Quote of the Week

Health care appears to be in the dark when it comes to the underlying factors that promote the most common cause of infertility: An increase in androgens, or male hormones such as testosterone.

 Why are male hormones high in so many women, sabotaging their reproductive health? Insulin.

Dr Datis Kharrazian

So, the obvious thing to do there is to check your androgen levels via your GP or me, and take steps to balance those and your insulin regulation.

For hormones, do a DUTCH Complete so we can see how you are metabolising your androgens – the surface level can be misleading. See hormone testing here. Then, watch my video on how to interpret the DUTCH results, or download the Hormone Results Guide.

Next, check your insulin metabolism here and use the Belly Fat diet – which is all about insulin control – to correct it.
