Ep. 264 Peri/Menopause are a Natural Function of Aging: See you later, Ovulator!

I am honored to connect with Esther Blum today! She is the bestselling author of “Cavewomen Don’t Get Fat,” “Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous,” and most recently, “See Ya Later, Ovulator!”. Esther currently maintains a busy virtual practice where she helps women balance hormones, lose stubborn body fat, and treat the root cause of health struggles.

Today we speak about medical gaslighting, how weight gain does not have to be a part of aging, andropause and menopause, and the Women’s Health Initiative. We dive into physical changes and significant symptoms during perimenopause and menopause, the role of the pelvic floor, deciphering what the dreaded “menopot” is, what does not work, and advocacy in terms of testing and hormones. We also address constipation, weight loss resistance, and how our tolerance for alcohol changes as we age, especially when using bioidenticals or hormone replacement therapy.

Ep. 263 AMA with Ben Azadi: How to Unlock Optimal Health

Today I am honored to connect with my good friend and multiple-time past guest, Ben Azadi!
Ben was most recently with me on Podcasts #149 and #101. He is a prolific social media star and a fasting and ketogenic dieting expert. He is known as “The Health Detective” because he investigates dysfunction and educates, not medicates, to return the body to normal function. Ben is the founder of Keto Kamp and the popular Keto Kamp podcast.
Today, Ben and I use an Ask Me Anything format and dive into listener questions. We talk about the nuances of macronutrients, fasting, and supplements. We discuss gut health and how changing your diet and intermittent fasting can help the body realign and be better balanced. We get into troubleshooting with fasting, including insomnia-related issues, and we also discuss the DUTCH test and how it can be beneficial in conjunction with other lab tests.
I love doing AMAs, and I hope you will enjoy listening to my conversation with Ben Azadi.
