Overcoming Hormonal Imbalances: PCOS, Hashimotos, and More

With Angelique Panagos

Sugar. It’s the one ingredient that so many of us have an unhealthy love affair with that we can’t quite figure out how to give up. It’s in practically everything that is packaged and in many restaurant meals. Sugar is one food that UK-based nutritional therapist and Functional Medicine practitioner Angelique Panagos credits with her many health issues, including hormonal imbalances that caused years of pain and suffering for her and her family.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Angelique about her personal story revealing her battle with several eating disorders, Hashimoto’s, PCOS, and more. Angelique also shares her very personal account of having two miscarriages, a devastating occurrence that 15-20% of women face. In this podcast, you will get tons of practical tips, insights, and reflections that will leave you with a much deeper understanding of why so many women face these health issues. Angelique is on a mission to educate women about hormones and how to balance them.

I know you’ll be captivated by Angelique’s story in this episode of The Broken Brain Podcast as I was. Enjoy.
