Memorable Quotes:

“It’s not just what we eat–it’s what we think, it’s where we live, what we’re exposed to, food sensitivities, you name it. It can all affect your body’s physiology.” (13:58, Dr. Anna)

“I think biomedical progesterone post-menopause is like one of those essentials, for sure. It makes a big difference in the quality of our life, the quality of our sleep, the quality of our thinking, and our thoughts.” (16:30, Dr. Anna)

“I think as women, and especially in this time of life where possibly for the first time ever they may be considering a pause, probably don’t even know how to pause.” (21:23, Betty)

“So if we decide we don’t want to do something, we’re really clear. It’s not because we’re burned out and exhausted. We’re really clear if it’s not a hell yes, it’s a hell no.” (23:28, Dr. Anna)

“A lot of times we think kind of all or none, I have to either be perfect at it, or I’m not on it. And it really is. It’s small incremental changes and often maybe just one, and once we master one then we have the efficacy to then step into the next change.” (28:11, Betty)

“I want people to feel empowered, to be able to be present in your body and look forward and have that strength and resilience to handle anything that comes our way.” (33:53, Dr. Anna)
