    Fitness for Peri + Post Menopausal Women PH295

    Fitness for Peri + Post Menopausal Women PH295

    Stacy T. Sims, MSc, PhD, is a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist who aims to revolutionize exercise nutrition and performance for women.
    She has directed research programs focusing on female athlete health and performance and pushing the dogma to improve research on all women.
    During her tenure at Stanford, she had the opportunity to translate earlier research into consumer products and a science-based layperson's book (ROAR) written to explain sex differences in training and nutrition across the lifespan. Both the consumer products and the book challenged the existing dogma for women in exercise, nutrition, and health. This paradigm shift is the focus of her famous "Women Are Not Small Men” TEDx talk.
    Her contributions to the international research environment and the sports nutrition industry has established a new niche in sports nutrition; and established her reputation as the expert in sex differences in training, nutrition, and health.
    Stacy currently holds a Senior Research Associate position with SPRINZ- AUT University, supervises PhD students, writes academic papers, and is on the advisory board of some cutting edge companies including Tonal Strength Institute, WILD.AI, and EXOS.  She also has her own business (www.drstacysims.com) where she creates and delivers online learning material focused on women training with their physiology across the lifespan.
    She currently resides at the beach in Mt. Maunganui, New Zealand with her husband and young daughter.

    Support for Recurrent Pregnancy Loss, IVF, and Autoimmunity PH293

    Dr. Erin Faules (formerly Donaldson) is on a mission to educate and challenge others to take charge of their health. She is board certified in Family Medicine, and practiced rural ER and Hospital Medicine before settling into her true love of Precision Medicine, specializing in Autoimmune Diseases. She now owns her own practice, Doctor Erin Health, where she uses genomics and comprehensive data to co-create a health plan with her patients.  
    She believes the majority of health is accomplished through daily habits, a philosophy sparked by her own health journey with autoimmune disease.  She understands first-hand the overwhelming feeling of navigating our healthcare system, and more importantly the liberation that comes with taking control back of your outcomes through optimizing daily choices. Above all, she believes joy feeds health. When not practicing medicine, you can find her hanging out with her dogs, practicing yoga, adventuring around the world, or laughing with her friends and family.

    What to Eat When with Dr. Michael Roizen: From the Vault PH 292

    What to Eat When with Dr. Michael Roizen: From the Vault PH 292

    Michael F. Roizen, MD, is an internist and anesthesiologist who is passionate about helping people choose to live younger and healthier lives.
    He is the Chief Wellness Officer at Cleveland Clinic, the co-founder of RealAge Inc, a five-time number one New York Times best-selling author, and the Chief Medical Consultant on the Dr. Oz Show.  An accomplished lecturer, researcher, CEO, television personality and author, Dr. Roizen’s myriad achievements are too numerous to count.
    Dr. Roizen continues to practice internal medicine, using the RealAge metric to motivate his patients. He routinely sees patients who are in the midst of struggling with tobacco, heart, diabetic or arthritic problems and coaches them with simple (but persistent) lifestyle changes to be able to live, feel, look and be years younger. He really enjoys getting them to throw away their medications when they no longer need them, and teaches the role of food and other simple steps in reversing disease processes.
    I had the opportunity to work with Dr. Roizen during my medical school studies, and I was thrilled to catch up with him at his home to talk about the benefits he’s witnessed since Cleveland Clinic implemented an Employee Health Plan, the most important lifestyle factors we can change to improve our overall health and wellness, and his take on What to Eat When.

My favorite ❤️

I absolutely love this podcast! I started listening last year and I’ve learned so much since then. I really enjoyed the recent podcast with @thereadystate (Kelly and Julie Starrett). I’m a physical therapist so I really connected with what they were saying.
Dr. Foucher is a wonderful host and is so knowledgeable!

Pursuing Health

Dr. Foucher does a beautiful job bridging the gap between fitness and medicine on this podcast. Really loved the episode with Dr. Terry Wahls about her struggles with MS and depression. Hearing about her courageous journey to treat the debilitating symptoms she suffered with progressive MS and her book and cookbook, The Wahls Protocol®—A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions Using Paleo Principles to help others reclaim their own health was simply amazing. Thanks to both these amazing doctors!
