Do you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance?
Many women struggle for years with issues like heavy or irregular periods, acne, hair loss, fibrocystic breasts, fibroids and infertility.
And most people think that hormone imbalances are the problem in and of themselves. But the truth is, hormone imbalances are a sign that something’s imbalanced elsewhere in the body.
So, how do you identify and address the root cause of these hormone challenges? Could it be as easy as modifying your diet and making a few lifestyle changes?
Melissa Groves Azzaro, RDN, LD, is Founder of The Hormone Dietician, an integrative health practice that helps busy women with hormone imbalances, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and other fertility issues regain regular, symptom-free periods and get pregnant naturally.
Melissa is also the creator of The Period Problems Root Cause Roadmap, the author of A Balanced Approach to PCOS, and host of the podcast Hormonally Yours with The Hormone Dietitian.
On this episode of The Breast of Everything, Melissa joins hosts Kim Schott and Dr. Linsey Gold to explain how traditional medicine fails women by prescribing the Pill as a cure-all for our hormone imbalances.
Melissa walks us through her multifaceted approach to identifying the root cause of a hormone imbalance and shares the story of a client she helped avoid ovarian wedge resection surgery and get pregnant naturally.
Listen in for Melissa’s insight on using nutrition to adjust your estrogen level and learn how to minimize the hormone disrupters in your environment that contribute to hormone imbalance and fertility issues.
