“I am enjoying menopause, I feel better than I ever have. And there are just so many women that are suffering needlessly because their doctors aren’t giving them the answers.” (8:58)
“We want to blame everything on menopause, but the truth is that most of the symptoms you are having at menopause are because of these root causes that you weren’t aware of because your doctor doesn’t know to address them.” (16:54)
“You need to become empowered with the knowledge and understand all of this yourself. You cannot abdicate control of your health to the medical professionals because they don’t know what they don’t know, and there is so much that they don’t know, that what they don’t help you with can hurt you.” (28:28)
“Our world being a better place requires menopausal women to feel fabulous, so they can each bring their own unique gift.” (29:05)
“My simplistic philosophy is, bad stuff out, good stuff in, balance everything. That is the basic overview.” (44:50)
“Your body talks to you in symptoms, so learning how to decipher the symptoms with somebody who is skilled at decoding the language of the body really will serve you better in the long run because then you are going to get to the cause of that symptom.” (50:40)
