141: Discussing Lichen Sclerosis and Gut Health with Teresa Alasio, MD

Hey there!

Today, we’re covering a topic that’s particularly close to my heart: lichen sclerosis. 

Even though it’s quite common, I’m willing to bet that most of you have never even heard of it. 😱

Why? Because lichen sclerosis is severely under-diagnosed and under-reported, leaving women to painfully suffer from this condition without getting the results they need from traditional medicine. 😪😖

💬“But what is lichen sclerosis, and why does it often go untreated?”

Well friend, I have a special guest joining me today – and we are going to tackle these questions and so many more! 💃💃

Dr. Teresa Alasio is a Board-Certified Medical Doctor who practiced pathology for many years before turning to functional medicine, which reinvigorated her passion for helping others. 💫🩺🏥

As the owner of Intentional Self, she focuses specifically on gut health and the mind-body connection which is why Teresa is the perfect person to help us understand the root cause of lichen sclerosis and where to start when it comes to helping our patients. 🗺🌿

So, get ready to take some notes 🖊and listen in to my conversation with Dr. Teresa Alasio as she brings to light more about this debilitating condition and what YOU can do to mitigate the effects of lichen sclerosis! 💪💪
