As women, most of us have experienced some form of PMS and we’ve all been told it’s normal from our doctors, commercials for drugs to help it, and society.
But the reality is that just because it’s common, it doesn’t mean it’s normal.
And there’s always root causes to PMS and it’s bigger, badder sister, PMDD, as well as PCOS. In this week’s episode, Dr. Pamela Smith, Anti-Aging/Functional Medicine specialist and I cover all this and more:

-The major underlying causes of our hormone issues
-Multi-faceted approaches to PCOS, which has grown exponentially over the last 20 years
-How to heal from the ground-up, gain more energy, and improve fertility
-The importance of bioidentical hormones not only when it comes to anti-aging, but for our bone, heart, and brain health (for both women & men!)
