Episode 215: Real Food for Fertility + Fertility Friday – Lisa Hendrickson-Jack

On this week’s episode of The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast, we welcome back to the show Lisa Hendrickson-Jack, founder of Fertility Friday, certified Fertility Awareness Educator and Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner, and co-author of the new book “Real Food for Fertility.” 

Lisa appeared on episode #73 of The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast to share her life story, how she got into women’s health and fertility, and how she founded Fertility Friday and more! Go back and listen to her last appearance to hear more inspiration and insight from this incredible woman! 

Lisa is back on The 1 Girl Revolution Podcast to discuss her new book, “Real Food for Fertility”, to share even more insight about women’s bodies and their health, and to update us on all of the incredible work she’s doing to empower women through fertility awareness and monitoring their cycles.  Lisa empowers women and their health practitioners by using women’s menstrual cycle as the fifth vital sign. 

Lisa is also the author of the bestselling books “The Fifth Vital Sign” and “Fertility Awareness Mastery Charting Workbook”, she is the founder of the Fertility Awareness Mastery MentorshipTM program, and she is the founder of Fertility Friday. Lisa is also the host of the podcast Fertility Friday, which is the #1 source for information about fertility awareness and menstrual cycle health.

Lisa works tirelessly to debunk the myth that regular ovulation is only important when you want children by recognizing the menstrual cycle as a vital sign. Drawing heavily from the current scientific literature, Lisa presents an evidence-based approach to help women connect to their fifth vital sign by uncovering the connection between the menstrual cycle, fertility, and overall health — something our education systems have consistently failed to do. 

In this episode, you’ll hear: 

  • Lisa’s inspiring story;
  • How Lisa became interested in charting and women’s health and their cycles;
  • All about Lisa’s inspiring work to empower women through learning about their cycles and treating menstruation as the fifth vital sign;
  • How Lisa and Lily first connected and how they decided to join forces and write “Real Food for Fertility” together;
  • Incredible wisdom and insight about women’s health, their bodies, food and fertility, and so much more!
