  • How do you feel about testosterone replacement during peri and post menopause when free to is non existent. Plus what are some natural ways to help boost testosterone before replacement? 
  • How can you tell when your body is metabolically recovered from over dieting? Also, how can you tell if you are clearing inflammation from exercise (i.e., what markers can/should indicate recovery besides fatigue or muscle soreness)?
  • Best approaches when you have hypothyroidism and possibly adrenal issues.
  • How do you assess when to start bioidentical estrogen?
