Show Notes

What's up, ladies. Wondering what the buzzword "cycle syncing" means? Curious about how tracking our energy throughout the month can help us feel better? Ever feel like your plate is overflowing because you take everything on yourself?

Well...this episode is for you!

Today I interview Dr. Shalonna Battle, a Florida-based women’s health nurse practitioner with over 13 years of clinical and nursing education experience. As a doctorate of nursing practice, while school has played a major role in her career, it's her hands-on clinical experience that's groomed her into the provider she is today. Shalonna is experienced in caring for women across the lifespan, and concerns including gynecological disorders, family planning and reproductive care, caring for women who are survivors of abuse and sexual assault, and postmenopausal concerns.

Join us as we talk about:

- The role of a Doctorate of Nursing Practice and Shalonna's career as a women's health nurse practitioner

- The concept of "Superwoman Syndrome" and how we often try to take it all on  - and how this relates to our need to control

- The concept of linear vs. circular productivity

- Hormones and their impact on our menstrual cycles (and the difference between PMS - premenstrual syndrome - and PMDD, or premenstrual dysphoric disorder)

- Paying closer attention and bringing mindfulness into your menstrual cycle

- Cycle syncing for diet and nutrition

....And more! Tune in, and don't forget to rate and review Once You See It on Spotify, Apple, or wherever you listen to podcasts.
