I met the lovely Dr. Lauren Noel at a conference and was blown away with her energy and passion for helping people (as well as by her singing voice… she is amazing!).
I was shocked when she mentioned that she struggled with hormone imbalance and other problems for years, because she is the picture of health. We had a long (and nerdy) discussion about health and I’ve come to greatly respect her work.
Dr. Lauren Noel is a naturopathic doctor who has treated over 5,000 patients. She owns Shine Natural Medicine in California, where she treats patients locally and all over the country and she also runs the top rated podcast, Dr. Lo Radio.
Listen in on this episode as we discuss the problems Dr. Lauren encounters most in her practice and how she is helping her patients live healthier lives.
In This Episode, You’ll Learn
- Why Dr. Lauren is seeing so many patients with Vitamin D deficiency and why she doesn’t think lack of sunlight is the only cause
- The thyroid and magnesium link and how to fix it
- How to know if iron levels are low (or high)
- Why Dr. Lo agrees that light (or lack of light at night) is super important (she probably wears orange glasses too!)
- The reason night lights are linked to a higher risk of leukemia
- Why Dr. Lo is unapologetic about making time for self care (and why you and I should be too!)
- Her three rules of health (that she has written down and committed to)
- How Dr. Lauren walks three times a day!! (and why she considers this one of the most important things she does
- Why Dr. Lauren often turns to nutrient IVs in her practice for patients with deficiencies and hormone imbalances
