Do you ever feel like your hormones control your life?


Your hormones affect almost every system in your body, so when you’re going through hormonal changes, it can really wreak havoc on your life. I asked Dr. Sara Poldmae to join me for this episode of the Leading Lady podcast to talk about what’s going on with our hormones in midlife and how to take back control. 


You don’t have to feel terrible all the time. There are simple and gentle things you can do to support your body and regulate your hormones to improve your symptoms, whatever they may be. Headaches, fatigue, mood swings, and aches and pains are all common complaints, but there are so many other things you might be experiencing that you never knew were caused by hormones. Let’s unpack it all in this episode. 


Dr. Sara Poldmae is a doctor of acupuncture and Chinese medicine and a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner who has been practicing holistic healthcare since 1998. She focuses heavily on women’s healthcare, including fertility, PCOS, PMS, and menopausal issues, but she enjoys working with a wide variety of complex health issues. 


Topics covered in this episode include:

  • How hormones affect almost every system in your body 

  • Challenging the norm that you’re supposed to feel bad during menopause and hormonal changes 

  • How to feel your best at this time in your life


If you want to feel your best in midlife, this one’s for you.
