Description

When a hormonal imbalance is present in your body, did you know the symptoms can vary considerably? Symptoms can include anything from fatigue, depression, anxiety, weight gain, low libido, hair loss, heavy bleeding, fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, and more.

 

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Shawn Tassone, a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist through the American Board of Integrative Medicine. He holds a medical degree, in addition to a PhD in mind-body medicine. In his 20 years of practice, Dr. Tassone has seen over 40,000 women and is a highly regarded patient advocate. In this podcast, we discuss how to address the root cause of hormonal imbalances, how our hormones impact our brain health, and the importance of not just treating symptoms, but your body as a whole. We also talk about the mind-body connection and how our mindset and spiritual health are even more powerful than the foods that we eat. Dr. Tassone has made it his life’s mission to educate women about hormones and how to balance them through an integrative approach.

I recently asked my Dr to check my hormone levels and, sure enough, everything came back "normal." how does this explain the crazy fatigue I've been experiencing the past year? how do we find drs that specialize in holistic medicine and would health insurance even cover something like that? I have no idea to whom I'm asking these questions, lol, just thinking out loud I suppose.
