111: PCOS and Adrenal Fatigue
Feel Better Every Day, Starting Now, With Natural Medicine
PCOS and Adrenal Fatigue, and Hashimoto's Thyroid are common diseases of women around the world. Dr. Brooke Kalanick, a licensed Naturopathic Doctor and functional medicine practitioner, will join us in today's episode as we go through women's health and treating these diseases using natural medicine.
“Women deserve to understand how their body works and how many options they have so they can make the healthiest and most empowered choice for themselves…” – Dr. Brooke Kalanick
Brooke specializes in weight loss, women’s health, and hypothyroidism. While attending Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, Dr. Brooke earned her Doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine and Masters in Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. She has studied and worked along with leading functional medicine physicians including Dr. Datis Kharrahzian, Dr. David Brady, and Dr. Tori Hudson.
According to Dr. Kalanick, many women are given limited options for her specialties such as the pill or metformin for PCOS and Synthroid for Hashimoto's. But many women don't realize they have in fact many options in the realm of natural medicine. These options involve diet, lifestyle, and exercise can help women feel better and gain more ground than their conventional options alone. It was shocking to hear that Dr. Brooke sees women get put immediately on hormone replacement by their MDs (bioidentical or otherwise) without more thought given to the cause of their hormonal imbalance.
The 5 Healthy Rules Every Woman Should Live By
Brooke is most passionate about two things: giving women options and helping them do what works for them in a loving, healthy way. So, her #1 advice for anyone with these issues is to follow her 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 rule:
5.) Take 5 walks a week
4.) Eat 4 meals a day (helps balance blood sugar and lower stress)
3.) Strength training 3 times a week within your ability
2.) Drink twice as much water
