Reclaim your cycle and support your health with this detailed guide featuring 100+ recipes and practices from RN, and author of How to Grow a Baby, Amy Hammer.
There is no one-size-fits-all guide to your cycle. But registered nurse Amy Hammer arms you with a strong foundation in physiology and hormonal health, explores historical and sociocultural aspects of women’s health, and reimagines the phases of the menstrual cycle as aligning with the four seasons to provide a detailed guide for living well in your body.
