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.
