In this episode I chat to Dr Nat Kringoudis, doctor of Chinese medicine, Acupuncturist, Author, Speaker and all-round natural fertility expert. She’s also the founder of Melbourne women’s health clinic, The Pagoda Tree, where her powerful fusion of Western and Chinese medicine, has helped thousands of women change the way they think about their health. Nat is also the creator of Yo’Nuts and producer of HealthTalks TV. And bonus, I get to call her my friend – someone that has been there for me since the start of our fertility journey.
Her latest book, Beautiful You shows you how your hormones affect sexuality, physical health and appearance and mental wellbeing.
Your body is talking … It’s time to listen!
This is Nat’s latest (and very important) take home message and it’s a reminder to take back our power and accept the responsibility to get to know our bodies lies with us – not our doctor. She opens up the discussion on understanding your own body, balancing hormones and sexual empowerment. PLUS you can learn how to make your hormones happier than a Pharrell Williams song!

(08:40) why quick-fix pills spell disaster for your long term health
