This week we’re talking all about female hormones and how they can be affected by what you do (and don’t) eat. We see issues with our female patients all the time when they’re under eating, over exercising, or taking hormonal birth control for a long period of time. We’re gearing up to have Stefani Ruper on our show next time so we hope you enjoy the focus on women’s health this month!

Here’s what Laura and Kelsey will be discussing in this episode:

  1. Is there a case for taking oral birth control if you have amenorrhea?I have hypothalamic amenorrhea and early onset osteoporosis, so the supplemental estrogen would be for bone heath. I “lost” my period at 16 and was put on birth control, but went off it a year ago to try and get my period on my own, but no luck. My bone density never improved while on birth control, but the doctor’s argument is that it could have been worse.Can post birth control syndrome last longer than 1 year, and is trying to get my period back with diet and lifestyle foolish considering bone loss risk?Some details: 26 yrs old, 5’8″, 125 lbs, 100% paleo for 2 years, no refined sugar, and moderate/low carb (ex. 1 piece of fruit and about a cup of starchy tubers most days – slowly upping it)
  2. Hi Laura and Kelsey! My question is about intermittent fasting. I’ve recently been experimenting with daily intermittent fasting and feel great! I’ve read that women who use IF do not respond as well as men, but when I skip breakfast and only eat between 11:00am and 8:00pm I have no issues and actually have even more energy than ever. Regardless of how I feel, should I be concerned that IF is not good for my health, as a woman? Thanks so much; I love your show!
