I caught up with Keith (Tommo is his nickname) last week and we discussed women's hormones. Tommo has been involved in the health, fitness and wellbeing industry for over 20 years and is an avid Ray Peat fan. He has his masters in endocrinology and is passionate about delivering services that resolve pain, energy, digestion, sleep, mood and other hormone-related issues to get people functioning at their best.
In this episode, we talk about female hormones and how there is a huge misconception that when a woman experiences painful and irregular periods or menopausal symptoms that she needs more estrogen. I remember when I was younger and I went to the doctors with heavy and painful periods they just put me on the pill! We discuss the implications of low calorie, quick-fix diets on women's hormones and what you can do to educate yourself so you can balance your hormones, improve your sleep, energy, mood, digestion and sex drive as well as build a body you love! Looking better starts with healing the inside.
