Steroids, particularly anabolic androgenic steroids (AAS), are very popular in all sports, but particularly strength and physique sports (bodybuilding, Weightlifting, powerlifting, and Crossfit). There's a huge taboo around AAS, but an even bigger taboo surrounding women and androgen use. I'm so excited to bring you part 2 with Victoria Felkar, a researcher whose research is quite literally titled, "Women and Steroids." We're diving into that exact topic in this episode.
Today we talk about:
-Side effects of high levels of androgens in women (whether they have endogenous hyper-androgenism or they're supplementing with androgens)
-Are the side effects of high androgens permanent?
-Managing female anabolic androgenic steroid use
-Coming off of AAS
-Hormonal and systemic changes when you take androgens/systems effected when you're on androgens
-Things you need to do to regain normal health/function after using AAS
-How long does it take to regain normal health after drug use
-Is there an intelligent/"healthy" way that women can use anabolics
-Being a conscious consumer of your own health
-The ignorance surrounding women and AAS
-The anabolic:androgenic ratio and what it means
-Are your symptoms from AAS or are they something else?
-Polypharmacy in steroid use
-The purity of non-pharmaceutical AAS
-So much more!

Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.
My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at foursigmatic.com/emdunc.
