Episode Summary

As a doctor of alternative and functional medicine, Dr. Kalanick always knew she wanted to pursue science and medicine. She studied pre-med and applied to pharmacy school. She soon began suffering from headaches, felt very fatigued, and couldn’t work out. As her mom was diabetic she thought she might be as well. The accurate diagnosis turned out to be Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). Once she began managing her illness she decided she no longer wanted to help people feel better by giving them medicine so she turned to naturopathic medical school and learned acupuncture school. She now helps women with hormone issues, and places emphasis in her practice on strength training and exercising properly for your hormones.
