The medical community is often critical of new ideas. Yet, if we don’t evolve as providers, we’re doing our patients a disservice.
As someone who’s been at the forefront of women’s health throughout her career, Dr. Anna Cabeca never let the naysayers deter her. Back in her first practice in a small town in Georgia, Dr. Anna often found herself with patients with little resources. That experience forced her to get creative in treating her patients; she also recognized the value of empowering the body to heal itself.
Today I’m excited to welcome Dr. Anna, a great friend, and a true hormone expert, to share her insights and experience with you. I recommend her books and products to many of my patients, and I consider her Mighty Maca® Plus one of the few essential supplements for most women.
In this episode, we talk about hormone replenishment, why she created her all-natural products, restorative health, why she is a big fan of compounding pharmacies, the benefits of bioidentical hormones, how being in ketosis helps the body, what it means to live by design, and more.
