There are many health topics considered too taboo to talk about—menstruation being one of them. By ignoring this completely normal part of women’s health we miss out on the ability to empower young girls to become educated, strong women who support communities and positive social change.
Overcoming stigmas and challenging cultural norms is what my guest on this week’s episode of The Doctor’s Farmacy, Miki Agrawal, was born to do. Miki is a successful entrepreneur who creates innovative products to disrupt industries and change perspectives. She co-founded and led THINX, the high-tech, period-proof underwear brand, and most recently founded TUSHY, a company revolutionizing the American bathroom and making bidets mainstream in the US, to support better health for our sensitive private areas and the environment, all at once. Miki is also founder of the gluten-free pizza chain WILD and the author of Do Cool Sh*t and Disrupt-Her. She was recently named Fast Company’s Most Creative People of 2018 and Most Impressive Women Entrepreneurs by Inc. Magazine. She is a also graduate of Cornell University and proud mama of an amazing little boy, Hiro Happy.
