Episode 16 - The Business of Birth Control with Abby Epstein & Holly Grigg-Spall
Hi, my name is Iris Josephina
I am a Functional Hormone Specialist (FHS), Orthomolecular Advisor & Holistic Hormonal Health Coach.
I help cyclical folks like you harness their hormones & welcome the wisdom + science of their cyclical body and periods so they can experience more harmony and flow in their life and business.
It’s an honor to welcome you here.
In my work as a hormonal health coach & holistic cycle guide, I teach people with menstrual cycles to live, work and lead according to the cyclical nature of their bodies so they can experience more flow, ease and harmony in life and business.
Since your body is the place from where you live, lead and love — your body and its cycles are the place where you should naturally begin when you desire to come home to YOU and living the life you desire.
"Menstrual cycle education is your birthright. It can help you gain body literacy, agency + sovereignty over your health and body. This will make it possible to start addressing the root cause of your cyclical symptoms and help you heal.
- Iris Josephina
Does this sound familiar?
You notice something is ‘off’ with your menstrual cycle.
There are all these symptoms showing up in your body and you wonder what do to about them. Are you seeing any of these?
PMS, mood swings and/or depression
very heavy and painful periods
periods that are only showing up now & then or did go MIA all together
you have been diagnosed with PCOS
short menstrual cycles
low sex drive
fatigue & burn-out symptoms
post-hormonal birth control issues
You witness your body giving you all these symptoms but when you seek help the only things you hear are something in the lines of:
”It’s probably in your head.”
”This is just how it is, pain is part of having a menstrual cycle.”
”You can start taking the Pill.”
But deep down you do not feel satisfied with these answers, because you just intuitively know and feel there is another way to go about your period problems.
I hear you!
And I believe you.
And let me tell you something else: you. are. not. crazy!
Nice to meet you, I'm Iris Josephina!
I was once where you are: not having a clue about my cycle, suffering with intense period cramps, being on the pill for too long and experiencing post-hormonal birth control symptoms up to 4 years after quitting, acne, trouble sleeping.. and one day I decided it was enough.
I stopped believing this was it - that I was doomed to be in hell every single month and that my body was designed to cause me pain.
I was determined to find other ways to relate to my cycle & period, and started my journey.
A decade later, I am a trained Functional Hormone Specialist (FHS), birth worker and hormonal health coach. I have apprenticed with traditional midwives, mastered essential hormonal expertise, and I am ready to help you fix your period, ease PMS, balance your digestive system and build your energy levels (yup, it's all connected!).
"When I connected to my period, understood how to nourish my body and fertility, my life changed forever. I live from a place of deep connection to my body.
I even run my entire business according to my cycle."
- Iris Josephina
