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.

Friends. I don’t often kill a non-fiction book in two days (too many notes to write.) But the Fifth Vital Sign by Lisa Hendrickson-Jack? I legitimately got hand cramps from the notes I took and I read the whole thing in less than two days. The Fifth Vital sign is now a book I will recommend with the same passion that I evangelize Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler with and for many of the same reasons. Lisa Hendrickson-Jack presents an evidenced-based body of work with over 1,000 scientific references to improve your body literacy and ultimately your health. But that’s not the only reason I love this book. Photo by Irina Iriser from Pexels
