I don’t know about you, but every day I feel the connection between the mind and body growing stronger. The mind-body continuum plays a huge role in women's health and how the body was designed to heal itself. Dr. Laura Belus knows this all too well as a naturopathic doctor specializing in health optimization, hormone balance, skin health, and anti-aging medicine.

Today Dr. Laura is here to shed some light on ways that you can optimize your hormones and use your intuition to guide you towards the right treatment for you. Dr. Laura believes in the individual's ability to find common patterns and identify what is working for their body, and what is not, to find the right mode of healing for you. Learn how the immune system and thyroid can be connected to your hormone concentration, the connection between the way your body deals with environmental triggers and stress, and understanding the correlation between psychological issues and chronic pain.

Hormone imbalance is steadily increasing in women both young and mature, and it takes some effort to figure out how your changing progesterone and estrogen levels could be impacting your health. If you are struggling to piece together how your HPA access, adrenal functions, daily stressors, and cortisol levels are impacting your pelvic pain, Dr. Laura is the expert for you.

If you continue to plague your system with daily stressors, excess estrogen or toxic chemicals you will never be able to set your body up for success. Listen to Dr. Laura’s advice and learn how to create a personal plan to start you on a path to optimal hormonal health and recovery.
