Have you heard of postpartum thyroiditis or adrenal exhaustion? Me neither, which is why I invited Maraya Brown onto the podcast! Maraya is a certified nurse midwife turned women’s health coach who’s worked in women’s healthcare for over two decades in many different capacities. She is here to talk about many aspects of postpartum wellness which she encounters through her work, specifically thyroiditis and adrenal exhaustion. Neither one of these things are terribly common, and there’s actually some controversy as to whether adrenal exhaustion is even something that exists. However, I know that our understanding of medicine and what happens in our bodies and women’s health is always evolving. So, selfishly, I invited Maraya on because I wanted to know more about these topics and I think you will want to know more about them, too!
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- Why Maraya became a women’s health coach
- What is functional medicine and how Maraya uses it in her work
- What is postpartum thyroiditis and what are the symptoms
- What adrenal exhaustion is and what causes it
- What is toxin reduction and how to implement it in your life
- What is oxytocin and how to maximize it in the postpartum
- What are Maraya’s recommendations for gut, thyroid, adrenal, and liver health
