    301. Menopause & The Brain: New Breakthroughs in Women’s Health with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

    Women's brain health remains one of the most under researched, underdiagnosed, and undertreated fields of medicine – and someone needs to fix it. Enter today’s brilliant guest, Dr. Lisa Mosconi. She is the director of the Women's Brain Initiative at the Alzheimer's Prevention Program at Weill Cornell Medicine, New York Presbyterian Hospital.

    In this conversation, we explore menopause's effect on the body, brain, and hormones. Dr. Mosconi expertly clarifies what menopause is and isn't with a strong focus on the impact of menopause on brain health, cognitive health, and mental health. Dr. Mosconi walks us through the map of our reproductive health from pre to post menopause, highlighting hallmark signs and symptoms of transitions from each phase to the next.

    She shares why the old clinical ways of looking at menopause aren’t effective, and introduces new science and technology that allows women to have more knowledge around how menopause affects the brain. Dr. Mosconi explains the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy, surgical menopause and also provides non-hormonal, lifestyle advice for managing the symptoms of menopause.

    It is my dream for everyone to be as healthy as possible, equipped with the knowledge necessary to make empowered, informed decisions about living their best lives. I'm deeply grateful to Dr. Lisa Mosconi for generously sharing her expertise with us, enabling women to navigate menopause with ease and understanding.

    In 2005, the New England Journal of Medicine predicted that, for the first time in history, our kids are expected to have shorter lifespans than us – their parents. To address this startling statistic and figure out how to help our kids be more happy and healthy, we're joined by Dr. Elisa Song, a Stanford, NYU, and UCSF-trained integrative pediatrician and pediatric functional medicine expert.

    Also a mother of two thriving children, Dr. Song has dedicated her career to helping parents and practitioners bridge the gap between conventional and holistic pediatrics with an evidence-based, pediatrician-backed, parent-approved approach.

    Acknowledging the rise in mental health issues and chronic illnesses in the younger generation, we tackle the tough conversation around how to help our kids make better food choices and manage stress to support their gut health and overall wellbeing. From dissecting the impact of diet choices to connecting the dots between stress and gut health, Dr. Song offers research-backed practical strategies for nurturing resilience in children and encouraging informed food choices.

    Through empowering discussions on nutrition education, stress management techniques, and navigating the influence of the food industry, this episode will give parents a guide to teaching their children tools for living their most healthful and happy lives.

    If you're a parent who wants to know that you're doing everything you can to help your kids be well and stay well, look no further. Dr. Song has you covered with her practical, proven steps to raising resilient kids one microbiome at a time. For more information and support on this topic, make sure to preorder Dr. Song’s new book, Healthy Kids, Happy Kids.

    292. Empowering Parents with Natural Remedies for Sick Kids with Dr. Elana Roumell #WellnessWednesdays

    As moms, we want to do everything we can to help our kids prevent sickness and feel better faster, which is why I'm thrilled to welcome a very special guest today, Dr. Elana Roumell, a renowned pediatric naturopathic doctor, mother of three, and the brains behind the innovative Med School for Moms.

    Dr. Roumell not only co-hosts the popular Doctor Mom Podcast, but she's also the founder of Nourish Medical Center in San Diego, California. Her Doctor Mom Membership program helps moms feel calm, competent, and confident when their kid gets sick, and ultimately helps parents feel empowered with their family's healthcare decisions.

    In today's episode, we delve deep into the world of children's health, exploring holistic and homeopathic remedies. Dr. Roumell shares her expert knowledge on treating common childhood conditions, like ear infections, with natural methods by helping parents understand their causes.

    We discuss the different types of natural medicine, their roles, and easy home hacks – particularly in managing fevers and colds without traditional medication.

    A topic that has been a source of anxiety for me and many moms, especially in states with mandates, is vaccines. Dr. Roumell provides incredibly helpful insights into vaccine education, including delayed schedules and strategies to prevent adverse reactions.

    She also emphasizes the importance of informed dietary choices during illness, particularly avoiding sugar and dairy, and even shares her top recommendations for pediatric supplements to enhance immune response and gut health.

    I'm incredibly grateful to Dr. Roumell for sharing her expertise and for her unwavering advocacy in the realm of pediatric healthcare. Her dedication to empowering parents is truly inspiring. If you're eager to learn more and feel empowered in your role as a parent, I highly encourage you to explore Dr. Roumell's course.

    291. Get the Gut Science: How Healing Your Gut Can Improve Your Physical (and Mental!) Health with Dr. Steven Gundry #WellnessWednesdays

    It’s time for a gut check! I’m honored to welcome Dr. Steven Gundry, one of the world’s top cardiothoracic surgeons and a pioneer in the nutrition space. He hosts the top-rated health show, The Dr. Gundry Podcast, and is the founder and director of the International Heart & Lung Institute and The Center For Restorative Medicine.

    He is also the New York Times bestselling author of The Plant Paradox, and he recently released his latest book, Gut Check: Unleash The Power Of Your Microbiome To Reverse Disease and Transform Your Mental, Physical, and Emotional Health.

    Today, we’re talking all about the gut – the root of so many health outcomes. Dr. Gundry explains what happens in the gut doesn’t stay in the gut, revealing how the gut microbiome impacts our brain health, reproductive health, and more.

    But this one’s full of solutions, too. Dr. Gundry breaks down the markers of leaky gut syndrome, and how he treats it, inspiring us with the life-changing results his patients have experienced.

    He offers his top tips for individuals and families to heal their guts. Plus, we get into what everyone is missing about probiotics. This is a fascinating episode for anyone who’s ever experienced stomach issues, or simply wants to optimize their overall health, starting with their gut.
