    While up to 80% of women experience symptoms of PMS, 8% of women experience a more severe type of PMS called PMDD, and usually starts occurring straight after ovulation (yep, these women often experience 14 days of severe mood symptoms such as aggression, hostility, paranoia, anxiety and depression ).

    Thyroid Problems after having a baby - with Renae Bartlett. Episode 42

    Thyroid Problems after having a baby - with Renae Bartlett. Episode 42

    After just having had a baby, being told that you have post-partum thyroiditis is not fun at all. You'd much rather put all your energy into your cute little bundle.
    Potentially, many mothers don't feel themselves, and unknowingly struggle with symptoms of post-partum thyroiditis because they don't know of it to ask for diagnosis and help.

    This episode will help to provide tools to those who have been told they have this condition, and information for any mothers that may suspect something is 'just not right'.

    I interview nutritionist Renae Bartlett who has experienced post partum thyroiditis herself and has made it her mission to help other mothers through this journey as well.

    You can contact me on www.naturopathnsw.com.au

    About Renae:
    Renae Bartlett is a Clinical Nutritionist who until 12 months ago, was based in Adelaide South Australia. She is currently residing in Canada for the next two years with her husband, one year old daughter and their dog Diego.
    Renae assists people by focussing heavily on the fundamental basics of using ‘food first’ for healing, health and wellbeing. Renae was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s in 2016 and Post-Partum Thyroiditis following the birth of their daughter in 2018. This has led Renae down a path focussed on helping women who may have been diagnosed with post-partum thyroiditis, or who are at risk of developing this condition.

    The benefit of functional testing to put together the puzzle of your health, especially talking about the DUTCH test to look at your hormones and stress hormones indepth, and microbiome (stool) test options.
    How for some people, black mould can dramatically affect your health, and what to do to get on top of it.
    What major hormonal issues Jenn sees affecting women’s health.
    How to work out the causes of why you are chronically ill and putting that information together.
    Adrenal fatigue and nervous exhaustion.
    What are the nutrients and supplements Jenn thinks most people would benefit from.
    Her top lifestyle recommendations to improve health and wellbeing.

    Reducing Chemicals To Protect Future Generations with Tabitha McIntosh

    Reducing Chemicals To Protect Future Generations with Tabitha McIntosh

    I'm joined with Naturopath extraordinaire Tabitha McIntosh. In this episode of Guts and Girl Bits (formally 'Health & Wellbeing Podcast') we chat about how the chemicals in our food and environment can impact on our health in more ways than we know.

    We also chat about how chemical exposure can impact on fertility, pregnancy outcomes and can impact on the health of our children, and even our grandchildren. We also talk about how certain chemicals and pollutants can affect hormonal health and wellbeing.

    But just chatting about how these chemicals can impact on our health isn't that good unless we also talk about how to reduce your exposure and help your body to heal. Tabitha shares some of her recommendations to reduce toxin exposure to toxins and pollutants from many different sources.
