Have you ever told your doctor you’re struggling to feel well, only to hear, “Well, you’re getting older…”? You’re not alone.
This is such a common experience—and it happens to doctors, too, including my guest, Dr. Taz Bhatia. In this episode, she reveals her own experience with medical gaslighting, how it changed her approach to practicing medicine, and what you can do if it happens to you.
We discuss how you can advocate for yourself and your well-being, from understanding how your hormones are shifting and the effects that has on your life to finding a doctor who will collaborate with you and work to optimize your physiology. We also cover sneaky culprits that could be taking a toll on your health, what your labs aren’t telling you, and how to make menopause a time to rise into your power.
