The Flipping 50 Show

Like many things worth it, it wasn’t easy when the Flipping 50 show started. If you’re new or you’ve been here a minute but you never heard this story, this is how it all started.  Tears roll down my face as I take down years of memories. Since I can remember I wanted dozens of frames full of memories hanging on my walls and lining bookshelves. My cell phone rings and I see it’s my realtor, what perfect timing. It was she who said a house sells better when a buyer can imagine themselves in the space and the seller’s personal items are removed.  I should have been putting...

In midlife sex is not over! Sexual health expert, Dr Lyndsey Harper joins me in this episode. The questions that are top of mind even if not tip of tongue are what we’re tackling today.  Here’s how I know. In opening applications for the Flipping 50 TV shows the questions about libido were so prevalent that I gave in and episode 3 was about how to modify exercise to help, or at the least not sabotage your libido.  We have a little library of episodes for you if sexual health questions are top of mind for you too and we’ll link to those in the show notes.  My...

Want the real secrets to longevity so you can love it not just last it? This is it. My guest has a voice so buttery you’ll find so easy to listen to and so excited that you’re going to get excited too. You’ll hear how he fell into longevity science. He shares a wealth of resources (books) about longevity and what it means today.  The real secrets to longevity are less secrets and far more science. We know so much that we don’t put to use yet. We can do so much better if we want to. If you’re ready to take a look, here’s how.  My Guest:   Published...

If you have a rotator cuff injury or any injury for that matter at the time you’re also feeling like you’re constantly faced with figuring out your changing body’s needs, this is for you. We unpack the unknowing and waiting. What can you do when mobility or ability is limited? How do you create a plan?  We discussed blood flow restriction bands, water exercise and options to keep you in alignment. With any injury it’s common and a risk to begin compensating for the injury. There is always something that you can do. When it’s not exercise or movement, it can be a focus on...

In this episode discussing the midlife exercise rx I host Dr Kathleen Jordan as we discuss from a Medical Exercise Specialist and a physician the mash up of menopause symptoms and exercise solutions to mitigate and amplify good health now and for decades ahead.  In case you’re curious, I have a couple stats.  Nearly 50% of medical schools offer any training in exercise physiology. And 0% of these require it. At least 80% of physicians don’t feel comfortable recommending exercise.   When a doctor recommends exercise they’re often helping you get moving at all....

Fat Burning Exercise Boost or Not? The Downside of Coffee  show art Fat Burning Exercise Boost or Not? The Downside of Coffee

The Flipping 50 Show

The downside of coffee for many is the gut devastation. For others, if we’re talking caffeinated, not decaf, it’s the jitters. Some women rely on it for pooping. (That’s not good by the way. We may want to restore your factory settings, because you never needed this as a child, right?)  Your DNA may determine how well you metabolize caffeine but so can presence of other stressors, whether you have eaten or not, and medications.  Caffeine may temporarily raise metabolism, boost workout intensity and fat burning. But for those of us most likely to send up a cheer, it...

It’s time to stop holding back and start sharing your crazy unique gifts. But it’s hard, right? What will people think? How do you put  yourself out there at a time when very possibly the myriad of changes in your life shake your confidence?  It’s always my hope that the strength you gain from lifting weights is far deeper than muscle. It’s confidence, it’s inner strength, it’s having a voice and strength to walk away when needed.  This episode is unique and I can’t wait for you to listen to this intelligent gifted guest who’s interviewing experts to reveal and...

The Flipping 50 Show

Whether it is the beginning of the year or a new season or you’re listening later to this episode, cleanses and detoxes are prevalent topics. Do you need a detox? I may have answered that very differently 10 years ago. This episode follows two recent episodes on detox and answers some of the questions from our community about what it is why it might be needed and it’s not what you think.   But once you know something you can’t go back. In the last two years, I’ve done 3 liver detoxes. I have a recent episode on biohacking, and admit I have disliked the word hacking forever....

Every once in a while inspiring stories come across my desk and I’m so excited to share this episode. Author, Lauren Hurst - who calls herself not an author - wrote a book about older athletes sharing their path and performance.. Some of which will blow you away.  I’ll link in this episode to a previous episode with the hosts of the Huntington World Games in St George Utah. We’ve had some amazing examples of athleticism in our lifetime. Yet, too little. We hear of 103 year old runners because there are so few. Yet, we don’t think we’ll be doing that at 103. Many 52 year olds...

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 has received numerous awards, including being named Physician of Excellence in Orange County 12 years in a row, a Super Doctor of Southern California multiple times, and a TopDoc. 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?
  • You’re speaking at a conference just around the corner. Can you share some details about your sessions?
    • Hormones and Diet PCOS
