The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Jul 12, 2022

In this week’s episode of The Girlfriend Doctor, we had a conversation with the amazing Kate Vazquez. Kate is the co-founder and medical mastermind behind Radiant Health. She has worked as a Physician Assistant in cardiology, the emergency room, and urgent care. Today she shares the secrets to preventing estrogen dominance which can be detrimental to a woman’s physical, emotional, and psychological health.

In this talk, Kate gets into what estrogen dominance actually is, the 5 main telltale signs of hormone imbalance, how to develop estrogen metabolism, the importance of staying in a parasympathetic nervous system, and more. Of course, we also talk about how cleaning our gut can have tremendously significant results when starting to rebalance the hormones in our bodies.

So often, we may think that depression, anxiety, and overall stress can’t have many physiological effects on our bodies but that is far from the truth. 

Kate makes it very known that stress can be of the most exacerbating factors when it comes to hormone imbalance, so it’s immensely important to find ways to manage stress, and it starts with eating clean, exercising, and other practices such as meditation or reading. Tune in to find out more key tips to overcome hormone imbalances to begin living happier and healthier! For those who want to take it a step further, be sure to pick up her book, Estrogen is a B*tch (2021), available on Amazon!

  • “Estrogen dominance is a medical term… what is really means is that there is an imbalance of our hormones, especially our estrogen and progesterone.”
  • “If you think about it, our hormones are constantly fluctuating and so we go through menopause. And so before that time, we have a lot of estrogen in our system before ovulation, which is in the first half of our menstrual cycle.”
  • “So we always have a lot of estrogen in our system but we need that balance with progesterone in the remedial phase to help balance that out… So the problem is when there isn’t enough of that progesterone to balance out that estrogen.”
  • “What I discovered is there are 5 telltale signs of hormone imbalance. The first one is the dysfunctional period that you were talking about. And that’s because we’re not getting that increase and decline of the progesterone.”
