Dr. Brooke Kalanick Period Party Podcast

Dr. Brooke Kalanick is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor (ND) and functional medicine practitioner who helps women reset their hormones, their heads, and their habits, so they can finally feel at home in their bodies. Dr. Brooke’s postdoctoral training in women’s health and functional endocrinology, as well as her personal battle with PCOS, led her to specialize in female hormone issues. She is also the co-host of the Sarah & Dr. Brooke Show and co-author of Hangry: Balance Your Hormones and Rediscover Your Joy in Five Simple Steps.

In this episode, we talk about how you can use the hormone hierarchy to develop a healthy approach to correcting hormone imbalances, the importance of understanding the signals your hormones send to your body, why insulin and cortisol have a higher priority than estrogen and progesterone in the hormone hierarchy, common hormone disruptors you may not be aware of, and so much more!
