonal birth control, she quickly realized the value of functional medicine. After healing her acne, balancing her hormones, and learning the value of the menstrual cycle, she found her purpose in helping women create a balanced body without settling for anything less. We talk about the importance of minerals and supplementation for our anatomy, how to get started with a balanced diet, and sifting through all of the information available out there to find what works for you.
