Giving You A Roadmap To Proactive Natural Medicine With Dr. Zen
We are here to deeply connect with soul centered sensuality and sexuality in relationships, business, and life. So you can access your power and remember your true presence.
We have so many amazing things to talk about today. We have Dr. Zen, my friend Alissia who is a fellow mentor and we do so many amazing things in the same community of the beautiful entrepreneurs of women that we have here in Phoenix, Arizona, and Scottsdale.
Dr. Zen is a naturopathic doctor in Scottsdale, Arizona and she has her own private practice and in NMD Wellness of Scottsdale and focuses on women's medicine such as hormone health. According to Alissia:
"Hormones were really talked about only in menopause and now we're kind of in this new age about, let's talk about hormones beforehand, let's talk about fertility, preconception, birth control. You know, a lot of us have been on birth control for God knows how long, and we're now turning around going, Hey, is that the right option for me? Or where should I be going? And so I am so, so humbled and fortunate to get to work with such amazing women who are just in so many different journeys of their life. And that's really what lights me up every single day. I am a really big believer in the importance of putting yourself back into the driver's seat of your own health, really having that education."
Dr. Zen helps patients have that approach to their health where they feel like "I know where I am. I know where I'm going and I know how to get there".
She sees patients in the office through telemedicine and she also has a blog and Instagram because she believes that sometimes just having a conversation is important.
Dr. Zen, Naturopathic Doctor in Scottsdale Arizona and I talk all things proactive wellness, sexual health and more:
Why is proactive natural medicine a way to have a roadmap for your wellness?
What is the difference between focusing on fertility compared to infertility?
How can the medical, health and wellness industry support some of these taboo topics of discussion like our sexual health?

How can you take your power back when it comes to your wellness, birth control, and fertility?
What is the journey of coming off of hormonal birth control or considering to be off of birth control?
How do you intuitively re-connect with your body, your hormones, and your cycle?
What tools can you use to naturally understand your cycle if you do or don’t want to get pregnant?
What’s the difference between Men and Women’s bodies and how they move through their daily life?
What are some things that can cause decreased Libido?
Why should sexual connection and physical intimacy be a priority in your relationships?
What are some of the foundations to stand on in a healthy relationship?
- "I think when it comes to fertility specifically, it's really this focus on infertility instead of fertility...but also want women to feel heard and seen if they're struggling, because so often as women we think that it's always our fault" - Dr. Zen
- "Whenever I see patients for acne or rashes or things, I'm like, your skin is an indicator or a mirror of what's going on internally"
- "...birth control is actually suppressing your hormones that is also affecting your sex drive" Dr. Zen
- "The one thing that 2020 has definitely given us is that beautiful gift of contrast" -Kendall
- "We go through different seasons in our life when our libido may be really high and we want to have sex all the time and it's something that's really fun and inspiring and then there's other times when it's not the number one priority our lives" - Kendall
- "You should always have an open mind. When having a conversation, be realistic that the other person may have the complete opposite thought than you do and it doesn't make it wrong, it just means that you're in a different space or you grew up differently or all of these things. Having that grace, I think, makes a difference in a relationship that understanding that you don't need to be right all the time and sometimes you are right."- Dr. Zen
