    The Breast Cancer Genetics Episode

    The Breast Cancer Genetics Episode

    One of the many decisions women often have to make when diagnosed with breast cancer is whether or not they want to test for breast cancer genetics. This episode discusses aspects affecting that decision, from cost to insurance implications, future screenings, other cancer risks, and more.

    Hey there podcast listeners. Before we jump into today's episode, I want to do a little bit of housekeeping briefly, to let you know that if you were a subscriber via email for podcast notifications, there is a good chance that you have accidentally been moved over to a mailing list that is exclusively for my new baking website. And I will tell you upfront, I am sorry about that in trying to segment lists, and yet the people who wanted to be receiving notifications about the baking website, thisbakinglife.com, and people who want to receive notifications about the podcast, ThisUnmillenniallife.com, there's a little bit of overlap there.

    I'm your host, Regan Jones, and welcome to today's show. So I'm releasing this episode in the latter part of September, but we are quickly going to be in the month of October very soon. And as most of you know, October is breast cancer awareness month. But for me Breast Cancer Awareness is something that we can talk about any time of the year. And today's episode is going to not only feature my full length interview with a breast cancer geneticist as we talk about breast cancer genetics, but I'm gonna come out back at the end for the odds and ins ending and talk to you briefly about a few things that I experienced or testing that I had done a procedure that I had done when I was diagnosed with breast cancer that are so different than what my mother who we talked about briefly in this episode, because of the genetic component of this, my mother had in either of her breast cancer experiences in the mid 90s. And in the early 2000s. So the reason I point that out is because I have somewhat joked in time in talking to people that it's not your mother's breast cancer anymore, there are things that are still quite standard or haven't changed a lot in the last few years, namely

    The Metabolic Testing with Calorify Episode

    The Metabolic Testing with Calorify Episode

    For years dietitians have used formulas to estimate (imperfectly) a person's metabolic needs. But a new company using well-established technology is taking the guesswork out of metabolic testing using doubly labeled water. Today's episode talks about the precision of the science and the implications for unmillennial women in midlife who want to gain a better understanding of their bodies and overall calorie needs using the best at-home metabolism test.

    Today's broadcast is brought to you by your color guru, your color. guru.com is where I went this last year to get my color consultation done. And there's a little bit of comedy in thinking about having your colors done. I say that in air quotes because many of us as unmillennials, remember back in the days of the 80s, doing your color, but let me tell you what your color Guru is doing is so far beyond that. And they're giving you so many tools when you actually have your colors done. And the reason that I say so far beyond that is because back in the day, when we would find out what our colors were, I think it was like four seasons, winter, summer, fall and spring. But your color Guru is much more robust than that. For instance, I'm a moonlit summer which is different than a sunlit summer. And one of the things that I love the most about your color guru and the color consultation consultation that I had done is that it comes with a color card, I have both a printed card that I can throw in my purse, so that when I am out shopping, I can pull that card out of my purse and hold it up to anything that I'm looking at to determine Hey, is this one my best colors, I also have the JPEG on my phone. So if I don't have the card with me, I just simply look at my phone. And it has been invaluable. It makes shopping so much easier. So if you are interested in having your colors gone, or gifting it to someone else, you can get 10% off of your color guru consultation by simply using the code Regan, which is r e g, a n at checkout at your color guru.com. There's a link in the show notes. If your skin doesn't know whether to break out or wrinkle if you're caught between planning the third grade class party and researching retirement plans, or if you want to work out but the idea of CrossFit makes your 40 Something knees a you've come to the right place. Welcome to this on Millennial Life.

    I'm your host, Regan Jones. And welcome to today's show. And Welcome to Season Seven of this unmillennial life. Before we get started in what is going to be a very personal story about what I've already shared with you in the season seven teaser trailer about my experience with my dad and his hospitalization. I want to be transparent with you in a way that I haven't been transparent in the past. Not that I've been trying to hide anything from you, as a listener of the show. But the last few years, really as COVID kind of came onto the scene and the country went through a very divisive election, which it looks like we are headed into another divisive election season as those things unfolded, and as I was confronted with what I have been very transparent about my experience being diagnosed with breast cancer, and going through the treatment of that I very honestly have found myself over the last few years with this podcast, in a position to frankly not talk about some of the issues. And some of the topics that were top of mind for me. And the reason is because to be very honest with you. And I'm going to say this upfront knowing that for some of you, this may change how you feel about me and this podcast. And it's taken me a long time to get to the point where I am comfortable with accepting that for some of

Optimal aging & NAD+ episode

I was the guest for this episode and it was truly a blessing to have a conversation with Regan especially after we had the opportunity to meet in person the week prior to recording! Her podcasts and website provides science-backed information that will support our health and lifestyles as we journey through this stage of life! Thank you so much Regan and I hope we can do it again!
