Do you suffer from PMS symptoms such as fatigue, bloating cramps, or anxiety? Do you know if your hormones are in balance?

In today's two part series we’re covering all things from healing your hormones, to stopping PMS in its tracks, to never having a hot flash again, with some of our favorite doctors and nutritionists.

In Part 1, Suzy and I are throwing it waaay back to our chat with functional medicine practitioner Rich Jacobs, M.S. whose mission is to put his health detective skills to the test and find the root cause of your symptoms. Stay tuned because Rich reveals how to reduce PMS in six months or less.

Then, I’m talking to The Miracle of Bioidentical Hormones author Dr. Micahel Platt, about why progesterone may be the secret to healing a multitude of conditions such as hot flashes, ADHD, ADD, fibromyalgia, weight gain, and more.

Then in Part 2 of this series we'll hear from Dr. Neal Barnard who I interviewed last year about his book No More Hot Flashes! The New Science of Food, Hormones, and Health (which many of you won a copy of in our last swag bag contest) And, stay tuned because Dr. Barnard will reveal how to get relief from the most severe and troubling menopause symptoms - without drugs.

And finally, Nutritionist Alexa Schirm is here to talk about the hormonal effects triggered by artificial sweeteners and how to restore metabolic function and manage hormones naturally.
