Why Allopathic Medicine Won’t Heal Your Hormone Issues with Dr. Tabatha Barber

Welcome to the first episode of season 4 of Hormonally Speaking!

We are kicking off this season with a fabulous guest, Dr. Tabatha Barber, who is triple board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, menopause, and functional medicine.

Dr. Barber is a dynamic practitioner and she shares her own experiences of what propels her to do the work she does, including:

✨How she went from being a teenage mother to becoming a triple board-certified doctor

👉🏼And how this experience paved the way for her to fight for women, their health, and hormonal balance.

✨Finding her way to functional medicine after re-injuring herself barely six weeks after her back surgery

👉🏼Her doctor told her “back surgeries are like Lay’s potato chips – you can’t have just one.”

✨Explaining how birth control does *not* balance your hormones

👉🏼But instead overrides your own hormones, causes leaky gut, vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and can be a contributor to turning on autoimmune conditions.

✨Breaking down how doctors don’t intervene in health conditions until they are already full-blown diseases

👉🏼There aren’t medications or surgeries available until it gets to that point.

✨Why bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is safe and can be life-changing, and how they are different from HRT.

And so much more! Dr. Barber is so inspirational as a forward-thinking doctor who understands how we truly heal from the ground up. You’ll leave this interview not only more knowledgeable about how the healthcare system works, but also with hope that more doctors will make the move to the functional side.

Dr. Tabatha Barber has devoted her life to giving women a voice and a choice when it comes to their health and well-being. As a young girl, she struggled with self-esteem and identity issues, dealt with peer-pressure, and survived the ridicule and stigma of becoming a teenage mother. As she shared in her first published book titled, From White Trash to White Coat: The Birth of Catherine’s Purpose, those events led Tabatha to finding her purpose in life.

With perseverance and grace, she was able to redirect her path in life and become a successful physician. Dr. Tabatha Barber is triple board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, menopause, and functional medicine. She has the unique situation of being licensed to practice medicine in over half the country, so you now have the ability to work with a functional physician virtually.

She is the host of The Gutsy Gynecologist Show (formally the Functional Gynecologist Podcast); where she shares her wisdom and knowledge with women everywhere to reclaim their health. She is also a keynote speaker, mentor, wife, mom, and grandma!

By incorporating functional medicine into her women’s health practice, she is able to provide women with the tools they need to optimize their health and happiness, which, in turn, allows those women to pursue their purpose in life.
