Hey hey! SO excited for today’s podcast episode because it’s with a person that I respect greatly and have learned so much from him over time: Dr. Patrick Flynn! OG blog readers will remember Dr. Flynn from the days when I was trying to get pregnant with Liv. He became a member of my health team and helped me rebalance my hormones. I’ve worked with him on and off for the past 12 years! He has so much knowledge to share and I was thrilled when he said he’d come back on the podcast for another episode. You can check out our last episode together here!

– Examples of stress and how it affects people differently

– Why is stress not a big topic in modern medicine?

– Dr. Flynn’s approach to dealing with stress

and so.much.more.

Here’s more about Dr. Flynn:

Dr. Patrick Flynn, DC is the founder of The Wellness Way clinics. In his youth, he experienced a series of events that led him to discover immune and neurological issues. This discovery prompted Dr. Flynn to begin his health journey, define his life purpose, and initiate the pursuit of his education.

It ultimately led him to his dynamic career, where he has created a totally different approach to healthcare. He has attended numerous colleges and taken countless classes from prestigious learning institutions including Palmer College of Chiropractic, National Health Sciences, and the Harvard Medical School HMX fundamentals online certificate program in immunology, all of which have honed his focus on hormones and the immune system.

Dr. Flynn is the bestselling author of the book, I Disagree. His wildly popular public seminar, The Hormone Connection, has been viewed by hundreds of thousands of people. He has trained thousands of doctors and his network is now comprised of over 80 clinics around the world.
