Maggie Sarachek and Abbe Greenfield are besties and have been for decades. They met as undergraduates at U Penn in the 1980s. Neither thought of themselves as particularly anxious. Sure they had bad stomachs, but didn’t most students on the Penn meal plan?

They also worried a lot, but we figure they owed that to our Jewish parents. What they didn't know then was that they were both experiencing the beginnings of a lifelong strug...

Thousands of (mostly) women have gone to a doc because they don't feel like themselves only to leave frustrated and sick to death of hearing, "This is what happens at your age", or "It's all in your head, nothing's wrong."

They—maybe you—have said things like:

I'm gaining weight, I'm cold all the time, my hair is getting thin, my sleep is awful, I'm in a fog. To be fair to the docs who hear the...

The answer is yes. 

#Bummer but also, you might be saying "I knew these extra pounds weren't all my fault."

Small comfort, but once you know why it happens, you can prepare yourself or reverse a trend if you are already experiencing the weight gain that comes with the menopause transition years.

After seeing heart surgery--in person, standing at the head of the patient beside the Anesthesiologist--my understanding of how our lifestyle habits affect that little beast of a muscle expanded by lots.

The surgeon held the heart in his hand. (Real hearts look nothing like those things you see on medical dramas btw.) He pointed out the fat that had accumulated over years of poor dietary choices and a sedentary lifestyle. The heart ...

This is my guest, Dr. Susan Lovelle, in a nutshell, 

“I love the challenge of working with busy, successful women who are merely surviving on caffeine, wine, and willpower. Those who diet and exercise but can't lose weight, who are exhausted but can't sleep, and are consumed by doing everything for everyone else...except themselves.”

You already know why I’d want her on the show—too many of us are living this way. And it’s no...

  •             Is coloring our hair really all that bad for us?
  •             How do we nourish what we’ve got so it looks fabulous?

      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.
