Dr Brooke Show #321 Interplay Between Gut Health

You’ve likely heard a lot about gut health and how it is a key foundation to your health and it’s absolutely true that gut health directly impacts hormone health. In this episode I get into the exact interplays between estrogen and your gut, how the microbiome as a whole impacts estrogen and a subset of bacteria known as the estrobolome have an even bigger impact on your estrogen levels.

I discuss knowing tested values like beta-glucuronidase which needs to be just right, not too high and not too low, in order for you to have healthy estrogen levels. As well I dive into how the gut and both thyroid hormones and cortisol interact. And because so many of us are dealing with diagnosed autoimmunity or have a positive family history of autoimmune diseases, I cover specific infections that are seen on functional stool testing that can be potential triggers for various autoimmune issues.
