Menopause Mastery: Menopause & Gut Health – How Your Microbes Change Hormonal Health

Want to know what’s really happening with your hormones? Just take a look at your poop.

This week, Betty talks about the link between hormonal health and gut health. You’ll learn exactly what the microbiome is and how it’s created. It turns out that the microbiome is incredibly important. In fact, you couldn’t survive without it.

Then, she’ll walk you through the roles of the microbes and how they impact your hormonal health. The liver also has a huge role to play. By walking you through the stages of liver detoxification, Betty will teach you how the contents of the liver end up in the gut.

Your stomach or digestive problems might be a gut problem, and you might not even know it. Looking at your gut and bowel movements is incredibly important to your overall health, especially if you’re a woman in the transitional period of life.
