Episode 30: Geek-Out on Women’s Hormones

with Maria Claps, CHHC, FDN-P

This episode started out being a follow-up to Episode 25 on perimenopause, but we ended up covering so much ground that we decided to rename it and just call it what it is: a total geek-out on women’s hormones.

In Episode 30, Brodie talks with Maria Claps, a certified health coach, mother of 4 grown children, and women’s healthy aging advocate, about perimenopause, menopause, women’s hormones, and so much more. As we discussed in E25, perimenopause can be a tumultuous time in the world of hormones, leading to side-effects like anxiety, depression, insomnia, and hot flashes. Learning how to test for, understand, and effectively balance our hormones can makes the process seem far less daunting.
