EP 154-Estrogen is a B*tch: Birth Control, Weight Gain, Menopause and So Much More with Kate Vazquez

Heavy painful periods? Mood swings? Stubborn weight gain? Hormonal acne? Gut issues? Menopause symptoms? Years on hormonal birth control? We’re tackling all of these things and more on today’s episode with Functional Physician’s Assistant and women’s hormone expert Kate Vazquez. Our conversation goes into the nitty-gritty of what causes these imbalances and how we can start to address them naturally and with far more understanding than we usually find in western medicine.

To connect with Kate visit her website and/or get her book Estrogen is a B*tch from Amazon.
