In this episode of The Dr. Hedberg Show, I interview DUTCH test founder Mark Newman. We covered a lot of detailed information about hormone testing and why the DUTCH test is superior in many ways to other forms of hormone testing.
In this episode of The Dr. Hedberg Show, I interviewed writer and thyroid advocate Rachel Hill of The Invisible Hypothyroidism. We discussed Hashimoto’s disease, hypothyroidism, and many connections to these illnesses.
Rachel suffers from thyroid issues herself so we can learn a lot from her about her personal experiences. I urge everyone to listen or read and connect with her through her website and social media which I have linked to at the end of the transcript.
You can read the video transcript below from the video Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy For Women:
Welcome, everyone. This is Dr. Nikolas Hedberg and today I’m going to be talking about natural hormone replacement for women. I’m a board certified naturopathic physician. I’m also board certified in nutrition. I work with many women with hormone imbalances, thyroid problems, adrenal gland imbalances, and what we would call sex or reproductive hormone imbalances. Before we begin, let’s talk about a little research and a little bit of history around hormone replacement therapy. This is a really big topic, a popular topic. Bio identical hormones have been very very popular for years now. Various movie stars and celebrities have made it fairly popular and many women are using it successfully to manage their symptoms as they transition into menopause and beyond. So I wanted to create a nice overview to give you a really good understanding of hormones and the symptoms of hormone imbalances, what you can do about it, and see if it’s something that’s right for you. The Women’s Health Initiative, this was a study designed to provide information, really about the risks versus the benefits of conventional hormone replacement.
