Episode Description

Five element theory is one of the major systems used in Chinese Medicine to diagnose, treat and recover connections within the body, organ systems and environment. Dr. Ashley Abbs uses the theories of wood, fire, water, wind, and earth to help direct her in her acupuncture, herbal and lifestyle advice for those struggling with fertility or hormone imbalances. She will explain her gentle approach to find where the imbalances are in a patient’s life.

Dr. Risk’s Thoughts

Hormones are a part of everyone’s journey.  Most people just feel a small influx as they are stressed, and for some people, it can be a huge challenge.  For me, living in a world with so many xenobiocs, which create so much estrogen, I have found it very challenging to keep my hormones in balance.  My only solution has been using natural herbs and supplements, as my body was never able to tolerate hormones.  I have always been grateful to have this option.
