004: Dr Patrick Flynn – Balancing female hormones

Dr. Patrick Flynn is also known as The Hormone Whisperer. He’s well-known for his passion for women’s health and his incredible ability to help women take charge of their health and balance their hormones. He’s a dad of four, an author, founder of The Wellness Way (with clinics all over the US with their first international locations opening soon), and will also be featured in upcoming episodes of Dr. Phil and Dr. Oz.

He is a wealth of knowledge and has been on my personal healthcare team for 9 years now. He helped me balance my hormones when we were having difficulty conceiving and has helped me maintain 2 healthy pregnancies and recover from surgeries with his care. He looks at the full picture when it comes to women’s health and gave me a lot of beneficial tips to manage stress and keep my levels stable.

I’m so excited for you all to hear from him. He’s extremely passionate about what he does, and it was an honor to have him on the Healthy In Real Life Podcast.

    Excited to listen. But I had no idea you had trouble conceiving. How did I miss that!

      thank you! i didn’t write about it until after we were pregnant. i didn’t want to post on the blog about it because i didn’t want it to become a topic of conversation in our family… i was just waiting to see if it would happen

        I listened today. Very cool. I come from a background of infertility and we built our family via adoption… In which I’m very content and happy with. Now that I have my boys I wouldn’t have it any other way. But obviously I probably do have major hormone imbalances. I had the mindset back then that if God wanted to give us biological children then he would make it happen. He wouldn’t need my help. But from a health and longevity standpoint I know it would be good to look into my imbalances. Loved the podcast with him. Great choice on your part.

    So, I’ve listened to all your podcasts and usually listen on Google play and cannot figure out how to rate and review. I even commented on the rafflecopter a while back that I did because I intended to but couldn’t see where to do it!! BTW I loved the most recent hormone one and already know the friend I’m sending the link to immediately as she has endometriosis and is trying to navigate through all that. So any tips on how to get to the rate and review?? Thanks for all your info!!

      thank you so much- i really appreciate it!! i think you can only rate and review on stitcher and iTunes. i don’t think that it’s an option on google play, unfortunately.
      i’m so happy you’re enjoying the episodes!

        Ah, OK thanks!!

    That’s official, you’re now my new running best companion 😉
    Your choice of subject and guest is really great, I struggled as well for two years to get pregnant so that episode had a particular resonance to me. It was not stressed though but the cause was a too fast weight loss during my early 20s that disrupted a lot of things. I’m now blessed with 10 years old gorgeous twin boys and a 6 year old sweet daughter!

      ahhh the highest compliment- thank you!!
      so happy to hear that everything ended up working out for you <3

    I listened to the episode and found the information helpful/interesting, but I just finished Flynn’s book. I honestly can’t believe you let me read that. His bottom line is that we should all test our hormones, but talk about putting men and women into boxes. He also calls other physicians idiots a record number of times. While I don’t at all think mainstream providers have it figured out it’s completely ridiculous to use the word idiot to describe any of them.
    I’ll be getting my hormones tested, but that was absurd.
