The Debbie Nigro Show

Let’s just say if I was building or renovating a pool I’d call Vinnie Groppa. And for the record yes, stars do call him, but so do very regular people who still get the same star treatment!  Humble guy that Vinnie. Great sense of humor. Really nice human and super creative pool and backyard design visionary. I wanted to give Vinnie his own star treatment, so I invited him into the studio to tell the great entrepreneurial story of his family’s 50-year-old pool business Gunite Pools of Westchester. It’s a good one. And a story that's entering a new chapter... 'expansion'. ...

If You Don't Know About Eugene Ruffolo I'm Hoping You Willl Now.  He's not just any talent.  Eugene is a prolific and deeply personal songwriter.  The world could use more of him. His music calms people down. A mutual friend who went to school with him in NY back when, had no clue about his talent until a zoom decades later during Covid. He then became addicted to his music and kept insisting I needed to listen. So, I did. I swear I could feel his music in my veins. I was taken aback by the beauty of his vocal gift and the genius of his songwriting. As good as any famous musical...

We all have horrific things that happen to us emotionally and financially that make us think, how the hell am I ever getting out of this? Often you don't even know where to begin.   Sometimes just listening to someone else’s story lends a clue. Especially when it’s a real-life lesson in resilience and survival. This story I’m about to share is very powerful. Because it’s about the power of believing in...

 TJ Hills, the renowned author of "Sex, Drugs, Babies and Breast Cancer’.  joined me in the studio for a lively and very enlightening conversation to delve into the pivotal topic of estrogen, genetic testing, and its profound impact on women's health.

 

She’s passionate about educating women about estrogen exposures and genetic nutritional tools in cancer prevention. Her message is universal as cancer touches the lives of many.

 

Sharing Wisdom from Her Own Personal Experiences

 

TJ shared her journey from a bustling Wall Street career to confronting breast cancer, highlighting the tendency to prioritize everything over personal health. Something we both know women in general typically do.

 

But TJ stressed the need for women to cut the nonsense and prioritize their own health over ‘other things to do first’, as neglecting it can have profound consequences.

 

Her Insights on Estrogen and Genetic Testing

 

TJ has become consumed with her mission to share her knowledge about the significance of understanding estrogen metabolism genes and their impact on women’s health decisions.

 

She explained the essence of genetic testing, which focuses on how the body processes estrogen rather than simply measuring estrogen levels.

 

Having this knowledge she says, has everything to do with very practical scenarios, like decisions women make about birth control pills or bioidentical hormones which are influenced by genetic predispositions.

 

Founder, Better Estrogen Health Foundation

 

TJ's Foundation offers free estrogen nutrition toolkits and nutritional consultations, aiming at empowering women to make informed decisions about their health.

 

With advancements in technology and artificial intelligence, access to genetic information for disease prevention is becoming more feasible.

 

TJ is urging women to take proactive measures and so they can make informed choices.

 

Through education, awareness, and accessible resources, she says, the journey towards healthier living becomes not only feasible but imperative.

 

Meet TJ Hills and get educated in this podcast of our live conversation on The Debbie Nigro Show.
