This week on the podcast Mikki speaks to Naturopathic Doctor Carrie Jones all about hormones. Dr Carrie is an absolute wealth of information when it comes to hormones, and Mikki and Carrie talk about why our hormonal health isn’t a focus for us growing up in health/sex education, the best way to test cortisol and sex hormones, the importance of testosterone for women, some misinformation regarding women’s cortisol levels compared to men, and how stress impacts our hormone levels and what to do about it.

Mikkipedia is an exploration in all things health, well being, fitness, food and nutrition. I sit down with scientists, doctors, professors, practitioners and people who have a wealth of experience and have a conversation that takes a deep dive into their area of expertise. I love translating science into a language that people understand, so while some of the conversations will be pretty in-depth, you will come away with some practical tips that can be instigated into your everyday life. I hope you enjoy the show!
