At Beloved Holistics, we envision a world in which birthing people are worshipped as the sacred convergence point of the physical, etheric, astral, and other subtle bodies. We envision conception, birth, and death as the natural consequence of love, the creative force of the universe, which is a direct experience with the divine. In this world, we thrive through our co-creation with soil, life, planet, and the cosmos. Maddie's IG Nathan's IG Nathan's Website Show notes

Ep. 43: The symptothermal method and other, fertility awareness-based methods with Dr. Mona Wiggins
Did you know that you are not fertile every day of your cycle? Rather, there are 6-7 days per cycle that you are fertile and have a chance of conception if unprotected sex were to occur. You may have heard of the fertility awareness method (FAM) before, but did you know that this is an umbrella term for various fertility awareness methods? In today’s blog post, I will break down each of the 5 fertility awareness-based methods. To learn more, listen to this podcast episode discussing the symptothermal method, the method that Dr. Mona (episode guest) and I both use and teach. Show notes Maddie's Instagram Mona's Instagram

Ep. 37: Birth Control Pills: Things to consider before starting.
You may want to reconsider your relationship with hormonal contraceptive, especially the pill, Nuvaring, patch, etc.. The hormonal contraceptive pill switches OFF our hormones, our ovaries, ovulation, and our HPA axis communication. It does this in the short and long term and causes short and long term health effects.  Listen for more information and/or checkout our corresponding blog post here. Maddie's Instagram PLH Instagram

Ep 36: Is your period missing? Hypothalamic Amenorrhea and recovery
If fatigue, hunger, hair loss, feeling cold, non-existent libido, sleeping troubles, missing period or irregularity sound familiar, you have come to the right place. Food and exercise are areas of trauma for most of us women. I see, more often than not, both in my private wellness practice and in research, that women’s menstrual and overall health are declining due to undereating, overexercising, and yoyo dieting. When done chronically, disordered eating can lead to hypothalamic amenorrhea. It is estimated that HA affects approximately 1.62 million women between the ages of 18 and 44 in the United States and 17.4 million women worldwide. Show notes Follow me on Instagram!

Ep 32: Nutrition for your hormones / What to eat for hormone balance and to prevent PMS
LET'S GET INTO NUTRITION FOR YOUR HORMONES QUEENS! We all have unique nutritional needs, of course, but there are certain principles we can all abide by when it comes to hormone balance. These principles are simple and based on the most studied and proven healthiest way of eating IN existence and is commonly referred to as "Mediterranean diet". But what the Mediterranean diet really is, is one full of whole foods. Lots of plants and fiber, healthy fats, and protein. The nutrients and plant-based chemicals these foods contain will nourish your glands, organs, and promote hormone balance. It also helps to reduce inflammation which is key when it comes to addressing PMS/hormone imbalances. Show notes

Ep. 26: Menstrual bloating / how to reduce bloating around and on your period!
Show notes Soothe herbs Follow me on Instagram!  Menstrual bloating, or any bloating, is no fun. Although our bodies are supposed to change throughout the course of our cycle (we are cyclical beings, so day 1 version of yourself will be different than day 20 of your cycle), it should never be extreme or painful. However, I assumed if you are reading this, that your bloating may be trending towards the unbearable end of the spectrum. If so, no need to stress out because nature is wonderful and provides all of our healing answers. But first, let's cover the basics! Bloating that is hormonally induced, meaning that you have ruled out any other factors (i.e. gut dysbiosis) is very manageable when using the right combination of lifestyle, nutrition, herbal remedies, and targeted supplementation.
