My therapist recommended this book to me: WomanCode: Perfect Your Cycle, Amplify Your Fertility, Supercharge Your Sex Drive, and Become a Power Source. The title was so enticing I read it immediately. Through my journey of TTC I’ve gained such a better understanding of how our female bodies work, but this book helped take that understanding to another level. It teaches about the endocrine system and how are bodies are supposed to function. It also teaches how to eat for our cycle to naturally achieve hormonal balance and thus improve our fertility, decrease painful menstrual symptoms or irregular cycles, and increase sex drive. We’ve always been taught to eat based on calories, fat, and losing weight, but this book teaches how to eat for optimal functionality of our female system.
The author also suffered from PCOS and was able to heal herself through the food and lifestyle changes she recommends in the book.
From the jacket flap:
Alisa Vitti will teach you how to support the chemical conversation of your entire endocrine system, from your head to your ovaries.
