Tamra MerciecaPodcastLeave a Comment

Journaling is a beautiful, and ridiculously cheap way of processing challenges and traumas and simply making sense of life.

Ep.9 Give up nagging and have a Love Sandwich instead!

The spiritual power of menstruation

What tampons are doing to your womb

Tamra MerciecaBlogs, Sexual Health4 Comments

Tampons. They’re convenient. But are they healthy? No. Even the natural ones are doing harm to your uterus.
