Adrenals, Thyroid & Ovaries: Connecting the Dots

December 10, 2019

EP #124: Adrenals, Thyroid & Ovaries: Connecting the Dots with Aviva Romm

I love interviewing doctors that not only have an education in natural medicine, but who make it their lifestyle. Aviva became a midwife and herbalist in her teens and it wasn’t until she had delivered thousands of babies that she decided to go to med school to become an MD. She shares instances when the medical system historically and even still today -- fails women and how passionate she is about integrating natural and allopathic medicine. If you look at her instagram page, you see that herbs are a way of life for her and she walks her talk.

We talk about:

  • Your thyroid: is it balanced or over/under-active & what to do about it
  • Signs of adrenal fatigue / chronic fatigue: Are you burned out? (not sleeping well, weight change, anxious, aches and pains, lack of focus)
  • How to choose which adaptogen herb to nourish your adrenals
  • How your adrenals and the thyroid affect your ovaries and uterus
  • Endometriosis, fibroids, cysts - why we see so much today
  • Estrogen excess in women today & simple ways to reduce the effects of it
  • How our environment affects our microbiome & how to repair the gut
  • Natural remedies for cold & flu season
  • How being an herbalist/midwife before getting her MD affects the way she sees her practice and patients
  • Understanding how history shapes medicine & making sure women are being treated properly by doctors today (in both senses of the word)
  • Actual bias in patient care that still exists today - what to do if you have an unfavorable experience with a doctor
