Today is an episode for the ladies. I’m talking with Michael McEvoy about the advantages and disadvantages of hormonal birth control.
Michael McEvoy FDN, CNC, CMTA is a sought after nutritional consultant. He is often the “go-to practitioner” for complex health challenges and cases. His ability to identify hidden blocking factors makes him one of the most skilled nutritional consultants today.
He is the founder and CEO of www.MetabolicHealing.com, where he has authored more than 300 research-oriented articles related to: individualized diet, endocrine health, genetics and methylation, blood sugar handling, women’s health issues, environmental toxicity and more.
Michael is also a co-founder of www.GetRidofPMSnow.com, a website aimed at helping women overcome premenstrual syndrome through individualized nutrition. Michael consults with clients all over the world and operates a distance nutritional consulting practice.
I think this is going to be one of those episodes that I refer people to over and over again because this is such an important topic. And, once again, mainstream media and mainstream medicine seem to be missing the boat here.
You’re going to learn about the basic function of birth control and how birth control affects weight loss, nutrient absorption, gut health, thyroid function, mental health, as well as issues with copper toxicity.
If you’re thinking about starting on birth control, hopefully this will help guide your decision. If you’re already on birth control, hopefully it will bring more awareness to problems to look out for, ways to mitigate any damage, and help guide you to making sure you’re doing what’s best for your body.
If you have questions about this show, please leave them in the comments. I’ll have Michael stop by to answer any of the more complex questions.
