Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.

Dr. Anna Cabeca on The Cravings Whisperer with Alexandra Jamieson

The Cravings Whisperer Podcast with Alexandra Jamieson

Hello my crave bears. How are you doing this week?

I get so many questions about hormonal cravings all the time! Are they menstrual? Are they menopausal menopausal? What we do know is that hormones definitely affect how we feel and crave, and it’s so awesome that we have the opportunity to learn more about the connection between the two.

So this week, I chatted with expert Dr. Anna Cabeca. She is a certified gynecologist, Obstetrician, anti-aging specialist, and is certified in regenerative and functional medicine. What a pro, right?

If you’ve heard the term functional medicine but aren’t really sure what the heck it means, listen in for a peek inside this patient-centered method. Who knows, it could be a perfect fit for you!

We know that us crave bears are complex creatures – we’re human! We want to feel good, we want to like food, and we of course want to like our bodies. If you’re feeling like you want more support, please head over to my Facebook group and join the conversation!
