About The Panel:
One half of The Happy Balance, and co-author of ‘The Happy Balance: The original Plant-Based Approach for Complete Hormone Health’.
Megan is a nutrition and holistic health coach currently studying to be a nutritional therapist, wellness enthusiast, recipe developer and voice behind the blog Plant-Based Londoner. Megan’s recipes and writing have been featured on Hip & Healthy, Active in Style, Sheerluxe, Vegan Food and Living Magazine and The Feed Feed.
Maisie Hill is the highly qualified expert who has over a decade of experience as a women’s health practitioner. Feeling frustrated and sad that few of her clients had been taught much
about their reproductive system or menstrual cycle, and constantly hearing ‘why has nobody told me this before’, she decided to write the ultimate menstrual handbook, Period Power.
Period Power is the menstrual bible detailing everything about your cycle that you
didn’t realise you needed to know. 90% of women experience symptoms of PMS, a syndrome which features a wide range of signs and symptoms and yet there’s an enduring lack of understanding about what it actually is, and an unacceptably meagre range of treatment options.
Full of essential (yet worryingly poorly taught in school) information about the inner workings of our reproductive system; Period Power provides the scientific background for why we feel on top of the world, capable, confident and sexy for parts of each month, then the opposite for the rest, presenting a blueprint for getting to grips with our cycles once and for all.
Covering everything to do with your periods, as well as birth control, infertility, pregnancy,
motherhood and the perimenopausal years, Period Power lays out Maisie’s bible – the cycle strategy – the secret weapon when it comes to improving your happiness and life, particularly your sleep, diet, relationships, career and health.
