Hormone-Healthy Eating with Dr. Alan Christianson
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!
