On this episode of the Wealthy Wellthy podcast, I talk with Dr. Shawn Tassone. Dr. Tassone is board certified in obstetrics and gynecology, and by the American Board of Integrative Medicine. He holds a medical degree, in addition to a PhD in mind-body medicine. He is highly regarded as a patient advocate. His work includes studies and publications on spirituality and medical care, whole foods to heal the human body, and integrative medicine to heal where Western medicine falls short, not to mention he’s a leader in the field of hormones for optimal health and longevity.
During our conversation, Shawn shares a personal story of losing his mother to ovarian cancer and despite his vast knowledge of women’s health, he was left feeling helpless not being able to help her. This led him to begin researching integrative medicine and spirituality, which ultimately resulted in him acquiring his PhD in mind-body medicine. Dr. Tassone walks a balance between allopathic and alternative medicine understanding there is a place for traditional medicine as well as holistic healing depending on the patient’s condition and preferences.
Shawn is an expert when it comes to women’s hormones, he shares tips and warning signs we all should be aware of and what to do when you just don’t feel right. He is a big proponent for normal hormone levels being specific to each individual, even if your levels are in the “normal” range they may not be normal to your body. We discuss how hormones play a crucial role in how we feel, think, and behave. He discloses that for some even if they’re off just a bit, they can negatively impact sleep, weight, mood, and success. Just a few lifestyle tweaks can make a radical difference to not only how we can feel better in our own bodies, but also our relationships and performance. In other words, if you want to feel more love, make more money or just feel better and have more energy with good vibes you’ll wish to listen in.
