Bring your hormones into harmony by using food as medicine, keeping the gut healthy, managing stress, avoiding toxins, and finding the right bioidentical replacements.
… you’ll learn about female hormones: what they are, what they do and what disrupts them. You’ll learn about the hormonal shifts that happen at different ages and life stages and get tips on how to balance hormones and make them work for you, not against you.
This conversation features Anna Cabeca, D.O., one of the 8th Annual Biohacking Conference keynote speakers. She’ll be on the main stage in Beverly Hills in September. Dr. Anna is a Doctor of Osteopathy who’s triple-board certified in gynecology and obstetrics, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine. She has additional certifications in functional medicine, sexual health, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
She joins this special preview episode to talk about female hormones. It’s her particular area of expertise and one of The Human Upgrade’s all-time Top 10 podcast topics. Today’s hormone discussion includes:
Dr. Anna explains a hierarchy of hormones: 1) oxytocin, 2) insulin, 3) cortisol, and 4) reproductive hormones. “We have to think about it in that way,” she say. “So, to get well quickly, we work on oxytocin as much as possible, the most alkalinizing hormone in our body. We reduce cortisol, the most catabolic and acidifying hormone in our body, and we create insulin sensitivity, and that is where ketosis is really critically important because as we get into ketosis, we become more insulin sensitive.”
For the past 20 years, Dr. Anna’s educated and helped women with their hormones through her private practice, books, online videos and articles. Learn more about her work with women’s hormone health:
