When Was the Last Time You Checked Your Hormones?| Dr. Tara Scott 

Hormonal health is not often talked about, though it affects everyone. It starts at puberty, goes through pregnancy, postpartum hormones, perimenopause, menopause; it is constantly in our lives. Yet, I was a little stunned at how uninformed a lot of us are. Today, we are speaking to Dr. Tara Scott.

This discussion will open your eyes to what you need to be putting up with and what you don't.
