In today’s podcast, I chat with my friend and fellow laboratory geek Mark Newman, founder and president of Precision Analytical (creators of DUTCH), about his recent publication [Evaluating urinary estrogen and progesterone metabolites using dried filter paper samples and gas chromatography with tandem mass spectrometry (GC–MS/MS)], smartly published in an open access – and reputable – journal, BMC Chemistry, so it’s available to all, free of charge.
Cortisol and Sleep: The HPA Axis Activity Connection. Research in this area has been bursting forth recently, so I’m thrilled to feature a sponsored blog from Integrative Therapeutics written by one of my mentors, Tori Hudson, ND.
