Growing up, we hear that our hormones shift during puberty but for many of us, that’s the extent of what we are aware of. We are taught that heightened emotions, deeper voices, and the start of our menstrual cycle are the tell-all of becoming a woman. What we lack, is awareness of what our cycle is telling us month-to-month or how to properly support our hormonal shifts through each season. What if I told you that by understanding your hormones, you could gain full control of your overall well-being? Hormones affect everything, and this is what our guest will be unpacking today.
Listeners will gain an understanding of how hormonal imbalance shows up in the body. As well as, how trauma and stress affect hormones, adrenals, and circadian rhythm.
“When you have a healthy circadian rhythm in your body, your 24-hour clock is functioning the way it should.”
Our guest, Laura Erlich is an acupuncturist, herbalist, and author of Feed Your Fertility. Laura will share some incredible insight about what hormones do when we age and what to look out for. You will also get insight on the difference between perimenopause and menopause.
Most importantly, Laura emphasizes on the importance of accepting where you are in your journey. Women will walk away from this episode with a deep understanding of hormones, and how to find a balance without feeling pressure or guilt for where you currently stand.
We hope you enjoy this insightful conversation.
Next up, take a listen to last week’s episode, How to Heal Your Gut.
