After the age of forty, we have to change our lifestyle to meet our declining hormones. Things that we got away with in our thirties don’t work for us anymore.
Dr. Anna Cabeca is committed to supporting women so that they can thrive physically, emotionally, sexually, and even spiritually as they go through the natural and inevitable life shift of menopause.
Dr. Anna Cabeca has spent years developing and perfecting a complete suite of life-changing products and programs. Everything Dr. Anna develops is part of her daily routine and based on exhaustive research and the never-ending quest to find solutions that help women reclaim their vibrancy, sexuality, health, and happiness.
In this podcast, we cover:
There are ways we can THRIVE through menopause. It takes more than hormones to fix your hormones.
Did you know we have a hormonal hierarchy?
The master hormone is oxytocin – it is secreted when we laugh, play, and do things that we love. Increasing oxytocin will regulate cortisol. Having an orgasm is one of the best ways to increase oxytocin. Pleasure!! Part of Dr. Anna’s checklist is having an oxytocin checklist each day. What are you doing to improve joy every day?
As estrogen declines, we become more insulin resistant. We help our insulin resistance by living a keto lifestyle. The more insulin sensitive we become, the better quality of health we have. Anything that creates inflammation is going to develop wrinkles. We have to reverse our insulin resistance! It doesn’t matter how old you are; we can see an improvement to your sensitivity – it’s powerful.
Why do women get more Alzheimer’s than men?
The brain will use glucose or ketones. Using ketones in the brain is not hormone-dependent. Shifting to ketones will give us clarity. Dr. Anna wouldn’t have been able to write her book without a keto lifestyle. Using ketones instead of glucose will keep you mentally alert.
Take one day off a week.
God intended us to rest one day a week. We need to refill our tanks with rest. How do we incorporate this into every aspect of our life? Maybe you can bring a centering and grounding practice into your daily routine. It can even be something as simple as having a ten-minute puppy break. Especially at menopause, having a quality of life is better than any pill we can take.
If you want to balance your hormones, you need to calm yourself down and get your stressful life at bay. It is powerful when you realize that rest is necessary. Guess what happens when we rest? All the anxiety and those sleepless nights will go away.
Think of something that makes you smile. Visualize it. Now, take some deep belly breaths. Feel joy. This is an excellent resetting tool.
As we get older, we have to empower or physiology even more. Our spirit does not age. We need to age optimally. After menopause, we face chronic debilitating diseases – they are all related to insulin resistance. We need to help our insulin resistance by living a keto lifestyle.
If Dr. Anna had one message for the world is would be that self-love is medicine.
