We're telling our truth in this episode and it wasn't easy! We're joined by Jowita Bydlawska, author of "Drunk Mom" to talk about women and alcohol. How do current 'mom memes' encourage us to drink and do we realize the damage we're doing to our bodies and brains? 

The added downside of booze is that it adds nothing but grief to our menopause symptoms - Sleep, weight and health! 

So what's the an...

When you’re having a hot flash, memory loss or sleepless nights does it ever feel like no one is listening? You’re not alone. And partly because in the past, no one WAS listening.

That might be because treating hormones can feel dangerous to doctors. Many don't have a lot of training in this area.  Lack of menopausal care is a huge disservice to women but let’s shed a little light as to why that might be.

We’re talking to Dr. S...

Season 4 of the She2.0 podcast has sprung!  In the past 3 seasons we were really focused on symptoms, treatments, and options and while we’ll continue to stay on top of that, we are also going to start talking more about critical issues such as accessibility and lack of awareness and education have been huge issues for women going through this critical stage.  

In our upcoming season, we’re starting to work towards helping women un...

Menopause can be a challenging time for most women but we’re happy to see more and more options than ever when it comes to managing our health and symptoms. From hormones to herbs, vitamins, and other holistic options, we are finally being given solutions.

Prior to a few years ago, the treatment of menopause was very medical based. Our doctors were happy to write us a script for hormones, antidepressants, and sedatives. Only in the...

How many times have we walked into our doctor’s appointment only to forget what we wanted to ask? Heck, if you’re in menopause, how many times have you walked into your own damn kitchen and forgotten what you were there for? Memory aside, women must take their health into their own hands when it comes to coping and dealing with peri/menopause. Why? Because we know first-hand that what you don’t know can have a very negative impact ...

As we hit the big 4-0, we start to notice subtle changes to our bodies, our skin, and our faces. Our lines and skin tone don’t lie – even if we do!  Whether we’re raging against aging or choosing to ‘age gracefully’ we must admit, age is more than just a number to us.

We’ve tried treatments, facials and lotions & potions but it really comes down to facial structure to really support our aging skin. Andrea Fairborn – R.H.N, has ...

When we talk about menopause, we tend to focus on the symptoms. The things that physically impact us and can alter our day-to-day experience. However, what we don’t tend to discuss is one of the less acknowledged ‘side effect’ of menopause – grief. Like any other loss, we experience grief over the loss of our past selves, our ability to produce both children and collagen! We often give a nod to depression and anxiety that can come ...

Is Hormone Replacement Treatment HRT safe? Safe for everyone? Safe for you? It’s a question many of us have asked ourselves and our doctors for years but have you ever felt confident with the answer? Back in 2002 the publication of a landmark study warned of the potential negative side-effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The report scared the hell out of women everywhere with the promise of serious health risks. And 19 ye...

Some topics that are really close to our heart and Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of them. Not just because of the relief it can offer women going through peri/menopause but because of its approach to women and the change in general. It is far more optimistic, embracing, and unapologetic than our North American perspective and we find that hopeful and reassuring.

Hey Samual Jackson! We have no problem going to sleep. It's staying asleep that we struggle with. In fact, sleep is one of the most common problems women experience with perimenopause. A lack of sleep triggers a series of other issues like stress, anxiety, fatigue amongst other things. How's a gal supposed to function? 

We figure helping you sleep is a great way to kick of Season 3 of the podcast.

In this episode we’re talk...

When we talk about menopause, estrogen always seems to steal the limelight. We know that our bodies aren't producing as much of it and we know the signs. But is estrogen taking all the credit? In this episode, Dr. Kristy Prouse, MD, OB/GYN and Chief Medical Officer of The Institute of Hormonal Health joins us to talk about what's really keeping us up at night!

One of the most common symptoms of menopause is memory loss. We can't find our keys, remember what we were just going to say, forget the word to describe that thingamajiggy we need. It starts off slowly but as we start to lose our nouns, we start to really worry that we might be headed for disaster.

Recently in the news we'd read that there has been talk about a connection between menopause and Alzheimer's Disease. Natu...

You may have heard that ‘shrooms’ (psilocybin) are making a comeback. The use of psychedelics is being touted as helpful for depression, anxiety, smoking cessation, PTSD and many other conditions.  They’re also a great support for some of our menopause symptoms. We’ve tried a daily dose and can attest to its calming properties and its ability to help us focus!

    Sympathy Pains

    Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
