We’re back! Periods in Sports

Are you an athlete whose cycle changed as your training got more intense?

We’re back! So excited to be having our weekly Flow-versations with you for Flow Friday! This week, we are talking about the new and revised Sisters of Flow. (Hope you like it!) Also, we are focusing on periods and sports. Specifically, the Triad Syndrome and how one Olympic medalist took social media by storm by talking about her period.

 

Feed Your Period with sauerkraut!  Learn how eating this fermented food helps your cycle.

 

Special thanks to our Flow Friday Fact partner, the Womb Sanctuary, A Sacred Place for Women to be Seen, Heard and Loved! Check them out at: www.wombsanctuary.com
