Podcast Episode


Women’s hormone health is one of the most poorly understood areas in medicine, not only among patients but also among practitioners. There is a great deal of misinformation out there and as a result many women end up suffering from their symptoms. One of the conditions that causes the most suffering is Endometriosis, which we discuss today. Endometriosis, a condition in which cells similar to the lining of the uterus grow outside the uterus, causes painful and debilitating symptoms to many women. Oftentimes, an effective solution is not available for these women, prolonging their suffering. Dr. Tassone is one of those people aiming to treat these patients effectively and holistically to improve their quality of life!

We discuss: 

  • His background, journey into OB/GYN and Functional medicine and why he chose that route?
  • A little background on Estrogen, Progesterone, and Testosterone; their functions and what types of imbalances you normally see with them.
  • What is Endometriosis and why is it caused?
  • What types of symptoms do we see with Endometriosis and how do we diagnose it?
  • Conventional ways of treating Endometriosis vs. Integrative approaches.
  • Brief discussion on bioidentical hormones for the average patient to hear.
