Going through the symptoms can be a lonely journey especially if you don’t know where to start or how to manage them. The body has the ability to heal itself and since balancing hormones is an industry belief, I don’t want to brush off some women who can't take hormones, because it’s possible to get balanced by making lifestyle changes. And yet hormone replacement therapy is a fantastic option especially if your doctor understands and recommends a treatment plan based upon your story. Tune in to this episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast where I’m with hormone and metabolic specialist, Dr. John Carrozzella, and find out your HRT options, ways to achieve sexual rejuvenation and much more!

I was raised Catholic and during my teenage years, I would fast trying to prove my loyalty to God. As I went through medicine, I discovered that intermittent fasting can actually be helpful. In fact, we're seeing more research on it than ever before and it’s more prevalent in the media. We've had pretty good success in the Menopause Movement with women who tried it as some of them dropped around 30-35 pounds. If you’ve been thinking of trying intermittent fasting, this episode of The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast is for you.

And some have gone through it for 5 years, 10 years, and even 20 years. Even I remember my surgeon friends telling me that I just have to suffer through it. But getting your mojo back is possible. One of our OG MENO-Mates is Amanda who also didn’t want to put up with suffering in menopause. After she joined the program, it didn't matter how many symptoms she was suffering from. She went from battling her negative thoughts to changing her life for the better. If you’ve been looking for a reason to start living your best life in menopause, this episode is for you!

But there’s a way to thrive in uncertain times so you can get your life back. We talk about that in today’s The Best of The Menopause Movement Podcast where I’m with Intuitive Business Coach, Dana Grant whose passion is to use her gifts to guide other humans into their power.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS | A common symptom of menopause is loss of sex drive, and it not only affects our own self-esteem, but it can also affect our relationships. The thing is, some think we're not supposed to struggle with sex and that it's something that's just supposed to happen naturally. What’s worse is if it's not really working… something must be wrong. As a result, people tend to feel broken, inadequate or really afraid. But there is a way to share pleasure and connection with your partner and it doesn't need to be stressful. We’re here to let you know that nothing is broken.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |The effects of estrogen on the brain are so profound that when it drops, it can feel like all of it is suddenly gone instead of experiencing a slow decline. Then the brain has to readjust while we go through the changes. The sad thing for some however, is when they ask for help from a doctor they expect would have an answer… they would just be dismissed. But there's no reason why we should have to suffer through anything. There’s help available because your body matters. In today’s podcast, we’re going to talk about getting perimenopause help where I’m joined with founder and CEO of Mighty, Jeanne Chung. Tune in today and find that one small and easy thing that you can do to start choosing yourself.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |“I am” is a very powerful statement. It’s the statement of identity and it’s so much more than a story. I used to say I hate running, until I actually did it. I'm not gonna say it's always easy. On some days, it really sucks because the runs are difficult. But the body can do a lot more than we think. I talk more about that, the courage to try something new, and change as a process of trial and error in today’s episode with national board certified clinical health and wellness coach, Emily Marquis.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |When we get used to putting others first, we forget that we also need care. Our bodies are important too. And as our brain changes as we lose estrogen during menopause we go through this period of maybe not recognizing ourselves or feeling like an alien has beamed down and taking control. But as I always say, you can make menopause the best time of your life when you understand how you can create a life you love. Tune in today as I’m joined with nutrition and behavioral change expert, Jennifer Helene, to find out how to nourish your body and get the mental clarity you need.

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |Cancer is difficult to diagnose. We talk about self-breast exam, and how it’s a part of our monthly health care, but one thing that we don't notice necessarily is what's happening in our bellies. It can be because you may not have pain, and you may just think that there’s a slight bulge on the top of your belly. As women, sometimes we get to a point where we just numb out the pain that we experience in our bodies (example: menstrual pain). But what if we start to pay attention to our body and what we eat? Because what if the way we’ve been eating actually promotes disease like cancer? I talk more about that in today’s episode with registered dietician and low carb advocate, Martha Tettenborn. Tune in to this podcast to find strength, wisdom and more love for your body and life than ever before!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |Food plays a big role in our well-being. For instance, France is very connected to nature in some sense. People there enjoy their meals for an hour or two and it’s perfectly normal for them as it gives them an opportunity to connect with their loved ones while taking the time to eat their food. Meanwhile in America, it’s common to stuff food down our stomachs while being in a hurry to get other things done. It’s connected to this cycle of transaction, outcome, and result that comes from an overabundance of masculine energy. And it’s not supposed to be all that bad. I talk more about that and embracing the feminine energy (the slowing down and being in the moment) in today’s podcast with mentor to tens of thousands of women business owners, Fabienne Fredrickson. Tune in and stay to the end to find out how to get out of your own way in anything!

SUBSCRIBE: Omny | iTunes | Spotify | Stitcher | Overcast | Google Play | Youtube | Facebook | RSS |Healthy food creates health! A lot of the benefits of eating better has to do with pleasure and community. And the biggest question that I have is, "How can I help people understand regional cuisines and get them off medicine?" If you ever wondered what a CSA is or how to get more local produce into your diet, catch me today with president of a local not for profit farm called Glynwood and leading educator in the small farm movement here in New York, Kathleen Finlay.

And I don't think I'm alone (I still fight with myself to get my workouts done). When it comes to weight loss in menopause, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer and it's really important to tap into how you feel.

But some struggles feel heavier than others and they can shake you to your core. Physical pains are tough, and so are the mental wounds associated with them. If, like me, you've been through hard times, then you're probably familiar with feelings of hopelessness... And the feeling of resisting something new.

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. We also discuss the seven foundational attachment needs and their importance, including some practical tips to help when we’re triggered. Check out this episode today!

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.
