How To Resolve Your Irregular Periods, Mood Swings, And Sleepless Nights

Episode 521 56m


Seventy-five percent of women experience daily symptoms due to hormonal imbalances. Some of these symptoms are irritating, like insomnia, sugar cravings, fluid retention, moodiness, and headaches, while others can be more devastating, such as infertility. Often, many of these symptoms are written off as “normal” and just a part of a woman’s cycle or transition into menopause, but the truth is that there are many things we can do to reverse them to live each day more comfortably.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Sara Gottfried about how many women’s health issues can be resolved using a Functional Medicine approach. We discuss how PCOS, debilitating PMS, and other hormonal imbalances often stem from diet and exposure to environmental toxins.

Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness.
