Gynecologist basically told me “one you ease up on your training it will sort itself out”. It does take time since blood work has to be monitored - for me monthly – I send him the results and he reviews and researches and comes back with comments and questions.
Year after that hormones are still not normal so I asked to see an endocrinologist. I trust Pauline’s recommendation plus since he is her doctor I don’t have to explain the lifestyle I lead since I say it similar to Pauline’s. A lot of doctor’s don’t agree with a female being so lean and seems like they are reluctant to help. He has been such a fountain of information and he is really accurate. So far I’ve been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and my doctor in Bermuda prescribed the wrong medication with wrong dosage. Ullis has corrected that and I feel great and have a lot more energy than before.
A few nights before, Harrison Ford had walked into the joint practically unnoticed, but when a fire truck drove by, patrons stood up and cheered.
She basically told me “once you relax exercising your hormones will go back to normal”.
Year later hormones are not normal so I asked to go see a gynecologist.
Guess what the Endocrinologist said – the same thing my family doctor and gynecologist said – once you’ll relax you’ll be fine. Fast forward to June 2011 and after following the fighter diet lifestyle for a year and following the fighter diet Facebook group and becoming educated thru Pauline Nordin’s knowledge and experience and the importance of getting blood work/salvia testing for adrenals done, I personally reached out to Pauline to ask her opinion on my internal health/female hormones. Because I was unknowledgeable and thought that my female hormone issues would not be resolved until I gained body fat I felt I had no hope. I’m so grateful to have stumble across Fighter Diet Facebook page and gain more knowledge on the medical front.
She was more knowledgeable than my family doctor, gynecologist and endocrinologist combined. Thank you Pauline for your comprehensive knowledge of not only training and diet but medical especially involving female hormones, cortisol, adrenals, hypothyroidism and the importance of blood work for hard training individuals.
Granted, it's also a celebrity profile — well, a profile of Angelina Jolie — and so calling it a 9/11 story may sound like a stretch. It's a 9/11 story because it's a celebrity profile — because celebrities and their perceived power are a big part of the strange story of how America responded to the attacks upon it.And no celebrity plays a bigger role in that strange story than Angelina Jolie.
