Show Notes

In this episode, we're discussing the issue of silent systemic inflammation, and I have a PSA for you... What’s supposed to make you healthier — exercise — could actually be increasing your risk of chronic health issues.

In this episode, you will learn a step-by-step system for how and when to pay close attention to estrogen and inflammation. I detail the symptoms of problematic inflammation and its sneaky tactics. And of course, I share workout tips to help improve your body’s ability to manage inflammation problems that arise. 

First, I illustrate a personal story about how exposure to toxic mold attacked my immune system and triggered inflammation. As a result, I learned that declining estrogen was also impacting my body. I provide perspective around the link between an imbalanced workout program and systemic inflammation and provide three areas of assessment so you can troubleshoot.. Plus, I detail how to track and connect your symptoms and share a common mistake when considering the effect estrogen has on the body. As you’re on the journey to improved physical resilience, you deserve to feel great. And I promise that feeling is 100% possible — no matter what health issues your body throws your way!

You’ll also gain research-backed resources in support of your success, and hear stories and lessons from my 30 years of experience. If you are a woman over the age of 35 noticing unexpected allergies and skin issues, digestive challenges, depression, anxiety, and/or deep fatigue. This episode is for you.
