We cover so much ground in this deeply holistic episode with Dr. Sara Gotffried. Dr. Gottfried is a scientist, researcher, medical doctor and seeker. She always says that she practices medicine, but doesn’t treat problems. Rather, Dr. Gottfried specializes in root cause analysis, helping people feel fully alive and balanced from their cells to their souls. If you’re currently struggling with a hormonal condition and don’t know where to begin, this episode is for you! She offers up the loving reminder that the misery of your body being out of whack is so much worse than the work that it takes to fix it.
