#040: Balancing Your Mood & Hormones with Functional Medicine with Dr. Deborah Matthew

Ep. 40

When someone mentions “balancing your hormones,” where does your mind go?


If you’re like most, Estrogen and Progesterone are the first to come to mind. But achieving brilliant health is about so much more than just the sex hormones.


Join Functional Medicine doctor, Dr. Deborah Matthew, as she describes the delicate dance between your sex hormones, your thyroid, and your cortisol levels.


If you’ve been struggling with daily fatigue, unexplained weight gain or mood swings… …even if you’ve been told your levels are within a “normal” range… ...then don’t settle for that kind of “normal.” You have options and Functional Medicine may have the answers you are looking for.



“When I was able to resolve my hormone issues… I got my life back.” - Dr. Deborah Matthew


“I’m not against medication, but too often, they’re just a band-aid. They don’t really get to the root of the problem.” - Dr. Deborah Matthew


“Even if you’ve been told “you’re fine” by a doctor, it’s not normal to continue to have symptoms all the time.” - Dr. Kyrin Dunston


“Cortisol, the stress hormone, affects all your other hormones.” - Dr. Deborah Matthew


“One of the first signs of adrenal problems is that you have no tolerance for the normal, everyday stresses that life throws at you.” - Dr. Kyrin Dunston

“You can get well, get off prescription meds and love the way you feel if you can get your hormones balanced.” - Dr. Deborah Matthew “Her Brilliant Health means giving yourself permission to put your own health first.” - Dr. Deborah Matthew
