A Unique Approach to Optimizing Sex Hormones During and After Menopause with Dr. Anna Cabeca

“Menopause is natural and mandatory. Suffering is optional.” – Dr. Anna Cabeca

When it comes to balancing your hormones in perimenopause and menopause, there’s a lot of discussion about the benefits of bioidentical hormones and hormone replacement therapy. The potential for using diet and lifestyle to balance your hormones is often overlooked.

Today’s guest, Dr. Anna Cabeca, emphasizes that it takes more than hormones to fix your hormones. We can use lifestyle and nutrition to reconnect our mind and body to focus on replenishing and optimizing rather than simply replacing hormones. Dr. Anna is the best-selling author of The Hormone Fix and Keto-Green 16 and MenuPause, and she is triple-board certified and a fellow of gynecology and obstetrics, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine. She has also personally developed natural products to help women balance hormones and thrive through menopause.

In this episode, Dr. Anna and I discuss how she reversed early menopause and infertility, why it’s essential to manage cortisol, insulin, and oxytocin, tools to support your body and hormone health, the significance of addressing adrenal health and stress, and more. Enjoy the episode!
