    Ep. 19 Role of Regulatory T Cells in Healthy Pregnancies and Reproductive Diseases

    Ep. 19 Role of Regulatory T Cells in Healthy Pregnancies and Reproductive Diseases

    Reproductive immunology is an area that all practitioners working in women’s health should be familiar with. It is impossible to separate hormones from the immune system and research, like what we discuss today, is constantly evolving to show how important treating both systems is to the health of your patients. Whether you work with patients with endometriosis, recurrent pregnancy loss, preeclampsia or any other inflammatory conditions treating the immune system is foundational. In today’s episode we review the different elements of the inflammatory response and discuss the connection between Tregs and hormones.

    Ep. 15 The biological effects of quercetin on the ovaries

    Quercetin, that is what we use for allergies, right? The research coming out on quercetin has shown a vast array of clinical applications.

    Ep. 14 The importance of mitochondrial function in hormone production and IVF outcomes

    Ep. 14 The importance of mitochondrial function in hormone production and IVF outcomes

    The mitochondrial are not only the energy producing powerhouses of the cell, but they are also involved in the synthesis of our hormones. We do not have adequate hormones if we do not have good mitochondrial function, full stop. This is why it is critical to go beyond ‘egg quality’ when thinking about fertility outcomes in general, but especially with IVF. In today’s episode we talk about hormone synthesis and how it is influenced by mitochondrial function. I also talk about some clinical pearls for supporting mitochondrial health and how to assess hormones a little bit differently.
