A reader suggested this, and I think it’s a great idea. If you are starting from the beginning and willing to dive in and do your own research, then this is the place for you. These topics do build on each other, so if you’re stuck somewhere it could be a good idea to go back to the beginning and work through it. You can also listen on the To Health With That Podcast:
This podcast breaks up BIG health topics, like MTHFR, into small, easy bites that add up to in-depth knowledge. All in ten minutes or less.
We’ll talk about why folic acid can be toxic, how the MTHFR enzyme is in bed with estrogen (scandalous!), why it matters to be able to turn some genes off, and why high-folate foods make some people feel depressed, and so much more

There are lots of red flags in every day life that might indicate a hormone imbalance or other problem that could have fertility consequences. This week we’ll talk about the first ones, including:
- Skipped or missed periods
- Heavy bleeding or flooding
- Scanty bleeding (even though it makes for a nicer period)
- Abnormal hair growth
- Hair loss
Next week, we’ll go over more red flags because women’s hormones can go crazy in so many ways.
