#216 Behind the scenes in perimenopause, HRT and restoring hormone balance to prevent long term issues with Maria Claps and Kristin Johnson of Wise and Well
Listen now
I polled people on IG last month and almost 80% of people that saw my story said they felt like they have food sensitivities. So, that’s a problem because once you dive into the intricacies of that there is a lot of nuances. So to help with this & answer the question I get in so many different flavors each week, I’m hosting a live training and Q&A session called “What should I eat? Answering your questions about food reactions and inflammation”. You can register at christabiegler.com/foodreactions This week I talk to Maria Claps, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist with Wise and Well about what is REALLY happening in perimenopause. An often neglected topic yet so important for those beginning or already in this transition time in their lives and also practitioners looking to help. Maria and Kristin candidly discuss symptoms, treatment, and lifestyle considerations for those in midlife mayhem. KEY TAKEAWAYS: Symptoms of declining hormones?
