Quotes

“You’re definitely going to be better off doing more balanced meals where you’re focusing on getting a whole bunch of vegetables, ideally two cups of vegetables per meal and your plate is mostly vegetables and then maybe a palm-sized serving of protein of any kind and a tablespoon or two of really healthy fat.” [25:06]

“When a woman walks into my practice and has PCOS I want to get her hormones in balance and cycling and regulated as quickly as possible. Now that sounds very straightforward and easy. Just get the hormones to have a good feedback loop and cycle. But the thing is that this is a whole body multi-system issue, so that’s highly dependent on a couple of other really important body systems, namely our liver and detox system.” [37:19]
