About Kyrin Dunston, MD

In this episode, I sit down with Kyrin Duston, board-certified OBGYN who practiced clinical obstetrics and gynecology for 20 years until she suffered from her own midlife chronic health challenges including painful fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, IBS, obesity, anxiety, and depression. Dr. Kyrin discovered and implemented root cause medicine approaches and healed. Today Dr. Kyrin helps women in midlife resolve their own hormone imbalances through her Midlife Metabolism Institute and The Hormone Club. She also has a podcast called “Her Brilliant Health Radio” where she aims to deliver exceptional wellness insight for women.

We discuss the difference between conventional and Functional Medicine, why it’s necessary to treat autoimmune conditions at the root cause level, critical lifestyle shifts you can start making today, and so much more.

If you’re struggling to find answers to your hormone concerns, you will leave this listening feeling hopeful and inspired with tangible action steps you can take right away.


You deserve to have brilliant health. It is your birthright.”
