In this Episode:

Are you moody?  Do you have low sex drive? Unexplained weight gain? Skin Issues? Today, we discuss hormones — the different kinds of hormones and what it looks like when they go out of balance.  We also get into perimonopause and menopause and what to expect.  Hormones impact our sleep, digestion, blood pressure, libido, skin, and it goes on and on.  My intention is to have this information serve as a “hormones 101” so that you can have a foundational understanding of how they work in your body and impact health as many women don’t have the basic information they need. *This is not intended to serve as medical advice and you should always consult with your own health care practitioner before making any changes to your health.

I’ve invited on award winning naturopathic doctor, Dr. Michelle Wolford to educate us.  For nearly a decade, she has run a private multi disciplinary practice in San Diego treating children and adults for a variety of acute and chronic conditions all over the world.  She’s been a guest speaker at Medical Schools, on several radio, blog spot and TV programs in addition to a guest writer for the Journal of Alternative Medicine.

Key Takeaways:

Our hormones regulate everything in our bodies.  It is important to manage our stress and take care of our bodies through nutrition and other means.

Meditate for 10 minutes a day, breathe in fresh air, and do 40minutes of exercise 3-4 times a week.

Dr. Wolford’s 3 Best Tips:

  1. Use castor oil packs to detoxify your liver.
  2. Create a routine around when you go to sleep, wake up, and eat your meals.  The goal is consistency.
  3. Spend 30 minutes every day just for you – where you are unplugged from technology and just breathe.
