I had the pleasure of interviewing my very own doctor, the incredible Dr. Jasmina Dedic-Hagan on this episode of The Hormone Balance Solution podcast!
We covered a wide range of topics related to hormonal health, sleep, bone health, and the role of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
It was an eye-opening conversation that provided some valuable insights on what happens to us through perimenpause and our menopausal journey.
Here are a few of the things she shed light on:
1️⃣ Prioritize Sleep:
Lack of sleep can have a significant impact on hormone balance and overall health. Develop a sleep routine, practice good sleep hygiene, and consider natural supplements like melatonin to support healthy sleep patterns.
2️⃣ Understand Perimenopause:
Perimenopause is a transitional phase that occurs before menopause, characterized by hormone fluctuations and changes. It's crucial to educate ourselves about its effects on our bodies and seek help when needed. Our understanding and support during this stage can make a world of difference.
3️⃣ Focus on Metabolism, Not Just Weight:
Instead of fixating on the number on the scale, shift your focus to metabolic health. Prioritize a balanced diet, exercise regularly, and monitor blood sugar levels. Managing hormones like cortisol, insulin, and estrogen is key to achieving hormonal balance and maintaining a healthy weight.
To dive deeper into these topics and gain more valuable insights from Dr. Jasmina, listen to the full episode on The Hormone Balance Solution podcast.
And if you're looking for personalized guidance and support, don't hesitate to reach out to Dr. Jasmina through the Linden Health website for telehealth consultations.
Here's to taking charge of our hormone balance journey and empowering ourselves with knowledge, holistic approaches, and supportive strategies!
