03. Period Liberation Protocol - Chef Bai
I learned through my experience with endo that all healing starts with being authentic.
It’s ultimately because of the willingness to look at the inconvenient truths, and face our shit, that we find our freedom and claim ourselves.
But how do you know what’s fact or fiction in health? How do you begin healing the root cause of painful periods versus symptom treating within the pharma business model?
That’s what we’re going to discuss today, but just before we do that I would like to invite you to invite others to rate the show on Apple or Spotify.
I’m hosting this show because after unraveling all of the medical lies I had been told about Endometriosis, I educated myself, and I was able to heal myself. Whether it's Endometriosis or any other painful disorder labeled as 'chronic', we expose the lesser-known solutions that can heal your mind, body & spirit.
And of course, I made (and continue to make) an ongoing art series about it titled, Every Phase–powerfully illustrating how I healed myself living by the phases of the female cycle infradian rhythm clock. Follow the series by subscribing at meredithochoa.com
Even though I was lied to for years by big pharma, I was able to find experts who helped me achieve the impossible. This space introduces them to you.
Today we are chatting with my endo warrior sister, seasoned chef, holistic nutrition and health coach and creator of the Period Liberation Protocol, Chef Bai. Classically trained at Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco, she uses her culinary expertise to create rich flavors with clean, nourishing ingredients.
She is an advocate for people with chronic health ailments, animal welfare, and the environment. Her own plant-based journey started with her desire to heal her chronic pain from an 18-year battle with endometriosis after exhausting all other options. She furthered her studies with a certification in plant-based nutrition from T. Colin Campbell, Center for Nutrition Studies, and is a certified Health Coach from Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Bailey now hosts virtual corporate wellness classes around the globe, develops recipes for brands and works with individuals + families looking to heal through food. Last year she and her husband Steve taught over 20,000 people in their corporate wellness program about the healing power of food.
She also released her first cookbook 'Cook. Heal. Go Vegan!' which became an #1 Amazon best-seller in 2021. Be sure to tune in to her rapidly growing podcast, The Plant Remedy, featuring interviews on plant-based living with world-renowned chefs, doctors, and entrepreneurs getting real about controversial topics like reversing diseases through a plant-based diet, hormonal health, psychedelics, and so much more.

If there is a woman you know who is struggling with period pain, the foundation of how I healed myself began with reading Womancode & In The Flo by Alisa Vitti.
