Ah, hormones. From our teenage years on, these chemical wreak havoc on our tender young bodies, causing everything from skin and weight issues to mood fluctuations, concentration problems, low energy levels and compromised athletic performance. We all know that a diet and stress play massive roles in how our hormones flow through and our processed by our bodies, but what if our susceptibility to hormonal imbalance was actually written into our very genetic code? Naturopathic nutritionist Angela Heap has been a long term advocate for the use of genetic testing in understanding our predisposition from everything from insulin problems to hormonal imbalances like PCOS. Join us as we talk about how the affects of famine and disease can be felt through the generations, why dairy is problematic for people with imbalanced hormones, and how, once again, the Swedes have got it right. Episode 15 is all about cracking the genetic code to understand what our bodies truly need to thrive.
