I am so happy to welcome Dr. Lisa Weeks to our podcast for an in-depth look at stress. Lisa is a practising Naturopathic Doctor here in Toronto. She is also the proud mother of a toddler, and currently co-hosts the ‘Perimenopausal Mamas’ podcast. Lisa works with people of all ages, from infants to seniors, and she strongly believes that lifestyle and dietary changes are the foundations to a successful treatment plan. Get out your pen and paper - you are going to want to take notes during this amazing episode.
Lisa starts off by explaining just what a Naturopathic Doctor is, and the road she took to becoming one. She then goes on to discuss the reasons that so many people are tired these days, and she describes the General Adaptation Syndrome, The Stress Bucket analogy, and the common symptoms one experiences as they are approaching the exhaustion phase. The importance of listening to your body, the impact of stress upon the immune system, perimenopause, and the effects of cortisol on other hormones are also discussed. Lisa finishes by offering her professional recommendations regarding nutrition, natural supplements and remedies, lifestyle, and setting boundaries. Dr. Lisa Weeks, as you will soon discover, is a brilliant woman who has so much to share with us all – take this opportunity today to soak in her truly remarkable wealth of knowledge, skill and advice.
