    Ep 207: 3 Places Nutrition Won’t Cut It In Perimenopause (and what to do)

    Ep 207: 3 Places Nutrition Won’t Cut It In Perimenopause (and what to do)

    It wasn’t that long ago where I thought I had my nutrition dialed in, I was eating consistently, getting the right amount of micronutrients and macronutrients in…and I was still not feeling well. I was having digestive issues after dinner, I felt a low grade fatigue all of the time, my energy wasn’t what I thought it should be and I wasn’t seeing results from my workouts anymore.
     
    This is all too common and I have seen it again and again in my practice, especially with women in perimenopause…you are doing all of the right things with nutrition (which IS the biggest piece of our health puzzle) but you aren’t feeling better, and maybe you are feeling worse.
     
    The truth is that there are 3 pieces of the puzzle when it comes to how your body is functioning, that if there is dysfunction there, nutrition won’t cut it. You can be eating all of  vitamins and minerals, the right ration of protein, fats and carbs, but you will still be fighting a losing battle…but I have got you covered sister.

    Ep 206: How To Know What You Want + Get What You Want In Perimenopause w/ Manuela Powell

    Ep 206: How To Know What You Want + Get What You Want In Perimenopause w/ Manuela Powell

    Have you been finding yourself feeling frustrated, stuck or unfulfilled in midlife? Maybe you are starting to wonder if you even know who you are or what you want. Or MAYBE you have realized that you have checked ALL of the boxes, but you are still feeling unfulfilled. Whether you are living on autopilot and starting to wake up and wonder what more that there is, you are not alone. I had to ask my friend and cancer surgeon turned life coach for midlife women, Manuela Powell to come on the show and share her expertise on how to start living your most outrageously real years of your life.

    Why midlife can have you asking “who am I?”
    How culture is keeping you stuck with your internal patriarchy
    The first steps to start finding yourself, what you want and start to get it
     
    Dr. Manuela Powell is a life coach for midlife women who are ready to start living the sparkliest, most outrageously real years of their lives. After finally getting the memo that she was queer at the tender age of 47, she realized most women could use some help to come out of whichever BS closet they've been stuck in forever, so she took upon herself to be their soul fluffer. For almost 20 years, Manuela was a breast cancer surgeon, but after having her second child she decided she wanted to free herself from endless work hours, toxic work environments, and unflattering scrubs. She put away her scalpel to, instead, dissect women’s minds and help them excise the “shoulds”, "musts", and “not-good-enoughs” from their brains forever, so they can be stop people-pleasing and learn to fully trust themselves, to the horror of the patriarchy police. She's a native of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and after living in NYC, Washington, DC, and Hawai'i, she currently calls Austin, Texas her home, as a single mama to her 2 sons. She dances every day, curses like a sailor who stubbed his toe, and doesn't give a single crap to people who think she should behave her age.

    Ep 205: When Your Blood Work Says You Are Fine, But you Are Not Fine, In Perimenopause

    It wasn’t that long ago that I went to my doctor for blood work because I wasn’t feeling well.

    Tune In To Learn:
     
    What to do if your blood work says you are fine but you don’t feel fine
    How to know if it is in fact your hormones or if it is something else
    What to do when you are doing ‘all of the’ things and not feeling any better

    Ep 204: How To Prioritize Pleasure, Play and Passion In Perimenopause w/ Penny van der Sluys

    Ep 204: How To Prioritize Pleasure, Play and Passion In Perimenopause w/ Penny van der Sluys

    Have you ever watched the movie ‘When Harry Met Sally’? If so, you know the part where Sally fakes an orgasm in a restaurant and a female patron is overheard saying “I’ll have what SHE is having!” This is the feeling we all know so well when we have been starved for pleasure in our lives, and not just sexual pleasure, but pleasure, play and passion of all kinds.
    These are key pieces to our puzzle in perimenopause but it’s not always that easy, evening remembering what makes us joyful or brings us pleasure just as we are can be a challenge.
     
    Finding aliveness again in pleasure, play and passion has been a massive part of getting back to thriving in perimenopause for me so I had to have my friend and pleasure expert, Penny van der Sluys on the show to talk about pleasure and how to get turned back on in life.
     
     
    Tune In To Learn
     
    How to know if missing pleasure in life is keeping you stuck
    Why pleasure can feel so hard
    How to start to prioritize pleasure in your life again
     
    Penny van der Sluys is a pleasure activist, feminine empowerment coach, conscious creatrix, soul-led connector and podcast host. She invites women to prioritise pleasure, play and passion, and discover their powerful, untapped sensual, sexual and feminine energy so they can feel confident, free and in love with their body and life. She creates unique, empowering spaces, programs and events for women in their midlife and beyond, to reclaim the feminine, explore their sexy, sensual side, discover a new way of being in sisterhood, and establish a powerful relationship with Mother Nature.

    Ep 203: Supplements…Helpful Or A Waste Of Money in Perimenopause

    Ep 203: Supplements…Helpful Or A Waste Of Money in Perimenopause

    Sister, do you have a supplement graveyard living under your bathroom sink, behind your mirror, or in the cabinet above your refrigerator? I did for YEARS. I have spent thousands of dollars in my life on supplements, most that were a waste of time and money and some that were very helpful.
    With the rise of hormone supplements on the market these days (and all over my instagram) I thought it would be a great time to share all about supplements on this episode. To help clear a few things up so you don’t waste time and money, and so you can get the help that you need!
