Too many women accept that painful and heavy periods are a natural part of life. Although we don’t talk about our periods much, you’ve probably had enough conversations with female family and friends to have come to the conclusion that, in westernised societies, it’s pretty normal to have long, heavy periods.

I’d love to take a moment to introduce myself I’m Catriona Walsh, a nutrition and lifestyle coach, or NLC, although for years I worked as a doctor in the NHS before that.

Join me for this podcast, where the lovely Emily Giles of Untaming interviews me on the power of food. We talked about diet for all ages, but focused in on childhood nutrition.

In fact all of my 1-to-1 coaching clients have to send me a 3 day diet diary that includes everything they eat and drink.
