It’s around these times that we need hobbies, and it could be writing. For me, I've had to really look deep into my own pain as I started to work on my memoir, and that has fueled some really great bits of writing. But when you're birthing something from nothing, there's going to be a lot of mistakes and that's okay. If you need a sign from the universe to take your idea into motion, this is it!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Anxiety is probably the number one complaint along with weight gain that I hear from women who are in menopause. It is a thought that when unobserved, can get us into a pattern that is filled with fear and worry. And when we're filled with fear and worry, we're not able to attract abundance to our lives. How we talk to ourselves is really important because we can perpetuate our anxiety by continuing to say the same things. We talk more about that in today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast where I give you a step-by-step process to kick your anxiety right to the curb. Tune in today!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | We only have a couple of fears like the fear of falling and the fear of loud noises. Other than that, everything else is manufactured because of beliefs that we created as we grew up, like failure. Anxiety is a very disruptive condition and can increase during menopause, but there’s a way to overcome it and I talk more about that in today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast with Vikki Yaffe.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | We're almost conditioned with the way the media portrays stress—that when you feel a certain way, the thing to do is to reach for a substance. When we identify the emotions associated with whatever we do, we get to talk about it, understand where it came from, and see how it affects our personal mastery and relationships. In today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast, I’m with a professional chef who created menopause-friendly recipes with me, Cassandra Cotoia, and we talk about cultural beliefs about drinking, how food connects families, and so much more.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | Have you ever been triggered? I thought about a couple of experiences I had when I was pretty early in my surgical career and had some not so pleasant interactions with colleagues who were questioning me. And because I came from a patriarchal home where my opinion never mattered, I was always really defensive when my colleagues would challenge me. I always say that change starts with awareness. To be free from our subconscious programming, we need to be present so we can recognize the past that's coming in, name it, and put it together in a different way. My friend and colleague Deirdre Fay shares how we can do that in today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement podcast.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | For women in menopause, putting on a bunch of extra weight can turn into a negative spiral. But it’s not your fault if you can’t shift the weight even if you’ve tried so many times. There are steps for you to take so you can manage hormonal weight gain in menopause. In today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast, I’m with Dr. Avishkar Sabharwal who is a diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine, and the American Board of Lifestyle Medicine. We talk about what causes obesity and the role your environment plays in your weight, the role medication plays in helping to manage weight, and so much more.
8 Feb 2022
SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | There are supplements that can help you manage menopause: DHEA, biotin, evening primrose, black cohosh, thiamine, and so much more. But before you go to the nearest drugstore, it's important to buy supplements from a reputable company. Today's episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast is an informational one, and we’re back with Dr. Sharzad Green as we talk about the eight B vitamins and why they're necessary, plus the importance of them when it comes to specific symptoms such as hot flashes, sweating, sleeplessness, and mood disturbance.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | With the whole Cinderella complex and the media telling us that healing is outside of ourselves, 30 million women are suffering from chronic pelvic pain, with debilitating symptoms like urine leaking, painful sex, prolapse, and weak or non-existent orgasms. And almost nobody ever wants to talk about it. In today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast, I’m with Isa Herrera, a licensed physical therapist as well as an expert in integrated pelvic floor therapies, as we show you how to give your lady parts the first aid and love that they need to be happy.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | I would never buy an over the counter hormone without expert advice. On one of my birthdays, I had a burger with some cheese on it, french fries, and two milkshakes. The next day, I had shoulder pain that I never had, which then made me think that I can't out-supplement a bad diet. I take supplements for my overall health, and I recommend you do too. But how much can you really take, and more importantly how can you stay consistent especially if you’re like me who would get really tired of taking a lot of pills? Dr. Sharzad Green and I discuss that and more in today’s episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast: Supplementation for Menopause Part 2.
18 Jan 2022
SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | I would never buy an over the counter hormone without expert advice. The closest thing I come to is phytoestrogens like flaxseeds, and it’s something you can’t really take too much. We have been taught by the medical establishment that a pill can fix our symptoms, but I’m a firm advocate of taking nutrients from whole foods. But since carrying a container of bone broth everyday is not really convenient for most of us, how can we get supplements like calcium, vitamin D, and fatty acids without breaking the bank while avoiding adverse side effects? As Dr. Sharzad Green says, “It’s better to do it scientifically rather than shoot in the dark.”

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |I was never one to let anyone tell me what I could do. Back in high school, I took a Biology class and I remember how my teacher looked straight at me and said, “I know who's going to do well in this class and who's not.” as if he expected me to fail. Have you had something similar happen to you? For Kelly Lewis who grew up with naysayers in her family, “Tell her she can’t” became a personal motto when she found her purpose, and started helping other women become unstoppable badasses. And you can be one too.
