The Bio-Mechanics of Reproductive Health: Part 1 with Dr. Damian Kristof and Dr. Andrea Huddleston

In part one of our two part podcast, Dr. Andrea Huddleston, naturopath and chiropractor and expert in women’s health and reproductive medicine, speaks with our ambassador Dr. Damian Kristoff about women’s health and reproductive dysfunction.

Andrea shares two of her top five causative factors associated with hormonal dysfunction starting with stress and spinal position, both of which are strongly associated with hormonal imbalance and uterine positioning. Andrea and Damian discuss the prevalence of stress and ways it influences hormonal levels and the role the autonomic nervous system plays on uterine function. The position of the spine and the connection it has on uterine positioning and function is discussed as we learn about the signs and symptoms associated with an anteverted and retroverted uterus.
