Episode 27: Using DUTCH hormone Test with Dr. Carrie Jones

Dr. Carrie Jones and I went to medical school (National College of Natural Medicine) together. She was a brilliant, awesome friend then, and still is. What a privilege it’s been to watch her grow into the expert she is today.

Radical claims are made routinely without much evidence or oversight. Pricing for therapy and protocols used vary widely, although anyone (even those participating in research trials) can expect to spend thousands of dollars.
