A woman is acutely aware of her hormones throughout most of her life. From the onset of menstruation to pregnancy and through to menopause, women can detect hormone imbalances but are never exactly sure what diet and exercise programs will create harmony in their systems. To help us understand the science behind the emotions, Drew welcomes Dr. Anna Cabeca to the podcast. Dr. Cabeca is a board-certified OB/GYN and author of the books, The Hormone Fix and Keto-Green 16. Her work has been featured on ABC, CBS, NBC and in People and Shape magazines. During this conversation, she explains how a keto-green diet can help women stabilize cortisol and oxytocin production leading to ‘hormone harmony’, the beneficial supplements that help both men and women deal with hormone imbalances and sexual and reproductive health, and how women can take control of their health at any age.
