In this episode, Krista invites the incredible Dr. Taz Bhatia, M.D., (aka Dr. Taz) to dive deep into the intricate world of women’s hormone health. The conversation kicks off with an eye-opening discussion about Dr. Taz’s journey in the holistic and integrative/ functional medicine space and how it began with her own hormone hell 20+ years ago. 

The duo explores the hormonal challenges that arise when women are the breadwinners, like navigating superwoman syndrome, and the importance of identifying and unblocking emotions. 

From carrying emotional and physical weight to understanding the connection between chakras and health, this episode is an insightful journey that encourages listeners to embrace their hormonal symphony and find empowerment in their well-being. 

We also talk about:

  • Waking up to hormone health issues
  • Misconceptions about hormones
  • How trauma impacts your hormones
  • Societal frameworks + pressures
  • The women’s role within a family unit
  • Women as breadwinners + superwoman syndrome
  • Identifying + unblocking emotions
  • Carrying emotional + physical weight
  • The destabilization of the nervous system
  • The relationship between your chakras + health
  • Tools for women to take care of themselves
