Questions We Answer in This Episode:

  • As time passes, many women think – may be even led to believe by influencer memes – that forgetfulness, mood swings, and loss of desire are just a normal part of the aging process. What do you have to say about that?
  • Are there elements that make it worse? And can we make it better?
  • How key is cortisol for you in your experience treating patients with menopause symptoms? 
  • What key stressors have you seen most impact cortisol?
  • If we take HRT off the table so we’re inclusive of every woman listening… How can listeners regulate hormones with diet and lifestyle and lead a healthy, vibrant and sexually active life at ANY age?

More Tips for Walking Effectiveness and Comfort

How to prevent tightness in hip/low back? What would cause lower back pain while walking?
Lower back pain can be prevented with improvements in walking posture. Imagine a tall posture, leaning forward from the ankles. The biggest mistake is made leaning from the waist.
Your fascia – the layer of ligamentous tissue covering your muscles – essentially stiffens. Change the gait or stop and stretch periodically.
Find warmups at my Youtube channel.

Long strides or short?
Yes! Based on the previous response, you want to mix it up.

Best posture while walking up a hill? Saving our knees?
I’m not sure these are the same question or separate, so I may misinterpret in my response. You maintain the same forward angle from the ankle as when on a flat. Avoid bending forward from the waist or the neck.

Best walking routine to burn the most fat in a shorter period of time?
This one completely depends! If you want to burn fat you have to be in an optimal cortisol and insulin dance. I could tell you a routine that for someone would support fat burning but for you might encourage fat storage or adrenal fatigue.

For Osteoporosis – [This question is not quite clear but doing my best]
Walk, but don’t only walk. We are mobile during the day so more of the same load doesn’t overload bone enough to add more stimulus.
