Today I’m joined by functional medicine doctor and internationally recognized speaker, consultant and educator for women’s health and hormones, Dr. Carrie Jones!
We are getting into the nitty gritty of estrogen detox and the importance of hormone testing. Dr. Carrie explains the science behind estrogen detox, how it is NOT a cleanse, and details the phases and pathways. We also discuss how you can start supporting detox pathways to eliminate excess hormones from your body. This information is vital for balancing hormones!
Dr. Carrie is also the Medical Director for Precision Analytical, Inc., who created the DUTCH test for hormones. She shares the benefits of DUTCH testing (a.k.a. urine testing) over blood and saliva tests. At the end, Dr. Carrie also gives advice for hormone testing, such as the ideal time in your cycle!
