Kimberly and Alisa discuss female biohacking as an under-researched field, leaving many women feeling that they aren’t meeting society’s demands. While culture largely operates according to the 24-hour cycle (circadian), the 28-day cycle (infradian) significantly impacts women’s energy, productivity, and overall health. Alisa demonstrates the importance of women understanding their menstrual cycles in relation to food, fitness, and time management to sustain optimal health and vitality.
