E136: TBT - What's Causing Low Libido & How to Fix It

Send us a Text Message.Hi friends! Today I am diving into one of the topics that has been a long time coming... Libido! There is somewhat of an epidemic (my words) of low libido in women and this should be more concerning than it is. Low libido is not "normal" and it actually is comes out of running low in other areas of your life.The environment around us, birth control (impacting thyroid function + gut issues), and emotional factors are all culprits that can cause low libido and I break it all down in this episode. If you are a woman or a mom that is in a season of high stress, overwhelm, lack of capacity and/or exhaustion - there is no way your libido is going to be high! It's time to take a step back and find ways to fill your cup.  Listen in to know why that's actually important. In this episode:[04:02] What is libido?[07:20] Environmental factors for low libido[11:21] Emotional factors for low libido[15: 55] Polarity and leaning into your femininity[19:52] My favorite way to increase libido quickly [21:55] A challenge to look inwardOther Episodes You Might LikeEpisode 14: What I wish I Knew Before & After Birth ControlEpisode 16: Birth Control Recovery - How to Nourish & Rebalance your Hormones after Birth Control (Part 2)Episode 66: How I Support My Hormones in Follicular WeekLET ME HELP YOU FIX THOSE HORMONES:FREE RESOURCESLove Your Liver GuideHormone Imbalance QUIZCOURSE + COACHING (When you’re ready to fix your hormones without the drama of figuring it out on your own)Nourish Your Hormones Course1:1 Hormone Coaching - 4 June/July spots left!PRIVATE PODCAST MINI-COURSELeave a 5 star rating on the podcast and DM me the word RATING on IG @leishadrews for $20 off the Restored mini-course on blood sugar balance.

Welcome to Day 1 of the Hormone Real Talk Bootcamp. This episode is an overview of how hormones work throughout your menstrual cycle - TBH you should have learned this a LONG time ago, in middle school or at least at your first OBGYN appointment.I’m going deep into common symptoms seen at different cycle phases, like increased libido and cervical fluid around ovulation, or how symptoms like PMS, cramps, and mood changes can indicate hormone imbalance – and how we can handle that naturally, aka without birth control. If you're not a newbie to this you could still learn something so stick around for a crash course refresher.Tomorrow's episode will be about how stress affects sex hormones and ways to reduce stress for long-term hormone balance, so don’t forget to come back tomorrow for that one. Want to be a challenge VIP?

E106: BTS of Hormone Coaching - How Do I Really Help My Clients?

Today let's talk about coaching - if you haven't worked with me as a client yet you might be wondering what hormone coaching is all about. I'm showing you the BTS of how I work with my clients so you can decide whether or not coaching is a good fit for you. I'll walk you through the difference between coaching in Nourish Your Hormones and 1:1 coaching, how I look at each client picture holistically, and how I incorporate functional lab testing into personalizing each plan for my clients. One of my favorite things as a coach is to not only see my clients succeed in improving their hormone symptoms, but to increase in their mental & physical capacity as a woman, wife, & mom so you can show up the way you really want to in your life. LET ME HELP YOU FIX THOSE HORMONES: Free ResourcesLove Your Liver GuideHormone Secrets WorkshopCOURSE + COACHING (When you’re ready to fix your hormones without the drama of figuring it out on your own)Nourish Your Hormones Course1:1 Hormone Coaching Options MINI-COURSE BONUSLeave a 5 star rating on the podcast and DM me the word RATING on IG @leishadrews for free access to my mini course on blood sugar balance OR buy it here for $27LET’S CONNECT! InstagramRead my story + get more hormone resources at my websiteUse the code HHPODCAST for $50 off Nourish Your Hormones ...Disclaimer: Information shared on this podcast and any referenced websites are not to be taken as medical advice or to be used as a diagnosis or treatment plan for any medical condition.

E78: Low Libido? 3 Hidden Causes You’re Probably Missing

Hi friends! Today I am diving into one of the topics that has been a long time coming... Libido! There is somewhat of an epidemic (my words) of low libido in women and this should be more concerning than it is. Low libido is not "normal" and it actually is comes out of running low in other areas of your life.The environment around us, birth control (impacting thyroid function + gut issues), and emotional factors are all culprits that can cause low libido and I break it all down in this episode. If you are a woman or a mom that is in a season of high stress, overwhelm, lack of capacity and/or exhaustion - there is no way your libido is going to be high! It's time to take a step back and find ways to fill your cup.  Listen in to know why that's actually important. In this episode:[04:02] What is libido?[07:20] Environmental factors for low libido[11:21] Emotional factors for low libido[15: 55] Polarity and leaning into your feminine side[19:52] My favorite way to increase libido quickly [21:55] A challenge to look inwardOther Episodes You Might LikeEpisode 14: What I wish I Knew Before & After Birth ControlEpisode 16: Birth Control Recovery - How to Nourish & Rebaaance your Hormones after Birth Control (Part 2)Episode 66: How I Support My Hormones in Follicular WeekTo get the Restored Mini-Course for free leave a rating & review on the show OR share this podcast in your IG story (tag me @leishadrews) or send it to 3 friends  - DM or email me a screenshot and I'll send the course your way!Email: [email protected] the code HHPODCAST for $50 off Nourish Your Hormones ...Disclaimer: Information shared on this podcast and any referenced websites are not to be taken as medical advice or to be used as a diagnosis or treatment plan for any medical condition.

E74: STRESS Directly Causes Low Progesterone - Is it Happening to You? (Episode 22 Reboot)

Progesterone is one of the most underappreciated, most incredible hormones for women, but it's so common for us to be making less progesterone than we need to, and stress can be a BIG piece of this puzzle. As a busy woman myself, I don't expect life to be without stress, but there are things we can do to impact how our bodies feel stress, how they respond, and how they make and detox hormones, so we can be as optimal as possible even with a stressful life. I'm diving in to how stress can affect (basically hijack) our progesterone production and why it's so important to know if it's happening to you so that you can make steps toward balanced progesterone and long term hormone balance.

E58: Why We Transitioned from Traditional Healthcare to Holistic Hormone Coaching with Dr Heather Rhodes

Do you ever wonder why patients often return to the hospital in worse shape than when they left? As a previous nurse, I've seen it firsthand and it's a heart-wrenching reality. That's why I transitioned from traditional healthcare provider to health coach, and so did my guest, Dr. Heather Rhodes. Our mission? To fill in the gaps left by mainstream healthcare. We share our personal journey of earning our health coaching certifications, making plans, and establishing successful home-based businesses that don't compromise our roles as mothers. But we didn't stop there. Heather and I are teaming up to offer resources for health coaches who desire to provide better results for their clients, comprehend hormones better, and build a thriving business.
