    Podcast Summary

    • Understanding Hormonal DetoxificationEating a protein-rich, low-sugar diet supports hormonal health, but addressing root causes through detoxification is crucial for managing hormonal imbalances.

      Hormonal balance goes beyond just having a certain level of hormones in your body. It's also about how effectively your body detoxifies and eliminates hormones, particularly estrogen. This process involves the liver, gut microbiome, and bowel movements. Eating a diet rich in protein and low in sugars can support hormonal health, but it's not a replacement for lost hormones in later life. Pauline Cox, a human science and alternative medicine expert, shares her personal experience of struggling with hormonal imbalance despite eating what she thought was a healthy diet. She normalized symptoms like heavy periods, insomnia, and anemia, but eventually recognized the importance of addressing the root cause. By focusing on hormonal detoxification, we can better understand and manage our hormonal health.

    • Understanding Hormonal Balance: Progesterone and EstrogenRecognizing the delicate balance between progesterone and estrogen is crucial for maintaining hormonal health during premenopausal years. Imbalance can lead to mood swings, heavy periods, and increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases. Adapting to maintain this balance can lead to improved overall health and well-being.

      Hormonal imbalance can go unnoticed and lead to various health issues, including mood swings, mental well-being, and chronic illness. The relationship between progesterone and estrogen is crucial in understanding hormonal health, particularly during premenopausal years. Estrogen, a dominant hormone, is responsible for growth and neuroprotection, while progesterone balances it out and helps maintain the endometrial lining and calm the nervous system. An imbalance between these hormones can lead to heavy periods, mood swings, and increased risk of neurodegenerative diseases. To maintain hormonal health, it's essential to understand this delicate balance and adapt accordingly. Recognizing the signs of hormonal imbalance and taking proactive steps to address it can lead to improved overall health and well-being.

    • Maintaining hormonal balance is key to optimal healthReduce stress, improve sleep, and alter diet to support optimal hormone production and function, including estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.

      Achieving hormonal balance is more important than focusing on a specific hormone level. Estrogen and progesterone are key sex hormones that need to be balanced for optimal health. While estrogen is important for bone health and brain function, too much can lead to negative symptoms and increased risk of female cancers. Progesterone, on the other hand, is essential for pregnancy and menstrual cycle regulation. Stress and inflammation can negatively impact progesterone production and estrogen detoxification. Lifestyle modifications, such as reducing stress, improving sleep, and altering diet, can support hormonal balance and reduce the risk of hormonal imbalances and associated health issues. Testosterone also plays a crucial role in maintaining confidence, motivation, and energy levels, especially during perimenopause and menopause. A balanced approach to hormonal health involves understanding the interplay between these hormones and implementing lifestyle changes to support their optimal production and function.

    • Midlife Motivation: Simple Solutions for Energy and Well-BeingFocus on managing stress, optimizing sleep, balancing blood sugars, and reducing inflammation for improved energy and well-being during midlife. Simple steps like magnesium supplementation can lead to significant improvements.

      Feeling motivated and energized during midlife, despite hormonal imbalances, can be achieved by focusing on simple yet effective solutions. These include managing stress, optimizing sleep, balancing blood sugars, and reducing inflammation. Hormonal imbalances can be caused by various factors, including inflammation, a hectic lifestyle, and exposure to endocrine disruptors. Starting with these foundational steps can lead to significant improvements in energy levels and overall well-being. Magnesium supplementation, for example, can help with sleep, anxiety, and blood sugar regulation. By making these incremental changes, individuals can become empowered to make further improvements and experience a profound difference in their quality of life.

    • Maintaining optimal magnesium levels for overall health, especially for womenMagnesium glycinate with vitamin B6 boosts progesterone and serotonin, improving sleep and mood. Daylight exposure and proper nutrition support serotonin production. Additional supplements like 5-HTP, brami leaf, and adaptogens may help.

      Maintaining optimal magnesium levels is essential for overall health, especially for women as they age. High blood sugar, inflammation, alcohol consumption, certain medications, and aging can deplete magnesium levels. Magnesium glycinate, when paired with vitamin B6, is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that can help boost progesterone and serotonin levels, leading to better sleep and mood. Exposure to early morning daylight and consuming enough amino acids, vitamins, and minerals can also support serotonin production. For those needing additional support, supplements like 5-HTP, brami leaf, and adaptogens may be helpful. Remember, simple strategies like getting enough daylight and proper nutrition can have a significant impact on mood and sleep.

    • The importance of a dark sleeping environment for healthy neurological development and hormonal balanceMaintaining a dark sleeping environment is essential for neurological development and hormonal balance, impacting weight loss and metabolic health as we age.

      Maintaining a dark sleeping environment is essential for healthy neurological development for all ages, including children. Our thin eyelids allow light to enter even when we don't feel it, and disruptive lighting during sleep can negatively impact hormonal balance. Additionally, weight loss can be a challenge when dealing with hormonal imbalances, particularly the relationship between estrogen and metabolic health. As we age, our hormones shift, leading to increased insulin and hunger hormones, and decreased progesterone, growth hormone, and testosterone. This can result in stubborn belly fat. For children, ensuring a dark sleeping environment is crucial for proper neurological development, and for adults, addressing hormonal imbalances through diet, exercise, and potentially medical intervention can aid in weight loss.

    • The body's focus on survival makes weight loss challengingThe loss of muscle mass and magnesium deficiency can lead to insulin resistance, increased insulin levels, higher blood sugar, and weight gain. Our brains seek dopamine from sugary and processed foods, creating a cycle of hunger, increased appetite, and weight gain.

      Our body's focus on survival can make weight loss and maintaining motivation a significant challenge. The loss of muscle mass and magnesium deficiency can lead to insulin resistance, causing increased insulin levels and higher blood sugar, which is often stored as fat. This cycle can result in a vicious cycle of hunger, increased appetite, and weight gain. Additionally, our brains are wired to seek out dopamine, a feel-good neurotransmitter, through sugary and processed foods. This dopamine spike reinforces the brain's desire for more sugar, making it difficult to resist cravings. To overcome these powerful drives, it's essential to provide the brain with the nutrients it needs and normalize the dopamine pathways. Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle often goes against our physiological needs, making it challenging to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle. The constant availability of dopamine-inducing substances, such as food and technology, can make it even more difficult to resist these cravings.

    • Understanding the difference between pleasure and joyFocus on joy for internal fulfillment and better choices, recognize emotions and thoughts impact health, manage stress for overall wellbeing

      While we are naturally pleasure-seeking creatures, it's important to recognize the difference between pleasure and joy. Pleasure is an external, fleeting experience brought on by dopamine, while joy is an internal, long-lasting feeling of purpose, growth, and serotonin. By focusing on seeking joy rather than pleasure, we can make healthier choices and better cope with challenges. Our emotions and thought patterns play a significant role in our physiology and the actions we take. By being mindful of our thoughts and questioning their validity, we can make smart decisions that promote true self-care and overall wellbeing. Additionally, it's important to be aware that stress hormones like cortisol can switch on fat storage, making it crucial to manage stress and prioritize self-care.

    • Managing Stress for Optimal Thyroid FunctionManage stress with adaptogens, calming activities, meal planning, and routine to lower cortisol, improve metabolism, and encourage healthy choices.

      Cortisol, a stress hormone, significantly impacts thyroid function. When cortisol levels are high, the body produces more reverse T3, which slows down metabolism and encourages fat storage. To counteract this, it's essential to find ways to manage stress and reduce cortisol levels. This can be achieved through the use of adaptogens like ashwagandha and rhodiola, as well as practicing calming activities such as walking in the morning. Planning meals and setting up a structured daily routine can also help reduce emotional eating and make healthier food choices. Additionally, the forward motion of walking can calm the amygdala, reducing fear while heightening alertness. Overall, it's crucial to find balance in managing stress, cortisol levels, and daily routines for optimal health.

    • Understanding sugar's role in hormonesRecognizing sugar addiction as a result of biochemistry, not personal failure, can lead to self-acceptance and healthier food choices

      Understanding the role of sugar and its effect on hormones can help individuals make empowering alternatives to satisfy their cravings and create lasting change. Sugar addiction can lead to powerful biochemical forces compelling individuals to continue the behavior, causing shame and guilt. Recognizing this is not a personal failure but a result of biochemistry can lead to a turning point, allowing individuals to make friends with their bodies and embrace themselves. Awareness is the first step towards simple changes in food choices. The importance of this topic is underscored by a listener's message about the impact of anorexia on hormones and bone health, emphasizing the need for open discussions and seeking professional help.

    How To Support Your Body During Perimenopause and Menopause

    How To Support Your Body During Perimenopause and Menopause

    This episode is brought to you by Rupa Health, InsideTracker, and Wonderfeel


    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.

Her latest book is Adrenal Transformation Protocol: A 4-Week Plan to Release Stress Symptoms and Go from Surviving to Thriving.
