Hormone-Healthy Eating with Dr. Alan Christianson

lifestyle thyroid-healthy bites

Hormonal imbalance can really throw us for a loop! And the symptoms of hormonal imbalance overlap with many thyroid-related symptoms - the thyroid is part of our hormonal system, after all! So, how can we support our hormonal balance and help address common hormone-related symptoms like fatigue, brain fog, insomnia, and excess weight... with FOOD? That's what we're going to discuss in this episode of the Thyroid-Healthy Bites Podcast with my special guest, Dr. Alan Christianson, NMD. 

Dr. Christianson is a Board Certified Naturopathic Endocrinologist who focuses on thyroid care, so we’re talking to someone who is very much a thyroid specialist today. He is a New York Times bestselling author whose most recent title is The Hormone Healing Cookbook: 80+ Recipes to Balance Hormones, and Treat Fatigue, Brain Fog, Insomnia, and More. 

We'll be talking about and taking a peek inside the book, and exploring the role food can play in helping us balance our hormones, and relieving some of these common symptoms.  

In this episode we'll discuss:

  • Dr. C's personal journey that inspired him to become a doctor and author
  • The most common hormone-related symptoms
  • How to eat for hormone health
  • The importance of protein
  • Superstar foods for hormonal balance
  • Dr. C's surprising discoveries about soy for thyroid patients
  • Our favorite cooking techniques for making real food recipes real life-friendly

I've interviewed Dr. C several times, and I always learn something surprising and new from him. Plus, it's always fun to talk to a fellow cook and food lover. His recipes are gorgeous and absolutely mouthwatering. I think you're going to love this show!
