Eating to Support Your Hormones and Blood Sugar with Dr. Mariza Snyder

That’s the sound of the first-period bell – time to get to class with today’s indepth science-packed episode with Dr. Mariza Snyder. Dr. Snyder is a functional practitioner, a woman's health expert, and the author of eight books. Her latest; The Essential Oils Menopause Solution: Alleviate Your Symptoms and Reclaim Your Energy, Sleep, Sex Drive, and Metabolism; focuses on tangible advice for women in perimenopause and in menopause.

Today's episode goes through ways to ease your way into these transitions later in life, defines the three stages of menopause (pre-menopause, peri menopause, and menopause), and reveals how we can build a custom diet – as determined by our hormones – to support our overall wellness.

She also leaves listeners with three very basic changes that can work wonders for your health and put some structure into your daily routine:

  1. Walk (especially after meals)

  2. Carve out a bit of circadian fasting (dinner by 6pm, and no breakfast till 10am)

  3. Ditch the carb-heavy breakfast foods (go for protein-rich, low-sugar)

This one is as specific as it is expansive, as we also touch on her early life mitochondrial dysfunction and how she overcame the issues it caused in her body, managing a healthy blood-sugar balance, how to live with vitality and abundance in your day-to-day, and so much more.
