From gray hair to menopause, Jackie and Dr. Suzanne Gilberg Lenz talk choices that can help you thrive in midlife and beyond.    Plus, your common questions answered:   What exactly is peri-menopause? How do you know menopause is about to happen? What kinds of changes can you expect? What kind of impact will it have on your sense of well being?     About Dr. Suzanne Gilberg Lenz   I’m a hard-core science nerd with a deep respect for the holistic approach to health and life. Believe it or not, there is a science to self-care!   After earning my medical degree at Southern California School of Medicine and completing my residency at Cedar-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California, I wanted to expand my knowledge beyond conventional medicine.   In 2010 I graduated from California College of Ayurveda as a Clinical Ayurvedic Specialist, which has truly expanded and informed my practice of medicine. Being able to integrate this incredible ancient healing tradition has been a game changer and allowed me to go deeper into the study of health and healing.   As more “natural” solutions, medicines, and technologies emerge in the global marketplace, I find myself referring back to Ayurveda- the original lifestyle medicine, which incorporates the mind, body, and spirit.   Get your ticket to Dr. Suzanne's Menopause Bootcamp HERE!

The NO-vember Challenge

Do you feel like you’re spreading yourself too thin? Are you feeling exhausted and depleted because you’re constantly saying yes, even when you don’t want to? You’re not alone. Women everywhere, including in the Forty Thrive community, share how fatigued, stressed out and overworked they often feel.  But what if we decided -- together -- for this month of November only, to say NO when we’re asked to add another thing to our never-ending to-do list? In this week’s episode, Jackie talks with Christine Sarno, a business coach, advertising and sales powerhouse and Jackie’s BFF. Together they throw down the "NO-vember Challenge," a 30-day challenge to say NO to the things that don't serve you, your goals and your inner peace. In this episode, Jackie and Christine discuss: [5:05] Why women are often people pleasers [8:30] Christine’s message to women feeling victimized by their circumstances [9:06] Discussion on Diann Wingert's insight into the menopausal brain [11:08] Christine’s parent influence [12:00] Christine talks about being her mom’s advocate  [13:35] What can you say “NO to this month?

I strive to support and advise clients with authenticity, encouragement, and a dollop of tough love.  I’ve got your back and will tell you what you need to hear. You deserve honesty.

Unless you’re living under a rock, you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. But before you run out and buy that pink kitchen utensil or a bottle of (potentially cancer-causing) pink alcohol… take a listen to this episode.   Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz and I talk the surprising truth behind Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We answer:   • Where does your money actually go? • Which organizations truly help women? • What can you do to make a real impact this month.   Plus, Dr Suzanne shares her own experience being diagnosed with breast cancer 6 years ago — even after doing “everything right.”   7 Ways to Create Impact in October What are some of the ways you can really make an impact to prevent and support?    1. Understand your own breasts (self breast exams each month are a must) 2. Make sure you’re donating time, money and efforts to an organization where you understand the goal 3. Be mindful of what you’re consuming; food, drink, air, chemicals, media. What we put into our brains and hearts is as important as what we put into our bodies.  4. Decrease stress and/or engage stress-relieving activities like yoga and meditation. (Moving your body is key) 5. Support Planned Parenthood or another organization that provides care for women who may otherwise not be able to afford it.  6. Support someone in your community with meals. You can use an app like MealTrain to organize meals in your community.  7. Advocate for yourself! You are the most important person when it comes to healthcare.    Resources   Dr. Susan Love   Sharsheret   Episode 21: Will I even make it to 40?

Today is the first in our Healthy You series, four episodes in October to help you feel your best through the transitions and changes that can happen in life over 40 and beyond. We’re just about 90 days out from the new year. Let’s not move feeling good to the back burner and leave it for 2020. Now is the time. In this episode, we talk with Dr. Liz Lyster about all things hormones.  So you think you understand the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy, huh? Yup, so did I. Until I met Dr. Liz Lyster. Dr. Liz shares her years of expertise in treating many women (and men) through hormonal changes, including menopause and peri-menopause. Trust me when I say, I didn't know what I didn't know about the risks and benefits of hormone replacement therapy. This was a hugely enlightening conversation for me and I'm confident it can help you too.  Dr. Liz answers: How do I know if I'm in menopause? What is happening to my body? How long does peri-menopause last? How long can I take hormone replacement? Can hormone replacement therapy cause cancer?   About Dr. Liz Dr. Liz Lyster is an OB/GYN medical doctor, best-selling author and speaker, and an expert in peri-menopause and menopause. In her private practice in the San Francisco Bay area, she helps women and men in midlife and beyond lose weight, have more energy, increase their motivation and drive, and generally feel great. She graduated from Cornell University, went to medical school at UC Irvine, and got her Masters degree at UCLA in Community Health Education. Dr. Liz walks her own talk – when she turned 50 a few years ago, she celebrated by climbing to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa. Dr. Liz has two young adult sons, and enjoys hiking and Argentine tango with her husband. Dr. Liz's Books:  Go for Great!

A Quick 3-Minute Reminder

A Quick 3-Minute Reminder

2019-08-2900:02:50

Each week, I work extremely hard to connect women over 40 with experts and resources to help enhance your life, provide practical tools and maybe inspire and motivate you to create the best freaking life ever. It's also important to me that I share my own personal experiences and struggles, because I know if I'm struggling with it, maybe you are too. This week, I had an amazing interview scheduled to share with you. And I will -- soon. But I've decided to live by example and make a decision that I desperately need, and may actually be a lesson you need to hear.  I'd love to hear from you. Is there something in your life you need to say "not today" to?
