Bloating is a symptom that for many women is hard to discern the cause: is it water retention? Digestive? Or new belly fat from shifting hormones? I ask about bloating on literally every call I have women women and they often don’t totally know how to answer it so I wanted to dedicate some time to this super common symptom to help you break it down in terms of where it’s coming from and various suggestions to deal with it depending on the root cause.

Did you know that 95% of women taking a prenatal are still nutrient deficient? The founders of Needed saw this as a big problem and I couldn’t agree more! But Needed quickly became a bigger solution to a bigger problem by providing more options for moms and moms to be. Women need so much support during the time from thinking about getting pregnant all the way to having little ones and so often they are left with options that don’t address their needs (prenatals that have nutrients in the wrong forms or that they can’t take due to nausea) or they are left with low energy, anxiety or even colds/flus while they are pregnant or nursing because there aren’t natural products that are considered safe during these times. Needed solved all of these problems as well as created a community of no-guilt, education and support for new moms and moms to be.

Recently, I had that experience we’re all looking for: the satisfaction of seeing that hard work we put in on ourselves show up in a very real way in my life. I have explained the 5 Different Stress Responses in an episode from spring 2023 and last week in spring of 2024 I saw my understanding of this really kick into action - and it was brilliant! I saw my traumatic stress response of fawning in full force play out before my eyes and because of knowing these various types of stress responses and what triggers them I was able to not go too far down that road, resolve the stress in my body and make a better choice with my stress response. A choice that left me more empowered, able to be more gentle on myself and move forward in a productive way - and you can learn this too!

Understanding these various stress responses is key in making cha+nge to how stress impacts us and this goes far beyond traditional ideas of “stress management” - these are stress skills. Skills that will actually change how you respond to and experience stress - and that helps all of your hormones!

NAD supplements are all the rage in the anti-aging and longevity community, but just how effective are they? As well, if you compare various products there are a variety of ingredients and you might be wondering which are the most effective. I wanted to invite Dr. Gregory Kelly, ND from Neurohacker Collective on the show to take a deep dive into how boosting NAD levels is helpful for us in healing and aging as well as to really look at these supplements and understand how ingredients like NMN, NR and vitamin B3 perform in these NAD boosting supplements. We covered how well these absorbed, when to consider dosing these nutrients, what to look for in your NAD boosting products and how to know if taking them translates to you feeling and aging better. It was a great discussion!

Neurohacker is a long time partner of the Dr. Brooke Show so of course I also wanted Dr. Kelly to take an in depth look at their NAD+ product (the one I take!) that he helped formulate so we covered this formula as well!

NAD levels start to decline by up to 65% between ages 30 and 70 and this can lead to more signs of aging, less energy and worse recovery. Qualia NAD+ is formulated to target the entire process our cells undergo to make, use and then recycle NAD+ for optimal results that you can see and feel. With so many NAD boosting products out there, what sets Qualia NAD+ apart is that it uses three different precursors to support the various ways our cells make NAD+ and its very holistic formula supports this production pathway from start to finish with enzyme cofactors as well as raw materials.

You may have heard lately that it’s not a “lower metabolism” that causes weight gain and more body fat around the middle during midlife. While this may be what research is showing us as not a mechanism, many of us have found our pants are indeed not fitting so great so what IS causing the weight gain? Is it hormone changes or slack habits? Is it something we need to take HRT to get on top of? What exactly will the popular fitness advice of eating enough protein and lifting weights really do for our mid-life bodies? I cover exactly what the shifts in hormones do to your motivation, mood and metabolism in this episode as well as the one thing NO ONE is talking about…and it’s not really solved by taking hormones or strength training. 

 

Tune in and please share this with a woman who needs this info!

Encore Episode! This is a dicey subject for sure and I’m certain it will have a lot of you rethinking your supplement regimen. Iodine is most often used to improve thyroid or breast health but it’s important to understand the whole story about how these recommendations came about and why more iodine can actually be bad for both. 

 

Iodine is an essential nutrient that we absolutely need for thyroid function as well as other systems in our bodies, HOWEVER, it’s a Golidlock’s nutrient if there ever was one. When you look at how our bodies manage iodine and what our actual need for this unique trace mineral is you can see that we need to be a bit more careful with higher doses of iodine. This episode explains exactly why we need enough and not too much (and of course what the doses are that is just enough for general health, thyroid, pregnancy, etc.), what research shows us in terms of the fall out of too much iodine (hint: oxidative stress, thyroid problems and a rise in autoimmunity) and when to consider lowering iodine intake to see if your thyroid and breast health improves. I also cover how to assess and test for iodine status and some real problems with the rationale used by high iodine advocates in the health space.
