Season 3: Episode 5

Published October 10, 2023

Breast health is a topic often overlooked in conventional medicine. In this new episode of the DUTCH Podcast, we don’t shy away from tackling this vital aspect of women's health. Join us as we explore breast health from an integrative perspective with Dr. Lauren Young, ND, a passionate advocate for empowering patients to take control of their health. 

Traditional medicine often focuses on screening for diseases, but Dr. Young recognizes that many women don't fit the disease model but still require support and guidance. It's all too common for conventional doctors to rule out cancer, and then not have the appropriate tools to address breast pain. 

There are hormonal, dietary, and structural factors that contribute to breast pain and providers must investigate the root cause using a comprehensive approach. You can't just take a pill! Healing involves examining various components, including diet, genetics, family history, and lifestyle. 

Join us for this eye-opening conversation with Dr. Lauren Young, ND, as we take a holistic and integrative approach to understanding and improving breast health!
