EP268: Transforming Negative Thought Patterns for Hormonal Balance with Megan Blacksmith

Many people today suffer from hormonal imbalance. 

And while dietary change, detox, and supplements can be extremely helpful, sometimes it’s not enough. 

In fact, repeated negative thoughts (and thought patterns) can release stress hormones that wreak havoc on hormonal balance no matter how many other positive changes you make. 

So if you’ve done all the right things and STILL suffer from hormonal issues, then today’s podcast with certified holistic health coach, FDN practitioner, and hormone expert, Megan Blacksmith of Zesty Ginger is for you! Here are some of the topics we cover:

  • The food sensitivity that can cause only neurological symptoms
