Ep 63 | Hormonal Health with Dr. Carrie Jones
Dr. Carrie Jones is a Naturopathic Physician who is board certified in Naturopathic Endocrinology (FABNE) with a Master's in Public Health (MPH) and over 15 years in the field of functional and integrative medicine. She lectures all over the world on the topic of hormones and helps "hormonally challenged people feel less crazy." Ashleigh brought her on the show to explore the complexity of our hormonal cycles and what we can do to optimize them so we feel and perform our best.
In this episode Ashleigh and Dr. Jones discuss:
- The natural cycles of our hormones, and what they do for our body
- Options for hormonal testing if you think something is off
- The impact of cortisol on your body and your hormones
- Lifestyle factors that play important roles in optimal hormone health; how to reduce your toxic load
- And more!
Speaking of reducing toxins, shoutout to show sponsor Primally Pure, my favorite skincare company - they use a few natural ingredients like beef tallow, shea butter, and essential oils, and their products are beautiful and luxurious like high-end skincare without the pricetag or the sketchy ingredients. The natural deodorant and body butter are lifechanging! Head to primallypure.com and use the code MUSCLEMAVEN for a discount.
