Reclaiming your Relationship with your Cycle with Alisa Vitti

On today’s episode, Alexandra speaks with author and women’s health expert Alisa Vitti!

Alisa is a trusted integrative nutritionist, "hormone whisperer", and best-selling author of WomanCode and In The Flo (Harper Collins). As a pioneer in the women’s biohacking space, Alisa has figured out why over 40% of women are struggling with hormone issues and experiencing burnout. Women are being left out of fitness, nutrition, and medical research, leading them to use popularized trends to try to help themselves, but because those solutions aren't designed for them, they are getting sick. Alisa teaches women about their second biological rhythm - the Infradian Rhythm - that governs the brain, metabolism, immune, stress, and reproductive systems - and is just as important, if not more so, than the circadian rhythm (the process that manages sleep). To support the Infradian Rhythm, Alisa coined the term and created the concept of “cycle syncing,” a practice that involves incorporating specific micronutrient-rich foods at various points of the menstrual cycle to support the body’s natural production of hormones and its ability to purge any excess. She says estrogen dominance is the biggest culprit when it comes to PMS, so naturally eliminating the extra amount is key to healing. Along with the inclusion of specific foods at the right times, Alisa also recommends particular workouts, stress management techniques, and even business strategies, depending on the current phase of your cycle (intense cardio might be beneficial at one time of the month, but not at another, for example).

In this episode, you’ll hear:

  • Ideas on the birth control pill as ‘old tech’ vs. the ‘new tech’ options that are out there today to help women control and regulate their options for preventing pregnancy.

  • The difference between the circadian and infradian rhythm and how disrupting either rhythm can lead to disease and disruptions within the body.

  • How to prepare your body for pregnancy by staying rich with micronutrients and honoring your infradian rhythm, and examples on how you can do so, even starting a decade or so before trying to get pregnant.

  • Ideas and examples on discussing body types, weight, size, cycles, and hormones with your friends, children, and daughters.

  • And more!
