I hear stories every day from clients, from followers, and from women in health related Facebook groups about how their doctor actively prevented them from getting the help they need in one way or another. I've experienced it myself. I moved 6 years ago and had a hard time finding a doctor that didn't want to just give me birth control for my PCOS and after a couple tries I just gave up. I recently decided to find a primary care physician and had a better experience than I expected. It was kind of a wake up call, to be honest. Why do we just give up when we can't find the help we need? Why is it so common for doctors to be resistant to new ideas and alternative therapies? I hate that the medical world is like this. I hate that women have to suffer because of it. So, in today's episode I talk a little bit about how you can advocate for yourself in your doctor's office and what you can do if you feel like you've been treated poorly by a doctor. I also talk about the resource I created in response to the questions I see everyday about finding a doctor that will HELP fertility, and not hurt it. (Remember, fertility isn't just about making babies). If you have a story to share about advocating for yourself, please send it to me at or by sending me a voice message.

Hormone imbalance is often a symptom of a bigger systemic problem and digestive issues can be a huge contributing factor, if not the cause. With so many different diets and food ideologies out there, it can be really hard to determine what's best for your situation and needs. In this episode I'm talking with digestive specialist Laura Martin about hormones and digestive health. We discuss various types of diets, intermittent fasting, intuitive eating, and the foundations of healing the digestive system. Laura Martin is a Certified IBS Nutrition Consultant and founder of Healing to Happy – an online holistic, gut-brain focused company that helps women suffering from IBS and Anxiety to get back to eating normally without fear of FODMAP's. After battling her way through IBS, hypothyroidism, anxiety, hormonal imbalances, and skin issues... she found herself with an unhealthy relationship with food and knew there had to be a better way...   After many failed attempts and lessons learned, she came up with this one method known as the F.R.E.E. method that put her symptoms into remission without following restrictive diets or fancy supplement regimes. And yes, that nutrition routine now includes pizza without running to the bathroom.  By applying this method using food, lifestyle, radical shifts in consciousness, and mindfulness practices + tools she's gone on to help hundreds of women around the globe do the same through her online courses: Signature Gut Recharge Program and 1:1 Gut Accelerator Program.
