Add Heart Podcast – Hormones on Edge: Exploring the Stress–Hormone Connection

Guest: Dr. Tara Scott

In this episode, our guest Dr. Tara Scott, known on Instagram and TikTok as the Hormone Guru and founder of Revitalize Medical Group, talks with our host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D. about the connection between today’s stress and hormones. She addresses important questions: Is stress accumulation contributing to hormonal imbalances and depression in teenage girls, infertility and menopausal problems in women, or causing low testosterone in men? Is there a link between stress and endocrine imbalances in insulin, glucose, thyroid, or cortisol levels? Should physicians do more to include stress assessments during hormone balance evaluations? 

Dr. Scott shares with us her answers to these questions and how she works with patients to get the right tools to help them rebalance their hormones. She offers suggestions for better protecting yourself now from stress-related diseases you could otherwise face later in life — and why heart-based techniques such as those offered by HeartMath® are a key part of her practice.
