How Your Genes Affect Your Hormones with Dr. Mansoor Mohammed

This week we welcome Dr. Mansoor Mohammed. Mansoor is the president and chief scientific officer of The DNA Company and is considered to be a pioneer in medical genomics. He’s a classically trained molecular immunologist who has received academic and industry awards, published numerous papers, and holds patents in the general fields of molecular diagnostics and genomics research. In this episode, we discuss the relationship of Functional Genomics and Epigenetics, both informing and transforming information on hormones from genetic testing, and Androgen Dominance and Estrogen Dominance. We also dive into the impact of oral contraceptives and their impact on genetic variances as well as, an in-depth breakdown of the three Estrogens and Estrogen Metabolism.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
