This week we talked to Stefanie Miska, founder of the Focus Health Clinic, and master of all things natural medicine! We discussed menstrual health and natural remedies for them - including an interesting use for castor oil!

Stefanie is incredibly well versed in traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, and she had some interesting things to say about how our menstrual cycles are connected to the different nerve endings in our bodies - even our hands! With her expertise, we also talk about how to combine traditional doctoral practice with natural healing remedies, Chinese medicine, and acupuncture. As people with periods, it’s great to learn how our menstrual cycles work, how we can tune into them, and how they affect us, and Stefanie is an expert in that.
