Amanda Laird, R.H.N.
Is Your Period a Blessing or a Curse?

SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2:15 pm to 3:15 pm.

The menstrual cycle not only prepares the body for pregnancy, the hormones involved also play a vital role in breast, bone, brain, and heart health. These hormones can impact your mood, appetite, sleep, and other body functions. In this talk, Amanda will help you understand how your menstrual hormones influence your health and wellness every day of the month, and introduce strategies and nutrients that will help support a pain-free period, optimal well-being, and healthy fertility.  *Amanda will be available for questions afterward at CSNN Booth 61.*

Amanda is host of the Heavy Flow Podcast – a weekly podcast dedicated to periods, reproductive health, and other taboo health and wellness topics. Amanda is the author of the forthcoming book, Heavy Flow: Breaking the Curse of Menstruation, published by Dundurn Press in February 2019. |

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 11:45am to 12:45pm
