The Flipping 50 Show

Oxidative stress is in part an effect of aging and can be an effect of poor lifestyle, even overtraining or over-exercise. In this episode I talk with a true science geek … and we break it down.  00:00 In this episode, we talk about how to encourage natural hair growth, reduce gray hair, boost libido and reduce fine lines around the eyes and mouth.  Now my science guy didn’t lead with that, so you’ll have to listen to the end when we get to the juicy stuff but this is definitely an episode that will help you expand your tools for aging optimally.  Need to start, restart,...

The Flipping 50 Show

Two listener questions beg the answer to the best exercise schedule at midlife. So, in this episode, I’ll share the answer to both and reflect on the science of frequency and intensity of the variables leading to fitness for women in midlife. To do that I’ll define it for you in case you’re wondering just what is that? The questions:   00:00 03:48 What is the best exercise schedule for midlife women?   Would working upper body 30 - 45 mins every 96 hours, and lower 30 - 45 mins every 96 hours, be ok since I'm getting at least 72 hours to rest between muscle groups?...

The Flipping 50 Show

One of the hardest lessons for women to learn is that you have to eat for strength training to work.

Would you define yours as a healthy lifestyle? It’s one of those things that can be illusive. That is, the finish line keeps moving away from you like your own handheld out in front of you would. 00:00 Before we open I invite you to come up with an answer to this… You’ve been tasked with creating the Wikipedia definition of “healthy lifestyle.” What do you write?  I’m thinking you better push pause.

How to Harness the Power of Women’s Hormones

The more you learn about women's hormones the more you know there is to know. This is an exciting time. As I like to say there's never be a more exciting time to be flipping 50. This is the first in a few episodes this month addressing women's hormones and perhaps flipping your thoughts on your future. 

Explore your choices, re-examine your current options, and combine lifestyle habits for the optimal aging you want, need, and deserve. 

I brought on one of the top women's hormone doctors and renowned speakers to share her insights with you. 

My Guest:

A committed trailblazer, Felice L. Gersh, M.D., works in integrative and holistic medicine, creating new paradigms in women's healthcare. 

Dr. Gersh is a renowned international speaker on topics of women's health, exercise, nutrition, fasting, and essential oils. She has a special passion for educating all on the complexities of women’s metabolic and hormonal health throughout their life spans.

She was recognized for her excellence as an attending surgeon at USC Keck School of Medicine by the OB/GYN Department, and was elected into the prestigious medical honor society, Alpha Omega Alpha. She is the Medical Director for the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, where she leads her team of dedicated holistic practitioners.

I took advantage of this opportunity to ask Dr Gersh about women's hormones research, her advice for staying healthy as you age, and her involvement in the Women's Hormone Network. 

Questions we answered on this episode:

  • How can hormones help women to stay well after menopause?
  • What other options can women take to stay healthy?
  • As for the upcoming hormone conference and how it can be beneficial for all women and doctors to attend?
  • Can you tell us about your research with the Women’s Hormone Network?
