EP 70: Hormone Harmony for Younger Women – Balancing Hormones Without Taking Hormones

“Hormone balance is the catchphrase for younger women.” – James Frame

When you’re looking at perimenopause and post-menopause, the goal is to stop the hormone fluctuations or to replace hormones that have been lost. For younger women, the focus is reinvigorating the biofeedback mechanism to balance and regulate their hormone production.

Unfortunately, being younger means that many doctors are more likely to simply put them on birth control to mask any period problems they’re experiencing without investigating the root cause. That can have knock-on effects that make it harder to regain balance as they age.

So, what can you do to support your hormones and relieve period problems if you don’t want to be on hormonal birth control?

Today, I’m joined by James Frame and Dr. Deanna Minich from Symphony Natural Health. James and Deanna are discussing the importance of understanding the body’s natural cycle, the potential adverse effects of birth control pills, the uses of maca and the properties of its different phenotypes, the importance of hormone balance for conception and healthy pregnancy, the benefits of Femmenessence for younger women, and more. Enjoy the episode!
