Female Hormones with Dr Carrie Jones (PODCAST #19)

 

In today's Women Series episode, Tahnee dives deep into listening to your body's innate wisdom, with Dr Carrie Jones. Dr Carrie is the medical director of the DUTCH, which is a relatively new analytic to test hormones and safe to say it greatly differs from the traditional Western blood-test approach. The ladies discuss the HPA axis and how the thyroid is best tested. Adrenal fatigue is explored and the discussion around slowing down and not being a master of all the things, all the time, is covered. Keto and veganism lifestyles are discussed. This is a beautiful conversation around a woman's wellbeing and how it is a complex and dancing conversation between all the organ systems and hormones. You don't want to miss this one!

 

The ladies discuss:

  • Blood tests show that moment in time; blood doesn't present what each constituent piece is doing, where it's going, or how the body is interacting with it
  • Accurately testing cortisol via blood, is challenging
  • DUTCH show the metabolites, which present how each hormone was processed
  • The ideal Western standard range for blood test data is very arbitrary
  • A slow thyroid slows down everything - hair, nails, metabolism, cortisol
  • Thyroid testing is best via blood
  • Cortisol and melatonin and sort of the like the sun and the moon, like Yin and Yang
  • Circadian rhythm irregularities (e.g. poor sleep) will effect all our rhythms, our female cycle included 
  • We love routine and structure, honour the body by having positive sleep hygiene practices and routine meal time. Basics are key
  • Why keto and intermittent fasting might not be for you
  • How symptoms easily become the normal, but feeling anxious, feeling tired all the time, are not the sign of health
  • How "adrenal fatigue" is the body's way of saying slow down
  • Quality truely is key when it comes to supplements 
  • How veganism has the tendency to deplete a woman's systems
  • What's leptin resistance? 
  • The physiology behind polycystic ovarian syndrome
  • Biologically speaking, survival is the priority, reproduction is not. Hence why stress can play havoc with a women's cycle
  • Libido is a strong sign of robust health, low libido is an indicator there is imbalance
  • Why informed decision-making, regarding the Pill is critical
  • Why menopause symptoms can differ so significantly between women
