In this week’s episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, we had a conversation with the amazing Kate Vazquez. Kate is the co-founder and medical mastermind behind Radiant Health. She has worked as a Physician Assistant in cardiology, the emergency room, and urgent care. Today she shares the secrets to preventing estrogen dominance which can be detrimental to a woman’s physical, emotional, and psychological health.
In this talk, Kate gets into what estrogen dominance actually is, the 5 main telltale signs of hormone imbalance, how to develop estrogen metabolism, the importance of staying in a parasympathetic nervous system, and more. Of course, we also talk about how cleaning our gut can have tremendously significant results when starting to rebalance the hormones in our bodies.
So often, we may think that depression, anxiety, and overall stress can’t have many physiological effects on our bodies but that is far from the truth.
Kate makes it very known that stress can be of the most exacerbating factors when it comes to hormone imbalance, so it’s immensely important to find ways to manage stress, and it starts with eating clean, exercising, and other practices such as meditation or reading. Tune in to find out more key tips to overcome hormone imbalances to begin living happier and healthier!
