I loved this hormone supporting episode with Dr. Anna Garret, who is here help Savvy Sisters like us - bring more Harmony to our Hormones!  I think we hit it all on stress, mindfulness, perimenopause, and bioidentical hormone confusion -and safety.  Like Anna, I’m incredibly motivated in helping women better grasp and understand how hormone imbalances and menopause affect our physical and mental health.  

Like with most things, it’s critical to connect our own dots so we can understand the relationship between our hormones and time of life. Did you know 70% of women experience Estrogen Dominance at some point in their lives and 90% don’t realize that’s what they have it?  Or that estrogen therapy decreases hip fracture by 55%?

 

I know you’ve talked to “experts” about your symptoms, but always end up feeling more confused than when you started. Dive in with Anna and I as we talk about great lifestyle tips and how it’s never too early or late to start addressing our stress, sleep and lifestyle to support a quality of life we all wish for. 

What you’ll awaken to:

Did you know that by interacting with the receptors in your body’s endocannabinoid system, CBD CAN actually alleviate many conditions women navigate every day: mood swings, cramps, anxiety, stress, breast tenderness, bloating, fatigue, cravings… and hormone imbalance!

In one study, they found that the effects of CBD on plasma prolactin, growth hormones, and cortisol, CBD helped to regulate cortisol secretion!

In another study, researchers said:  cannabinoid exposure could have profound effects on the function of the reproductive system, lactation, metabolism, and the endocrine stress axis.” 

Hemp is naturally packed with omega fatty acids and high in gamma-linolenic acid which is known to help regulate hormones. 

Our hormones are more imbalanced now than ever before, because of the food we eat and our modern environment impacting hormones, libido, and mood.

SO  HOW CBD OIL CAN AFFECT PMS SYMPTOMS

When it comes to reducing the common symptoms of PMS, evidence for the use of CBD is much stronger. 

(And more positive!)

Inflammation is the primary driver behind the pain and discomfort many women experience around the start of their period. And there are several studies that show CBD has a positive effect on reducing systemic inflammation.

CBD Oil may also be able to help reduce those mood swings, irritability, and anxiety that make getting our periods that difficult to endure.

CBD has been shown to act on various receptors in the brain to produce calming, restful, and anti-anxiety effects in animal models. And while we can’t directly translate the results of animal studies to humans, research like this can give us an idea of how CBD might affect our own moods.

Keeping the endocannabinoid system balanced is essential. 

I believe in taking CBD every day for this reason, just as you would a multivitamin. 

But....I also suggest Working to uncover the underlying cause of why you’re experiencing symptoms of hormone imbalance in the first place will be so much more valuable than stopping at simply masking the symptoms.

And once you know why those symptoms are happening, you’ll be more empowered to make the lifestyle changes required to help resolve those symptoms at the root.

Did you know that hugging can boost oxytocin and energizing testosterone levels?

Or that regular intercourse with someone you love and feel connected to is one of the BEST things you can do to preserve brain health and prevent dementia?

You’ll be blown away by this episode as we discuss healthy intimacy = hormonal health & vital longevity.

Dr. Lyndsey Berkson is one of the most fabulous, smart, and strong guests we’ve hosted on the Awaken Beauty show.

Dr. Berkson is an incredible female voice that is trumpeting truth and clarity for thousands of women as well as to Practitioners in the medical field around cutting edge truths on hormones, connectivity and removing toxicity in our everyday lives.

I’ve followed Dr. Lindsey’s research for many years and she’s influenced my business ethos behind my organic salon after reading the pioneered book at its time: “The Hormone Deception.” I’ve discussed many times about the importance of how not just the levels of our hormones, but how the conversation of our hormones help us function and age optimally - or dysfunction and break us down.

As infants, we require physical touch to ensure healthy development and brain maturation. Adults also require intimacy and connection to be mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically healthy. Sadly, the truth is so many of us feel alone and disconnected (hello technology).

Get this ...a loving hug can increase oxytocin and decrease cortisol, deep conversations can be neuroprotective, and a true friend (in-person) connection can alter not just our emotional life but our biology.

Join the round table of women as we dive into the role between intimacy, environmental castration and how to save your endocrine system.

About Linsdey:
My guest is Dr. Lindsey Berkson has been a leader in functional medicine and women’s health care for decades. She was a scholar at an estrogen think tank at Tulane University where she worked with the top scientists that have discovered how hormones function and dysfunction.

Lindsey is now a professor and mentor for physicians, pharmacists and other health care professionals within continuing education courses on hormones, gastroenterology (and the gut-hormone connection), nutrition and the environment.

Dr. Berkson has authored 21 books and hosts The Dr. Berkson’s Best Health Radio. She had breast cancer 24 years ago and has made “remission” her “mission”. Dr. Berkson now specializes, with science-based functional medicine tools, in working with breast cancer survivors to do the same.

It’s important to understand how the human body processes CBD. Essentially, our body breaks CBD down through metabolization, just like other oral drugs by entering the digestive tract. Here, they absorb through the stomach lining into the hepatic portal system.
