On today’s episode of The Spa Dr. Podcast, we are discussing how to avoid hormone disrupting chemicals in your home. My guest is Dr. Lindsey Berkson who has been a leader in functional medicine and women’s health care for decades. She was a scholar at an estrogen think tank at Tulane University where she worked with the top scientists that have discovered how hormones function and dysfunction. Dr. Berkson is now a professor for physicians, pharmacists and other health care professionals for continuing education courses on hormones, gastroenterology (and the gut-hormone connection), nutrition and the environment. Dr. Berkson has authored 21 books and hosts the Dr. Berkson’s Best Health Radio. She had breast cancer 24 years ago and has made “remission” her “mission”. Dr. Berkson now specializes, with science based functional medicine tools, in working with breast cancer survivors to do the same.
On today’s podcast Dr. Berkson explains how a group of chemicals in our environment called Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals (EDCs) are linked to number of health issues that are on the rise. She walks us through a typical day and how we’re exposed to these chemicals in our homes. AND, she shares practical tips to reduce these exposures and boost detoxification to help protect our health today and for generations to come.
