    Part 2 Weight Loss, Hormones & Fitness a Round Table Talk with Dana Lawson & Pam Sherman

    Part 2 Weight Loss, Hormones & Fitness a Round Table Talk with Dana Lawson & Pam Sherman

    In part two of this round table talk we answer our listeners and followers question on weight loss , hormones and fitness. 
    Do hormones such as the estrogen patch and oral progesterone need to be taken forever? I’m 51 and post menopausal.  What is the best exercise regimen to follow as you enter the menopause phase of life, while starting hormone therapy and trying to lose weight - at the same time? My diet is under control for the most part.  Should you heal the gut first or balance hormones.  How do you feel about testosterone replacement during peri and post menopause when free to is non existent. Plus what are some natural ways to help boost testosterone before replacement?  How can you tell when your body is metabolically recovered from over dieting? Also, how can you tell if you are clearing inflammation from exercise (i.e., what markers can/should indicate recovery besides fatigue or muscle soreness)? Best approaches when you have hypothyroidism and possibly adrenal issues. How do you assess when to start bioidentical estrogen?  What issues contribute to chronic pain? What do you do when you take the recommendations from your naturopath (et al), take the recommended supplements, eat clean, exercise regularly and you can't lose the weight? So frustrated! Do flowering plant essential oils provide the same benefits as BHRT? (such as bone and cardiovascular health, breast and brain protection?) Can essential oils and BHRT be used together? Is it okay to combine estrogen and testosterone together in a compounded cream? Do hormones such as the estrogen patch and oral progesterone need to be taken forever? I’m 51 and post menopausal. Dana is a menopause coach on a mission to help you get off of the emotional rollercoaster, balance your hormones, and connect with your body in a way that you have not experienced before.

Wish I’d found you years ago!

This podcast is such a critical piece of my health journey. Karen is so relatable, she provides information women don’t get from other healthcare providers, and her real-life experiences help me understand how I can apply the information to my own health and life. I love the variety of interviews, nutrition info, hormone info and my favorite- how to handle the mental and emotional sides of health and weight loss. I can’t thank you enough! And thank you for making all of this content available for free!!!
