Cramps, acne, bloating. Irritability, anger, moodiness. You know what I’m talking about – most of us suffer from a combination of these, and a host of other symptoms, every month. We have come to accept it as part of being a woman. But according to Rich Jacobs, PMS is not something we have to submit to – we can fight back.
At just 35, Rich suffered a host of health issues – food intolerances, low libido, weight gain, complete exhaustion, candida overgrowth. The search for a solution lead him to study functional diagnostic nutrition—four years on, he is symptom-free.
Rich is now a functional medicine practitioner whose mission is to put his health detective skills to the test and find the root cause of your symptoms. Functional medicine takes a holistic approach, looking at both the physical body and what is going on in your life, your past, your feelings.
What you’ll discover in this episode:
- The ins and outs of functional medicine
- What happens in the body when you’re stressed
- Why you might have low cortisol levels (yes, even when you’re stressed)
- How to reduce PMS in six months
- How Suzy’s red wine allergy was reversed!
- The most common modern food allergies
- Why HOW you eat food affects your body as much as what kind of food you eat
