Today we are talking gut health, parasite cleansing, and plant-based eating for hormone healing with certified hormone specialist, Shannon Leparski! Shannon is the author of The Happy Hormone Guide, as well as the creator and wellness blogger behind The Glowing Fridge. Checkout her blog for yummy vegan recipes to support your hormones!

Shannon begins by diving into her struggle with acne, experience with birth control, and her journey of healing her gut. We talk about foods to help with candida overgrowth and gut inflammation, which both affect hormone health. Shannon then details how she eliminated issues with bloating and food sensitivities by parasite cleansing.

Our conversation explores which foods to eat during the phases of your cycle (menstruation, follicular, ovulation and luteal) to support your hormones! For example, Shannon shares how some of her favorite foods to eat during the menstrual phase are miso soups, black beans, beets, and kale. Even if you don’t follow a plant-based diet, there are so many takeaways from this episode. I can’t wait to share it with you!
