Because so many of my patients have been fertility patients this season, most of my books have been focused on hormonal regulation. First it was finally picking up Lisa Hendrickson-Jack’s book. This time it was Nicole Jardim’s Fix Your Period. Fix Your Period is a hands-on, six week program that will take you from morosely menstrual to period positive. And it’s all because Nicole Jardim has been where you are. Featured image and cover photo by Mark Arron Smith from Pexels

Fix Your Period by Nicole Jardim

The slow pace of quarantine life means that there has been a drastic uptick in my reading time.

Pretty much daily, the intern and I will be at the table with our respective pineapple agua freca and black coffee, quietly paging through books.

Mornings are not for talking in the Gustafson household.

October is a season of change and transformation. The days get shorter, the nights get longer and colder. Trees shed their leaves and their skeletal branches are a stark contrast to the pale, cloudy sky. Fall is the season of all things witchy. There has been a recent uptick in the number of people calling themselves witch and I think it’s because there is a call for us to change. People don’t seem to mean that they’re making a theological change to Wiccanism. Rather, they are embracing this power of transformation. “Witchiness” has become synonymous with feminine-power (though not all witches identify as female!). It’s raising up our voices, taking care of ourselves, and yeah, sometimes sage sticks, tarot cards, and crystals. So to celebrate this witchy season I want to share with you some of my favorite books about female empowerment, healing, and transformation.
