On May 10, members of the CMJ Masterpass joined me and Dr. Carrie Jones in a live Zoom meeting to ask us anything about hormones, and here’s the full recording! We talk about things like:

What time of day is best to take T4 and/or T3?
How to use pregnenolone to manage perimenopausal insomnia?
Is insomnia different between people who are and aren't on HRT?
Estrogen’s effect on the kynurenine pathway could be keeping you up at night.

What about men with high estrogen?
Over-the-counter supplements to lower SHBG and increased free testosterone? Mycotoxins
Iodine, fatigue, and “detox” reactions.
Loss of libido and sexual sensation with the LEEP procedure: could progesterone and vitamin E help?
What else?
Should I be on testosterone replacement therapy? Supporting hormones with nutrition.
Why is early morning waking a characteristic symptom of depression and what other conditions have early waking as a symptom?
Causes for night sweats in men?
Nutritional advice for breast cancer prevention, and the HRT question.
Water retention near menstruation.
Why would a woman have no cycle? Why would a woman have an anovulatory cycle? What can be done to reverse hypothyroidism other than taking thyroid hormone?

All this and much more!
