As a woman in her childbearing years transitions to perimenopause and eventually enters menopause, a host of physiological changes happen inside her body—starting with the natural decline in estrogen and progesterone, which can pose challenges to the brain and body later in life if not properly supported.
More and more women are becoming curious about better managing this phase of life. Often, their questions range from hormone replacement therapy to fasting, meal timing, protein intake, exercise, strength training, how to get quality sleep, and so much more.
Today on The Dhru Purohit Podcast, Dhru sits down with Cynthia Thurlow to answer all your questions regarding hormonal health and how middle-aged women can tailor their diet and lifestyle to feel empowered and set themselves up for optimal health.
Dhru delves into Cynthia’s personal life and asks her what she does to keep her hormones balanced, maintain her body composition, and prioritize self-care and sleep (which starts when she wakes up in the morning). They also discuss hot topics like drinking alcohol, when to take a caffeine break, progesterone therapy, and how to create an intermittent fasting practice that works best for you.
