EP 366 – When Hormones Rage: PMDD and Women’s Silent Battle with Shalene Gupta

“Women's hormones are just completely under researched and there's not enough education. There's not enough knowledge about this. Even at the research level, there's not that many people looking at the connection between mood and hormones.”
- Shalene Gupta

In this enlightening episode of Superwoman Wellness, Dr. Taz warmly welcomes Shalene Gupta, a journalist and author deeply invested in the exploration of women’s health issues, particularly Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD).
