Lucky you! Here is a bonus podcast that is an audio recording of a webinar I did about how inflammation messes up our hormones. Ladies, this is the biggest deal. Inflammation affects hormone effects at the genetic level so you can have enough hormone around but it doesn’t create the desired effect. Read: normal lab tests but you still feel like garbage. Let alone if you have low hormone levels (i.e. testosterone, estrogen, thyroid, etc.) plus inflammation. Yikes right?
I dive into how this all works in terms of the impact of inflammation on your hormones ranging from cortisol to thyroid to insulin, as well as estrogen and progesterone. Special attention is paid to inflammation for women with PCOS. We have it rough, real rough.  Not only do we have smoldering, low levels of inflammation as a baseline with PCOS but we get so easily locked into chronic inflammation. This is actually a root cause of PCOS and it won’t be solved by just eating less carbs.  Inflammation affects all other hormone imbalances in PCOS and it is also made worse by most PCOS related hormone issues like high androgens and insulin resistance. Many vicious cycles in this inflammatory mess.

BUT when you understand this unique interplay, you can take great strides to better balance your female hormones by addressing inflammation. If you feel you’ve tried everything this episode is for you. If you feel confused by PCOS this episode is for you. If you have female hormones and live in the Western World, this is for you!

This is perhaps our most lovely episode yet. We had the beautiful Dr Mariza Snyder on to talk about how to use essential oils from both a clinical and practical perspective. Dr Mariza is a Functional Medicine Physician with a specialty in women’s hormones and author of the Smart Mom’s Guide To Essential Oils – but rest assured ladies, this book is for all women not just the mamas!

We got  answers to your burning questions about essentials oils: what’s safe when it comes to putting them in your mouth and on your skin, how to use them with children and this gem: is it better to eat them or breath them in?  You’ll even get the inside scoop on Dr Mariza’s favorite, never leave home without them, what she calls the Swiss Army Knife of Essential Oils combo. You will come away with actionable steps that you can use to enhance your wellness rituals as well as have one more tool in your toolbox of natural remedies.
