Your immune system impacts your hormones. Estrogen, for example, is linked to a stronger immune system while testosterone has the opposite effect. If you are constantly sick or low energy, you need to take a look at your hormone levels! In this episode, I dive into the hormone-immune connection and ways to boost your health.

Today, I want to cover some interesting information on iodine that goes way beyond what it does for the thyroid. Most of your iodine is stored in your thyroid. However, iodine is important for many other organs. The RDAs for iodine in the US are 150 mcg. But, in Japan, on average, people consume 1000 to 3000 mcg of iodine daily. They also have fewer problems associated with iodine deficiency than we do in the US. That being said, excess iodine can create just as many problems as a deficiency in iodine. I think it's most beneficial to get the iodine you need from food. Shellfish and sea kelp are rich in iodine. But there is also iodine in eggs, dairy, iodized salt, and sea salt. Unless you consume foods rich in iodine, either from the sea or from vegetables grown on the coastline, chances are you're not getting enough iodine in your diet. Iodine may help with various conditions, including: • Estrogen dominance • Heavy periods • Fibrocystic breasts • Ovarian cysts • Endometriosis • Fibroids • Prostate enlargement • PCOS • Cystic acne • TB • Croup • Asthma • Toenail fungus • Warts and skin tags • Thyroid conditions • Weight gain • Brain fog • Feeling cold (excessively) • Dry skin and hair • Constipation • Depression Top causes of iodine deficiency: • Consuming excessive amounts of raw cruciferous vegetables • Consuming millet, soy, or sweet potatoes • The vegan diet • Pregnancy and lactation • Low-salt diets • Fluoride • Bromide • Perchlorate in water • Nitrates
“Insulin resistance causes PCOS, which leads to irregular periods, excessive hair growth, and sometimes infertility. Treatment should address insulin resistance and hormonal imbalances, like progesterone deficiency and thyroid dysfunction, tailored to each person's unique symptoms.”The world of medicine has long focused on managing diseases and prescribing for symptoms. But what if we could prevent diseases in the first place? That's where hormone health comes in.Our special guest today is Dr. Terri DeNeui, Founder of Evexias Health Solutions. In this episode, we cover everything you need to know about hormones, bioidenticals, and pellets. We also talk about how to navigate hormonal issues while dealing with PCOS, endometriosis, and infertility. Learn why hormones get a bad rap and how Dr. DeNeui is leading the change to dispel this misinformation. If optimizing your health, understanding hormone balance, and achieving well-being are priorities for you, then tune in to Episode 83 of the Gutsy Health Podcast! Make sure to check out Dr. Neui's book, "Hormone Havoc," for even more invaluable insights, and sign up for Jared Price's class on Hormone Balance in the links below.Exceptional Highlights:Hormones like testosterone and estrogen are crucial for both men and women. Testosterone can significantly reduce inflammation and support brain health, particularly for women experiencing symptoms like depression and anxiety.The symptoms of low thyroid and low testosterone can often overlap. It is important to recognize that thyroid health also influences mood, and it's important to consider it in depression management.For young adults in their twenties, addressing diet, nutrition, and gut health is the initial step in managing hormonal issues before considering hormone replacement therapy.Show Highlights: 15:41 - How Dr. Terri DeNeui Started Treating Patients by Hormone Optimization21:46 - The Importance of Understanding Testosterone in Women26:52 - Is Your Body Tired or Brain Tired?

Hi, my friends, I hope you are having a most awesome day! I invited back one of our most favorite guests, Abby Langer, a Toronto-based registered dietitian and the author of the best-selling book, Good Food, Bad Diet. If you haven't met Abby yet, here's a quick rundown; - She is the author of the bestselling book, Good Food, Bad Diet. - She is a total gangsta when it comes to myth-busting. Like straight up in her blogs, on her social media, in the national news organization, and on our podcast. She has no problem calling out the charlatans and dares us to look at the truth. #truthteller - She's funny and wicked smart. And she cusses, which makes me laugh. Here are some of the topics we covered in this episode; - Gut health (yep, those supplements are a LIE). - Diet Coke will kill you (again, another LIE). - Can you get enough estrogen from food (nope!). We also talk about the new weight loss drugs (Wegovy and Mounjaro) and how they are changing the world, how changing your diet is so much more than just changing your food, and loads more. If you have any time, I would LOVE for you to listen to Abby. I am so excited to share her knowledge, education, and her sense of humor with you. She is amazeballs! One more thing, please continue to send me your ideas, comments, and suggestions (Abby Langer was one of them!). YOU are why I do what I do. Love you, Lors xoxo PS: If you want to follow Abby on social, her Instagram is @langernutrition, Twitter - @langernutrition, Facebook – Abby Langer Nutrition.
Let's talk about benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. This means a person has an enlarged prostate gland. Symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia: • Frequent urination (especially at night) • A weak stream • Dribbling after urination • A sensation that you can't fully empty your bladder Excess estrogen increases the size of the prostate. Estrogen also increases prolactin, which can increase the size of the prostate. Estrogen is a byproduct of testosterone in both females and males. To convert testosterone to estrogen, you need an enzyme called aromatase. The testicles and fat cells make aromatase. Phytoestrogens can mimic estrogen, but not very much. To shrink the prostate naturally, we want to inhibit aromatase to decrease estrogen production. Top things that increase aromatase: • Age • Body fat • Insulin • High-carb diets • Alcohol • Whole grains • Hormone replacement therapy • Birth control pills Things that decrease aromatase: • Cruciferous vegetables • White button mushrooms (sautéed) • Flaxseed • Green tea • Citrus peel In addition to losing weight with Healthy Keto®, reducing insulin, and consuming cruciferous vegetables, you can try a fantastic natural remedy for an enlarged prostate that involves citrus peel. The best natural remedy to support prostate health: Add a whole lemon and a glass of water to a blender, and blend it for about 30 seconds. Then, blend again with about five to ten drops of liquid stevia or 1/2 to 1 cup of blueberries. You can have this at any time of day—enjoy!

Chris and Jonathan talk to Michelle Cohen, MD, CCFP, FCFP, an assistant professor at Queen University's Department of Family Medicine and a staff physician at Lakeview Family Health Team. Dr. Cohen provides gender-affirming care and is here to dispel myths surrounding trans people, especially the panic around the mistaken idea that children are being rushed to transition. If you have a child who is questioning their gender identity, make sure to listen to this episode before reading what the media typically reports on trans issues. Of note, the “1 Million March for Children” is scheduled to take place on September 20th across Canada. It is part of our current anti-trans panic, with the organizers claiming to “peacefully protest against the push for LGBT ideology in schools.” (2:10) What is gender-affirming care and how easy is it to access? (8:39) Gender vs. sex (13:44) Estrogen is not just for women (19:08) Children are not being rushed through trans medical care (23:15) Puberty blockers are not just for trans teens (28:27) Transition surgeries are not happening for teens under the age of legal majority (31:31) Is “trans” the new “emo?” (35:30) Intersex people and non-consensual surgeries (37:24) The media fuels the trans panic, which has ties to the anti-vaccine movement (42:46) Canadian transphobia: imported or homegrown?

Memorable Quotes "I was a woman in my 40s fighting with my body weight, fighting estrogen dominance, And I had pretty significant inflammatory activity because I was constantly fighting this inflammatory response. And I have an autoimmune history. So, to me, it felt like every time I was trying to put out the fire, somebody else was on the other side pouring gasoline on it and causing it to burn more. And so, it was just this constant sort of battle is how it felt to me." – Betty Murray "And I am a proponent for progesterone replacement and estrogen replacement, even testosterone in women, because, you know, I know that aging is the number one cause of risk factor for all cause mortality. So, if I can slow the aging process by retaining natural hormone balance, that's always better." – Betty Murray Website Living Well Dallas Hormone Reset Betty Murray Socials Facebook Instagram

And we have all the biochemical data on the pathways that they target. But even the drug companies know how good these are for the different pathways. But the reason they don't use them is because they have poor bioavailability and you can't get them into the system. So we need some way to cheat the normal absorption and increase it" [6:28] -Dr.Shade "You need something that moves toxins and something that catches toxins. We call it push catch or mobilize and bind. The catch the toxins is simple. Those are what we call the binders. The most characteristic of them, and simplest of them is activated charcoal."

After episode 64 of the podcast, I had many listeners reach out to me to express their frustration over the lack of healthcare providers in their area who were in the know in the latest in hormone therapy treatments and protocols. When the company Winona contacted me to speak to one of their medical providers, I jumped at the chance to bring our listeners a possible option to fill a void in their quest to feel better and be their best.As telemedicine becomes more and more commonplace, many doctors are seeing it as vehicle to reach more patients and to broaden the conversation and community, especially when it comes to women's health issues.When Cat Brown, D.O., was doing her medical training, she was encouraged to pursue the family practice route as part of her Army commitment, but she found her true love was obstetrics and gynecology. This do-it-all mom and current OBGYN hospitalist decided to join the medical team at Winona in 2021. Winona is a company revolutionizing the treatment of menopause to help women get the solutions they need. They aim to empower, educate, and treat women throughout the entirety of their menopause journey. Winona offers doctor-prescribed, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy that is backed by science and shipped directly to your door.Check out Winona here: https://winona.pxf.io/oq5OPEIn this episode Dr. Cat Brown and I discuss:- Cat's path to becoming an OBGYN- The obvious and not so obvious symptoms of menopause- The data on hormone therapy and alzheimer's- The role of cortisol and how to minimize its effect- Is estrogen dominance really a thing?- Oral vs. topical hormone therapy - deciding who gets what form- How DHEA fits into the treatment regimen- Blood and saliva hormone tests and why they may not be reliable- The future of telemedicine- Cat's words of advice for midlife womenFollow Asking for a Friend on Social media outlets:https://www.instagram.com/askingforafriend_pod/https://www.facebook.com/askforafriendpod/Please provide a review and share.

30. Can Estrogen Cause Breast Cancer? I loved this interview with my naturopathic oncologist, Dr. Laura James. She is a wealth of information and was a great support to me during my breast cancer battle. We discussed estrogen's role in breast cancer and how too much can be problematic. According to Dr. James, excess estrogen (we pick up a lot of additional estrogen from using plastic and cosmetics) may encourage cancer growth. However, she states that the "jury is still out" on whether estrogen causes cancer. We also talk about consuming soy products (spoiler alert, I eat soy!) and if some soy products are better than others. We also discussed a few products I use and that Dr. James recommends for those gosh-darn hot flashes! Her website is a powerful resource for anyone fighting breast cancer or trying to avoid it! Visit LauraJamesND.com. For the Hot Flash supplement created by Dr. James, visit her website above or click here! About Dr. Laura James: Dr. Laura James is a naturopathic oncologist in private practice in Bellingham, WA. She is trained in safely managing complementary and alternative therapies for cancer patients undergoing conventional cancer treatments. She provides complementary medicine consultations regarding whole foods nutrition, botanical medicine, nutritional supplements, and lifestyle modifications to attain optimum health during cancer treatment and after. She founded Red Cedar Wellness Center, an interdisciplinary integrative health clinic for adults in Bellevue, in 2002, and acted as medical director through 2018. Dr. James has a bachelor's degree from Tufts University in Boston, and her naturopathic medicine doctorate from Bastyr University in Seattle. She is a Fellow of the American Board of Naturopathic Oncology. She has served on the Board of Team Survivor Northwest, and as adjunct faculty at Bastyr University's Center for Natural Health. She collaborates with major medical institutions around the Puget Sound area regarding implementation of integrative medicine programs for cancer patients. She is a sought-after speaker for local and national organizations, including the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Evergreen Healthcare, Overlake Hospital Medical Center, Cancer Lifeline, and the Susan G. Komen Foundation. This episode is sponsored in part by ButcherBox. I love using Bison! It's very nutrient dense and contains conjugated linoleic acid (I know, what the heck does that mean?), which means Bison has anti-inflammatory properties. Here are the other reasons why I love using Bison in place of ground beef: Higher amounts of omega three fatty acids. More b12, zinc, iron, and selenium than beef. Some studies show it's got four times the vitamin E compared to beef. Lower in calories and cholesterol. It is lower fat, so it will cook faster than ground beef. My friends at BB are offering a deal that they've never offered to anyone! I had to say "pretty please" a couple of times, and guess what? It worked! I can't tell you how long they will offer this deal to me, but here it is:

If you already have one of those kinds of cancers, I'm going to give you the latest data on when it is OK to take estrogen, and when is not OK to take estrogen.

Say what?! Yeah! In fact, today is the last Super Blue Moon until 2037! According to space.com "the term "Blue Moon" has nothing to do with color, instead referring to either two moons occurring in the same calendar month (as in this case), or the third full moon in a season that has four full moons. A supermoon, meanwhile, refers to a full moon that occurs when the moon is closer to Earth in its orbit, resulting in a slightly larger and brighter appearance. " But, that's beside the point. The point is FULL MOONS...any full moons...have a significant impact on women's hormones. That's a fact and in today's episode, I discuss at the surface, what this means to you!ENJOY!
Mithra is shaking up the stagnant women's health market with a brand new estrogenic compound. E4, or estetrol, is a natural estrogen produced by the human fetus during pregnancy, and could represent a major breakthrough in contraceptive and menopause care.
Question: What is the relationship between copper and estrogen? Short Answer: Estrogen moves copper from the mother's bloodstream to the fetus during pregnancy. Its action at the intestines is poorly understood but I believe estrogen and progesterone interact to promote intestinal copper absorption. Maintaining pregnancy-level hormones while not pregnant poses a risk of promoting too much absorption of copper from food without transferring it to a growing baby. Copper status should be monitored when using supplemental hormones to avoid copper toxicity. This is a clip from a live Q&A session open to CMJ Masterpass members.

In this podcast, I'll put estrogen to the test, and prove that it definitely causes endometrial uterine cancer.

Menopause and Hormones in the Modern Era AKA: Why the Boomers Should be Pissed This is a lecture I gave for the Society of Women in Urology about hormones. If you like this episode also check out number 197. Genitourinary syndrome of menopause Men at age 60 have more estrogen in their bodies then women Why I don't do a loading dose of vaginal estrogen. The problem with the vaginal estrogen labeling by the FDA. How the nation used estrogen prior to the Women's Health Initiative Scare. I explain why the WHI study was created and what question it was trying to answer. Myth: you have to be a year without a period to be on hormones. I break down the three concerns about progestin and breast cancer from the WHI 1) Was the placebo arm flawed 2) Was it the synthetic progestin and now we use bioidentical 3) Maybe progestin increases risk but it is small and perhaps benefits still outweigh risk as breast cancer is so curable and all the other benefits are worth the small increased risk I discuss the “critical window” hypothesis and “healthy cell” hypothesis and why hormones are recommended to be started “early” in menopause which means less than ten years. Why I think the Boomers should be pissed. Vaginal estrogen for all and get an okay from your Best practices - If you have a uterus, with systemic estrogen you need a progestin - You can continue hormones for life as long as your benefit > risks - Vaginal bleeding after menopause is never normal - If there is an FDA approved product use it instead of compounded - Checking hormones is often not necessary - One size does not fit all What about hormones for prevention? On a national level the answer is no. But everyone needs their own analysis. National guidelines on how to give testosterone to women for low desire. Hormones: are we being equitable to all genders in regards to hormones. NAMS 2022 guidelines: According to NAMS, “the benefits of hormone therapy outweigh the risks for most healthy symptomatic women who are aged younger than 60 years and within 10 years of menopause onset.” For women with primary ovarian insufficiency and premature or early menopause who are at higher risk of bone loss, heart disease, and cognitive or affective disorders, “hormone therapy can be used until at least the mean age of menopause unless there is a contraindication to its use.” Where is the black box warning on alcohol? What about lasers for GSM? Where are we on removing the FDA black box warning on vaginal estrogen? My thoughts on online hormone companies. Estrogen plays a role in the gut microbiome and may affect the risk of osteoporosis. Our podcast sponsor today is AG1. Use AG1 to build a foundation for better health.
