EMBODIMENT MEDICINE: How can we feel empowered to choose or not choose birth control? with Acupuncturist, Herbalist and Women’s Health Coach Rachel Root
Show Notes

One of the core values of The Empowered Curiosity Community is sovereignty over our bodies. 


We cannot have body sovereignty without understanding what is actually going on with our bodies and I’ve been witnessing the non-consensual culture of how we recommend birth control to women since I became a health care practitioner over a decade ago. 


This is why I wanted to have a conversation with Rachel Root who is an integrative women’s health coach, acupuncturist and herbalist. We talk about how to make empowered choices for yourself and your fertility health. This happens through education, not prescription.


What You’ll Learn: 

  • How your cycle can be your monthly report card of health so you can understand why...
    • Your cycle is long or short?
    • Your menstrual blood is dark or light?
    • You are extremely tired after your menses?
    • You struggle with PMS or PMDD before your menses
  • The physiology and energetics of the different phases of your menstrual cycle 
  • How the womb holds onto trauma
  • The spiritual alchemy of the fertility journey 
  • Practical ways to track your fertile window
  • Your best synthetic birth control options


Listen to this episode if...

You are a menstruating person who wants to understand your cycle with the intention of getting off birth control or with the intention of staying on birth control in an empowered way
