51. Biohacking Hormones With Dr. Tara Scott

Tara Scott, MD, FACOG, FAAFM, ABOIM, CNMP is a renowned hormone expert and certified regenerative and functional medicine practitioner. She first became involved with hormone and integrative medicine while practicing as an OB/GYN. Her empathy for patients experiencing hormone-related issues led her to become trained as an advanced fellow and certified by the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. The evidence-based practices she employed helped many patients conquer chronic wellness issues. She then started Revitalize Medical Group, where she serves as the Chief Medical Officer. In 2016 she obtained an additional board certification in Integrative Medicine. In this episode, Dr. Scott and I dive deep into a discussion around hormonal health (men and women), the natural lifestyle shifts that can impact hormonal balance as we age, and why "testing not guessing" is critical to achieving optimal performance. Dr. Scott was traditionally trained as an MD, and graduated medical school at the age of 23. Driven to take a more natural approach to her practice, and through working at solving her own issues with infertility, she was able to cure her own endometriosis! Dr. Scott is passionate about educating the medical community on the advances in evidence-based hormone therapy, and lectures around the community to raise awareness about wellness and hormone balance.
