Aging comes with a lot of pains and, for women, hormonal imbalance tops their list of physical and emotional discomfort. Cynthia Thurlow is a nurse practitioner, fasting and nutrition expert, and a two-time TEDx speaker. She is joining this episode to talk about her advocacy of helping women age gracefully without the pains of weight gain and hormonal issues. She talks about the importance of carb cycling and taking a proactive step to managing hormonal imbalance, allowing the body’s hormones to work harmoniously together. She believes that fasting and nutrition are key elements for better physical, mental, and emotional health.
“We can create a very personalized food elimination diet. We can reap the benefits of famine and fasting if we do it the right way.”
