7 | Melissa Bloom: Hormones and the Gut Microbiome - Adrenal Fatigue, Rebalancing Cortisol, and Gut Dysbiosis as a Root Cause of Dis-ease Mind the Roots

    • Alternative Health

In this episode, Melissa and I talk about some of the most pressing topics in women's health, including depression, anxiety, trauma, the pill, the gut microbiome, adrenal burnout, brain fog, and the thyroid gland.

Bringing a holistic approach, Melissa weaves together her knowledge on the gut-brain link between PTSD and stress resilience; the fine line between restrictive eating and disordered eating; how our gut microbiome is seeded throughout birth, breastfeeding, and early childhood; the hormone shifts of menopause; why hormone replacements like the birth control pill and Synthroid fail to address the root cause of hormone imbalances; how the gut microbiota are under attack by excessive hygiene; and whether supplementation is needed.

Melissa Bloom is an AFAA Certified Fitness Instructor, a Registered Yoga teacher, and holds a Masters in Molecular Biology. From her early career in genetics, biology and neurology to her later experience teaching wellness disciplines, Melissa has been in awe of the intelligence of the human body. A mom to three young sons, her passion is to help people find balance - to feel like the best version of themselves.
