Ženský pohlavní hormon estrogen zřejmě chrání ženy nejen před těžším průběhem covidu-19, ale i dalších virových onemocnění. Vyplývá to ze zjištění českých odborníků Univerzity Karlovy, které zveřejnil vědecký časopis International Journal of Molecular Sciences.
In this episode, I am joined by Dr. David Sinclair, tenured Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and an expert researcher in the field of longevity. Dr. Sinclair is also the author of the book Lifespan: Why We Age & Why We Don't Have To, and the host of the Lifespan Podcast, which launches January 5, 2022. In this interview, we discuss the cellular and molecular mechanisms of aging and what we all can do to slow or reverse the aging process. We discuss fasting and supplementation with resveratrol, NAD, metformin, and NMN. We also discuss the use of caffeine, exercise, cold exposure, and why excessive iron load is bad for us. We discuss food choices for offsetting aging and promoting autophagy (clearance of dead cells). And we discuss the key blood markers everyone should monitor to determine your biological versus chronological age. We also discuss the future of longevity research and technology. This episode includes lots of basic science and specific, actionable protocols, right down to the details of what to do and when. By the end, you will have in-depth knowledge of the biology of aging and how to offset it.

Menopause and perimenopause shouldn't be something you just power through, yet that's the way that many women deal with their hormone or energy issues. There's a better way, and it doesn't involve being afraid of estrogen and hormone therapy. Dr. Shawn Tassone answers your questions on cancer, estrogen, hormones, and health, and talks about why the narrative matters in getting to the root cause of a patient's problems. [3:05] Being a man in the arena of women's health gives him a different perspective. As the author of The Hormone Balance Bible, Shawn helps women transform their body and life during perimenopause and menopause. [4:10] Shawn found that if he could share stories of hormonal archetypes with his patients, it connects much better than just raw data. It gives women a starting point to get the information they are looking for and points them in the right direction to learn more. [5:50] Hormone issues can feel very isolating, like you're not being acknowledged. Hearing the stories of other people and how it affected them is affirming. [6:20] If 10,000 men's penises fell off tomorrow, there would be a national outrage and inquiry. But when hundreds of thousands of women are complaining of endometriosis, pelvic pain, or fibroids, they are told that it's just what happens when they get older. [8:10] The more women physicians that experience the menopausal period of life the more natural options and reception that women will get in our culture. [8:45] Speak up and share what's on your mind. There is always one next right step and the answer is never “come back next year and I'll check again.” In the case of perimenopause and menopause, there is always a next right step for being healthier next year than you are now. [10:50] Half of Shawn's patients bring labs from other physicians that say everything is normal. You can't just look at the numbers. You have to look at the person and how they personally feel. The narrative part of your patient's history matters. [12:10] Shawn tells the story of a mother run ragged trying to maintain and support her family and how the narrative of the saboteur helped her understand her situation. Women have a tendency to power through painful sex or exhaustion or stress. [15:40] Shawn's mother passed away from ovarian cancer and that started his own journey to learn how hormones influenced the situation. Oncologist's jobs are to help you live longer. They aren't particularly interested in quality of life. [19:10] When it comes to cancer, it's always important to try to identify the root cause whether it was a hormone disruptor or toxic exposure. With every single patient that Dr. Anna has seen with cancer, the issue was never their own natural production of hormones. [21:10] There are a number of factors when it comes to cancer. Shawn will typically do a genetic test to identify their individual risk as well as their genetic risk. [23:50] There is a clean way to do keto and a dirty way to do keto. The keto green diet has shown to have improvements on multiple health markers as quickly as two weeks in. [24:40] For women in menopause who've had cancer and have restrictions around estrogen, the treatment is piecemeal. If the issue is vaginal dryness, the recommendation is Julva. If it's overall health, Shawn points them to a macha product or fish oils and magnesium. [28:10] It's important for healthcare providers to communicate with each other. Dr. Anna had a patient that had been treated for breast cancer and had a Vitamin D hydroxy level of 11, where the optimal number is closer to 80. This was a major failure on the part of her healthcare team since Vitamin D is a key hormone player. [31:15] Estrogen is crucial in slowing bone loss while also maintaining brain, cardiovascular, and skin health. If your quality of life is impacted negatively because you're afraid of hormones, you're putting the cart in front of the horse. [33:05] There is a study that is ongoing that looks at the effect of hormones like estrogen on rates of cancer and it looks like there is no increased risk of breast cancer. The media has demonized estrogen to the detriment of both women and men. [34:10] Vitamin D doesn't make you feel any different, but it is helpful for the long term. The silent factors like Vitamin D levels are often the most overlooked. The cancer we get from a lack of sun exposure is much worse than anything you can get from too much sun exposure. [35:30] Hormone imbalances can make you into an entirely different person. Fixing your hormones can have near immediate results where you feel considerably better over the course of a week. Add in vitamins and supplements which work over a long period of time and you have a solid protocol. [37:45] At one point, progesterone was only prescribed to protect against uterine cancer. Shawn likes and prescribes progesterone for a variety of reasons, whether or not the patient has a uterus.

Hormone therapy for menopause is rife with confusion, fear, misunderstanding, and outright misinformation. Even doctors, who are often relying on long debunked research, can be at a loss to help women make educated choices for their health, well-being, and performance during this time. This week's guests, Drs. Avrum Bluming and Carol Tavris, authors of Estrogen Matters go to great lengths to describe the real risks (or lack thereof) and myriad benefits of hormone therapy for women in their menopausal years, as well as how to choose among the various formulations. Their goal: Arm every woman with all the information she needs to make an informed, educated decision for her personal menopausal needs. You can learn more about them and their work and buy their book at estrogenmatters.com. Avrum Bluming, MD, is a hematologist and medical oncologist, and a Master of the American College of Physicians, an award bestowed on fewer than 500 of the 100,000 board-certified internists in the United States. He is Emeritus Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of Southern California and a former senior investigator for the National Cancer Institute. Carol Tavris, PhD, is a social psychologist who has written widely about psychological science. Her trade books include Anger; The Mismeasure of Woman; and, with Elliot Aronson, Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me). She has won numerous awards for her science writing and contributions to skepticism and gender equity. **Support the Podcast** InsideTracker: 25% off at insidetracker.com/feisty Nuun Hydration: 30% off at nuunlife.com with the code HITPLAY Previnex: 15% off your first order with code HITPLAY at https://www.previnex.com/ Bonafide: 20% off your first purchase when you subscribe to any product with code HITPLAY at https://hellobonafide.com/
Did you know that our lab results are set up to say either healthy or unhealthy? There is no inbetween. According to my next guest Laini Gray, the inbetween is where we find our "Superstar" hormone level which is a much tighter range. It will make you have more energy, little to no hot flashes and be able to poop regularly! We discuss all the lab tests you should get, our thyroid, alcohol, sugar, gut health and how all of it affects our hormones.
SHR # 2805:: Is This Why Post-Menopausal Women Have A Hard Time Losing Weight? - Dr. Holly A. Ingraham Ph.D. - Estrogen depletion in rodents and humans leads to inactivity, fat accumulation and type 2 diabetes, underscoring the conserved metabolic benefits of estrogen that inevitably decrease with age. In rodents, the pre-ovulatory surge in 17β-estradiol (E2) temporarily increases energy expenditure to coordinate increased physical activity with peak sexual receptivity. Here we report that a subset of estrogen-sensitive neurons in the ventrolateral ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus projects to arousal centers in the hippocampus and hindbrain, and enables estrogen to rebalance energy allocation in female mice.
On today's show, I was joined by Dr. Jeffery Nelson. We discussed all things hormones with a heavy emphasis on women's health. We talked progesterone, estrogen, thyroid and the biggest difference between synthetic and bio-identical hormones. Jeffrey S. Nelson, D.O., graduated with a B.S. in human biology from Brigham Young University and then received his D.O. from Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Nelson completed his residency in Family Medicine at St Louis University Hospital in St Louis, MO and Scott Air Force Base in Belleville, IL. He practiced family medicine and aerospace medicine in Germany from 2004 to 2010 for the United States Air Force and managed the NASA space shuttle emergency medical response team in Europe. Dr. Nelson is board certified in Family Medicine. He focuses on evidence-based, preventative, anti-aging medicine and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. Dr. Nelson has five kids; four girls and one boy. His wife, Inga Nelson, is from Denmark and the family visits her home country every summer. In his spare time, Dr. Nelson enjoys skiing and hiking. FHC's Story Freedom Healthcare (FHC) was started in 2010 by Dr. Jeffrey S. Nelson. The Clinic was founded with the objective to provide a preventative and personal healthcare approach. Dr. Nelson's passion to provide evidence-based medicine brought Freedom Healthcare into fruition. Prior to the emergence of FHC, Dr. Nelson practiced family medicine in Germany. While he was in Germany, his mom told him about the innovative treatment of bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). Dr. Nelson later attended his first evidence-based medical education series on bioidentical hormones in 2008 by Dr. Neal Rouzier. At the conference, Dr. Nelson was shocked at the sheer volume of scientific evidence there was for bioidentical hormones. This information was not taught in medical school or residency. After the education series with Dr. Rouzier, Dr. Nelson changed his patients' treatments from synthetics to bioidentical hormones and all of them felt better. Dr. Nelson continued to study bioidentical hormones and became an expert in this area of medicine. Freedom Healthcare continued to grow as patients saw incredible results through functional medicine and bioidentical hormones. In addition, Dr. Nelson's innovative approach to healthcare attracted other providers, who trained under him. Freedom Healthcare is now quickly expanding with locations in Layton, Ogden, and Sandy, Utah. However, FHC's passion for evidence-based medicine remains the catalyst for the Clinics' tenacity and success in the healthcare sphere.

The Case: Jenny went on the pill as a teenager to regulate her irregular and heavy periods. After 20 years on the pill, she decided to start a family. Going off the pill led to fatigue, insomnia, hair loss, acne, and when her periods returned after 3 months, they were painful, heavy and irregular. Her symptoms led her to suspect hypothyroidism but her levels came back normal. The Investigation The first thing I did when I started working with Jenny was to run a full thyroid panel. While her TSH was normal, as her doctor had said, her free hormones were off. I knew that there had to be a connection between Jenny's long history with birth control pills, her menstrual issues, and her thyroid but was the thyroid causing the issue or did the pill create a thyroid problem? To discuss this further, I reached out to Emily Sadri. She's a board-certified women's health nurse practitioner and midwife who runs a functional medicine practice for women in Cleveland, Ohio. She specializes in abnormal bleeding, perimenopause, menopause, and fertility so I knew she would be a great resource for this episode. How the Birth Control Pill Became So Popular Most people are familiar with the birth control pill and yet, most of the time this medication is prescribed it is not specifically for family planning as it was designed. Instead, women often turn to the birth control pill to help them deal with other issues. For example, it is common for young women to turn to the birth control pill to lessen heavy and/or painful periods. They may also start taking the pill to help them deal with acne or irregular bleeding. This will often happen soon after a woman starts her menses. Emily says this is a bit of an issue because a woman's cycle takes time to find it's rhythm and if a medication is used to regulate that early on, it may never find its own rhythm because the feedback loop between all of the hormones is interrupted. How Menstruation Works To fully understand why this is an issue, we needed to go back for an anatomy lesson and reconsider what is going on in a girl's body as she starts to cycle. The average age of onset of menses is around 11 years old. Prior to that, the young woman's pituitary gland and hypothalamus (in the brain) start to send out little signals to her ovaries. This feedback look is called HPO access or hypothalamic pituitary ovarian access. It's like the feedback loop. So, the hypothalamus talks to the anterior pituitary. The pituitary gland sends out hormones to stimulate the ovaries and release estrogen. That estrogen is released in little bursts over the years leading up to a young girl's first cycle and may still be firing irregularly during the first year or so of menstruation. The estrogen builds up in the uterine lining which starts to thicken the endometrium (lining of the uterus). The hormones from the anterior pituitary stimulate the release of a follicle (aka an egg) from the ovary. That first follicle is released prior to the first bleed. The follicle has a lining around it called the corpus luteum which releases progesterone. The progesterone stabilizes that thickened endometrium. When that egg is not fertilized, the body picks up on that and then the endometrium sheds and that is when you get a menses. All of these hormones have to rise and fall in the cycle and find their rhythm in those first few years of menses. And remember, often at this time in a woman's life, she is dealing with other things that can impact the release of these hormones including stress and/or not getting enough sleep. How the Birth Control Pill Works The birth control pill interrupts the natural feedback loop by introducing hormones that weren't called for or stimulated by the system. The pituitary hormones, the hypothalamus calibrating hormones, that normally communicate with the ovaries, sense the circulating estrogen and progesterone so there's no stimulation required. This quiets the whole system and the body either stops producing or produces very little of its own estrogen and the endometrium doesn't build up as much as it might without the pill. In a traditional birth control pill, there would be 3 weeks of active pills and a week of sugar pills. The absence of the hormones causes a withdrawal bleed. This is different from actually menstruating. This is one of the biggest myths about being on the pill – it does not regulate your period; it eliminates it and triggers a monthly withdrawal bleed. So, any of the problems that existed before going on the pill haven't been fixed by going on the pill, only paused. Often, women will discover that the pill has only masked the problem. The Menstrual Cycle is Not Steady It's also important to note that certain birth control pills deliver consistent levels of hormones each day. This is not how the body naturally produces hormones. Progesterone and estrogen ebb and flow throughout the natural cycle. These natural ups and downs are responsible for creating variety in our mood and feelings. Hormones around ovulation can provide feelings of passion or happiness. It may also be a time of creativity and productivity. Whereas later in the cycle, you might be feeling more introspective. Understanding the natural cycles can be a gift, says Emily. Having a steady state of hormones that do not fluctuate as they naturally should can actually lead to even more mood swings and even things like depression, and a lower libido. Birth Control Pills, Hypothyroidism and Autoimmune Diseases While Emily believes that women should embrace the ups and downs of their natural cycle, she does note that these hormone fluctuations can be problematic for those with autoimmune disease. And while fluctuations can cause flare ups, she still feels that it's important to dig deeper because these responses or flare ups could be a clue to what's really causing the issue. When it comes to the effects the pill might have on hypothyroidism, lab tests may show lower circulating free hormones (even if TSH is fine). This is what we saw with Jenny. Progestin-Only Birth Control Pills The progestin-only pill is popular for women postpartum for a few reasons. The first is that they already have such high circulating levels of estrogen. The second is that estrogen dramatically increases a woman's risk for blood clots. This option is also preferred by those who are at higher risk of complications. Progestin-only birth control pills work differently than the more common estrogen/progesterone. It doesn't always fully suppress ovulation however, it really suppresses the development of the uterine lining. So over the course of your cycle, your estrogen develops the endometrium and makes it thick and rich (perfect for an egg to implant). Because this birth control pill limits the development of the endometrium, it is not sufficient for an egg to implant. Possible side effects include irregular spotting, depression, mood swings, and mood abnormalities. Long Term Birth Control Usage Women who are on the pill from an early age to their mid thirties (when things naturally start to change) can develop issues that are hard to diagnose because they never developed a natural HPO access. As women age, they experience hormonal shifts that, when combined with continued use of birth control pills can lead to a variety of issues. These include: Headaches Migraines with aura Thromboembolism Spotting Sore Breasts Constipation Digestive Changes (bloating) Yeast Infections Leaky Gut Nutritional Deficiencies (specifically vitamins C, E, B2, B6, B12, and folic acid) Metabolic Issues (and weight gain) Low Libido These can be exacerbated by poor diet, poor gut function, slow transit times in their colon, as well as the potential for estrogen dominance. Preventing Hormone Imbalances Any conversation about balancing hormones or starting on birth control pills, according to Emily, should also address nutrition. Estrogen recirculation and excretion of hormones requires good digestion and healthy gut function. This means eating vegetables and getting sufficient fiber to ensure healthy intestinal motility. Stress management is also important in avoiding hormone imbalance. Stress has become quite normalized for young women and it can lead to serious hormone imbalances. Ongoing stress can elevate levels of cortisol which decreases progesterone, which throws off estrogen levels. Estrogen dominance is another issue to watch out for. This can be driven by the gut recirculating excess estrogen, exposure to environmental toxins, among other things. Supplements for Hormone Balancing For estrogen dominance, Emily is a fan of Vitex which is an herb that helps balance hormone secretion. She suggests 1000 milligrams daily in the morning as a way to boost progesterone and decrease excess estrogen. Vitamin E used during the last 7 days of the menstrual cycle and the first 4-7 days of the menses. Vitamin E may help to decrease pain as well as dysmenorrhea. Essentially, you want to use vitamin E for the 10 most symptomatic days of the cycle. Emily recommends taking 1000 milligrams per day in divided doses. Next Steps in Solving Jenny's Mystery The first step in helping Jenny with her issues was to work on her diet and lifestyle to support reducing inflammation and stress (which as we heard, is so critical for hormone balancing). We then did a DUTCH test (a urine test for hormones) which revealed that Jenny was experiencing estrogen dominance due to poor detoxification of estrogen. Her thyroid labs revealed low free hormones as well as a low T3 uptake showing us that she was binding up too much of her thyroid hormones. This is very common with birth control use and I see it all the time. These were key clues in solving her mystery since her symptoms. The high estrogen was causing the heavy, irregular periods. This was also causing binding which resulted in low free T3 and free T4, even though her TSH is totally fine. The impact to the thyroid likely contributed to the fatigue, sleep issues, and overall feeling off. This is actually one of the common thyroid types that I teach about in my upcoming Thyroid Mystery Solved course (scheduled for release in January 2022). With the mystery solved, it was time to get Jenny feeling better. She took Calcium D-Glucarate and DIM Evail to facilitate the estrogen detoxification. We also supported her gut health (making sure she was eliminating well and getting rid of the bad bugs). For this she took enzymes, Microgone, GI Microb, probiotics, and R's Koso (a probiotic drink). We supported her liver with N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC), and LV-GB Complete. Happy Ending After 4 months her periods normalized, her energy and sleep improved, and her skin started to clear up. And, she got pregnant within 6 months! Eliminating Health Mysteries This discussion with Emily reminds us that taking the pill to deal with symptoms doesn't typically fix whatever issue caused those symptoms. It merely masks it while you are on the pill – something that is not explained to many young women looking for instant solutions to their menstrual issues. As with Jenny, those symptoms can come back as soon as you go off the pill. In this case, we were able to get to that root cause of her health mystery and help her not only regain her health but conceive as well. Could prolonged use of the birth control pill be the missing clue for you or someone in your life? Links: Thanks to my guest Emily Sadri.

Understanding the seven key areas of health and sexual health are key to knowing what your next right step is and to unburden you from some of the guilt, grief, and self-sabotage in your life. Learn about the pillars of sexual health and what solutions women can access that will go beyond just dealing with their reproductive hormones to allow them to regain their sex life and enjoy sex again. [1:00] Dr. Anna has been practicing in the field of women's sexual health for years and today's episode deals with hot topics around sexual health, sexual function and dysfunction, and what you need to know to have a healthy and happy sex life. [3:25] The vagina is essential for life and it's vital to take care of your vagina as you age because our physiology drives our behaviour. [3:45] Testosterone affects our behaviour in various ways and its use has risen and fallen in favor as a therapy over time. Dr. Anna tells the story of a patient that was undergoing testosterone therapy and how high testosterone could have resulted in a major relationship issue. [5:45] Physiology affects behaviour, especially when it comes to sex. There are seven key areas of health that need to be in place to have normal sexual function. [7:45] Dr. Anna's story begins at the age of 39 when she was diagnosed with early onset menopause and infertility. She struggled with a number of health issues until she took a healing journey around the world. [9:55] PTSD reared its ugly head around the age of 48 for Dr. Anna and she experienced all the symptoms of menopause again. It takes more than hormones to fix a hormone problem. There are three additional hormones beyond the reproductive hormones that need to be brought into balance for optimal sexual health. [12:50] Dr. Anna's experience led her to try the keto diet, and she found the ketogenic lifestyle to be very powerful in treating and correcting her hormone imbalances. After adding in more alkalizing foods, Dr. Anna felt sharper and more focused than ever. [15:20] A research paper showed a direct correlation between glucose metabolism in the brain and endocrine and neurological symptoms. Glucose metabolism in the brain is an estrogen-dependent process, but the use of ketones for fuel is not hormone dependent. [16:30] The keto diet is very acidic and men tend to adapt more quickly to it due to their higher testosterone levels. Women need to address those differences, and the keto green diet works well for both genders. [18:00] On average, women in their 50's are on two or three different medications. [19:25] Hot flashes were recently linked to cardiovascular disease and cognitive decline. This is partly due to the loss of estrogen but that's not the whole picture. Insulin resistance is also linked to hot flashes. [20:50] We as women can do it all, just not at the same time. Research has shown that a large percentage of women over the age of 30 suffer from issues with arousal, vulva dryness, discomfort during or after sex, or urinary leakage. [22:50] One of the key underlying issues of sexual dysfunction are the underlying psychological causes. This dysfunction can then lead to emotional and self-confidence issues. [24:50] Only 17% of adults discuss their sex life with their doctor. [25:20] There is also medication-induced sexual dysfunction. There are a number of common medications that can have a negative impact on your sexual health. [26:15] A healthy vagina has an acidic pH. That acidity is the vagina's first line of defense and as women age the vagina tends to become more alkaline. Gut health and vaginal health are closely linked; if one is healthy, the other usually is too. [29:15] The human vagina is an underappreciated organ that is not merely a passageway for vaginal discharge, menses, sperm, and neonates, but can profoundly affect the health of a generation. [30:45] Many women power through uncomfortable sex despite being in pain. One of the most energetic and intimate things we can do is have sex, and if she isn't enjoying it, chances are he won't either. [32:10] Dr. Anna breaks down the case of a patient experiencing a variety of sexual health issues and what their treatment entailed. [34:55] Studies looking at the effects of vaginal DHEA found considerable hormonal benefits. [39:30] Estrogen replacement therapies were found in studies to not have any negative effects in cancer patients when compared to alternative therapies. [42:05] Another of Dr. Anna's clients was having trouble with orgasm. After Dr. Anna worked with her on the seven areas of sexual health and with focused therapies, she was able to regain the ability to orgasm. [43:25] About 10%-15% or women never achieve climax. Up to 75% of women never experience climax through intercourse. This emphasizes the differences between climax and orgasm and why it's important to communicate with your partner about the experience. The female sexual experience is also more complicated than a male's. [47:20] Reproductive hormones play a role, but cortisol, adrenaline, and insulin also have major impacts on sexual health. If you're stressed, you can be eating the best food and your urine pH will still be acidic because of the cortisol. This is why the oxytocin/love hormone is one of the most powerful. [48:30] Orgasm is one of the best ways to increase oxytocin, and oxytocin comes with a number of benefits including anti-aging effects, pleasure, happiness, appetite and pain reduction, and muscle mass. [49:35] We need a whole body approach to sexual health. It's not just about testosterone.

How can a woman go from considering her menstrual period as being an archenemy to a place of celebrating its arrival every month? How can a woman eat in such a way as to honor her menstrual cycle, through menopause and beyond? Why are orgasms so important for female health? These are some of the intriguing questions we will explore today on the podcast. Our guest, Dr. Stephanie Estima, is the author of a wonderful book The Betty Body that explores the incredible choreography of hormone changes that take place each and every month in premenopausal women, how these changes manifest throughout the monthly cycle, and why lifestyle choices are exceedingly valuable in terms of aligning these changes with the goal of optimal health. ==== Dr. Estima is a doctor of chiropractic with a special interest in metabolism, body composition, functional neurology, and female physiology. She's been featured on Thrive Global, of the Huffington Post, and has over 3.5 million article reads on Medium.com. She's helped thousands of women lose weight, regulate hormones, and get off medications with her signature program, The Estima Diet. You can hear her every week on her podcast, Better! With Dr. Stephanie. Her best-selling book and the subject of our time together today, The Betty Body, explores female-centric principles of nutrition, exercise physiology, and stress management for women to understand their natural rhythms and importantly, as Dr. Estima reveals, that the cadence of their hormones are actually superpowers.

In this fiery episode we answer ALL of your burning questions about PMS. We talk about what PMS is - the actual definition - and how it can affect different parts of your body (NOT just your mood). We talk about being on the same team as your body and how to understand your hormonal fluctuations We explain how your brain chemicals (Neurotransmitters) are connected to your hormones, and how your two main sex hormones (Estrogen & Progesterone) effect your mood both positively and negatively. Courtney explains what is occurring in the body that causes PMS and what could make it a lot worse (HINT: Think stress, inflammation, nutrition!) The 2nd half of the episode we go deep into the science behind why Courtney formulated Steady Mood to address PMS based on the studies we have available. She goes through why we need Zinc, Magnesium, Calcium, and B6 to support PMS. She also addresses stress adaptive herbs to support our body through a healthy ovulation, to optimize progestin, and optimize the stress that can turn off ovulation.

Much of what is thought about hormone replacement therapy is outdated and untrue. We do a deep dive into what is HRT, what are the benefits, and who should and should not be taking it. What happens during a women's hormone journey from childhood to post-menopausal? How are hormones and a woman's brain connected? What happens in a women's body during menopause? What is hormone replacement therapy? Does HRT increase the risk of breast cancer? What is the relation between hormones and the cardiovascular system? How does menopause impact sleep? Dr. Rebecca Dunsmoor-Su is the Medical Director of Menopause services at the Women's Wellness and Gyn Specialties Clinic at Swedish Medical Center. She is also the Chief Medical Officer at Gennev. Dr. Dunsmoor-Su joins us on the SuperAge podcast for an information-dense episode all about menopause. She explains what happens leading up to and during menopause, some of the symptoms like weight gain, trouble sleeping, brain fog, and how they are addressed, how we can use hormone replacement therapy to improve symptoms and longevity for women post-menopause, and much more. What you will learn in this episode:What a woman's body goes through in terms of hormones from childhood all the way through post-menopause The impact of menopause on the brainEverything we need to know about hormone replacement therapy and some of the myths around itHow menopause impacts sleep and what can help How menopause impacts brain health and the cardiovascular system “Estrogen replacement does not cause breast cancer. And I like to shout that from the rooftops. We have many studies that tell us that estrogen replacement does not cause breast cancer.” “Women who start hormone replacement therapy within 5 years of their last period actually reduce their cardiovascular risk. They also slightly reduce their risk of colon cancer and they reduce their all cause mortality overtime.” “When women are transitioning through menopause, we're talking about 5-10 years of disrupted sleep. That's a lot of impact to the brain.” “Menopause is fine and functional if you're going to live to be 65. You've got 10 years to survive menopause, you're going to be okay. We live to 95, 100, 105! That's a long time, that's almost half your life without the hormones that sort of keep things going. So I think that we need to adjust.” Listen to the SuperAge podcast wherever you get your pods.

Thank you for joining us for our 2nd Cabral HouseCall of the weekend! I'm looking forward to sharing with you some of our community's questions that have come in over the past few weeks… Let's get started! Nicolo: I finished the 21 day detox and feel great. the one issue that i thought would be relieved by the detox was bumps/pimples on back of upper arms and shoulders. i am 44 year old male 6'-1" 200 pounds. Lorena: Hi Dr Cabral! I'd love to get your view on the following: For young women that don't have their periods whether it is due to primary or secondary amenorrhea, are chronic levels of low estrogen an issue? Estrogen levels of 211 pmol/L for example. I've read that: 1. Not having a period is strongly correlated with below normal bone density. 2. Heart function - low estrogen is associated with a increased risk of heart disease as estrogen helps with the formation of hormones like nitric oxide and so keeps levels of vasoconstrictors low. 3. Increased risk neurodegenerative diseases as estrogen is highly protective of brain cells because the cells called microglia are turned off by estrogen and progesterone thus reducing inflammation in the brain. Do you agree on the above? Tessi: I am a 36 year old, and have addison's disease and hypothyroidism. I recently suffered a Missed Miscarriage (silent miscarriage) after being 8 weeks pregnant. Is this common for people who have autoimmune issues? I read that it this type of miscarriage only happens to 3-5% of females...I really want to try to get pregnant again but scared this may happen again.... Currently I'm waiting to get my big 5 lab results back so I can start my healing journey. Lorena: Hi, it's me again :) If the risk for osteoporisis, heart disease and brain diseases are increased on a woman with amenorrhea what would you advice be other than getting the period back? At this point, I give up on getting my period back. It's been years without it since I came off birth control and never got it. I've gone to the best endocronologists and gyneocologists in Germany and they can't figure out why I can't get my period back. All of my hormones are normal according to them. Maybe a little on the lower side when it comes to E2, LH and testosterone but that's about it. I even ran the saliva test with your team and they said that my estrogen, DHEA and progesterone were a little low but nothing crazy out of range for me not to have my period. I did all of your protocols (CBO, CBO finisher, heavy metal detox & more). Foundational protocol level 3 with extra vitamin D & magnesium. One endocrinologist suspects hypothalamic amenorrhea but tbh I doubt it. I'm a 25 year old vata (bmi 20.1. & 14% body fat.,10k steps per day & 30 mins of strength training 4 times a week. Eat 90% plant-based with plenty of protein, carbs and fat approx 2000 calories). Maybe body fat is a little low? I'm doing everything right and I just want my period back. Leandro: Hi Dr. Cabral, Thank you for answering so many questions. I find the answers very helpful and I have learned so much. My question is regarding waking up in the morning with a locked jaw. My wife, for years wakes up most mornings with a locked jaw. You can actually hear her jaw pop, like when you crack your knuckles, when she tries to open it most mornings. Sometimes she says it's stuck for a little bit before she can open it. She has been to a chiropractor and seen other doctors and dentists, but most doctors/dentists recommends she gets a shot of botox to help address it, which she doesn't want to do. Is there anything you could recommend to address this? She has PCOS, but otherwise is a very healthy woman. Thank you. Aubree: My question is, is there an underlying issue that goes along with ganglion cysts? I've had two. The first went away on its own and the 2nd one I've had for a couple of years. Any help you can give without getting it lanced?Thanks!

Four out of five breast cancer cases are fed by estrogen. Certain foods can lower the amount produced by the body and subsequently reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. They also downgrade the risk of recurrence among breast cancer survivors. Dr. Kristi Funk, a board-certified breast cancer surgeon and best-selling author, shares 18 of the most effective estrogen-lowering foods when she joins "The Weight Loss Champion" Chuck Carroll on The Exam Room™ podcast. To the delight of chocolate lovers, the list even includes cacao! Also on this double episode, Chuck speaks with Lorraine Fox who is a breast cancer survivor and mother of NBA star De'Aaron Fox. While raising a future first-round pick is a remarkable achievement, it is her battle with breast cancer that makes Lorraine a superstar in her own right. She shares the emotional story of her will to survive after being diagnosed with the disease not long after it took her sister's life. Plus, she opens up about the touching tribute De'Aaron paid to on the night he entered the NBA. The inspiring mother and son have teamed up to launch the Fox Whole Family Foundation which benefits those whose lives have been impacted by breast cancer. Through the foundation, Lorraine and De'Aaron advocate for increased awareness, testing, and treatment for women fighting this disease. This is the third of four special episodes dedicated to breast cancer. Dr. Funk is helping to lead the Let's Beat Breast Cancer campaign with the Physicians Committee. She encourages women to take the four-week LBBC challenge to improve their health and reduce their risk for breast cancer. — — — Let's Beat Breast Cancer 4-Week Challenge https://letsbeatbreastcancer.org — — — Breasts: The Owner's Manual https://amzn.to/3mmCP3h — — — Fox Whole Family Foundation https://bit.ly/FoxFamFound — — — Dr. Kristi Funk Summit: https://bit.ly/CncrKckng21 Website: https://pinklotus.com IG: @drkristifunk Twitter: @drkristifunk Facebook: https://bit.ly/DrFunkFB — — — Chuck Carroll IG: @ChuckCarrollWLC Twitter: @ChuckCarrollWLC Facebook: http://wghtloss.cc/ChuckFacebook — — — Barnard Medical Center Appointments https://bit.ly/BMCtelemed 202-527-7500 — — — Share the Show Please subscribe and give the show a 5-star rating on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or many other podcast providers.

CANDACE BURCH - Female Hormones My guest today is Hormone Health Educator, Candace Burch MA. Right off the bat I will say it's female centric (even though we do discuss why MEN SHOULD NOT BE DRINKING MILK). Candace gives us a road map to not let our cycles or menopause take us down. She first addresses the lifestyle buckets and then gets into if certain hormones have packed their backs, what is the safest, smartest ways to explore creams or other forms of support. She is matter of fact and very helpful. Why suffer if you don't have too. We can even help our teens who can then take this information into their 20, 30's and beyond.

Are You Menstrual? –In this episode, we cover a topic we get endless questions and DM's about--the ups and downs of the healing journey and specifically what causes this--shifts in estrogen or what we like to call estrogen waves. Healing isn't linear, but man, sometimes it is rough. We've been there. You see some improvements, then your next cycle hits you like a bag of bricks, you're breaking out, and your clothes are getting tighter. When starting our healing journey, we often have a picture in our minds of what this will look like. Typically we are thinking of feeling better after a few weeks or a couple of months, and while this is the case for some people, sometimes it takes longer, and most women feel a little worse before they feel better.
