Hearing the word “hormones” is a bit like nails on a chalkboard to an OB/GYN. There is so much misinformation out there that it’s hard not to feel skeptical about this topic. However, today’s guest, Dr. Heather Rhodes, takes a balanced, science-based approach to her work that I find really refreshing.
Dr. Rhodes is a holistic pharmacist with a passion for women's health. Haven’t heard of a “holistic pharmacist” before? Neither had I! She’ll tell you all about it in the episode - essentially it means that she’s taking what she learned form pharmacology and applying it to holistic hormone healthcare. I love getting to the root cause of issues and her approach is all about treating the cause more than the symptoms.
In this Episode, You’ll Learn About:
- Why Heather chose to classify herself as a holistic pharmacist
- What made her decide to focus her work on hormone balance
- Which hormones are most important for fertility and overall health
- How she defines hormone balance / imbalance
- Why she advocates for a combination of traditional and modern medicine
- How hormones are affected by our daily choices
