Ep. 45 – Hashimoto’s, Hormones, and the Gut: An MD’s Unconventional Route Back to Health
“I can look back and now I feel so much stronger. I’m 51 now, and compared to when I was in my late twenties and early thirties, I feel so much better now.”
– Dr. Farah Sultan
In this episode, I’m talking with Dr. Farah Sultan, an MD who shares her personal health turnaround. In many ways her story looks like what so many of us women experience: crushing fatigue, gut issues, weight gain, headaches, hair loss, skin issues and more.
Her OB/GYN said her symptoms were normal after having a baby and being a stressed-out medical resident, but her intuition told her otherwise. And like so many people we’ve interviewed, she was told her conventional lab tests looked normal.
When she was able to get more extensive testing, she was ultimately diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, and found underlying infections and food sensitivities.
Women’s Hormone Imbalances and More
