This week, I’m talking to Dr. Jaclyn Tolentino. Jaclyn is a Board-Certified Family Physician, an integrative and functional medicine practitioner, and a breast cancer survivor. She has received extensive training through the Institute for Functional Medicine, and additional training in integrative oncology. She is a frequent contributor to publications including Vogue, Well+Good, CNET, and Bustle, and practices a comprehensive, patient-centered approach to whole-body wellness as Senior Doctor on the Virtual Team at Parsley Health.
In this episode, Dr. Jaclyn and I discuss how surviving breast cancer changed how she thinks about health, weight gain and weight loss during the pandemic, stress and hormones, why our bodies are responding in ways they never have before, striving to be healthy vs. fat phobia, and why testing is important to better understanding our bodies.
