Must-Do Tests To Optimize Your Health! | Empowering Midlife Wellness
26:21Today I'm sharing my experience visiting Composition ID in Houston, which offers two really important tests that can help improve your health and longevity. I've talked a lot about body composition (which we can measure in my office), but the most accurate way to measure it is with a DEXA scan. A DEXA scan for a body composition picks up more data than an in-office test, since it will not only measure your body fat percentage, but will also identify exactly where the body fat is located. Not all body fat is the same, and fat around the middle and particularly inside our abdominal cavity (visceral fat) is the most significant for causing metabolic health issues. DEXA also accurately measures your muscle mass and where that muscle is located, as well as bone density. Another important test is VO2 max which measures the amount of oxygen that you are able to use as fuel, and accurately assesses your cardiovascular fitness and establishes your personal target training heart rate zones. In well less than an hour you can obtain both of these really important metrics, which tell you where you're starting and allow you and your provider to set up a plan to move towards optimal health. As the saying goes, "what gets measured, gets managed!" Visit Composition ID in Houston: https://www.compositionid.com
The Emsella Chair Eliminates Urine Leakage Without Surgery! | Empowering Midlife Wellness
17:08Urine leakage is one of the more annoying and embarrassing things that can happen to us after childbirth, especially in midlife. Today I'm talking about the most common forms of urinary leakage, and especially focusing on nonsurgical ways to manage this difficult problem. I'll be introducing you to the Emsella chair, which is a fantastic option to strengthen pelvic floor muscles without the effort and exhaustion of doing Kegel exercises yourself. The Emsella chair electrically stimulates your pelvic floor muscles for 30 minutes- which is way more than any human could complete on their own -and over the course of six treatments we see up to 80% of mild stress urinary incontinence cases completely resolve or significantly improve. Having had this procedure myself, it allowed me to avoid having surgery, so I'm excited to share my story with you and also show you how the machine works!

41:32I get so many questions about the latest issues in midlife women's health, and today I compiled 10 of my favorite questions that have answers that might surprise you! From hormonal health, to interpreting lab values, to supplements, Alzheimer's prevention, lipid analysis and more ... this week's conversation covers some of the most important up-to-date science that will help us to live a long, healthy and vibrant second half of life.
The MOST Important Thing for Improving Longevity | Empowering Midlife Wellness
38:13Science is pretty clear about this one thing. To have a long, healthy life, the MOST important intervention is exercise, and specifically weight-bearing exercise. Today I have my dear friend, Kelley Workman, master personal trainer, and midlife woman herself back with me. As many of you know, Kelley is my personal trainer and has improved my health dramatically with some very simple lifestyle changes that she will discuss today. Not only does exercise improve things that might sound obvious like osteoporosis, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes; but we are now learning that exercise is also very important in decreasing the risk of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases, as well as many cancers. By maintaining and building muscle mass, as well as protecting our cardiovascular system, we simply get fewer diseases and live longer. Kelley will also explain the importance of eating enough protein in order to support all muscles and how small changes in your daily nutrition plan can make a dramatic difference to not only how you feel now- but to long and how well you will live in the later decades of life. Kelley is also a co-facilitator at our upcoming retreat in Costa Rica in November!
