I put a call out for podcast questions in my free Facebook group (join us here) and there were so many on HRT specifically that I did an entire episode on it. I cover delivery methods, what bioidentical HRT actually means (hint: it is not the same as compounded and they do not have to come from a functional doc), how to know when your dose is just right and when is the ideal time to start and stop HRT.
As well, I talk about what your other options are besides HRT or in addition to HRT. Women do not have to choose one or the other, in fact, many herbs and nutrients will actually improve your experience on HRT – especially those that support hormone metabolism and gut health. It’s a big episode, please share it with another woman that needs clarification around this confusing topic!

We all know the downsides of alcohol, but it is still something many decide to enjoy on occasion. Most of us also notice that especially as we get into our 40s and beyond that one glass of wine feels like way more than a glass the next day. If you choose to indulge, one dose of ZBiotics before drinking any alcohol can make you feel way less yucky the next day! Cool…but how? The yuck the day after having alcohol is due to a buildup of acetaldehyde (a byproduct of alcohol metabolism). ZBiotics is a probiotic formula that helps you break down acetaldehyde in the gut so you can have a great workout and a great day even after a drink the night before.
