Leslie Carol Botha, Women’s Health Educator, author, publisher, and broadcast journalist  is an internationally recognized expert on women’s hormonal health.  Her work emphasizes the significance of the hormone cycle and its profound relationship to women’s psyche. Botha’s 30 years of research demonstrates how hormone changes/fluctuations in the menstrual cycle affect women’s physical, mental and emotional well being.

Botha is a member of the Society for Menstrual Cycle Research, and an advisory board member for the Cycles Research Institute.

In 2006, Botha received the Edward R. Dewey Award for her pioneering research on how women’s hormonal fluctuations affect their behaviors.  The award was granted by the Foundation for the Study of Cycles.

Her research is also featured in a new book titled: The World According to Cycles- How Recurring Forces Can Predict the Future and Change Your Life by Samuel A. Schreiner, Jr., published by Skyhorse Publishing, New York City. Schreiner named Botha “one of the 21st century’s most prominent natural cycle researchers.”

In 2007, Botha received a certificate of study and training in Whole Health and Whole Health Sciences from the National Institute of Whole Health. NIWH has been the pioneer in providing Whole Health Education® and Whole Health Care® since 1977.  The organization is aligned with Harvard, Duke and Vanderbilt Universities and the Mayo Clinic to bring credentialing to health and wellness coaching. The National Institute of Whole Health (NIWH) is a nationally Accredited Provider of Professional Continuing Education and Development programs, endorsed and approved by leading national health care organizations.

Currently Botha and her co-author Sandra H. Chevalier-Batik are developing a health curriculum for  adolescents titled “Girl’s Empowered – Boy’s Empowered: A Comprehensive Curriculum on Adolescent Health.”  The curriculum focuses on menstrual health education within an educational social, political and historical context of women’s worth, value and rights.

Botha and Batik have just released their e-book titled: Understanding Your Mood, Mind and Hormone Cycle (2013);  the first in a series on menstrual health education.

Botha’s and Batik’s work also appears in compilation of women’s works in a book entitled Teenage Girls: The Guide to Health, Wellness & Self-Esteem (2014)

Botha’s spiritual writing on the sacred nature of the menstrual cycle has just been published (2015) in an anthology or writing by other feminist scholars, entitled: She Rises: Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?

Botha is currently the host of her own radio show titled “Holy Hormones Honey – The Greatest Story Never Told” on The Liberty Beacon.  The hour-long show airs every Wednesday at 7 pm ET- 4 pm PT.

Botha is a member of Truth About Gardasil.  She is a part of the growing number of parents, educators and researchers concerned about the potential dangers of Gardasil and Cervarix.  She was one of six women involved in presenting research and data on those dangers to the FDA.

Her concerns lie in the fact that hormone fluctuations and menstrual cycle evaluation are not a part of the study or trial guidelines conducted by the pharmaceutical companies prior to inoculating of girls entering menarche – one of the most fragile times of their lives.

She has been interviewed for print and broadcast media for her research on the importance of women’s hormonal health and her well researched views on the HPV vaccines.
