Woman Code Alisa Vitti: An amazing book for all woman to read. Explains how woman’s hormones work, and how to solve problems such as PMS, irregular periods, heavy periods, PCOS, infertility, and low libido. My favorite part is how it explains how woman can learn where there hormone levels are throughout the month and how to plan exercise, eating, and work around that.
Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon: Such a classic. This book is amazing at explaining the importance of cooking and eating a traditional diet. The perfect guide to: soaking grains, nuts, and legumes, making bone broth, making fermented food and drinks, and so much more. This book basically taught me how to cook.
The Hormone Cure by Dr. Sara Gotfried: I am a lover of all things hormones and this is a wonderful resource to figure out what may be going on with yours as well as solutions to the symptoms you may be facing.
Adrenal Fatigue, the 21st Century Stress Syndrome by James Wilson: A very eye opening read on how stress is devastated our health and how to reestablish balance.
The Paleo Cure by Chris Kresser: Chris Kresser is one of my favorite people to learn from. In this book he uses the Paleo diet as a template from which you can tailor a simple yet powerful three-step program-Reset, Rebuild, Revive-to fit your lifestyle, body type, and genetic blueprint. You’ll learn how to eliminate the toxic foods that cause illness and weight gain, how to sleep better, exercise like our ancestors, cultivate pleasure, and vastly improve overall health.

Digestive Wellness by Elizabeth Lipski: The health of your digestive system determines the health of your entire body. This book explains how your digestive system works and what to do when it doesn’t. You’ll find practical solutions to all the common gastrointestinal disorders (and many other conditions) and expert guidance on the newest advances in testing and diagnosis, nutrition, and natural therapies. Plus, you’ll learn how faulty digestion can affect the human body systemically, from migraines and skin issues to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome.
Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler : In my opinion, this is a MUST read for every woman alive. Most of the woman I know have no idea how their body works. This was definitely my case. This book taught me how amazing the monthly cycle is and what is and is not normal. If you are wanting to know about how to do natural birth control or get pregnant, this is such a great resource.
