This episode is a far-back throwback from the beginning of this podcast! While we're discussing topics, such as fertility, pregnancy, birth, and post-partum, vaginal health is also an important conversation to add to the mix.
Dr. Marnie Luck is a naturopathic doctor who has a special interest in digestive issues, women’s health (menopause, menstrual concerns, and fertility) and weight management.
In this episode, Dr. Marnie exposes her ample knowledge about vaginas. The society we live in tends to be close-minded about women’s genitals, imprinting lots of prejudgements in girls from a very young age about how they should and should not relate to their vaginas. As a result, women tend not to have good connections and knowledge concerning their vaginas, ignoring what is and isn't normal and even essential biological aspects of their own vaginas.
Dr. Marnie discloses without shame every detail you want to know about your vagina, how often you should have testings, what is a normal discharge, and even the right terminology, among other interesting data about women’s health that can be related to vaginal health.

Have you ever heard of IV Vitamin Therapy? This is one of the treatments that are offered at the Poppy Clinic, you can receive it as a stand-alone treatment or as part of your holistic health care. IV stands for Intravenous. It is a 40-minute session during which you are administered a customized blend of vitamins intravenously, right into your bloodstream. The advantage of getting your vitamins this way is that the digestive tract is bypassed in order for you to absorb 100% of what you are getting, you are receiving the vitamins directly, and are able to get much higher doses of the vitamins than you would ever be able to get otherwise.
Did you know that 1 of 3 people have a digestive compromise? This means that even if you are eating a great diet or taking all of your vitamins, you might not actually be digesting and absorbing everything. IV Vitamin Therapy is the treatment that helps you absorb 100% of vitamins into your system.
Benefits of IV Vitamin Therapy:
- Boost your immune system
- Heal from chronic disease
- Fight off infections
- Boost your mood
- Improve sleep quality
- Calm your nervous system
