Infections + Stress = Chronic Pain
Infection + Stress = Chronic Pain
In this episode, Lyndsay Soprano and Dr. David Bilstrom discuss infection, stress, and chronic illness/disease and how we can get ahead of it at a young age before it creeps up and wrecks all kinds of havoc in our bodies, health, and lives.
But also how to help FIX it after you think it might be too late.
Dr. Bilstrom speaks about Adverse Childhood Events (ACEs) that inform chronic illness and autoimmune disease. They discuss chronic illness from his personal eyes in his family which led him to get involved in asking the question WHY are people, especially women, getting so sick?
This led to the conversation of something called Estrogen Dominance. In his words, it’s the most dangerous disease for women.
Estrogen dominance can lead to so many horrible things in women from ovarian cysts fibroids, endometriosis, bad menstrual cycles, and more. It also drives excessive worry, anxiety, panic attacks, and insomnia.
80% of people that get auto-immune disease are women. And if you get estrogen dominance before menopause, you have a 5.4 times greater risk of getting breast cancer before menopause. And a 10 times greater risk of malignant cancers your entire lifetime–the ones that travel.
LISTEN. AND LISTEN NOW.
