Better Everyday # 53 Chicory, Quinoa, CRP, Thyroid Lab Values, Stress, Fertility and Taking DHEA
We answered just three questions in this episode but they were seriously super-sized and jam packed with details! We talked about chicory, quinoa and CRP (what to do if it’s elevated) and sussed out the differences between functional and conventional thyroid lab ranges so you can know if you’re really low or normal thyroid. Discussed HPA axis dysregulation and the impact cortisol problems and stress have on fertility and covered several aspects of estrogen dominance including whether or not supplements to help with estrogen metabolism can lower estrogen too much. Finally, a favorite topic of Dr Brooke’s: the downside to long term DHEA supplementation. And finally within the DHEA question we covered several causes of swelling in hands and feet. These were great questions ladies, keep them coming!
