Menopause: A time to level up not fade out w/ Dr. Stacy Sims

287: Menopause: A time to level up not fade out w/ Dr. Stacy Sims

Let’s face it the years surrounding menopause can be rough. Stress is elevating, hormones are declining and our body is starting to do things we are struggling to understand.

As tempting as it may be, it is NOT time to fade into the background, it is time to level up.

Enter, my guest today Dr. Stacy Sims.

Stacy is a forward-thinking international exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist who aims to revolutionize exercise nutrition and performance, especially for women.

Her latest book, Next Level, breaks down the underlying causes of menopause and, more importantly, arms you with advice from the latest and greatest research on what to do about it. And she graciously shares some powerful takeaways from that book in this episode.

Dear midlife woman...

279: Dear midlife woman…

A large majority of my clients and Rumble & Rise members are women between the ages of 40-60.

And I absolutely adore working with this population because during these years a woman is often in the throes of managing the most stress while simultaneously enduring the decline of hormones that actually help her to manage stress.

It can be a very frustrating and disorienting time.

It can also be an incredibly liberating and powerful time.

In this episode of the Grace & Grit podcast, I share a love letter to the midlife woman who may be rumbling hard right now. If that’s you, take 10 and listen to this episode.

Episode 086: Natural Hormone Healing w/ Madeline MacKinnon

086: Natural Hormone Healing w/ Madeline MacKinnon

I have had several guests on the show to discuss the power hormones have in the health equation because honestly, I do not think this is a topic we can discuss enough. Hormones influence and govern everything about our physiology: weight fertility, mood, energy, sleep and sex drive…just to name a few things. And their disruption can cause havoc on our tissues, our systems and ultimately our sanity.

While there may be a time and place for pharmaceutical intervention to help balance extreme hormone challenges, there are a lot of ways to balance our hormones naturally, which are often overlooked.

So today, I have invited to the show, Madeline MacKinnon the founder of Natural Hormone Healing to give us some insight into the wild world of hormones and how to create a state of hormonal bliss.
