On May 10, members of the CMJ Masterpass joined me and Dr. Carrie Jones in a live Zoom meeting to ask us anything about hormones, and here’s the full recording!

We talk about things like:

  • What time of day is best to take T4 and/or T3?
  • How to use pregnenolone to manage perimenopausal insomnia?
  • Is insomnia different between people who are and aren't on HRT?
  • Estrogen’s effect on the kynurenine pathway could be keeping you up at night.
  • What about men with high estrogen?
  • Over-the-counter supplements to lower SHBG and increased free testosterone?
  • Mycotoxins
  • Iodine, fatigue, and “detox” reactions.
  • Loss of libido and sexual sensation with the LEEP procedure: could progesterone and vitamin E help? What else?
  • Should I be on testosterone replacement therapy?
  • Supporting hormones with nutrition.
  • Why is early morning waking a characteristic symptom of depression and what other conditions have early waking as a symptom?
  • Causes for night sweats in men?
  • Nutritional advice for breast cancer prevention, and the HRT question.
  • Water retention near menstruation.
  • Why would a woman have no cycle? Why would a woman have an anovulatory cycle?
  • What can be done to reverse hypothyroidism other than taking thyroid hormone?

All this and much more!
