Encore Episode Hormone Secrets: What Your Body is Trying to Tell You
The constant exposure to endocrine disruptive chemicals and lifestyle factors is messing with our hormones in a big, bad way.

Combine this with the fact that many women are in the dark about their own hormones, and you're faced with a real problem. 

Alisa Vitti, functional nutritionist, women's hormone expert, and best-selling author of WomanCode, and the founder of FLOLiving.com, says it's important to learn the language of your body so you can respond in real-time to the physical cues presented to you. 

One way to remedy hormone issues is with food. 

For example, if your energy and mood are all over the place during the day it may mean that your blood sugar levels are erratic. To combat this, you need to eat the right carbs throughout the day to stabilize blood sugar. Also, avoid that early morning cup of coffee on an empty stomach; wait until after breakfast. 

Another issue Alisa commonly treats is the presence of painful symptoms of estrogen dominance: bloating, mood swings, acne, breast tenderness, heavier periods. Complex carbs can help mitigate that dominance. Leafy greens can also help metabolize estrogen in a healthy way. 

Listen in as Alisa joins Dr. Taz to explain more about what your hormones are telling you and shares information on her Cycle-Syncing™ protocol, a female-centric diet and lifestyle program that leverages hormonal patterns for optimal health.

Alissa also discusses her new app, MyFlo, which helps you determine the following at different times in your cycle:

  • Eating raw food vs. cooked food
  • Bootcamp vs. yoga
  • Giving a presentation vs. brainstorming and researching
  • Mommy time vs. playing with the kids
  • Making out vs. a quickie
  • Socializing with friends vs. a romantic date night
