A woman’s hormonal landscape changes dramatically throughout her life. Because of this unique biology, understanding her menstrual cycle and its rhythm can be incredibly useful for optimizing productivity, weight, sex drive, energy, and mood.
On today’s mini-episode, Dhru sits down with Dr. Stephanie Estima to talk about how to eat and work out in a way that honors a woman’s natural cycle in her reproductive years. They also talk about how chronic stress affects women differently than men, the importance of listening to your body, and why loving yourself is one of the most radical things you can do.
Dr. Estima is an expert in female metabolism and body composition. She is a doctor of chiropractic with a special interest in functional neurology, brain metabolism, and the specific application of the ketogenic diet and fasting to female physiology. She is particularly focused on distilling strategies in nutritional proxies, movement, posture, and mindset to actualize human potential, healthspan, longevity, and achievement.
In this episode we dive into:
- The big mistake women make when it comes to their hormonal health
- How the accumulation of low-grade stress impacts metabolic health
- The importance of listening to your body and attuning to your symptoms
- The Estima Method for optimal hormone health
