381 – Nutrition for Women’s Hormonal Health

Making Sense of Women’s Health with Dr. Marita Schauch

In this interview, Dr. Marita Schauch explains the role of hormones for women. Women deal with a lot of hormonal challenges and these challenges change over time. In addition to the “female” hormones women can also be challenged by imbalances with the adrenal and thyroid hormones. Dr. Schauch will also discuss Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Dr. Schauch works with women in a clinical setting and is able to help women medically and nutritionally as a Naturopathic Physician. As such she is able to evaluate women more holistically and call upon the best nutritional products for her patients. Dr. Schauch will explain some of the products from Natural Factors WomenSense® line of target nutritional solutions that she uses with her patients.

WomenSense® Relief Products

WomenSense Products

WomenSense® has a full line of women’s products found exclusively in natural health stores providing safe, multi-strategic approaches for health and support during stress, perimenopause, menopause and occasional, mild thyroid fluctuations. WomenSense®  formulas help you feel like yourself again by providing better sleep, less stress, more energy, improved moods, easier periods, improved non-cystic acne, fewer hot flashes and reduced night sweats.*

No two women experience change in the same way. The challenge is to discover what works best. The right product or combination of products is whatever works best for you. This is a process of discovery and you may have to experiment to discover to the best outcome.

Each WomenSense® product contains many naturally-sourced ingredients that go beyond reducing hot flashes and night sweats to relieve your most bothersome menopause symptoms, such as irritability, occasional sleeplessness, fatigue, weight management, and mood and memory issues*.

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)

This is a very important topic that Dr. Schauch wanted to discuss specifically. “Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a hormonal disorder common among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods or excess male hormone (androgen) levels. The ovaries may develop numerous small collections of fluid (follicles) and fail to regularly release eggs.” MayoClinic.org

IMPORTANT: If you have PCOS see your health care provider. Nutrition is not a treatment for medical problems. However, by nourishing the body with targeted amounts of specific nutrients, the body can do amazing things. Good nutrition is always foundational to good health. As is proper medical care. We need them both, but don’t confuse the two.

WomenSense® PCOSense

PCOSense® combines myo-inositol and D-chiro-inositol at a 40:1 ratio along with folate and vitamin B12 to help support normal ovarian function, egg quality, and healthy blood sugar levels already within the normal range.*
