Solutions for Menopause Symptoms
"Well. Let's get started on today's topic. And i. i want to clear up a misconception. That many women still believe in the past. Many women were told that as we age and reach menopausal years we become deficient in the hormone estrogen. Now the truth is most women have too much estrogen. The excess estrogen. Let's just call it. Estrogen dominance and joanne is gonna talk more about that as well. That's right. I think a better way to explain. Estrogen dominance is if we compare the amount of the hormone progesterone that we have to the amount of estrogen that we have so. It's really we really want to be in balance and when we have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. That is where we get the term. Estrogen dominance right and when we taught her popular menopause survival seminar in house. Most women were very surprised to hear they did not need more estrogen from hormone replacement therapy or hr t which has a lot of what they had heard from Their from their doctors And to be honest these women actually needed to detox. The excess toxic estrogens for their health. Now some of you might be wondering what are the symptoms of access toxic estrogen. So i want to share some information before. I answer that question because i find that women. Even when they're younger you know in their thirties or forties they can also experience those symptoms of estrogen dominance or excess estrogen and so again too much estrogen. That's the of what we've always been told her. That the misconception that we need more men right. here's just a couple of the symptoms that can occur from this. Estrogen dominance and so many women will experience. They'll notice a decrease in sex drive decrease in libido irregular menstrual periods swelling of the breasts breast tenderness. Even fibro cystic breasts. Disease and uterine fibroids sign of too much estrogen right. You had mentioned earlier Headaches or migraines the ones that come before the menstrual cycle. That's right irritability. Depression problems sleeping insomnia and of course weight gain is another one favorite topic right exactly. Oh in joanne You and i were talking before the show about how we have both had clients in the past who had come in and they would talk about. Oh i used to get headaches and migraines but they would be coming to us postmenopausal and they say oh my headaches and migraines no longer bother me right. So that's just an example of someone who was getting headaches and migraines due to likely s excess estrogen right and then with you know with menopause. The hormones all shift right and then the headaches and migraines style and that's not the only caused migraines but it definitely plays in because yachts of women have come in and say i used to get migraines but now don't anymore so we know that's true and there are also more Other more serious symptoms that have been linked to excess estrogen or estrogen dominance and there are certainly links to estrogen dominance and breast cancer. There's also links to uterine cancer. There are links between excessive estrogen and autoimmune diseases especially comes to mind the hypo hypothyroid shimoda thyroiditis. There is a link between excess. Estrogen and excessive. Blood clotting that can lead to heart disease so those symptoms can be very serious.
Dr. Laura Erdman on Hormones & Women's Health
"Why don't you talk to us I about some of the common complaints and things that you see as women come to you either in their late thirties or early forties? And some of the things you often suggest to help them with it. So one of the main things what one of the things that I tried to to to model my practice around is I've been lucky to have a great pediatricians for my kids over the years and one of the things that I loved about them is that at their annual visit I sort of have gotten over the years. An anticipation of what's to come in their development. So when they were four and I was reminded not to be surprised about nightmares when they were six, make sure everybody knew how to swim and as I've sort of modeled my practice around that so Different Ages. I talked to women about what to expect what's coming, and so pretty much what I'd like to cover when women turn forty is. First of all period irregularities. So periods go wacky at the age of forty for many many many women sometimes they get closer together. Sometimes, they get heavier sometimes stay longer in it's really important to know what is normal versus what is just what is abnormal and could be a sign of something being wrong. So I tried to explain what's going on in the background because that helps a lot of women understand and a lot of. Women whom I see just want to know that everything is okay. They see some changes they don't necessarily they're not bothered by them. They don't necessarily want to treat them are going any medicine. They just want to know that everything is okay. But when you see a change in your period when you've always had a perfectly regular monthly period now all of a sudden is coming every three weeks that might see have normal where actually. Isn't. So it's important to remember that in the background are ovaries are getting better, and so they have a limited life span, which is around forty five to fifty years about the age of fifty or fifty one most famous start the transition into menopause Tomase, your ovaries just stop responding to the input from the rain they start making their Hormuz they stop ovulating but before that they get a little bit lazy and they don't really. Respond they don't really let the brain know too well that they're still doing their job. So your brain starts driving them a little bit harder. The brain doesn't age the brain would like our to keep working for forever. So that signal from the brain gets really really really strong but sometimes array say okay, fine I got it. I'll do my thing and so you get pretty much higher highs and lower lows of your normal hormones. And the cycle links between your periods gets a little bit shorter 'cause ovaries almost working a little bit too well in response to does signal from the brain. So that's why if you've had a period that has always been every twenty eight days and now all of a sudden, it is twenty four days that seems like as almost a week too early, but it's not that's totally fine. That's just the brain responding to that increased influence from the or the ovaries responding to the increased signal from the brain. But also since your hormones are hitting your ovarian hormone estrogen progesterone are hitting higher highs and lows. Things like PMS can become a little bit more exacerbated if you have a much higher progesterone level in that second half of your cycle, some people actually start to feel. The beginning of hot flashes right before their period as your estrogen is hitting alot than it ever has before the period can get a little bit heavier because the lining grows a little bit thicker if that estrogen is high in the beginning of the cycle higher than it has been. So all these things have a reason why they're happening, but they can be really really really bothersome. So these are like higher amplitude screens which were already doing but now they're actually kind of going wider in either direction and potentially at a higher frequency, which is what all of us want right now I'm scared. So. It's really really annoying. Now again, none of this is is is there's nothing wrong. Then this there's note illness there's disease there's nothing wrong but as just really really bothersome and it comes at a time in life where for many women their children are getting older there might be other life changes, just normal body aging into it's more difficult to lose weight the joint start aching a little bit more perhaps there's more responsibility in a job, and so it just hits all together at the very wrong time.

So it's a privilege to have you here on the podcast, Amy and really really thankful you could join us. Thanks for the kind introduction saw and honored to be here and I've really enjoyed learning from your other guests that have been on the podcast previously. Thank you. Yeah we appreciate. It, we definitely want to get diverse perspectives that that are out there in healthcare, and yours is quite unique and I'm really excited to dive into what you're doing with your team at premature before we do get into that though amy, I love to know what inspires your work in healthcare. We'll take saw really from the very beginning of always been fascinated with bioscience and healthcare at. That's been my passion interest pretty much solely and his corneas may sound I really love the fact. That your day to day worker Labor actually helps people. It's an incredible opportunity reward. But beyond that I'm really fascinated with intricacies and complexities of bioscience both on the level of a human body, as well as a healthcare ecosystem, and so if you think about the biological system design like the indecrompt and neurological electrical systems and how they influence each other, it's fascinating and then you take that macro level and you think about healthcare in the synergies and collisions of biology technology and behavioral. Economics. And Policy and psychology, and then salt the end of the day really just the individuality of human beings living out their lives You know they make some really intriguing intersections and I think it's fascinating to thrive at those intersections and a great place to be challenged intellectually emotionally, and then those intersections are really advancing the quadruple aim of healthcare care especially with application of Ai and our company. Prem- attempts doing just that were applying ai to biometric signals to understand what's happening in the body. While it, it's fascinating work and you know you've had spent some time in previous leadership positions with other companies in a you see the future there and so talked about really biometrics. So you know exactly how you guys are focusing on biometrics what biometrics is in particular to to what you guys are doing and how exactly you guys are adding value to the healthcare ecosystem. Let's do well. Thank you. Well, really we're using biometrics to empower women to make informed healthcare decisions and our. First application is infertility. So just to step back a little bit fertility starts to decline in women in their thirties and therefore many of us who are waiting to have kids were a little bit older. It makes conception and maintaining a pregnancy more challenging and the there's new data coming out from the World Health Organization that shows that one in four couples in developing countries have been affected by infertility Suda moved to your question about biometrics we use what's called advanced, Cronin Biological and circadian. Science to be able to pull up that biometrics. So it's all about when something is happening. So chronobiology biology's is a science, understanding the phases and operations of physiological and hormonal in systems of our bodies, and then applying time series analysis to that and being able to predict and understand a variety of medical conditions because each of these bodily systems they have rhythms to him and those rhythms our cycles are specific in each individual. So in other words, they have those rhythms they impact. Things like sleep and eating and women's monthly cycles. So when we do something critical like when we have intercourse to get pregnant or avoid pregnancy or even wind during the day, we might administer a drug therapy. So effective and has the fewest side effects. So think about that saw you a morning person or a night person I'm a morning person. Okay. So that's really controlled by your biological clock. So I've the night person, but I've had to kind of force myself in between work and kids. To be more of a morning, but that's not naturally what my body wants to be in on the weekends off fall back. So your morning, maybe I'm more like I didn't even think about that but maybe I'm more like that. Okay so What does your body do? Oh, on the weekends I'm up. I'm baby. Right, exactly. What's up? Yeah, that's interesting. Okay. Okay. That's fair Okay. So this is a bow. You know applying your your normal circadian biology to how things work out. So we do is we measure biological patterns that are controlled by the clocks, and so we do this with biometric of body temperature. So temperatures a proxy for physiological activities of our body. We've got a device or wearable Caprio in that measures core body temperature on a continual basis and core body temperatures really the gold standard, a circadian science, a very rich information signal, and as one of one of our advisers stated from a diagnostic perspective, it's like taking a blood draw every five minutes and the kind of information you can pull from that. So for our. First application, we're using that information to help women identify their fertile window for pregnancy, and then many women don't even have a window because of underlying issues. So we can provide this very high fidelity information through this continual biometric that can be used to diagnose and then track the effectiveness of treatments for those underlying conditions, and then we believe that we can apply these biometrics also to contraception to menopause to sleep disorders and eventually clinical areas such as the timing of delivery of drug therapies like chemotherapy for maximum effectiveness.

Preparing For Perimenopause: You Don't Have To Do It Alone
"Today I'm joined by NPR health correspondent and reproductive fairy godmother Chatterjee for some real talk about peri menopause. We're GONNA talk about how the physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional and mental health symptoms to which some people don't realize right exactly But before I say more I just WanNa say that I. Think. I. Love My new title Reproductive Fairy Godmother but anyway getting back to business yes. So sure would go yeah. The physical symptoms can come with a host of emotional mental health symptoms absolutely. So take for example, woman I spoke with Terry, hines now about a decade ago when Terry was in her mid forties how period started to change it increased in frequency it increased in intensity and increased endurance. Now she had some of the classic symptoms of paramount applause laycock flashes, chills started gaining weight which many women do during this time but the would notable changes to her mental health to they just did not have the energy to do the things that I wanted to do was such a fog over who I was what I wanted whereas going. What I was capable of accomplishing I just could not find my footing at the time. Terry. Lived alone in Philadelphia where she worked as an assistant principal at a school. And she really struggled to get out of bed and good work and do the things that she loved to do like taking her dogs for morning walk and she began to withdraw from her friends as well. Yeah. To speaking from experience these all sound like symptoms of depression. You know self-isolation foggy nece low energy exactly, and you know the thing is that Terry actually struggled with depression before and had sought treatment for it and she knew her symptoms she knew what triggers and that that was usually a big change in her personal professional life. But this time though she says, she was just so focused on all the physical changes going on in her body because of premenopausal that her emotional struggles at first, they didn't even register in a mind. Oh so on top of Peri, Menopause Terry was managing depression to exactly and that's not uncommon. Among individuals who have had previous diagnoses or of clinical depression anxiety and this data suggesting that in the leader stages of paramount applause as many as thirty percent of women experience depressive symptoms. I want to put this on the evening news like all persons who experienced presents should be made aware of this. So they're prepared. I mean that's a huge number. So do you have a sense of biologically why they're such a spike? Right. So it's a stage of life when your hormone levels are changing, it's all changing your periods of changing your hormonal Goals are all sort of you know going awry and that can trigger intense changes in mood and psychiatrists that I talk to for the story said that if you're experiencing depression or anxiety during paramount a pause. It's not the changes in your hormonal cycles are unusual. Lawrence say dramatically different from somebody else's but it's more likely that you bring is more sensitive to these changes. So if you've experienced depression before you're more sensitive experiencing it when going through peri menopause exactly now, the other reason is that paramedic plus isn't just a biological change, right? It's also a huge life transition. Because they're all these changes in your body Sharon, it's a big part of aging which coming to terms with your metabolism might be slowing down. You might be mostly processing these things as well, and any big life transitions can affect people's emotional wellbeing
How Beauty Insider Tina Hedges Created LOLI, an Environmentally Sound Brand
"Career has taken her. From the perfume counter at macy's inside a conic brands like Christian Dior Estee Lauder Al. but after almost two decades beauty shetty personal crisis that inspired her to start lally beauty the I zero waste organic food grade approach beauty we talk about her a Pitney the one thing she asks every investor she meets with and why she is so committed to getting this, right. Teen almost two decades in the beauty industry and then you had both a health scare and day crisis of conscience. What happened I had spent about almost about to get decades or so traveling the world in pretty high powered marketing roles and innovation roles for big companies in the industry pretty much helping, decide and create all the products in women's beauty cabinets and. started. Simultaneously, I had this weird across section of I started having all these other immune issues and systemic allergies. A No physician could sort of pinpoint what was really triggering it as well as went through early menopause. And I was in my mid thirties and no underlying health conditions for that and I started to think about. All of the products have been applying to my body from head to toe for almost two decades and I started thinking about all those buildup of toxins and chemicals, and I realized that I had been polluting my own body and simultaneously. I had this consciousness of wow. Not only have I been pushing into the world products filled with all these chemicals and nasty since and and carcinogens endocrine disrupters all of this you know really scary stuff but on top of that were blending all of that in eighty to ninety five percent water because most of your skin hair and body products are literally water you're paying for water. And then wrapping all that in single use plastic and when the world is running out of water, it's one of our most precious resources when the boy to be more plastic in the ocean than fish by twenty, twenty five. None of this makes any sense to me or None of that made any sense to me a when I had this convergence of the crisis of health and crisis consciousness. Once you had that a home moment what was the first thing you did to sort of take that idea and start? Making it an actual reality. So I had already left the corporate world and I had gone into the start world. I launched a very successful. vegan sulfate free hair brand. Actually I was the first to use reality TV show on Bravo a show called blow out about a hairstylist in La and his hair salon. But because of us sort of uniquely understood, it was basically an hour long infomercial. We turned the industry on dime because prior to that I mean it was super early days of reality to be. We're talking like two, thousand, four it was America's biggest loser where for the straight guy blow out and the apprentice those were the reality shows that were on at that time and I realized wait a second. This is a show about a hairstylist. Want we show him developing his own brand? and. Don't have done that. So we were the first do that. And the purpose of going back to that stories I know how difficult it is. To start a business especially as a minority Hispanic female founder over the age of thirty. So I was really scared to start this and I. Just. Kept finding excuses left a brighter I'm going to consult or help this person with their brand, and it finally got the place at I was just sitting there and I realized. What do I have to lose? What's the worst thing that could happen? So I- self-financed and out of my upper side small studio apartment I launched a test of Lawley and so that was the beginning. Lawley is the world's first zero waste organic food grade approach to beauty. I want break each part of that down what does it mean to be Zero Waste We go to farms and fairtrade cops around the world, and we find parts of organic food that are being wasted or being thrown away in the process. So for example, our Plum Elixir, we work with a organic farm four generation owned in France that grows a very rare plummets called the end tape them and sa- tiniest considered like the fog or caviar of plums it's it's quite unique. It's extremely potent in antioxidants and vitamins and minerals, and when they make prune juice or pitted prunes, they were throwing away the colonel. And the Patriarch the father of this owner of the farm. About ten years ago said wait. We, press avocado oil from the pit of an avocado. We press all sorts of oils from pits Robin Doyle, why can't we press an oil and organic food grade oil from the pit of the plum? And he literally invented it like they're no one had ever had plum oil, and then he worked with the French bent to get it organic certified and recognized as a food ingredient, and then we started working with them and realized how powerful it was for skin hair
You've been diagnosed, Now What? with Marnie Clark - burst 5
"So do you find women that come to you, you know are so in fear initially that long, you know, you kind of have to talk about the ledge and and and remind them and this is one of our big messages as you don't have to fear cancer, you know cancer is just the symptom. It's not the cause exactly. Yes. Yeah, I deal with that Fear Factor pretty frequently. How do you how do you how do you talk them off the ledge when they first thing I do is to tell them this is some viable. It's absolutely survivable. This is not a death sentence. Yeah, and and less spoiled that fear down, you know into something wrong. More approachable and just get them to realize that okay, we're all here for a finite period of time. We're not it's not like no one's going to die. We all will be an eventual thing. But the important thing is to realize that you while you're here. You need to be living your life as fully and completely as you can and enjoying it and you know, gosh that's so important, isn't it? Absolutely now you you know, you mentioned initially before your diagnosis that there was a lot of stress in your life. And you know, one of our Essentials is essential number for and healing the emotional wounds and making sure that you know, you're managing your stress because Well tell us what what does stress due to the body and your immune system? Oh, yeah, it undermines the immune system to a huge degree. I mean either one of those epigenetic factors, isn't it? Really? I mean, it's it's huge and it's so important to deal with it because I mean, like I said earlier, I I I work with people all the time who are doing just absolutely perfect with their diet. They're supplements everything exercise doing all the right things but during this toxic relationship or during this horrible job that they hate. Well, I'll deal with that later. No dear really we need to deal with it now because this is important factor in cancers a wake-up call, isn't it? I mean It's it's the biggest wake-up call you'll ever get and to deal with every aspect. You can't leave any stone unturned really long and it's you know, it's about transformation and change right? Because if you keep the same lifestyle that you had precancer, you know, nothing's going to change and and I've see that so much of time, you know, women are doing everything right as far as the supplements but they're you know, they're just not progressing until they deal with the emotional aspect. And then also there's a shuttle aspect which is a huge factor that a lot of people think it's not that important. But you know, we definitely need to look at you know, what's in your mauth oral microbiome on the toxicity of the amount goes the root canals and all of those things. Yeah, I once not too long ago had a conversation with the lady who was a thermal imaging person dead. But I forget now what her exact title was but she worked with thermal imaging and she had some really interesting photos of women who had root canals and you could see how the root canals were affecting those meridians and went right through the breasts. Yeah, seeing is believing Now using fascinating fascinating. I saw that a lot as well. Now, let's talk a little bit about some of the things that you recommend for the women that you coach as far as long. I mean, we you know, as far as nutrition and then as far as the specific supplements or herbs or Chinese medicine, you know things that will really took a good cancer cells. So let's first of all let's talk about nutrition. What are the basic things that you recommend? I recommend the people do daily juicing or smoothies one or the other whichever they prefer or switch off because there's so many things that you can get from that way. It's better than taking a multi-vitamin because you're getting the nutrition at the very basic level and right into the body cells in our bodies love that. Yeah, and there are so many things that you can do like even just even just juicing a stalk of broccoli the things that you'll get out of that. Hi slow. Yeah powerful. So yeah, carrots and beets and all of the greens spinach all those things makes such a huge difference and they taste good too. I mean, it's super simple just takes minutes and you provided yourself with an amazing amount of nutrition organic eggs go ahead and has to be organic. That's that's a whole other subject, isn't it? But yeah, and so and beyond that I just I don't say to people, you know, you need to go off me you need Volkswagen. I'm not I'm not that strict. I just believe that make it as clean as possible, which what you enjoy eat from the rainbow. I hear people say that all the time but it's so true the brighter color than it is the better it is for you. So yeah loads of loads of vegetables loads of fruit. And if you're going to eat meat make sure it's as clean as it can be in organic or free-range just really good stuff. Yeah. Now do you follow the blood type diet? I don't so much anymore. I was reading the books. Mostly someone handed it to me and said, you know, you need to know about this page, right? I do believe that it works for some people. Yeah. Yeah. I did it many years ago. I'm an old blood type. So it made a lot of sense to me cuz I was vegetarian for thirty years and I just after a while it just wasn't working for me, especially as I got into menopause and yeah, okay. And then what about what about targeting cancer cells? How do you how do you deal with that in boosting the immune system? Okay. So I saw it sort of depends on where a person is in their Journey, but for for someone who is considered cancer-free just looking looking forward to home. Staying well and no recurrences. I I strongly recommend people be taking something to work with the hormone levels. Sometimes it's a damn sometimes it's the calcium gluconate depending on you know, there's particular situation. I do like Dem a lot but but for boosting the immune system, I haven't found anything that works better than those medicinal mushrooms the mushroom last. Oh my goodness turkey tail and China and Russia and maitake. They're incredible. Absolutely incredible. I followed Paul stamets four years the the mushroom guy, you know the most mushroom Guru, he knows about mushrooms and gosh the things that are coming out from the research studies just fabulous. I don't think he owns his own mother healed herself with a combination of herceptin and turkey tail mushrooms. So just got off. So human is another thing that I wouldn't be without curcumin is amazing. So many things not just for not just for cancer, but for me, you know reducing inflammation in the body and targeting cancer cells and yeah, really incredible stuff. Let's see. What else do I like em. I do recommend co Q ten for people who are going through radiation and chemotherapy. I think that's a really important one for them to have absolutely. Good, and I've got a whole long list of things. But from Main ones are the you know, dealing with the hormone aspect and you know off the medicinal mushrooms, I think are really super I've heard a lot. I've been I mean dealing a lot with people who are getting mistletoe therapy to 4 a.m. Address of cancers. Is there someplace on the US where people can get mistletoe therapy pretty easily. If you can get a doctor's prescription you can get there's a couple of pharmacies. I know I did it during my second healing journey and it's really simple. It's just the you know Sub-Q injection off and when there is some. Some clinics that I believe offer it i v as well, so yeah, it was great. So Marnie if there were parting words of birth Is dumb for women who are on the healing Journey? What would you what would you tell them? I I I really think that if they can align themselves, you know with their inner wisdom their inner healer and just tap into that. We know our bodies better than anybody else and if you are feeling like a therapy just isn't going to be for you then don't do it. Choose the ones that make sense to you do your research? Dive
The Midwifery Model of Care with Sarah Stetina, CNM
"I would love to dive into. The training and education. So I know that there's different kinds of midwives but in order to practice in Illinois, you have to be CNN correct yes. Currently certified nurse Midwives at the only legal provider in Illinois but there's more than just two midwife types and that's kind of what makes midwifery kind of confusing or there's a lot of misconceptions about midwifery because there's so many different entries. So the first obviously as nurse Midwifery, that's what I am, and it made the most sense for me to choose nurse Midwifery because like I said I didn't learn about midwifery until was already in nursing school. So it made sense to go on and get my master's degree and specialize in midwifery, and so that row is a master's degree. It can also be a doctorate degree and it's similar to a nurse Practitioner which also masters program but you you have the same education to a certain point and then they branch off until your specialty. So you could be a needle natal nurse practitioner. You could be acute care nurse, practitioner, family nurse Practitioner. Nurse unnecess- or a nurse midwife. All of those things are kind of in the same level. Just our specialty that that varies. And so that was my education. was going to finish my masters degree doing clinicals and didactic and. Doing births and all being clinic and office visits and learning all the skills, and then you have to sit for a national. Certifying exam. And Pass that to become certified and then you have to apply for licensure in your state. So there are other routes there's also certified midwives which are Also. Take US certifying national exam. And may go through an accredited program, but they're not nurses I and it's not a masters of nursing degree at summit where free degree that isn't legal in every state. There's certain states that allow certified midwives and then the third is the certified professional midwife, which is also certified by a national exam and there are midwifery programs for CPM's or certified professional midwives. But they're not recognized every state. I, think it's up to like thirty two states now that recognized CPM's most of them work. In out of hospital setting wall nurse midwives typically work in hospital settings, but it can vary depending on the state. and certified professional midwives spent a lot of time in an apprenticeship without of hospital midway experienced midwives learning that in addition to their. Schooling. So very comparable it's just the model pathway that you want to enter midwifery. And then there's traditional midwives which maybe don't take a certifying exam don't. Have a license and have learned midwifery from being passed down through generations, and that's how midwife midwifery kind of started in the United States. And there's a lot of wisdom to be gained from traditional midwives but. The country doesn't usually recognize them as. Legal providers. Yeah do would you say that there is a lot of misconceptions around education as a midwife Oh yeah. I think a lot of people think you don't know what you're doing. Oh Yeah. I, think a lot of people don't realize they compare us with Dulas. People ask me all the time oh you deliver babies no. When I tell them I'm like, oh so like a Dula and I'm like well, no. And they're you know it's so interesting. Once, I learned everything about midway free. You just assume that everyone else is going to figure it out to which obviously is not the keys I was in nursing school didn't know what Wise Ray but that campaign in the nineteen hundreds that kind of. Discredited midwives which was led by the. Physicians and Medical Association to get people to him birth in a hospital. The kind of told the story that midwives were dangerous and an educated and not safe, and that is a really successful campaign because it is still prevalent in in the way that people think about midwives today and so I'd say whether you're CPM Siham, 'em or a CNN. Or choosing those providers most of them are very very educated and have a lot of knowledge and our experts at normal physiological birth. and. Midwives nurse midwives. In particular can we can prescribe we can order imaging, we can do lab work, we can manage normal guy any staff so whether that's a PAP smear. Cycles birth control throughout the life span. And I don't think people realize that we don't just do pregnancy and birth you can come see me for anything that you'd go see an ob for for the most part, and if it's out of my scope, I'm going to refer you appropriately in in there are levels of of scope of practice but. Yet for most. People you can see a midwife for pretty much everything related to reproductive health, right which leads us to another misconception. Because honestly I didn't really know that before. My introduction midwives was my sister when she was pregnant with her oldest who's twelve now. She didn't plan on using a midwife. She had some crazy thing happen. With her insurance, dropped her because her doctor mixed up her medical records and then they went take her and she got pregnant. No insurance started looking at alternative methods and found this midwife. And ended up doing an at home birth in that was my first. Experience seeing a birth and just fell in love with that and she ended up having all four of her kids at home. And I also dislike fell in love with her midwife she's she was doctrine Venezuela she studied birth the Amazon she came to the states started this practice and very wise. Gosh, she's so amazing and And so it's cool because then became a delay gotta work with her with some other berths to. But before that. Also, I. Yeah. You just you picture a midwife it's a home birth. It's You know. And that's all they do is birthing right and obviously now that I know it's like. I'm going to. Be Used mid wife's for the rest of my life. I'm like in menopause you know what I mean. I can still go to them not just when I'm having a baby you can have that relationship based care that really holistic approach in every aspect of your healthcare pretty much, and we're trained as a nurse midwives trained in primary care as well. So basic primary care, your annual exams, even just a asthma management simple things we are very capable and entering. To to manage as well and for for the the myth that midwives only do home birth that's really prevalent. I. Tell people a midwife and they immediately assume that I'm delivering babies at home which there's nothing wrong with that obviously uses your head a wonderful home breath but you can buy midwives in literally every setting whether it's home birth centers, hospitals clinics. Federally, Qualified Health Centers Academia doing research. You know we're we're everywhere that a physician might be

My heart just leapt a little. So we must be honest with ourselves. And take a look at how we are moving through our days. These conversations that we're having around being aware. That were quote wasting time, and then beating ourselves up silently of course about. Wasting time? And then we morph that idea into. How then do we become more productive sewer optimizing our time? We're scheduling our time and then. I hear all the time that. Statement. That I'm crazy. Busy I say it to when I say I'm crazy busy. It means that I'm crazy. Busy from ten am to five PM.

This compulsive ity we have around being productive and doing more things. As a little wonky when you think about. The technology that we have is supposed to save us time. Why do we feel like we need to fill it with other things? I want a slow nope. I don't even want to slow. The role. I would like us to be aware that. This does not bring internal happiness.

That's eight hours or less for me, then we become more forgetful. Are you a little grumpy moody? Getting angry over littlest things? That's also a sign of overindulging in too much productivity. Yeah! I just said that. You're not getting enough sleep. You're not engaging with people and having fun. You're doing for the sake of doing. Are you waking up most days?

Incontinence Problems at Any Age
"Welcomed addition of nutrition today's show is brought to you by a nutritional weight and wellness. My Name Is Kara Harper and I'm a licensed nutritious I also have a masters degree in holistic health, and I'm very excited to be here this morning with my co-host Melanie Beasley Melanie registered and licensed Dietitian. She's been practicing nutrition for three decades. I think in a variety of settings bono. Okay sorry. You would never know by looking at you mail, but. Both Mellon I. We've personally had our share of health challenges over the years. Some of you maybe have even heard some of our personal stories. If you've tuned in for many years, and if you also have health challenges, we understand we know what you're going through. We also understand the importance of eating real food to conquer those health challenges, so we want to welcome you and welcome all of our listeners to today's show and the topic of our show today is incontinence problems at any age, and isn't that interesting because he always thinking continents is just you know someone's getting older, but it really kinda fact. Yeah from bed-wetting that wedding from the time you're little you know up until end of life it can affect. People ran. It affects quality of life so I'm really excited that we're talking about this and putting things out on the table for people to think about good morning. Everyone, I bet some of you are thinking. What is my diet and nutrition have to do with incontinence or lack of bladder control? Control well, many of our clients have said to us I thought my problem was structural problem and only doctor could help me certainly not a Dietitian nutritionist I know by UCAR, but they fill out a lengthy wellness form to come in for us. Look at in. That's of the questions on there, so some of you may also be thinking the exact same thing, so it may be surprising to know that. A number of our clients ask us for help with incontinence, which is defined as involuntary loss of urine. But car you and I were talking about. It's more than just you know. Expand a little bit on what you were saying that you had listened to that matter. I was just listening to a doctor. She was a urologist and she was just discussing kind of the criteria for diagnosing incontinence. And you know it's the involuntary loss, but it's also the frequency that urgency you know I have to get to the. The bathroom right away. I can't wait also night. You know nighttime frequency is one of the diagnosis as well you know if people are getting up two or more times per eight, that would fall under incontinence as well. Yes, and it affects it affects sleep which we've talked about before. Definitely yeah, and because continents is such a very personal topic, it can also be rather embarrassing to a significant number of people. Many, people feel uncomfortable talking about it even to their doctor. And when we bring it up I, think they they're almost relieved to have someone to discuss that issue with For that reason, we wanna get into the topic. Get it up and out in the open as a dietician WHO's helped numerous people overcoming continents I, believe your food choices can work magic on the symptoms of incontinence, coronary artery and talk about the foods that are certainly considered bladder irritants. We will also talk about foods that helped strengthen and maintain certain key muscles that are necessary for bladder control. And incontinence it's a really common problem like we already mentioned for both men and for women, and in fact, twenty five million adults in our country suffer from incontinence, seventy five to eighty percent are women. That's probably not a surprise in reality in a one in four women over the age of eighteen will experience episodes of leaking urine, and and this is the statistic that Kinda got me. Is that half of women over sixty struggle with this, but again it can happen to under sixty as well absolutely. And Stress Urinary incontinence that that's just kind of a data separate diagnosis, but kind of a subcategory that usually shows up. You know after childbirth, and after menopause for women, and then some prostate cancer treatment can also trigger incontinence for men, yes, and getting men to talk about it in clinic. I find too, that they're. They're happy to bring it up, but you have to bring it up I because people just assume well, this is just who I am. I'm getting older. This is my portion. That I have to deal with now. Not knowing that could, there can be some help well. Have you noticed the number of TV ads for disposable incontinent products? Now? Yes, I have some people. Call them adult diapers. I don't like that I. Think it's In two thousand eighteen five billion dollars were spent on the purchase of incontinence products. The cost of these incontinence supplies can easily beat two hundred to three hundred per month. The National Association for Continents Reports that. The psychological cost of urinary incontinence can be depression. Isolation decreased self esteem and work related difficulties. Yeah I mean even the sleep piece to think about how lack of sleep. If you're getting up several times at night, you don't get that quality or length of sleep. That can affect mood that can affect work performance immune system, so it's you know it's a big issue. And why isn't continent so prevalent? Well one reason it could be from following a low fat, low calorie style of eating in addition to not eating enough protein, and often those will go together. And a lot of. We say women because I think a lot of women are. Wanting to lose weight and. They're working. They're trying to do this by going fat, free low calorie, and that automatically sort of cuts out a lot of protein in the Diet because if they're trying to avoid fat, you're. You're not getting a lot of protein so. Following a low fat, low protein diet has left some people with weak pelvic floor, muscles and thin fragile tissues in the urethra, so it's a lack of beneficial healthy fats, and then short changing the amount of protein that you're getting that could really have a direct influence on incontinence, and I always tell clients how important it is to eat. Sufficient amounts of beneficial healing fats I mean feel like we're always kind of trying to promote the healthy fats right now we are. We're trying to overcome decades of it is. It's fear fat forty to fifty
Changing Bodies and Eating Disorders in ages 50+
"To another episode of nutrition. Matters podcast. My name is page and I'm your host and I'm really excited to bring you this conversation about menopause with Erica Leeann. This is a topic that comes up. Really regularly with my clients in session and I just think it's one of those things that we don't talk about enough, and they're just not enough conversations or resources out there or even just kind of willingness to discuss this so I thought that I would take a shot at not definitely not the I obviously. I wanted to be. Part of the solution a little bit here and talk about what should one expect going through menopause? What is it like? Why do these changes occur in the body What should we expect? How do we navigate it? How do we trust our bodies? How do we continue to care for ourselves? Well as our bodies, age and shift and Morph so without being so I do want to give a little content warning Erica, as she describes her her history and kind of what brought her to this work. She describes some details of. putting children on diets and putting people on diets and I know that there are some sensitive. Ears who just might not really be in a place to want to. Really hear about some of those details. The reason that I left it in though I just want to explain is I'm always aware that that this episode might be someone's very first experience or exposure with taking a non diet approach to nutrition, and so I wanted to leave the things in that Eric describes because I want to hopefully help paint the picture for anyone who's new to this work to understand. I. Ask her in what is harmful about that. And why did you decide that that wasn't the direction you wanted to go with your career? And it's all an effort to just pete the picture and really describe things more clearly as to why this paradigm can be a really powerful way to approach our bodies, not only with children, or you know in the adult years, but also going through menopause, so just want to let you know you can skip through the first. You know ten fifteen minutes if you'd like to just get right into the menopause stuff. And then the other thing I wanted to discuss really quickly. Here is a someone flagged A. Concept, I put forward in episode one, seventy, four, where active where I interviewed Katie Lynch, talking about body image in postpartum. And I think I said something along the lines of. A lot of our struggles with food kinda come from a place of wanting control, and then the food really winds up controlling us and I had someone point out that. Maybe that's not the best way to describe it and. I did want to just kind of add a little bit of of nuance here that. Control might not resonate for you and. It doesn't have to, and it doesn't necessarily mean it's even really the most helpful way to think about with food. She makes the point that really more of what it's about. It's about safety so where where you live in a world that. Tells you over and over again. That living in this size body is is wrong and It can be really normal to develop a sense of feeling unsafe in your actual body, or if it's a matter of. Skin color or a matter of sexuality or a matter of gender identity, these types of things when you live in a world where you feel like you're not safe in your body. Food can become a way to try to make yourself feel more safe and I think that that was a really important point that I wanted to mention here. I also wanted to see that you know if the idea or concept of controlling things. Things resonates for you. Maybe it's important. Maybe it could be useful to kind of look at this concept of safety, and to just do some introspection there, so you to the listener who brought to my attention and
Hormones in Lockdown
"Delight to have talked to Elaine the back on the side now elaine hard. nicey cranky. Is Nice to have you hit, so you all just you into context? Even though I'm sure many listeners will remember you fondly from a previous episode, you are a doctor, a functional medicine and a bio identical Komen specialists as an ex NHL doctor. You are joining me because we all currently at the time of according. To and a bit months into lock down here in the UK. That's why it is yeah. It's the day the MO- moving into an online.

Amongst many friends, a feeling of Real Block and lots of people feeling out of sorts I'm sorry that there isn't a word to describe it. I'm just going to get that freshen hopefully. Appropriate definitely feeling out of sorts, and and you would imagine it would be to be expected, but then I started to wonder about hormones. Which is why I called you. I wondered whether. The sudden change in lifestyle of having to go into lockdown. Could actually be impacting our hormones and therefore affecting our mood affecting how we feel. and. Could it be? It certainly cake. Yeah, I! MEAN WE'RE! We're in a really stressful period. That sort of. Mass external stress that's going on as well as sort of. The stresses that are. End. The toke before by whatever's going on in the word is A. Big External stress is going on and on the other people are having a big change in their lifestyle or whom?

Women In Prison
"Today chatting to classrooms. He's the managing editor of the magazine, a new magazine that publishes poetry and articles by women in prison today. We're going to be chatting to her. About what life is like for women in Britain's prisons. How them into health is affected by being in prisons, and what life is like at the moment during the covert epidemic. So my interest is like mice, people, you know they're all mental health. Issues in my family have an aunt. WHO's diagnosed bipolar, so we sort of grew up with that. And then. I went to school with Ended up just in a lot of trouble with the criminal justice system and when she was released from. Last time she asked. If I would help and get involved with the which when I look at it I was just delighted to. Because it's really important, it's it's not just for women in prison for women who've got any contact with the criminal justice system, so they could be women on in the community all they could be The partners of men they could be NGOs or other people involved in the criminal justice system went lawyers. Judges actually subscribed to twos. Quite it's quite a broad abroad with limited reach. This is kind of broad question, but what is it is particularly about women how to how women specifically affected by being in the prison system coming out of the issues that they face specifically so I think when you look at. The. Number of women who all incarcerated who we send to present. You have mental health issues vomited vaguely report, but he are half ago and Init- initial justice admits that over eighty percent of women have mental health issues on those mental health issues not treated in women's Prisons Stats men's prisons. They're much lower and then women things. I and depression is compounded, because only one percent of children actually stay in the family home. If mother is sent to prison, I mean that's an alarming statistic, and we need to think about being Zion, if not knowing what's happening to your child in your home and everything. In a while you're in prison where it's remind is usually you know nine times out of ten, a mother, or assist O or upon who can pick up the pieces in the Gulf to the children, but for women very often. They don't have those networks especially when it comes to child care. And women have also leads upon leads of trauma an emotional abuse. Again enormous report that was commissioned by Theresa May. He says that over fifty percent of women. have been the victims of abuse. Emotional or sexual or domestic abuse? In their lives, and of course, imprisoning them white disc, compacting that trauma and adding Les- Upon it, and what about the mental? They received. We'll maybe don't receive. When are actually in prison will? What's really frightening? Is that judges put women in prison thinking that they will get mental health support because you know, there are these massive I mean really enormous mental health contracts over six hundred million pounds. A year is spent on health and mental health. They called the justice health contracts, so these are given to provide his including. National Health Service, foundation trust and private providers like. A and Really. Women just cannot access them they. For example at Drake Hotel which is the prison? In the Midlands is meant to be a fulltime psychologists in the time psychiatrist, I'm case paid to provide that service, but actually that has not been a full time.

Eradicating Abuse Of Women in Yoga with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli
"Hello and welcome back to this episode of the sacred. We import podcast a radically in the abuse of women in Yoga why? Madden's Mottley is back here to talk about her fantastic campaign to meet Yoga's safe place for women with the Yoni shocked he movement. I'M GONNA. Let this one speak for itself. ooh is fantastic. Again is packed with information and all the links we mentioned are in the show notes. If you do want to support this, you do get what a get involved in any way, then you. Can there lots of different ways really fundamentally. This is to make yoga a safe place and to restore as a healing tool. So he goes here is. Mortally welcome back to the PUCK customer. Thank you for inviting me might melanie. Thank you at will honor an oppression to pin here with. So Yoni shock to the movement. Where did it come from Anwar is? This is a great question. Okay, so Yoni Shaquoti literally it means source power, or you could translate it as as count power. It's the power of the life. Force is the name of the I wrote eight years ago and I finished writing at years ago. My intention without book was to liberate the practices of Yoga for women for us to have as freedom practices. You know to to liberate us to support us in our. In our unfolding as within feminine cycles, basically to get a hold of yogurt and. Shake up and let women get access to what we needed. And so that's what I thought would happen when I wrote the book put out, but what's happened is that there were revelations of abuse of women within yoga. Many people are totally unaware of this I. Did know about it when the book was released on Me Admire, editor actually decided I'd written a whole piece and it was censored. We cut it out and it was about some of the beginning revelations of these abuses. Now this was pre me to. It was pre me, too, so that came out, and I wanted to WHO Yoga to change and be wore women friendly woman centric. You know and. It sort of helped, but not enough, and what's happened recently is more and more revelations of come abuses, financial, sexual physical everything you can think of in almost every single yoga school law of Yoga. Yoga training organizations so basically enough is enough Yoni shot team movement. Arose as a way to. Just put a stop to this said that the what we're trying to do is to eradicate yoga. Eradicate Yoga. Sorry, Iraq quite the abuse of women in Yoga, which is an abusive yogurts, well, I think is a it's a freedom tool, so we radical the abuse of women in Yoga, and to reclaim yoga as a tool for. Planetary Healing for justice. I'm for freedom. So, it's a, it's A. It's a co- for Justice in healing. A of women have read. The book stepped up pretty much. Anyone who's ever been a yoga class up. Listen up on entre Israel is raising awareness. Campaign is a movement in the sense that. I'm an educator can really do is is educate so I'm I'm raising propagating a public awareness and there's a crowd funding campaign to raise money. To. Fund public, awareness and education campaign that could run for. For for years. Until everybody knows and will know then then everybody's Saif. I just felt like my daughter isn't going to be safe in those places. Nobody's daughter safe in those places. We all need to know what's going on. And so we can actually reclaim this amazing. Positive Force in the world. From the clutches of the Patriarchy you. Know How it is. That's the plan and when you talk about like the clutches of the Patriarchy I think we all know the obvious sorts of abuse that are out there. Some women are getting raped some being molested abused in different ways, and they said the more obvious ones that women are able to step up to say. Hey, this is happened. It's not a K.. I I need some hail in an. For everyone to band together and support what am interested in talking to you about as well is the subtle ways that the disempowerment of women We moved into practices so that it becomes almost like a grooming process and prep for intrinsic abuse that then unfortunately can, and sometimes does gets passed on from women to other women. Absolutely you have nailed it. I could say that I mean within some organizations as trafficking, Ripe Sexual Assault. It's it's criminal Sex Crimes on. People convicted for them, but what you're describing is what enables abuse to happen how how that happen in a in an organization or a teaching dynamic that supposed to be about liberation. The way it happens is insidious. What can happen is that you have a whole culture? What's it's it's is could by stabbed rhythm. People just stand by a normalized this stuff now. Some people are beneficiaries of this. They benefit from it because they've got proximity to power, so the that procuring the girls for the Gurus on this does happen. They traffic in the mall, everybody Europe and all over the world. So that can happen, so there's that, but this bystander ism is actually the kind of culture that really. Enables this abuse. What happens is even in a situation like when you step into A. A class at run by particular traditional. What have you they line? You'll up like soldiers. You know why Islam Anyway, but they line you all up like sodas and person at the front is telling you what to do. Even if you feel your body, that day is cooling for something different. We've got sense that we go. Go along. You do what you're told. They know best. Is this sense we? Devolve like abdicate our power to the people outside of us because they're the experts, and they know best Annella loin you and correct you. An offer knows alignments and corrections and basic instructions given in this extraordinarily Imbalance kind of way there is no power or Given to the student, none whatsoever you know best, do as you're told. The Guru has the grace to come and correct you. Sometimes, it's very it. Sexual assault happens in clauses. That's what happened in the string of. Over decades I'm people just stood by and let go on, so it was actually normalized a not protest. What that means is that you can be in an environment where really quite abusive things are happening the time the sometimes people are bullied I don't if you've been in Nevada, you know you take the Piss out the I knew all the question. Anybody who says well. This doesn't feel good for me. Because, you're not good enough, or this doesn't feel right to me. Will you don't know any better? Rather than actually giving people power, and saying no listening to your intuitive voice, which is course what we're trying to do? In the the women's empowerment work, you listen to the the the rhythms of your psycho. Listen to how it feels in your body in actually what happens in Yoga is very. Very often the opposite of that, so what you get is a culture where it's perfectly normal for for for a woman, especially a woman Amina because I'm talking about all you know natural rhythmic cycles of our menstruation or of all menopause experiences, and they're kind of overridden. They're all a bit inconvenient in a classroom member. Talking with you about this before you go a pair of Preston and Of Women's buttocks. Just gets in the way so so basically it's kind of inconvenient female, but like it's a privileged for you to learn its practices for Mason that basic idea, which isn't helpful.
Why Food Is More Powerful Medicine Than Drugs with Maggie Ward
"Tell us a little bit about this first patient that you've had that you wanted to share a little bit about what their struggle with a rate. You know these this case I picked it because it's fairly common to what we see. I mean we see a little bit of everything especially the ultra wellness center but it gets a kind of common theme especially for people that come to see me just burned nutritional nutritionist. So this woman she says sixty four year old woman who I've been working with for a while Dealing with a weight gain. That was one of her main concerns. I mean mild about twenty pounds overweight and it came on around menopause for her ambitious. Had a very long history of reflects had been onto our birthright Harper Harper now called reflects the whole industry of drugs and it's like the third most commonly prescribed class of drugs out there with the acid blocking drugs. Little Per Bay right and many you can get right now over the counter to some people are taking it. You know even without a doctor's prescription and You know sometimes needed for short term but unfortunately a lot of people have been these medications a long time and I think you know we see the the negative impact that so much at our center so she in a shed a long history of the reflex in also dealing with lower energy She's been on many diets which we hear so often people come to us trying many many different things in the common theme here as the way beating. This wasn't sustainable. And obviously we use the word. Diet you know just to kind of have that language. But I really don't like that word because I think we tend to think of food is lacking white. We're either on a diet off diet and initially might be asking people to walk a kind of a finer line with the food choices to get them dealing better winter but ultimately eating whole foods. Kind balancing those macronutrients eating every maybe four hours once you. You're eating during the day. I mean those are things that you Kinda WanNa make your lifestyle and that's ultimately what we really talked about is. How do you make the sustainable reflects cases so common? You know the number one reason that people go to the doctor in America is for digestive problems and reflexes. Right up there among them. So what are the causes that you see Maggie for Harper and reflex which is so common in our patient population in the country? I think it's multiple things. I mean from a dietary standpoint when we know a lot of the foods that can cause indigestion. Reflux dairy is a gluten so big one so we do a lot focusing on taking out those foods at might be more more irritant to the guide in front like allergies true allergies may be sensitivities were sensitivities. Exactly I mean. People do definitely have true allergies by at what we see is just different ways your immune system can react even intolerances where you just don't digest the food while dairies. A good example that were lactose eventually gives everyone issue and it can cause things that reflects in voting gas. So that stuff's subway gonNA mean obsolete working with providers doing more testing around breath testing and stool tests and get a sense of disposes. It's a very common thing that we see. What's this bio suit me as win your bacteria's at a balance in your body and also can often be in the wrong plates in your usual right right in your gut. Many people what we see they had small Hessel. Bow Overgrowth what we call the CBO bacteria and even used to move further up into the Upper Gi and doubling caused a lot of distress. They're normally normally. There's a lot of bacteria in your lower intestine. Your but not so much in your small intestine you've got twenty. Two feet of small intestine starts at the end of your stomach. In when the bacteria migrate up for different reasons motilal issues low magnesium strasse whatever you end up with this overgrowth of bugs in small intestine and someone. The food hits there it should be. It should be sterile. But when activity in there? They they go to town right. They go to town and they ferment. The starchy foods that you're eating and you get this thing called the food baby. Everybody knows that that is you eat. And you get this bloating. This come for That's called CBO. Which very horrible condition it. So many people suffer from right right and that's still people I mean. All bacteria produce gas. It's one thing it's down your coal in any current lease it when it's in your upper gi making 'cause a lot of discomfort so we see that a lot anything that is again a big a big issue with the reflux also mobility issues. I work with a lot of people talking about how you eat slowing down chewing food while doing some deep belly breathing before you eat. Takhar relax bagel nerve that runs along the whole digestive track. I think that goes a long way. I've had multiple people. Tell me just by slowing down and chewing. Better reflects gone on a lot of. What was your stress sympathetic? Nervous system is your fight or flight nervous system and one of the things does is shut down your digestive system because when you're running from a sabertooth tiger you don't want to be digesting your food. You want all the blood to build your muscles and and be able to run as fast. You can't so that's what happens when you eat under stress and this is this is why these practices. You're talking about deep breathing. Taking pause called. Take five take take five breasts before every meal and see what happens It's a very powerful reset in fact what was interesting when I was writing my book. Ultra metabolism. I found that there was this paper that showed that the sympathetic nervous system attack connects to the fat cells. So this is the stress response And and when you're stressed it inhibits the fat cells metabolism so literally slows your metabolism so being stressed literally Metabolism make you gain weight
Mastering the Menopause with Emma Bardwell
"We're GONNA be talking today about menopause which is a topic that probably we talked enough about until it happens to US often. Vet Light you pelvic floor or things that until you have to get to know it. You don't speak our set so I felt like let's just start off with. What is menopause for those the Dayton Yup absolutely? So you're right. It's not talked about and it's particularly not talked about. I think for younger women such as yourself so in a nutshell it is when your period stops Meno poor say menstruation Meno pause stop. The average age is fifty one. And it's usually a kind of natural part of aging Bart for some women. It might occur earlier and that might be because of genetics or it might be because of surgery and how about Peri. Menopause is at the stage leading up to us yet so paramount applause is actually probably the most important bit of the journey. I think because that's when all the kind of symptoms tend to rare and it can be quite a long journey actually for lots of women. I think there's this real kind of misnomer that it happens in your fifties and it happens overnight whereas actually that lead up that parry menopause can last up to a decade island and I always women often particularly younger. Women feel really kind of freaked out by that so I think it's really important. We don't WanNa kind of catastrophe is it. It's a totally natural part of aging. It happens to every single woman but yet I think it's really important that we are prepared and more interested in that way we kind of dive. Deep into the subject could question. I think because I realized through my own journey. There's a real lack of evidence based information out there so there's lots of women who have been through the journey and so therefore kind of thing that they know everything about it but actually there's a lot of misinformation so I think it's really important for women to get their information from experts. You know people who are actually qualified and also I think women are really underrepresented when it comes to kind of health particularly things I research. There's not enough research being done so I think there's a lot of women floundering. It can be really isolating menopause. I just wanted to kind of turn on its head. I wanted to support women and I wanted women to realize that it's not kind of game over. It's very much a time to be kind of embracing the fact that you've reached this life stage because it's a real privilege to age to get to that point absolutely. I'm touting thirty tomorrow got Michigan very old and I feel like every year every better. Have I WANNA be kind to myself have more wisdom and everyone says that my step mom said to me she would never want to go back to her twenty s because she feels so much happy within herself as he got older and. I think that's really wonderful thing that comes with age and probably something. We need to embrace more and talk about more thing. Yeah I think that's a wonderful way of looking at it and I think for my clients who come see me. It's not just about nutrition or Zeiss style advice. It's actually about regaining a sense of identity. Because you know it's amazing time to be alive you'll middle-age midlife honestly and how about premature menopause? Because I was saying to you before I know a few people kind of distant need that have gone through menopause or menopause symptoms in their twenties. Which is like you said. The average ages fifty one to lose. And you saying kind of ten years before that. You don't think this is going to happen to you until your forties all year. So why are potentially people getting it early? What is the reasons behind that? We don't actually know. It can be genetics or it can be the result of something like chemotherapy or if women have had their ovaries removed. We don't know but the stats are surprisingly high. Actually so early. Menopause which is sometimes go premature. Menopause happens to one in one hundred women to that under the age of forty. So that's quite high her and then under the age of thirty one in a thousand women and then under twenty one in ten thousand while. It's still possible. You liked everything. How many people are on the planets that still quite few people experience absolutely. And how does that impact your ability when you become Perryman? Who is making you less likely to conceive or are you still able to? Who's you're still getting periods but maybe less frequently? Yes so premature ovarian insufficiency which is early menopause. Basically you can still get pregnant but your chances are much reduced so you can still be late. So that's something definitely to bury. Mike's I think a lot of women have a real sense of panic if they want to have children. So that's different something to talk to your GPA about but in your forties if you'll just naturally going through peri menopause. So your eastern levels are plummeting. The not necessarily plummeting but they're kind of on a rollercoasters. They can really kind of p control and that is when women often get symptoms but you can still get pregnant but your chances are reduced. Okay how Stephanie. Get to know and so what are the symptoms? What are they simply? We're talking about? You might be getting todd ten years or less onerous yes. Let's not testify. What are the physical symptoms? That's talk about them fast. I was thinking of hot. Flushes is the kind of hot flashes. And night sweats. A kind of the most obvious common ones but there are. I think it's thirty. Four symptoms are. I think that's actually probably more like seventy so in a really diverse kind of range of things from ACNE SA- changes in skin oversee sagging because eastern plays a big role in college and production. So often women find. Baskin is more lax. There is things like insomnia. That's a pretty common one but also the psychological things so things like memory loss brain fog just a lack of
"menopause" Discussed on Menopause Management
"Than what's on the at Sign Harrington is the worst thing about. Menopause and Heart. Disease is the most likely thing to get worse at heart. Attack IS NUMBER. One now for osteoporosis. This is another disease that worsens at menopause and directly because Paulson plus and it's another disease which women are woefully. This simple osteoperosis much. More significant than breast cancer in terms of how many women are at risk and how many will actually get a super six one at a four. Women will suffer a fracture due to osteoporosis. And the one out of four twenty percent will die from a complication of the survivors. Fifty percent will require assisted living or home health care. See just those numbers she hadn't you say holy cow. That's a line of women to that the fact that women have the misconception that they could prevent osteoporosis taking calcium and you cough how the problem enormous add to that the misconception that dairy products contain a lot of calcium and you come the problem exponentially. Do you see why this podcast is so important? I have taught you in numerous podcasts. That osteoporosis is due to estrogen levels. Curie osteoporosis is building walls. It's due to estrogen. So estrogen lost equals bone loss. Calcium has.
Schizophrenia in Men
"I'm Rachel Star here with my co host Gape Howard last episode. We discussed how schizophrenia affects women and this episode. We are focusing on the gentleman exciting. We have Jason Jepson. Who's GONNA join us? He is a mental health advocate. Also a veteran. Who HAS SCHIZOPHRENIA? And Dr Finch will return to help us understand the medical side of things that are going on Rachel. I'm looking forward to a great show. I'm excited to gave last month. Rachel we learned how schizophrenia impacts women. You know things. Like motherhood and pregnancy and menopause and aging and. I don't think there's a lot of people were surprised that any illness would impact a female differently than it would a male but we sort of want to open that up because there were some big differences in how schizophrenia presents in males over females and I think that was surprising for us during the research because we just assumed that an illness hits women differently because I think society is conditioned to believe that women go through everything differently. The fact that we hear mentioned over and over is that men tend to get diagnosed far earlier in life than women. Do with schizophrenia. However as we talked about last episode that's not always true especially in families who have a history of mental illness and even amongst like different ethnic groups but due to being diagnosed younger age men often have not attained the same degree of social development as women. Do at the onset of schizophrenia and that can contribute to poor social outcomes during our research. We learned that the reason that menor often diagnosed earlier because men are showing more emotions or boehner abilities and when seen in women as we learned last month. They're just like oh well she's a woman so of course she's being emotional. Where when the exact same symptoms seen in men that like oh? This is a problem but as you pointed out getting diagnosed earlier isn't necessarily the advantage that we think it is in males because stereotypically they're looking at you for all kinds of issues as we're GONNA learn from our guest. One of those issues is violence or rage or anger. My question to you Rachel is. Do you think that men have an easier time with schizophrenia? Or is it just a different time? I would definitely say a different time being diagnosed earlier that in itself and we talked about mini episodes ago where it comes to diagnosing children where that has a huge impact on you. You know if you know earlier that you have a major mental disorder that can change just how other people view you yourself. How your parents view your future? I know that's definitely come up just in my own life. But I can't imagine. Had I gotten the diagnosis in high school. My parents probably immediately would have started wearing like while she can't go to college. Just assuming things so just like being diagnosed sooner. I think is really scary. And then the flip side not being diagnosed until your mid twenties like many women. Are you probably been dealing with this for a while? Had not been able to get help so it's definitely a different situation. I don't think either side is going to be easier anytime. You're dealing with schizophrenia. It's going to be intense across the board. Rachel do a refresh real quick and talk about symptoms that tend to impact men more than women. Men tend to have more serious cognitive deficits more the flat effect we have a monotone voice very dull expression. You don't really react the way that people would normally react in situations blunted emotional responses where it's just kind of. I don't WanNA say chill but you're just kind of you know straight across the board when things happen. Speech reduction and men tend to be less active than women. And of course just because you're male or female doesn't mean that you fit in a nice tidy box right it just just because you're male doesn't mean that you will have all of these and just because you're male doesn't mean that your family will not notice or will notice. We're speaking in generalities when we talk about stereotypically. This is how schizophrenia presents in men. Yes absolutely and Rachel. Of course we love you very much. But you're a woman living with schizophrenia. So you thought it would be appropriate to bring on a male who is living schizophrenia. And that's why we have a great guest who you spent some time with Jason. Jepson as you said. He's a veteran. He's awesome. He's living with schizophrenia. And you did a great interview. You're ready to roll it absolutely here. We go today's guest. Is Jason Jepson? Who also has schizophrenia? Thank you so much for being with us today. Jason Thank you for having me so right away. I what you to tell our listeners about yourself okay. Sure I'm a writer. I started journaling when I was in the seventh grade. I have two books out. I'm also a veteran. I'm a part of the Vet Council at McGuire. Veterans Hospital remained. Sure that veterans don't fall through the cracks and we dragged him to mineral services. It's awesome well. Thank you so much. Thank you very much for serving for US. Thank you so much. So what age were you diagnosed with schizophrenia? I was the diagnosis of schizophrenia. When I was twenty three I was diagnosed in the army. The thing is. I don't know how your schizophrenia is. But my I knew the voices the voices in my head board the other soldiers that fought in California where I was stationed in also friends from Richmond. Virginia because I saw my heaven hear their voices. It took me a little while to Except my illness. Did you have signs that you noticed earlier? Age Not really in high school. I'd mild depression. I saw a counselor for short time but I still was social. Had Friends and I've played Lacrosse in high school. Now do you have visual hallucinations. Also are yours mainly audio then in my twenties it was mainly voices that I couldn't figure out. Where were they will coming from? Stow our episode. Today is focusing on. How men experienced schizophrenia. Different than women? Do you have any thoughts on that? Do you feel. There's much of a difference Well I think everybody's experience for Schizophrenia. Is Different in general. I think we hear voices delusions but the specifics of a different. If that makes any sense okay. It's just important to find the right treatment plant for men and women you know. Find the right medication. Maybe have therapy. How does someone to trust like your parents or your friends and all that takes trial and error for both men and women. I want to ask you this because I think it has like two sides that you see. A lot of men with schizophrenia ended up homeless and I know with you also working with veterans. You hear that a lot too when you have a lot of people coming back with post traumatic stress disorder. What are your thoughts on that? Yes what kills me makes me when attack. This mental health thing for veterans is out veterans actually committed suicide in the parking lot of the. Va Can you believe that? I mean there's gotta be an answer to that. I mean. It took me a while. Ask for help myself. How do we get there? How do we combat that? You know it's just I hope. Veterans Council can reach out to them. we were still a new organization. But that's just need to ask for help and it can be take awhile but be patient. I would say men are typically known for not wanting to ask for help and I can imagine it's been doing you're talking about like soldiers you know the idea of masculinity it being even harder for guys like that exactly what you know one thing. That's helping. There's more athletes coming forward to Lesson to stigma for men. I'm sure you for that. Dwayne Rock Johnson has come out saying he gets depressed. I mean that guy's a famous actor and that's going to do great things for men in my opinion is huge. You think masculinity he's just giant muscle. What has been your biggest struggle as a man with schizophrenia? Well it's the Saudi expectations. The stereotypes gave does this wonderful on the social network but but know why kids job. I used to avoid social situations because the question. What do you do? What do you do for a living? Because I didn't have an answer then. I realized I would make a house advocate and I'm proud to be a mental health advocate when you say you're a minute health advocate that opens the door for education. What is it one in? Four people have some kind of mental illness. You know so if you open up. A mental health advocate well. My my sister has bipolar. My uncle is a schizophrenic. You know it opens it up and talking about it. Like we're doing now is the most important things to bus stigma. What advice do you have for men? That are listening. Right now with schizophrenia. Except your diagnosis is probably one of the most important things I can say when he accepted you. Get on the right medication. Be Patient with medication and It's okay to ask for help you know ask for help. It's it's okay to ask for
Unlock Your Hormonal Advantage by Harnessing the Power of Your Infradian Rhythm with Alisa Vitti
"I'M GONNA jump right in to hormonal advantage. You know a few weeks ago my girlfriend I were having a conversation and it was before she was about to get her period and she was basically in a state where I won't get into all the words but you can curse on this podcast. And so she was like the gist of it was like this does not feel like an advantage right now. This feels like a big weight and a lot of women have thought that before. Why us we go through all the stuff then the top of that the gender pay gap and this thing and that thing and it just feels like. There's a lot of huge burden. That's there on women but in your subtitle you say hormonal advantage. Tell us what's more. I just love that. You bring right to the beginning of this conversation. The cultural narrative and mythology that we're dealing with right. We have inherited a cultural narrative that says that our periods are hormones are a curse that they're problematic that their mysterious that they're unpredictable that they're problematic and that there's nothing to be done and that you're going to enter the mythology is going to be painful and they're going to have symptoms and there's just nothing you can do. Just bide your time until menopause right. That's that's pretty much you know in the nutshell so to speak the narrative that we have the problem with this is a. It's not based on real science. Be It it. Perpetuates a huge behavioral problem for women which has them basically when you believe that something is supposed to be broken when you see it as broken you then do what you take no action right so puts them in in this situation where they don't think that there's anything to do and then they do nothing which then keeps them having symptoms. It's a vicious cycle. So you know it feeds then. It goes right back and feeds this cultural narrative this mythology. That says it's going to be a burden. It's going to be a big problem and women just feel stock and they feel unhappy and the truth of it is. It's completely false. It doesn't to be this way And and I figured out a way for women to liberate themselves from the mythology from the cultural narrative and also from the actual real symptoms to which you're so excited to share about. I can't wait to get into it. Let's talk origin story. Yeah what got you interested in this topic. And what education were you brought up with? And when did things shift for you? Okay so I mean for me I definitely have had my own run in with a hormonal issue That opened my eyes to the limitations of conventional medicine for chronic. Gyn issue so there. I was you know At Johns Hopkins planning to become an Obgyn and had sort of the apex of symptoms. With what I now at what? I now know to be the polycystic Ovarian Syndrome that no one knew that I had so you know at that time for at least seven years. I went undiagnosed I grew up in Massachusetts. I had access to Harvard trained gynecologists than of course at Hopkins. I had access to Hopkins trained gynecology. I had the best of the best and I went undiagnosed for seven years when I finally was able to get a diagnosis. It was through helping my gynecologist by bringing her a report from a medical journal that I had pulled out of the library at school to that had identified all the symptoms that I was having and I said I have this Kendra is what could you share. What the symptoms were. All I had I was. I was fifty pounds heavier than I am. Now I saw had obesity. I was covered face chest and back and cystic acne. I did not meant straight from the age of twelve to twenty two. I had maybe five bleeds two of which were chemically induced with synthetic progesterone. Which if anybody has done that knows that it is delicious experience and so you know it was and I was anxious depressed. Insomnia cle was a mess. Couldn't really function in my day to day. Life with any sort of regularity predictability. I would never know today going to be a day when I had energy was. I going to be in a good mood It was kind of a really negative scary isolating experience And then all the physical symptoms certainly didn't make anyone feel good about themselves. So you know in one of my insomnia coll- nights at the library. I like any young woman in her. Twenty s we do on a Friday night or Saturday night I was like researching medical journals in obstetrics turtles to figure out what was wrong with me because no one had any answers. Everyone was just saying. I'll just go on the pill and that'll solve these problems and I said but you don't even know what the problem is. They said that's true but we should try this anyway and I just didn't feel like that was good medicine for me to to without a known cause take medication for no accurate reason. I believe in more precision kind of based medicine so I found this journal this obstetrics journal and there was a little tiny article about The Stein Leventhal disorder that described my symptoms to a t and all the bells rang inside of my head and I said Oh my gosh this is what I have so i. I waited in the parking lot of my gynecologist office the next morning. She was literally like walking in with her coffee. And just like what are you doing here and I said well you know what I'm doing here is that I would like us to do to specific tests that we have not yet done that. I think will lead us to the conclusion that I have this disorder and she was intrigued enough and gracious enough without having an appointment to do these tests and was able to confirm my diagnosis that. In fact I did have polycystic ovaries and politico very syndrome. And when I I? I was so excited drew like Oh my goodness after years of confusion and dead ends and no answers to have something on a name for it. It was very validating since identity that I'm just crazy right. I'm not something actually going into something going on and I said excellent and I said so now what you know which is sort of like the new Englander in me like now. What do we do? Let's take action and she said well. Unfortunately there isn't really much that we can do for you. This is incurable. And you know we can. You're going to continue to have problems. The obesity that you have today is going to get worse. It might turn into diabetes You will have problems with fertility you may not be able to have children You will have an increased risk of heart disease and cancer. And I'm twenty at this time getting this prognosis after the diagnosis and asking for what support. My Medical Support Team was going offer me and she said we really just don't have anything we can. Just medicate your symptoms along the way and hope for the best but there's nothing that we can do and it was in that moment which I you know. You don't plan for these things. I wasn't like looking to react to particular way I was. It was all happening real time. But in that moment this very specific loud voice or see you know. I don't know how exactly to describe. It was just like that's not your future. An internal wisdom. Good way to describe it and I just repeated that to her. I said that's not my future. So he goes. I was terrified was very terrifying moment to just have to be facing this and so I just repeated what this voice was saying she said well what are you gonNA do. I said I'm going to go take my very expensively trained mind and figure this out and she said well. I'll be here when you want the prescription for the pill and first of all you chase me down on the Paparazzi me. And then tell me. I'M NOT GONNA listen. It was great you were forging your own journey so what happened from there. So that's I proceeded to really get deeply more into the research around functional nutrition epigenetics chronobiology Chinese medicine and really started piecing together what the endocrine system needs to be brought back online. Because fundamentally what I discovered in my research was that most of these conditions these castaway. Gyn conditions like fibroids like Dimitrius like P. C. O. S. Where there's nothing really that we have from conventional medicine to help women like us. That's why I called him castaway because we're kind of like left to figure it out. Is that this. They're fundamentally caused by systematic disruption. And if you simply start to support the endocrine system the body resolves the symptoms and it just works so efficiently and safely across the board for these different conditions. And that's that's really the origin story of my transformation. It was amazing to watch my body. Just recover fifty pounds coming off without deprivation without intense workout my skin clearing up and my ovulation and my cycle coming back. It came back at twenty two and has not left yet.

I an after you get the education then you could make decisions about what you prefer.

It might be your gut telling you know don't try it but if you try a bunch of things and they don't work and and you end up trying something that previously didn't sound appealing you'd be surprised at how many people will completely completely changed their minds about what they prefer just based on their gut reaction shen to what their body tells as opposed to what the brain told him and when that happens a few times they realize that your brain was telling them things along the lines of all the sound bites the high the <hes> the fahd's the trends the fears the misconceptions all that stuff. That's out there around you in the environment the stuff that isn't your body talking to you what you want.

"Ten so there you have it a bunch of dietary supplements with a variety of benefits fits for various aspects of menopause and as you can see each supplement tends to address only a couple of your menopausal woes and there are no supplements for the vast majority of your menopausal woes so uh knowing which supplements do which things for your body with regard minute was is a very very beneficial thing and if you like targeting your symptoms individually you can do that with some of these supplements <hes> some women combine vitamins minerals supplements and herbal remedies to target all their specific symptoms and that works if you you are okay with using multiple different products for multiple different purposes the whole idea is for you to find ways to do whatever it is you wanna undo for managing your menopause and i find that most people in general most women in particular take at least a handful of different things here and there even if they only take them once in a while my goal is free to know the limitations of each at every <unk> option out there and you know i give you this item and education with regard to everything. There is diet lifestyle. I on vitamins minerals supplements herbs hormones non hormone medications. I'm all about the the educational arm of managing your menopause see. I don't care how you manage. I care that you know what you're doing and unfortunately most people make the mistake of thinking that all these options are equal in their abilities to provide alleviation of your symptoms or to permit diseases or what have you that is not true. Everything has limitations. Everything has some benefits events and everything has some risks. The problem is that most people don't know what those benefits risks and limitations are and when you don't know that you probably aren't going to be successful at that issue menopause so since i am the person who cares about educating you and i care about making sure you're successful in managing your menopause. I just tell you everything. Have you noticed how i just tell you everything. It's like i have no filter between my brain and my mouth. I just make sure you know all your options and i make sure you know all the facts about each of the options and then i try to help you tailor your options to you so that you pick what's right for you and that's why no two women. Should you do the same thing for managing the menopause i do not like it when women tell each other that you know they should do this and they should do that. They think that they should all do the same okay. Thanks that that that is not the way it works at not the way it works well for any of those women either so instead of just doing was someone else does my goal is for. You know how to do what's best for you. In fact i teach him into add the words right so for me to every sentence that they utter about menopause just everything you say add forty and that will make it clear here that you are specifying only what works for you and make it clear that you know you're not trying to impose it on your friends and other females in your life <hes> we live in a world where people impose a lot of things on each other and i don't know why that seems to <hes> be the norm but it is and when you stop thinking about how different women are and how different your menopause are and how are go had different goals. Are it surprising that we tend to think that all women should do the same thing we should not all do the same thing under any circumstance with regard to anything and so i think learning about the individual limitations capabilities of each option makes all the sense of the world and why i'm the only unbiased educator out there telling you this. I don't know so whatever you e counter someone. Who has the answer tells you what you should do e wary. I often say eight. If there's a product involved run and what i mean by that is anyone with a product to sell. You isn't gonna tell you the truth truth. They're gonna tell you what they need to tell you to get you to buy the product so be careful. Be careful with a binding into everything believing everything you hear because everything you hear is not true. I believe in facts. I believe in science i believe in telling the truth and i believe in letting you make your own decisions. So so <hes> i just i have not wanted to tell people what to do. <hes>.

"Hello listeners. It's been a pas taylor bringing you the state of menopause in the world today. You know i sure talk about a lot of stuff. Don't i i mean i was talking about diet a few weeks ago and then last time i talked about vitamins and now we're gonna talk about minerals which see i do everything in units and i do everything in a stepwise fashion and if you listen to these broadcasts in order you will see a logical progression and you will connect the dots and you will understand everything. If you watch my videos on youtube same thing watching it or you will be shocked at how much you know. It's like you don't know what you don't know and when you realize that you didn't know something it's just mind boggling but you'll have one off hobble but after another if if you watch things in order and you see how they all fit together so we're going to pick up where we left off in the last broadcast and the last time i presume the vitamins for specifically for menopause and in this broadcast will present the minerals for minimum pause and the the next one opposite dietary supplements so if you have my book which is menopause your management your way now and for the rest of your life life. This material is sprinkled throughout the book in conjunction with the subject matter for which each mineral pertains but it's really okay great that in these broadcasts and on my youtube channel i can cover things in different formats. I could group things differently. I can i could just talk talk about nothing but minerals as a topic and so i like to consolidate things into one one broadcast for you so that you can get it from a different angle if you're all about vitamins minerals and you wanna use management oppose either exclusively or with other options. This is a perfect broadcast for you will along with the others that are in the same genre because not only we get the facts all the pertinent minerals one single broadcast. You'll also learn about some of the misconceptions exceptions that are held by nearly all women and just as i did in the last broadcast what i'll do here's all go through the minerals alphabetically a- designate which ones have specific benefits for managing menopause so starting at the early part of the alphabet we have be for boron. Unfortunately although it's the first one it's not that important. It's what we call a. Trace mineral a trace mineral is a mineral that you need only in very small quantities to be considered a trace ace mineral. The recommended intake is generally less than twenty milligrams per day so what's morons roland menopause well well. It's one of five trace minerals that are important in bozeman help and boron affects the way your body handles the other the minerals dead benefit your bounce you see some things aren't that important by themselves but they are important for the other players. Another thing boron does does is it. Increases your estrogen levels. It helps you buy hold onto estrogen a little little more silk. Gorod is a helper for your bone quality and and your bone quantity because it helps with the minerals that have to do with quality and it helps with estrogen that has to do with quantity conveniently.

"A state date of menopause in the world today and it's time for another audio tutorial on menopause as you know i teach you how automatic german-polish your way so i try to cover all the options every which way in the last few broadcasts i've been talking about guy it and and things that have to do with food and the last video and the last broadcast was about how you can't get the same benefit from vitamins out of a bottle as you can get from vitamins in foods. I made sure sure you understood that. You can't really take your vitamins that are a bottle and eat whatever you want and expect the same benefits but i am a realist and i know that a a lot of you will still rely on bottle vitamins to meet some of your needs and since my job is to teach you how to manage things your way. I'm going to teach you in which vitamins can help you manage your menopause regardless of whether you get them from food or from a bottle so what i'm gonna do today is addressed the vitamins that are pertinent to menopause management specifically now not let me give you a primer on everything having to do with vitamins but i'm only going to focus on the abide ovens as they pretend to menopause and eventually i'll be addressing every symptom and disease of menopause individually and when i do that i'll present the vitamins that can help you with each one of those but today i'm going to just cover a broad view of vitamins and it's only vitamins because the next broadcast casts will be on minerals and the one after that dietary supplements because i cover the category by category so i'll give you an overview which means opposite the material cereal vitamin vitamin and what i'll do is all designate the things that each vitamin can do for your menopause and this may help you you greatly okay because if you're a person who likes to use vitamins you need to know which ones do what right so i'm going to start by discussing vitamins elements in general k your body cannot make its own vitamin so you have to get through your diet it or for supplements and when you get vitamins in food they're mixed in combination so mango doesn't contain just vitamin c. It contains vitamin vitamin b. along with the vitamin c. So mother nature has packaged vitamins in food in combinations is it are just right so we call the vitamins combination and that means that the vitamins and food are actually more efficient. That's what i was talking about in the last broadcast but in contrast contrast the vitamins you take from a bottle are isolated so along with vitamin c. capsules or a package of vitamin c powder is nothing but by david c whenever you isolate just one vitamin it's cold isolation and isolation is significant deficient in that your body handles an isolated vitamin very differently didn't handle spider considering combination but the reality reality is it. Most people did not eat diet. They give them enough vitamins. Most people eat far too much process package in overcooked food. You'd get their vitamins slowly from their diet and not only that even if you eat a completely plant based diet you may still not get enough vitamins and that's because the nutrient content of soil will affect the quality quantity of the vitamins in your food because foods have basically unpredictable quantities vitamins. All whole industry has grown out of the need to supplement ah diets with vitamins from bottle so when you take a vitamin supplement from a bottle it comes into force there's natural and synthetic now age is go way way way back early. In my radio broadcasts. I've dissecting dissected the definitions of the words natural and synthetic and when i did that you learned that the word natural does not i need better or safer you also learned that the word synthetic does not mean worse or unsafe and once again the meetings usually assigned assigned. Those two words are pretty much misplaced when it comes to bites when it comes to vitamins the word natural usually means the vitamin is a very low potency if you're eating enough fruit veggies. That's not going to be a problem but most people don't eat enough fruits and veggies. She's synthetic. Vitamins are actually much more potent. The natural vitamins and sometimes a bottle has vitamins said ah have synthetic vitamins in combination with natural vitamins to make the match more stable or to standardize the quantities of the vitamins so so the bottom line is that bottle vitamins can be either natural or synthetic or both and then there's another another way to categorize vitamins. They are either fat soluble a water soluble. The fact soluble vitamins are vitamins a d any e. k. and their vision international units except for vitamin a. which could be international units or retinal equivalents or milligrams water soluble. Vitamins are all the b-vitamins at vitamin a. and they're all measured in milligrams milligrams. Okay so that's the basic stuff about vitamins. What i'll do now is basically delve into <unk> discussing each of the vitamins in terms of their benefits forbid applause okay. The whole list of vitamins is vitamin a. b. c. d. e. k. so we'll start with by vitamin. A. is all about skin and you can remember that thinking of a not as the first letter down bet and skin as the first layer of you the magic thing about vitamin as that it has has an anti oxidant activity now the word oxidation of the word oxygen exposure to oxygen causes things to rust and oxidation is the same things rusted so when you see a rusty door hinge it's old and rusty from exposure to the outdoors works well when your skin gets old rusts too and your skin is exposed to the air in the year as oxygen so after years and years as of exposure to oxygen in the air your skin starts aging and vitamin a. helps prevent that aging process so that toward it beads would it says it's an anti oxidants so what's one of the very first things women notice when they lose their estrogen at menopause dry skin and dry. Thanks become wrinkled. Specially skin and recalled things look old so vitamin-a is an antioxidant and that helps prevent dry skin wrinkling and a._j. Now what's another skin.

"Hello, everybody is menopause Taylor really is say of menopause world today. I like to discuss everything about the depaz e cluding the socialist sets. And sometimes we get so caught up in all the physical stuff that we forget about some of the social things. And what are things that I wanna talk about. It's menopause and divorce. I know not fun topic. Everybody knows someone who's got divorce or is getting a divorce thinking about getting worse. But that's just not the same as knowing the facts about divorce, and I want to talk about. Some of the facts about Minna pause and divorce the two together. That's the key here. Everything in my world is about menopause. I live eat, drink sleep, minerals. I look at everything from the perspective of minimum. So we're gonna look at the force from the perspective of menopause. So. Do you know what the most common cause of divorce is at the time of menopause? I mean, what would you think? What do you think it's the man having a midlife crisis and wanting a younger woman. Do you think it's the fact the guy cannot deal with the woman's Nitta pause and all her symptoms emotional issues and disinterested sex? Or do you think it's because of the menopausal woman's depression, or do you think it's the menopausal woman's decision just to be independent or do you think it's sexual infidelity by the husband? I mean, what do you think it is? What do you think the may cost the most common cause divorces at minimum pots eighty? I'm beans. What is the prize you discover that it's the menopausal woman's decision to become independent. It is. I mean, does that shock you? Most people say, oh my God, I had no idea. Most people think it's a crisis for the guy. They think it's anything, but the one they most people say, it's not that it is that one that's the most common. So I always start with the statistics. I always start the basics. Really. If you look at the statistics on divorce, divorce is actually becoming less common for young adults for young people. Divorce is becoming less common. I think that's because we're getting married later in life. I mean, you know, they're not getting married when they're in their early twenties anymore. They're usually getting married them, mid thirties. So it's becoming less common. But the opposite is true for people over the age of fifty. So why that is. You know, there's even a name for divorce over the age of fifty. It's called great voice. That awful grey divorce f for great divorce. The divorce rate has doubled since nineteen ninety. Yeah, nineteen. Ninety five at a one thousand people over the age of fifty. Got divorce. And now in will actually two thousand fifteen as of two thousand fifteen ten out of one thousand people over fifty, give divorce and for people over the age of sixty five divorce rates have tripled since nineteen ninety. I mean, isn't that shocking. I don't know. There's something about seeking people being more stable or more committed as they get older. So I think most of us they, well, if we get through the earlier of marriage, the marriage spinner been going on for a good, ten, twenty years. We don't say much in terms of divorce the con- but the truth is if the ends

"It may sound ridiculous that something as common as Minna pas is something that people deny, but it's really the truth. You would be surprised at the number of women who are incomplete denial about menopause, and you'd be even more surprised at their level of. Denial. They don't just denied. It happens day denied that it will ever happen to them. And sometimes they even deny while it's happening to them. I mean, they have their head stuck in the sand. You know, I give seminars, admit applause, on. I mean, seminars and videos on menopause. And when I'm giving a seminar video live and people can see me and I'm talking about denial of Minna pas. I have a beagle pile of sand and I have a Barbie doll and I literally take the Barbie doll. I suffer head way down in the city because it's that visual of this is literally how it is for women. I mean, it's bad enough that society doesn't recognize the existence of menopause, but I'm talking about the berry women themselves who are living through it symptom by symptom day in and day out. They are in denial. So despite the absolutely obvious nature of menopause, there's actually a great deal of denial, but every single aspect of it with. Regarded as more of a curse than a bonus of longevity and there's this avalanche of shame dread and fear that fuels their denial. I find it really shocking how much women will avoid doing anything that associates them with men walls. You know, there's a book by Gail Sheehy and she wrote a book called the silent passage, and it's all about menopause. And when she got her book years ago, the nineteen eighties, I think she approached Oprah, talk about Minna pause on her show and the producer of Oprah informed her that it was easier to get guests to talk about murdering their spouses than about their menopause. That tells you something about this topic and how how, how much discomfort it creates. So we're gonna cop about the denial of undeniable in a pause. One thing I've learned about the denial of menopause is that it's very commonly linked with desperation. About information on posit. I seen this all sorts of ways. One of the things that happens to me over and over again is that all go to some fancy shindig gathering where everybody's just to the nines and you know there's something about black, tie that make women really put themselves in the sexiest attire they can find. So no matter what her age woman will wear revealing garment to a black tie. You know, plunging necklines really high high heels, slit skirts. All kinds of things met missing backs to dresses. These women are beautiful, but I had this very handle mind. I'm always looking at things thinking about the significance of them, and I like to study social behavior. And when I see that. In an older woman. Yells look at my sexy dress, but it's usually camouflage for not doing very sexy. And so inevitably, what happens to me at these events? And I mean, equa single time I go to like this is habits. I need some new person and when we start talking and getting to know each other and they asked me what I do.
