My guest today is someone truly incredible in the health and functional medicine world! Dr. Anna Cabeca is the author of The Hormone Fix, a Triple Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist, and just an all-around awesome woman!
On the podcast today, Dr. Anna Cabeca is going to share with us her own personal journey and story that really shifted her mindset and acknowledgment that lifestyle plays a large role in not only our health but in healing our bodies at a very deep level. Today we get into the nuances of how we actually enable women to breeze through perimenopause and menopause so that we can truly harness this incredibly powerful phase of life.
Preparing for these hormonal transitions and managing them — even for those of us who are not in that phase of life yet — are critically important to understand; these are the foundational pieces that really enable our body to balance hormones on their own. And in this episode, we unpack all of these pieces, explore Dr. Cabeca’s Keto-Green system (that differs greatly from Keto!), and learn how we can begin incorporating these important changes into our lifestyle today!

“Though I could physically heal from the … trauma of reversing early menopause, the PTSD was still under the surface. … Women who had trauma … during … perimenopause, are vulnerable for … neurologic symptoms, endocrine symptoms … mood issues, [etc.]” — Dr. Anna Cabeca
““It takes more than hormones to fix hormones.” – Dr. Anna Cabeca
“As we enter this transition stage of menopause, we become less able to use glucose for fuel in the brain because it’s an estrogen-dependent process. So switching to ketones, at least periodically, really powers up our brain.” — Dr. Anna Cabeca
“…The best part of [the Keto-Green diet] … [is] the mental clarity and the sense of peace and the ability to manage my emotions.” — Dr. Anna Cabeca
“There’s a physiological component to [our health] and when we [give] control to that, everything falls into place. It really, really does.” — Dr. Anna Cabeca
“As individuals, we need to be empowered to take care of our own health. We need to be empowered versus relying on the powerful system and the insurance system.”
— Dr. Anna Cabeca

— Dr. Anna Cabeca
