How to Optimize Hormonal Health and Embrace Spiritual Mindsets with Dr. Tabatha Barber

core connections Feb 08, 2024

Real talk: Hormonal health and weight management may feel like an uphill battle...but do you believe it's possible for YOU?

If not, it’s time to start.

And you can do this by looking at your symptoms (such as weight gain) not as a sign of betrayal from your body but rather your body trying to communicate with you. 

In fact, this is exactly what Dr. Tabatha Barber, the incredibly talented and brilliant functional medicine doctor/podcaster/author, explained so beautifully during our discussion (which I'm so EXCITED to share with you.)

In this episode, you'll learn how to optimize hormonal health (in a way that positively impacts your body and mind), the importance of fasting with gut health, and how overexercising is impacting your body. We also touch on the connection between the body and mind and how faith and spirituality may be the missing piece to achieving your health goals.
