Hormonal & Adrenal Health with Dr. Brandy McGill
Dr. Brandy McGill and I met through our professional networking group, BNI. Dr. McGill, N.D. M.S. is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor who specializes in women’s health women’s health (eg. holistic women wellness exams, infertility, menopause, endometriosis, PCOS, PMS, etc.) here in San Diego. This isn’t the only time you will be hearing from Dr. McGill on the Stop Chasing Skinny Podcast. What we found while recording this episode was there are so many other topics we want to cover like gut health, migraines, natural remedies for sleep problems, gastrointestinal disorders, autoimmune conditions, thyroid disorders, detoxing and avoiding environmental toxins, natural age management, the role genetics play in our health, food cravings, and weight loss.
In this episode, we cover how hormonal health is connected to overall health and a topic near and dear to my heart… adrenal health.
☀️ Big picture here, how is female-specific health tied into her overall health such as energy levels, sleep, ability to maintain a healthy weight, and mental health? Did I miss anything?
☀️ Now can we break it down and discuss how all of these are connected and where you can see problems?
☀️ Topic mentioned in podcast… MTHFR and Epigenetic Testing. We WILL have an entire podcast episode on this topic in our series with Dr. McGill.
☀️ Something that is near and dear to my heart is adrenal health. I have had at least 4 major episodes of severe adrenal issues and I tend to attract a lot of clients who are recovering from adrenal fatigue. What can you tell us about adrenal fatigue that we most likely don’t know?
☀️ Can someone repairs their adrenals on their own? Find a qualified doc. Why??? Check out this article on Doctor’s compared to Google Doctors… real life doctors are right 72% where doc apps are only right 34% of the time: http://www.huffingtonpost.
☀️ Are there issues with buying supplements online? YES! Listen:).
☀️ In terms of diet and exercise, what are some of the worst things we can do for our adrenal health?
☀️ Could please tell us how things like lack of sleep, excessive stress, and over exercising/dieting impact our female sex hormones?
☀️ We’ve covered a ton of valuable information here, but if you could boil it down to one main takeaway you would like the listener to remember, what would it be? REST and RECOVERY!
☀️ We even cover a great natural cold remedy called the wet sock treatment (found at the 27:00 point). Also known as a form of hydrotherapy.
☀️ Where are you located and how can the listeners find more information about the medical services you provide?
