A Favorite Theme Revisited - Body-Wise: Functional and Integrative Medicine for Women's Wellness with Aviva Romm MD

podcast about integrative medicine and women's wellness with Aviva Romm

The research on women’s health issues is an underserved area of study. Many women resort to becoming citizen scientists to sort out their symptoms in an effort to put the puzzle pieces together to achieve wellness. Conventional medicine rarely uses natural methods or plants to help women achieve proper wellness, opting instead for pharmaceuticals, which normally only serve to hide symptoms. To discover ways to put the art back into the medical arts, Harvesting Happiness Podcast Host Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with a healthcare practitioner with over 30 years of women’s wellness experience, Aviva Romm. Aviva shares key takeaways from her book, Hormone Intelligence: The Complete Guide to Calming Hormone Chaos and Restoring Your Body's Natural Blueprint for Well-Being, and details her unique journey through medical school.
