Show Summary: In this episode, Dr. Anna Cabeca, the Girlfriend Doctor, a certified gynecologist and the author of the books The Hormone Fix and Keto-Green 16, tells us about how we can empower our hormones and restore its balance naturally.
At the age of thirty-nine, she was diagnosed with permanent irreversible infertility and early menopause & she was told she’d never be able to have another child. It made her feel the massive devastation many couples experience because of the inability to produce offspring. But it motivated her to pursue functional medicine, and now through her knowledge and expertise, she had amazingly helped hundreds of women get pregnant.
She mentioned that just by cleaning up the diet, taking out the sugar, the endocrine disrupters, the preservatives, and eating organic foods create a vast difference in our lives and make us feel ninety percent better.
