In today's episode we are going to be talking about Understanding and Healing Hypothalamic Amenorrhea. To help me discuss this topic I am joined by Kersten who loves training outside and lifting kettlebells. She has suffered from HA in the past and is now helping other women overcome excessive dieting, over training and healing their HA.
