Do Hormonal Imbalances Actually Exist?

with podcast guest

Dr. Shawn Tassone


Dr. Shawn Tassone is a holistic OBGYN and the first physician in the United States to be double board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and by the American Board of Integrative Medicine. He also has a Ph.D. in mind-body medicine and he’s the author of the Hormone Balance Bible.

Just mentioning the term ”hormone imbalance” is enough to stir up a lot of controversy with women’s health experts in the medical and coaching communities. Does it really exist? Why test your hormones when they’re constantly fluctuating throughout your cycle? All that and more is packed into this episode with Dr. Shawn Tassone.

In this episode, we talk about why the concept of hormone imbalances has become so controversial, how your hormones fluctuate throughout your cycle, the benefits of combining a medical and alternative approach to your health, Dr. Tassone’s hormonal archetypes, the most common hormone imbalance Dr. Tassone sees, what can be done about hormone imbalances, and so much more!

I’m so excited because Agni has just launched a complete women’s health box for healthy hormones and better periods. What I really like about Agni is that they work with a Medical Advisory Board and top chefs to make their products, so if you’ve ever wished your supplements tasted delicious, you’ll really love their new box. The Complete Women’s Health Box has five awesome products in it – my personal favorite is the double chocolate chip cookies. They’re the kind of cookies that make you want to eat the whole box in one sitting. I also really love the seasonings which make seed cycling super easy, plus they turn your avocado toast into otherworldly goodness. Everything in the box is gluten-free, dairy-free, and totally delicious.
