072: All about the DUTCH test with Ali Damron, LAc

Hi friends! New podcast is up with my friend Ali Damron, all about the DUTCH test. The DUTCH test is a comprehensive hormone test that tests for so.many.different things, from sex and adrenal hormone amounts and how well your body is making and processing these hormones. It can give valuable insight for hormone imbalances and help your healthcare provider craft an individualized plan based on your results. Ali’s been a lifesaver in helping me get my postpartum wacky hormones sorted out for good.

Here’s what we talk about in this episode:

Background info and what inspired her to become an acupuncturist. What types of issues does she help her clients resolve?

What is the DUTCH test exactly and how does it work?

Why it’s important to have a licensed practitioner go over DUTCH test results

Books and resources she recommends

Tips to help balance hormones and stress levels

How often should you re-test?

And so.much.more.

Here’s some info about Ali if you haven’t met her before:

I am a wife, mother to two sweet little boys, a licensed acupuncturist and a certified personal trainer for over 11 years. I value health and family more than anything else.  It’s my mission to educate women about the importance of health and teach them how to be healthy. There is so much information and misinformation out there that most of the women I work with are confused and don’t know what to believe or how to get healthy.  I work with women to provide natural approaches to healing and get them looking and feeling their best. I offer lots of services including personal health consultations, courses, and resources for pregnant women, birth attendants and birth professionals to teach them acupressure points so they can feel empowered with their own health.
