Supporting Your Hormones

While it is normal for women to experience highs and lows in their hormones, sometimes we can feel confused and under-informed. This is why I have hormone expert Dr. Brooke Kalanick back on the show today to help you understand your hormones holistically and what you can start, or stop, doing to help support your body best.

Dr. Brooke is exploding with information, explaining the connection between your menstrual cycle, nutrition, exercise level, and hormones, the role cortisol and thyroid levels play in your ability to regulate itself, and why you should be listening to your appetite, cravings, energy, and sleep to hear what your hormones are trying to tell you.

Learn about which environmental and stress factors could be wreaking havoc on your hormones, ways to allow yourself to get to a place unrestricted by strict nutrition rules, and how to support your hormones through perimenopause, menopause and beyond.

Dr. Brooke is all about customizing a solution to fit your needs and shares her foundational approaches to life and wellness which is changing women’s lives with her and Sarah Fragoso’s new book, Hangry. If the title alone resonates with you, you need to listen in on Dr. Brooke’s pillars to success in order to empower yourself to become fully present in life again.

Stop mistaking common symptoms for normal and start getting answers so that you can start feeling better. Are you ready to start listening to your intuition and put your own health first? Share where you are at in your hormone discovery journey in the comments below.

“We shouldn’t be mad at our hormones, we shouldn’t feel like they are betraying us, they are trying so hard to stay in balance in our crazy, bonkers, toxic, busy, overstressed world.” (14:05)

“It’s not as pretty, it’s not as easy for me to just say ‘you have got this hormone issue so you need to eat this many grams this many times a day’. For a lot of women, it’s a little more nuanced than that.” (32:07)

“Most women have multiple hormone issues going on and so we really need to take them in a systematic fashion and deal with the stuff that makes you hangry first.” (39:48)

“Be who you are authentically and unapologetically. Because when we are not, I really think that is the most, and Sarah would agree with me, the most stressful thing for a woman.” (51:57)
