We have surveyed tens of thousands of women about menopause and overwhelmingly, the biggest struggle is menopause weight. Making the decision to change is the first step. However, taking the action that keeps you going can sometimes be overwhelming and complicated. In fact, we can even quit before we start! I know I have! Willpower is unreliable and there’s a lot of confusing information about what we should eat and how much exercise we need. And many times our self-esteem and negative self-talk get in the way. That’s where this guest comes in. Greg Cormier is a behavior change specialist and transformation coach specializing in weight loss for women. Greg simplifies the weight loss journey, and makes it easy to stick with a program that leads to success, even for women who have tried everything or have never had success in the past. Many of those Greg works with see changes in their bodies in just a short time, without restrictive diets or counting calories. During this episode, we discuss how to stay motivated when trying to change our habits, the role community plays in success and why people are so drawn to challenges when it comes to creating successful change in their lives. Greg also shares real-life examples of women who have found success in a 28-day challenge that he facilitates. If you feel hopeless about managing your weight - this episode will give you a lifeline. Watch it and gain the inspiration you need to kickstart your weight loss journey now.

Our health and well-being have a lot to do with what we eat, and contrary to what most medical institutions say, fat is not our enemy. Science and sound research show that it is key to improving our metabolic health leading to a long and healthy life. I am so excited to share this interview with Dr. Cate Shanahan. Her book, Deep Nutrition: Why Your Genes Need Traditional Food, has been life-changing for me and my students. When I applied a few simple tweaks based on her recommendations, I started to feel better and more healthy. In this podcast episode, Dr. Cate Shanahan shares the dangers of seed oils and their history. We also talk about how saturated fat got labeled as ‘bad’.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Weight gain puts most menopausal women in a tight spot. The extra pounds would have been tolerable if shedding them were easy—but it's not. And so sometimes it can be easier to stay in MENO-Misery and feel like a loser when the hard work doesn't pay off. But what exactly is the culprit behind this? In this podcast episode, I talk with Dr. Avishkar Sabharwal. He shares with us his personal story about obesity and how he was able to conquer it. Dr. Sabharwal explains the cause of obesity and what role medication plays in managing this disease. He also gives practical recommendations for those who want to manage their weight and why you don’t have to starve or deprive yourself to lose those extra pounds. Check out this episode today!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Have you ever felt like you have a calling to do something greater and create an enormous impact with the things you are passionate about? Most of us will answer yes to these questions, but so few respond and take the first step--because exciting as it may seem, these two are always scary: change and the unknown. But how long will you wait and deny yourself the chance to a better and purpose-filled life? In today’s podcast, I have a fantastic conversation with Kim Walsh Phillips. She is a living testimony that it’s possible to pivot towards what you’re passionate about and even profit from it. Kim shares what she feared if she took the leap and how she ultimately surrendered in the end. We also talk about how our passions are not an accident, what a zone of genius means, and the ultimate shortcut to success. This conversation is worth listening to. Tune in today!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | We all want to grow and flourish, but more often than not, life happens and before we know it, we are living inside of setbacks. These setbacks to achieving our goals sometimes occur due to unmet needs and a traumatic past. That wounding can have a significant impact on us, and when those wounds go unaddressed, we may feel like life just wants to bring us down and even unsafe in our bodies. However, there is a solution, and it is not too late to live your best life yet! In today’s podcast episode, I welcome back Deirdre Fay. We talk about what becoming safely embodied means. She explains how we can start listening to ourselves, understanding shame, and how we can feel alive all the time, especially for those who are going through therapy.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Many menopausal women may feel like no one understands them, and they have to tread this phase of life alone, confused, and always in want of feeling better. The physical symptoms can be quite debilitating, and the emotional turmoil within doesn’t help either. But, it doesn’t have to be that way, not ever, because you deserve better. You deserve to be in a community, to feel good, and to reclaim the opportunity that this new phase offers. In this week’s podcast episode, I talk to one of our MENO-Mates, Tammy LeMesurier. Tammy shares what made her join The Menopause Movement and how being in a community helped her. She also talks about the intangible improvements in her life upon entering the program, encouraging other women to invest in themselves, for they deserve better. Tune in to this episode today.

This can result in frustration and hurts relationships. We all want to become better parents, but to do so, we need to slowly transition from what we’re used to, to what works. In our episode today, I welcome my guest, Chris Reavis. He is the proud parent of an autistic child. He shares what conventional parenting is and why it does not serve the needs of children in the spectrum. Chris also advises on how you can get your children to listen to you most of the time.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Any woman who gets to live a long life will experience menopause and possibly all the disruptions that come with it. However, some women will go through menopause (and possibly before) with more pronounced symptoms than others due to ADHD. This may seem surprising since ADHD is a common diagnosis in children, not adults. Further, the diagnosis is more often associated with male gender. If you feel like the disruption is just too much to bear, this information may be what you need to manage your symptoms effectively and navigate this phase of life without having to feel like you’re broken and alone. In today’s podcast episode, I welcome Diann Wingert. Diann is a psychotherapist with over 20 years of experience and is also a coach who helps driven but distracted women who are audacious enough to start their own business at midlife and beyond. We discuss how ADHD is the underlying core problem for anxiety and depression and the common misconceptions around ADHD and midlife. She discusses the gender bias in identifying ADHD and what a woman who thinks she has ADHD can do now. Tune in to this episode and learn more about what ADHD is in midlife and menopause.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Headaches can be a fact of life during menopause. The pain can sometimes get quite debilitating and we search for a solution--any solution to relieve it. The problem with any quick fix is that while it can provide temporary relief, it rarely addresses the root cause of the suffering. However, when we truly take the time to tune in to our bodies, we may find that these kinds of pains are the body’s signal that it needs and wants something from us. This is a return visit to the podcast for my guest Dr. Michelle Veneziano. She was also a guest in our 79th episode The Healing Power of the Tongue. I highly suggest that you tune in to that episode first if you haven’t heard it yet as the things we discuss here are related to that one. We covered a lot of things in this podcast like the reason there is suffering and why it’s important to listen to our bodies when it is going through pain. It also gets even more interesting as we discuss the reason behind developing a spiritual practice to get our bodies into a rhythm. She also shares the role that magnesium and water play in headaches. Listen to this episode today!

But while it’s easy to daydream about what it would look like to acquire those things, the reality is that most of us don’t even know where to even begin. In today's episode, I welcome Ryan Levesque, the CEO of The ASK Method® Company and one of the industry's highly-regarded personalities. He is a best-selling author of books on entrepreneurship like Choose which you’ll have access to through a link I shared in the resources section. Ryan talks about the four kinds of entrepreneurs and gladly shares the steps he took in starting a business and what he learned from it. He also explains why entrepreneurs should not focus all their energy on perfecting everything. Tune in to this episode and start your entrepreneurial journey today!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | You’ll never understand just how disruptive menopause is until you experience it yourself. It’s a totally different phase in life that sometimes you feel like there’s no getting out of it. Menopause, however, is not just about disruption but also a time of opportunity and reinvention. Experiencing the reward of reinvention, however, takes conscious work and effort—or even a series of trial and errors. The good thing is that you don’t have to go through all of it alone! Support and help is available.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Are you having a hard time sleeping? Are you experiencing sudden weight gain? Do you feel like you are always out of energy that you can’t seem to manage putting one foot after the other? You consulted many doctors and went through numerous therapies but you’re still not seeing any improvements to your well-being. While the above symptoms are similar to menopause there’s a need to dig deep and check whether you’re also experiencing adrenal fatigue due to continued chronic stress.
12 Jan 2021
SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Menopause is downright disruptive. Many women experience joint pains, hot flashes, muscle cramps, and in some occasions, arthritis and even autoimmune disorders for the first time in midlife and menopause. While menopause is the privilege of a long life, there are some challenges. And knowing how to address these challenges in a holistic and healthy way will make it much smoother sailing.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Anxiety is a very disruptive condition and can increase during menopause. Dealing with bouts of overwhelm, depression, apprehension is difficult and it sometimes feels like there’s no way out, but one’s battle with anxiety doesn’t mean that it’s the end, there is a way to overcome it.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Have you ever lost your keys, grocery list, or forgotten a phone number?. It happens to all of us and primarily when we are preoccupied. However, if you find it a recurring theme in your everyday life, disrupting you from doing the things you usually do and is troubling or concerning you, it is really helpful to get evaluated to see whether it’s dementia or if it’s just a brain fog issue.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | The human body is fascinating, unique, and powerful. The tongue, for instance, although a small part of the body, when in its correct, default position, has the power to heal and improve our overall health. Mind-blowing right? This isn’t usually discussed even in the field of medicine but is a sure and safe path towards wellness.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | The subconscious mind or that inner critic that we usually identify as that voice inside our head is actually more than that. The reality is it plays a huge role in the way we live and how we identify ourselves. If you are looking to change anything in your life, understanding the subconscious mind is key. Menopause is a time of transition and change and it is the perfect time to look at the beliefs that are driving our behaviors.
