Can traveling a lot make you sick? 

Is Biohacking really a guy-centric industry that leaves female hormones completely out of the conversation? 

In this episode I welcome Aggie Lal, author of the new book “Biohack like a Woman” to discuss these topics and so much more.

As a former travel influencer, she’s going to share her health struggles and what led her to hack herself back to health.

    • Is a vegan or vegetarian diet making you sick? (6:03)
    • Why embracing FAT might be the missing key to unlocking optimal health in many diets (7:45)

    • Why a woman’s period is their superpower (20:14)
    • The underlying cause behind the escalating prevalence of infertility issues in women and men (26:11)
