Menopause: What to Know, What to Ask & What to Do – Mary Claire Haver, M.D. : 1015
Manage episode 353647808 series 3007702
IN THIS EPISODE OF THE HUMAN UPGRADE™… board-certified OB/GYN and “menopause warrior” Mary Claire Haver, M.D., joins the show to give women a toolkit to manage what comes before, during and after menopause.
- She explains the science of women’s hormones, physiology and brain during the menopausal transition.
- She breaks down the studies, risks, and age timing of Hormone Replacement Therapy.
- She gives you information you can use to both help yourself and ask for help from medical professionals.
- She arms you with actions that work based on what is happening to your biology and brain chemistry during the years leading up to and after menopause.
“When I talk about the menopausal toolkit, HRT is just one small part of what I counsel patients about,” Dr. Haver says. “We talk about nutrition, we talk about exercise, we talk about stress reduction, we talk about sleep, we talk about possible other pharmaceuticals. And of course, we talk about supplementation. It's like a tackle box and everything is important.”
Although Dr. Haver’s career included taking care of women at all life stages, she didn’t expect to experience the shocks of her own menopause. So, she went looking for answers and took action along the way. She changed the entire focus of her medical practice to menopause. She also channeled the power of social media to provide menopause education and reaches more than 2 million on her TikTok channel alone.
Her new book, “The Galveston Diet: The Doctor-Developed, Patient-Proven Plan to Burn Fat and Tame Your Hormonal Symptoms," lays out three specific action areas: intermittent fasting, anti-inflammatory nutrition, and fuel refocus.
Menopause is having a moment. (As Lizzo would say, “It’s About Damn Time.”) From investor-backed start-ups in a $6B market to celebrity-led wellness brands to demands for more science—women, and women medical professionals, are changing mid-life menopause dynamics.
