How To Support Your Body During Perimenopause and Menopause

Episode 747 1h 2m


Women in midlife often experience night sweats, mood swings, and other uncomfortable and difficult symptoms resulting from hormonal shifts. This is also often a time of significant stressors, as many women are juggling parenting, a career, and even caring for elders. And contrary to popular belief, women cannot follow the same health and fitness protocols as men and expect to see the same results.

In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Mindy Pelz, Dr. Izabella Wentz, and Cynthia Thurlow about things women over 40 can do to ease their experiences during perimenopause and menopause. Dr. Mindy Pelz is a renowned holistic health expert and one of the leading voices in educating women about their hormonal health. She has empowered hundreds of thousands of people around the world to tap into their bodies' innate healing abilities through her “5-Step Approach,” which uses fasting, personalized nutrition, stress management, chemical detoxification, and lifestyle changes to optimize health and slow the aging process.

Dr. Izabella Wentz is an internationally acclaimed thyroid specialist and a licensed pharmacist who has dedicated her career to addressing the root causes of autoimmune thyroid disease after being diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis in 2009. She is the author of three books on Hashimoto’s: Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis Lifestyle Interventions for Finding and Treating the Root Cause, Hashimoto’s Food Pharmacology, and Hashimoto’s Protocol. Her latest book is Adrenal Transformation Protocol: A 4-Week Plan to Release Stress Symptoms and Go from Surviving to Thriving.

Cynthia Thurlow is a nurse practitioner, author of the bestselling book Intermittent Fasting Transformation, a two-time TEDx speaker, with her second talk having more than 14 million views, and the host of the Everyday Wellness podcast, a consistent top iTunes podcast in Nutrition.
