After failing to find any medical help for her hormone symptoms in her early 40's, she discovered she could turn things around through comprehensive testing, diet, lifestyle and supplements.

#117 The Health Benefits Of Time Restrictive Eating
I get a lot of questions from women about Intermittent Fasting and whether it's something we should be doing.
There are lots of health benefits to fasting, but it's definitely not for everyone, and you know that I am not a fan of any kind of deprivation or calorie counting!
Which is why I prefer a form of fasting that's easier to do, particularly when we have got hormones to think about. And that's something called Time Restricted Eating (or overnight fasting).

#115 Menopause in the Workplace; Why We Still Need To Keep Pushing
The world has thankfully changed since I started talking about menopause in 2014! Back then, nobody wanted to mention the 'M' word, it was misunderstood and avoided like the plague.
These days everyone is talking about it! From celebrities to royals, many women are now openly sharing their experience. And many organisations are finally realising they need to support this large and growing section of their workforce.
But not everyone is getting the support they need, so if you're still struggling in your workplace OR you are responsible for female employees in your organisation, listen up. I'm going to go through why you need to keep pushing this forward.

#114 How Alcohol Affects Your Hormones, Weight, Mood, Sleep and More...
This is not my favourite topic ! I'm a wine and gin lover, and I'm not giving them up very soon.
BUT I have to face the facts that alcohol is not good for me (or my hormones). The indisputable evidence is there and there's no getting away from it!
My responsibility is to share this with you too. So you can make your own mind up about how much alcohol you want in your life. And it may just give you some motivation to give up or just cut down a bit.

#113 Hot Flushes, Hot Flashes & Night Sweats - How To Stop Them
Hot flushes (or hot flashes) and night sweats are some of the most common symptoms during menopause.
It's happening because of the fluctuating levels of oestrogen and progesterone, which are thought to have a very key role in your thermoregulation in your brain, your temperature control.
Here are my top ways to stop hot flushes ruining your life!

#112 'Menupause'; Dr Anna Cabeca's new book with 5 keto eating plans for weight loss
I was thrilled to catch up with Dr Anna Cabeca for this week's podcast!
She's a DO, OBGYN, FACOG, is triple-board certified and a fellow of gynecology and obstetrics, integrative medicine, and anti-aging and regenerative medicine. She has special certifications in functional medicine, sexual health, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
For the past 20 years, she’s served 10,000+ women in her private practice— and millions more through her books, online videos and articles.
Her new book is called MenuPause, and in it she shares 5 different keto style eating plans that will help jump start your weight loss, in just 6 days.
Anna has travelled extensively and what she doesn't know about menopause and hormones isn't worth knowing!
I hope you enjoy our chat. And 'Menupause' is available on Amazon from April 2022.
I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and i like that there is a variety of short and long episodes. The short ones are a quick dose and sometimes i need just a little bit and not so much info being thrown at me so i appreciate the short episodes! As someone with PCOS it is helpful to hear more information on hormones.
I’m a big fan of educational podcasts such as this one. Nicky’s episode on thyroid knowledge was very informative and helped me become better aware of what to look for. Looking forward to more.
Love the mental health tips and the reviews of books to help ease stress! Needed during a time like this.
