Our guest today, Dr. Aviva Romm, is no less than “The Face of Natural Medicine in the 21st Century,” according to Prevention magazine. And while she has almost three decades of exemplary medical training and a thriving practice, it’s her role as a woman and mother that really brings her here today. Together we’ll tackle a potentially life-saving question: how do you navigate the differences in healthcare for women? Women are more likely to have their symptoms dismissed or opinions discounted. They’re also more likely to stay quiet about pain or fatigue. My gender certainly affected the way doctors treated me after my son Grant’s near-fatal accident. If you’re a woman or have a mom, wife, or daughter you love, this is one episode you can’t afford to miss.
