#238: Hormonal Imbalances Can Ruin Your Life, Here’s How to Fix Them with Dr. Sara Gottfried

Dhru Purohit Podcast

Hormonal Imbalances Can Ruin Your Life, Here’s How to Fix Them | This episode is brought to you by ButcherBox and InsideTracker.Mainstream medicine often fails us when it comes to hormonal imbalances. Hormones aren’t commonly tested, even when there is a high likelihood of an issue (like cortisol in our overly stressed culture). Since there are so many hormones that can become dysregulated, presenting with a wide variety of symptoms, many of the symptoms are written off to aging and never addressed. In this episode of The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru takes a deep dive into the topic of hormonal imbalances with Dr. Sara Gottfried, along with what you can do to get them back on track. Dr. Sara Gottfried is a board-certified physician who graduated from Harvard and MIT. She practices evidence-based integrative, precision, and Functional Medicine. She is Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Integrative Medicine and Nutritional Sciences at Thomas Jefferson University, and Director of Precision Medicine at the Marcus Institute of Integrative Health. Her three New York Times bestselling books include The Hormone Cure, The Hormone Reset Diet, and Younger. Her latest book is Women, Food, and Hormones.  In this episode, we dive into: -Common hormone imbalances that have become normalized in society (7:25)-Signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances (11:35) -Dr. Gottfried’s personal journey of learning how to balance her hormones (20:25) -The top 3 things to prioritize when addressing hormone imbalances (34:46) -Understanding the unique biology of women when it comes to balancing hormones (44:12) -How to uncover the root cause of hormone imbalances (50:10) -How chronic cardio negatively impacts cortisol levels (58:39) -The top 3 mistakes when it comes to diet and how it impacts our hormones (1:05:59)-How to improve metabolic flexibility (1:10:11) -The key pillars of The Gottfried Protocol (1:23:21)  Also mentioned in this episode:-Breathing Zone App - https://breathing.zone/ -Perceived Stress Scale Test - https://www.bemindfulonline.com/test-your-stress -Continuous Glucose Monitors - -Levels - levels.link/dhru-January AI - https://january.ai-ZOE - https://joinzoe.com/-NutriSense - https://www.nutrisense.io/-Abbott - https://www.abbott.com/-Dexcom - https://www.dexcom.com/-Keto-Mojo (ketone and glucose monitor) - https://keto-mojo.com/ For more on Dr. Gottfried you can follow her on Instagram @saragottfriedmd, on Facebook @drgottfried, on Twitter @gottfriedsara, on YouTube @drgottfried, and through her website https://www.saragottfriedmd.com.
