Today, on Live Simply, The Podcast, I’m talking to Dena from Back to the Book Nutrition. Dena is a registered dietitian and holistic nutrition coach.
Think of today’s podcast episode as a class on hormones 101. Dena answers the question, “What exactly are hormones?”and explains the purpose of our hormones. Dena also shares how our lifestyle choices affect our hormones and what causes hormones to become imbalanced.

Q1: Tell us about yourself and your story.

Q4: How do our lifestyle choices affect our hormones?
Q5: What causes our hormones to become imbalanced? What are the symptoms of an imbalance?
Join me again next time as Dena comes back on the podcast to talk about hormone imbalance, including ways to determine an imbalance, how to naturally balance hormones, and how to support and love our hormones. She also answers your questions about hormones.
If you missed last week’s podcast episode about self-care, now is a great time to go back and listen. Last week’s episode on self-care and this week’s episodes on hormones go hand-in-hand. Intentionally taking care of ourselves is absolutely necessary. Self-care is about a lifestyle, not a one-time spa activity or bubble bath. Last week I shared how to approach self-care from a practical, balanced approach by asking yourself three questions.
So I guess I thought that weird periods were just part of being a woman! I’ve had my hormones tested once because of acne flaring up after my youngest night weaned – but now I’m realizing I need to be paying even more attention to it. Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. (I’m not super looking forward to giving up dairy and sugar though. Just to be honest…)
You’re not the only one who thought that, Marie! But I’m so glad you’re learning otherwise now and that the interview was helpful to you! 🙂
This was so much fun – thanks for having me on, Kristin! 🙂
Loved having you on, Dena!
