Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, signaling a slew of physiological processes, including your metabolism, mood, sexual function, and more.

Here to help us understand this complicated endocrine language is hormone health specialist Kyle Gillett, MD.

A dual board-certified physician in family medicine and obesity medicine, Kyle is an expert in optimizing hormone levels to improve overall health and well-being in both men and women. He earned his medical degree at the University of Kansas School of Medicine, practices at the Gillett Health Clinic in Olathe, Kansas, and is the host of The Gillett Health Podcast.

In this wide-ranging conversation, we cover what hormones are, the key role hormones play in our overall health, and how we can leverage what Kyle calls the six pillars of health to optimize hormone health. Furthermore, Kyle explains how diet, exercise, sleep, stress management, sunlight exposure, and spiritual practice are more powerful than any medication or supplement out there.

“Your diet isn’t a diet at all. It’s a lifestyle and it’s evidence-based habit formation.”


Other topics explored in today’s conversation include:

  • What is a hormone and why are they important;
  • how hormone health changes depending on sex, age, and lifestyle;
  • the role of hormones in virility, fertility & hair loss:
  • how hormones affect weight & metabolism;
  • hormone health & PCOS, Endometriosis, Fibroids, Menopause;
  • the role of the microbiome in hormone regulation; and
  • many other fascinating topics.

The visually inclined can watch it all go down on YouTube. And as always, the podcast streams wild and free on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

It was an honor to converse with Dr. Gillett—a fresh, new mind making big waves on the podcast circuit. Passionate and whip-smart, I enjoyed every minute. And I promise you will walk away from this episode armed to take your health to the next level.
