The average woman will spend one third of her life in menopause, and yet the public discourse and medical advice around this life stage is sorely lacking. Will hormone replacement therapy give you cancer? Will you be stuck on drugs for the rest of your life? Should you just wait it out and let nature run its course–or fight like mad against menopausal symptoms? On this week’s podcast, we meet a medical doctor committed to giving women more options, more agency, and a better quality of life during menopause and beyond.

Listen and learn:

  • Myth vs reality about cancer risk and HRT
  • When and how to start thinking about HRT, and when to come off it
  • The power of food and lifestyle interventions for hormonal balance
  • Whether horse urine vs. yam derived hormones matter?

Have you ever felt excited about a new form of exercise, only to get sore muscles and then joint pain as soon as you start to see results? You take a couple days off, try ice and painkillers, but the pain always seems to come back and you’re not sure what to do about it. Should you keep going? Stop moving? See a doctor? Or try something else? On this week’s podcast, we’ll attempt to demystify the healing process.

Listen and learn:

  • Why patience might be the top necessity for healing
  • The value of cross training for injury prevention
  • How to use muscle strength to combat joint laxity
