Today we are taking a deep dive into our hormones and how they impact our brain, emotions, and ways of thinking. Fiona McCulloch is a naturopathic doctor and founder of the White Lotus Clinic, servicing women with a vast array of hormonal conditions and helping them take control of their hormones and how they impact their daily life. 

As women, we naturally cycle through different levels of hormones, but it is up to us to understand how we can naturally navigate that and handle the stressful shifts in our cycles and our lives that can cause hormonal imbalances to come to the surface. When you are able to focus on increasing hormonal support to balance your mood, energy and physical symptoms, you can create a more resilient mentality to your changing hormones.

Conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis and post-partum depression can all play a role in your ability to control your changing hormone levels, and Fiona is here to help you determine whether what you are experiencing is normal or a cause for concern. Learn about the role your gut plays when balancing estrogen and progesterone, what you should be looking out for when it comes to painful periods or drastic mood changes, and how to track your cycle to know if your body needs some extra help.

Fiona is breaking down the emotional states you can experience throughout your menstrual cycle so that you can get a grip on your hormonal issues and give yourself the love you deserve so that your body can heal optimally.

Do any of the symptoms Fiona touched on resonate with you? Share your hormone journey with us in the comments on the episode page.

Quotes 

“Trying to find out if there is something unusual that is happening with their hormones that is causing this, or is it just their brains response to the hormone shifts, which in that case, if it’s just the brains response, then I support the brain and the mood primarily.” (9:07)

“I always focus a lot on inflammation and I always focus a lot on the gut, because the gut is definitely the entry point to the immune system and our gut is something that we can really control and do so much to help.” (13:08) 

“Once you figure out if that’s what it is, then you can start treating it, and people do get much, much better with treatment for this condition.” (14:27)

“Help is available, it’s okay, and it’s good to reach out for help because so much can be done for postpartum depression.” (24:30)

“I just want to make their brain more resilient to those stressors, and give them the tools, lifestyle tools, meditation, prayer, whatever works for this person to connect to those deeper parts of themselves that strengthens their resiliency and their connection.” (38:36)
