The Estrobolome’s Role in Hormone Balance, Part 1
May 19, 2022
More and more consumers are aware of probiotics, but most of them think of their importance as being only for digestive health. Some have made the connection between probiotics, a healthy gut, and immune health, but there are other health areas that they positively affect as well. We now have research that points to the importance of a healthy gut microbiome for optimal function throughout the body, including hormone balance. There is an aspect of the microbiome called the ‘estrobolome’ that is uniquely in charge of managing hormone production and detoxification; without a healthy gut, hormone health will not be optimal. Naturopathic physician and integrative practitioner Dr. Aimée Shunney details the estrobolome’s role in managing hormone production and detoxification. She describes the estrobolome as a collection of bacteria in the gut which is capable of metabolizing and modulating the body's circulating estrogen. It is the bacteria in the gut, and the estrobolome, that affect estrogen levels. Click HERE for part 2.

Precision Diagnostics to Reverse Fatigue, Burnout, Anxiety, Depression and Sleep Problems, Part 1
April 7, 2022
Stress is ubiquitous and has many manifestations. Naturopathic physician Dr. Doni Wilson has a new book, "Master Your Stress, Reset Your Health: The Personalized Program to Calm Anxiety, Boost Energy, and Beat Burnout," that details individualized approaches to stress adaptation. She characterizes 5 different stress types, based on variations in cortisol and adrenaline responses. Each entails a specific program of lifestyle and supplementation. We discuss the roles of genetics, diet, relaxation techniques, sleep, Adaptogens, vitamins and minerals, and exercise in stress reactions. A one-size-fits-all approach falls short. Her paradigm applies precision diagnostics to reverse fatigue, burnout, anxiety, depression and sleep problems. Click HERE for part 2.

How healthy are your adrenals? How well does your body handle stress? Get ready to take a deep-dive on this much misunderstood subject with Dr. Thomas Guilliams, author of The Role of Stress and the HPA Axis in Chronic Disease Management.

Is there such a thing as dietary stress? What roles do exercise, sleep, and genetics play in mediating the effects of stress?
