Are you ready to get in the flow with your flow?

This episode is dedicated to everything heavy, bloody and flowy… yes. Today on the podcast I’m talking about how you can understand if your period is heavy, what a typical flow should look like, and some options to talk with your medical provider about if you’re suffering from a heavy flow.

Things we talk about on this episode?
A proper flow should be 6-8tsp of blood
Iron Bisglycinate or Heme-Iron to replenish
Ginger to slow flow
NSAIDs (yup!) to slow flow & help with pain
Tranexamic Acid to slow flow

Yes. A combination of conventional and natural is best, especially in this case.




This episode is also the fifth episode of our Building A Superwoman Miniseries, sponsored by CanPrev Women. If you’ve ever been to the office, you might recognize their sister company, Cytomatrix. This company is founded and run by an amazing woman, and is Canadian born and Canadian based. They also make great products, with proper dosing, and no BS. I’m thrilled they are helping The Superwoman Code bring the education to women to help you all make your health work for you, not against you.
