Today I am thrilled to be talking to Functional Health Coach, Christine Garvin! She specializes in helping women heal their gut and achieve hormone balance. In our conversation, we are diving deep into the topic of fibroids and ovarian cysts. We kick off with Christine sharing her story of having a fibroid surgery go terribly wrong—to the point of developing sepsis! We cover the difference between a fibroid and ovarian cyst, where to start in preventing both from developing, and the role hormone imbalance plays. Christine details foods and supplements to help with estrogen detox and how to begin Seed Cycling for hormone balance! We also talk greatly about gut health and incorporating stress reduction techniques into your day so you don’t have to deal with these health issues later in life.
