5 Simple Steps that Balance Your Hormones

You’re going to want to grab their new book. I’ll just say it straight up! Dr. Brooke Kalanick joins me to talk about her new book, steps that balance your hormones, and a title that is just badass! 

About Dr. Brooke:

A licensed Naturopathic (ND) and Functional Medicine doctor, Dr. Brooke attended Seattle, Washington’s Bastyr University, where she earned a Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. 

Dr. Brooke’s postdoctoral training in women’s health and functional endocrinology as well as her personal battle with PCOS led her to specialize in female hormone issues including menopause, hypothyroidism (including Hashimoto’s), autoimmunity and endometriosis and of course, PCOS.

She helps women reset their hormones, their heads, and their habits, so they can finally feel at home in their bodies.  She is also the co-host of the Sarah & Dr Brooke Show and co-author of Hangry: Balance Your Hormones and Rediscover Your Joy In Five Simple Steps (St Martin’s Press, June 2019).

This book is a must! Dr Brooke & Sarah speak the Flipping 50 language! As any listeners know who've done the 28 Day Kickstart, The After 50 Fitness Formula for Women or Fit-U... it's all about managing the ONE hormone you'll hear us talk about in this episode. 

Hangry: (adj) that state of hungry (or so you think) and angry that every woman knows and a woman in PMS, pregnancy, or menopause is an expert in. 

Questions we cover in this episode:

  • What’s the first step to take when you feel overwhelmed with all the health, diet and fitness information out there? 
  • What do you suggest our listeners do to filter the plethora of advice out there and determine whether it will work for them or not?
  • Why do women specifically need to take a full body or complete hormonal system approach to their wellness, even more so than men? 
  • Why did do you put estrogen and progesterone imbalances at the bottom of the priority list for women since those are obviously key female hormones?
  • What sneaky hormonal disruptor are many women unfamiliar with yet may be struggling with unknowingly? (histamine intolerance)
  • Since you and I both place such an importance on managing stress and cortisol for better overall, what advice can you share about making that easier?
  • And don’t miss R.A.M.P.
