This week’s episode talks about how men and women can be more mindful of their hormone levels, how to understand gender differences, and the modern obstacles to women having normally produced estrogen.
John also discusses the link between testosterone and meditation, how one can be less judgmental towards how others think, and the biggest estrogen producer there is.
On how estrogen is produced, John has this to say, “Estrogen is produced when you feel dependent. This is like a big revelation. A lot of research went into this. When women feel dependent on someone for something that they can’t get themselves, estrogen levels go up. That’s what estrogen is about.”
