LISTEN AGAIN: Achieving Optimal Wellness through Nutrition

Kim Ross is a Certified Nutrition Specialist, Certified Dietitian Nutritionist (NY), Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist (FL) and Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner.

In this interview, she highlights numerous ways in which women can improve their health naturally. Listen in to learn about:

  • What nutrients do hormones need?
  • How can a nutritionist help with hormone imbalance?
  • Nutrition vs Dieting: What is the Difference?
  • How to make incremental shifts in your eating and lifestyle to decrease toxins and increase health
  • What are the symptoms of malnutrition?

“To simplify it, women have a natural rhythm. We function on a moon cycle (a menstrual cycle) in addition to our circadian rhythm, which repeats approximately every 24 hours. When we sleep, eat and move our bodies actually does matter. We have a lot of ups and downs with our hormones throughout the month. What you eat changes that affect. What time you eat and how you eat changes that. If you eat in a good mood or bad mood, that affects things. Our organs detoxify at different times. Our cortisol hormones, in addition to other hormones, increase and decrease at certain times. Our body temperature increases and decreases at certain times.

We need to listen to the female intuition as to how our bodies are functioning. I think that people could listen better to what their body needs. If you’re craving something like sugar, maybe you need vitamin C or water. Listening to what you’re craving tells you what nutrients your body might need.

Also, respecting and paying attention to the hormonal cycle, which affects the decisions we make every day.” – Kim Ross
