Podcast Ep 17: Birth Control, Hormones, and Lifestyle Medicine with Gene Blake

How many of us ladies have taken birth control pills? How many of us have had hormone concerns? I took BC for years trying to clear up my acne and relieve some of my PMS symptoms. Little did I know that they were actually causing my body harm and just covering up a deeper issue. On this episode of the podcast I chat with Gene Blake, a nurse practitioner at Rhett Women’s Center. We talk about her transition from the Western medical mindset of prescribing pills to get rid of symptoms to her more functional and lifestyle medicine approach of getting to the root cause. We chat everything birth control, hormones, and general women’s health. We touch on PCOS, bioidentical hormones, and the impact we have on ourselves and those around us when we really take control of our lives and health.
