I know you all love our Ask the Doctor episodes—we’ve got ones on longevity, happiness, anxiety, gut health, and more—so this is sort of in that vein, but a bit different.
I’ve invited back Dr. Aviva Romm, who was on the Ask the Doctor: Hormone Edition, to do a hormone Q&A. Aviva is my absolute favorite resource for hormone expertise—she’s a Yale-trained MD AND a midwife and herbalist, plus she’s the best-selling author of many books, including her most recent, Hormone Intelligence, which we discuss in this episode.
For the Ask the Doctor episode, we covered a larger overview of hormones, so for this Q&A, I decided to go SUPER pragmatic and actionable, and basically used it as an opportunity to have her solve all of your hormonally-based problems. We talk about:
- Why being hormonal is actually your superpower
- The hormonal causes of and solutions for belly fat, insomnia, hair loss, low energy, acne, migraines, PMS, and more
- Her thoughts on the best way to “detox” your body
- How snacking impacts our hormone health
- What causes PCOS, how to know if you have it, and how she approaches treating it
- What causes endometriosis, how to know if you have it, and how she approaches treating it
- How our guts impact our hormones, our hormones impact our guts—and how to balance both
- Her easy formula for optimal hormone health
We’d both love to hear from you as you’re listening, so screenshot and tag me—I’m @lizmoody—and @dr.avivaromm and tell us what you’re learning or thinking about. And if you want more hormone info, don’t forget to check out the Ask the Doctor: Hormone edition, which will give you even more background and information on your hormones .
