It was AMAZING to be back on Embody Radio with the brilliant Emily Duncan. Em is good people, actually she’s the best kind of good people. Her passion and purpose make my heart smile, and I’m so proud of her and all the works she’s doing. Keep on blossoming, my friend.
I’ll let her cover the summary of Part 1 of the show!
"You guys/gals are in for a treat today... @victoriafelkar was one of the first guests on the show (EP 5 & 6), and she’s back for two more EXCELLENT episodes! Victoria is an interdisciplinary researcher (her research is quite literally entitled “Women and Steroids”) and an all around incredible advocate for women’s health.
Today, part one of our interview does a deep dive on:
hormone history and where the gendering of hormones began,
the backstory of medicine, sport, sport medicine, endocrinology, and how it ties in to women’s health,
just about all you could want to know about menstrual cycles,
why menstruation AND ovulation are important to health,
outcomes of hormonal contraceptive use,
SOOOO much more!
She also provided us with a free and thorough menstrual cycle chart so you can start tracking your own cycle, learn whether/not and when you ovulate, and overall just become a better advocate for your own health.
