Dr. Ralph Esposito is an integrative physician, a medical consultant, a hormone aficionado, a research analyst, an acupuncturist, an author and on a personal note, I feel is one of the coolest doctors out there sharing LEGIT evidence-based health information with the sole intention to help people live healthy, long-feel great lives.
We rapped out in NYC where Ralph resides and enjoyed a really fun, geeky deep dives in hormone health, insulin resistance, lifestyle habits that support hormone health, sleep health, and A LOT more. Ralph is rad you guys- straight up.
