Episode #285: Period to Pause with Amanda Laden
Amanda Laden is a women’s health advocate who is dedicated to changing an outdated system. She is the founder and CEO of Period to Pause, a leading platform for elevating people’s voices in their own health, healthcare system, and well-being.
Her mission is to help women and other individuals to use their V.O.I.C.E. to change a system that wasn’t set up by or for them and to leverage the power of story to see the humanity in all of us. Amanda spent decades being undiagnosed with a disease called adenomyosis, a disease which caused immense chronic pain, cost her the opportunity to have children, and years of suffering.
Once Amanda was diagnosed and learned that she could have taken measures to reduce it, but the lack of diagnosis was the result of a system of the medical industrial complex and the money-making machine of IVF. It infuriated her, causing her to dig deeply into women’s issues and uncover hidden truths as well as new information that all of us need to know.
Amanda shares her story along with valuable tips and golden nuggets that I know share my story as well as those of others so that we take back out power to advocate for much-needed change.
