MenuPause: Feel Incredible at Any Stage of Life with Dr. Anna Cabeca

The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

Dr. Anna talks about her upcoming book MenuPause and how you can use the six-day menu plans to overhaul your hormonal balance and allow your body to detoxify and heal. Learn about the different phases of detoxification, the #1 most beneficial thing for your body no matter how old you are, and why your health always comes down to two specific factors. [0:30] Dr. Anna talks about her past book releases, and what her latest book is about. MenuPause is a collection of six-day menu plans that pause out something from your diet because something as simple as a six-day pause can make a huge change in your life. [4:35] You can reclaim the health of your life through food. Menopause can be one of the most challenging stages of your life and what you eat has a direct impact on your ability to handle and manage that time. [6:20] Detoxification symptoms can sneak in when you are pausing out certain foods. As we detox, emotions are released as well. Many different religions from around the world say similar things about how your organs hold certain emotions. As we take in nutrients and help our bodies release toxins, we consistently see a release of toxic emotions as well. [8:40] You need to empty the trash and sometimes that means having another person to hold the trash can for you so you can talk. [9:25] Phase 1 detoxification is mobilizing the toxin into a water soluble molecule and phase 2 is flushing them out. Your liver needs to function well and have the proper nutrients in order to detoxify. [10:20] Hormones are energetic molecules. We are energetic beings. Thoughts are energy. The Keto Green way is more than just a diet, it’s a way of looking at life. [14:30] We go farther as a community. We need to reach out more. The most healing hormone in your body is oxytocin, also known as the feel-goodd hormone. The most beneficial thing for your body is to feel good, and that includes orgasm. [16:00] Your body is designed for pleasure, for exercise, to be nourished and cared for. Your body is the cathedral of your spirit. Be good to yourself and be good to others. [18:00] Dr. Anna details the different six-day plans found in MenuPause and which one may be right for you. [22:50] In Japan, women view menopause as their second spring and a time of renewal. Since they tend to follow a more plant-based diet their experience of menopause is very different than women in the West. [24:50] Join the Keto Green challenge group to start your transformation. Dr. Anna has seen incredible improvements in people where they have lost extra weight or got off certain medications because of changing their diet. [26:30] Dr. Anna lost her mother at a young age from health problems and complications in surgery. Life and death have taught her two things, health always comes down to inflammation and hormonal imbalance/adrenal dysfunction. The life cycles of women around the world hint at what works and what doesn’t when it comes to diet and lifestyle. [28:50] Dr. Anna’s father experienced health problems as well and at the age of 79 his symptoms were pretty much dismissed by his cardiologist as simply old age. Dr. Anna took on her father’s treatment and in 30 days he went from almost bedridden to playing tennis with his grandchildren. It doesn’t matter how old you are, you can always turn around Type 2 Diabetes but it starts with you taking control of your health.

2022: Inviting More Miracles Into Your Life This Year with Dr. Anna Cabeca and Marci Schimoff

The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

We can’t create miracles, but we can create the conditions to invite them into our lives this year. The biggest thing that each of us can do to create a better world is for each of us to live a better, happier life. Marci Schimoff talks about her Year of Miracles program and how you can learn to become open to receiving more miracles in your life, how to focus your energy and attention on love and gratitude, and why the path to peace is finding happiness that doesn’t depend on your circumstances. [0:30] 2021 was a year of challenge and growth for many people, Marci included. Pivoting into her opportunities has been a real blessing. [2:20] The past year has also introduced a lot of additional stress into people’s lives. Having a supportive community around you can be crucial to growth and wellbeing, and can help you avoid becoming depressed and isolated. [5:10] We can’t do everything alone. We are social creatures and we get energy from connection with other people. Marci helps organize groups of women to connect with each other which has created miraculous changes in their lives. [7:30] A miracle is a surprise and welcomed event that can’t be explained by science and often attributed to divine grace. We can’t create miracles, but we can create the conditions for miracles to show up in our lives. [9:00] The first step to formulate for miracles is to remove the blocks that we have that prevent miracles from flowing into our lives. Miracles are everywhere, we just aren’t necessarily open to them. One of the biggest blocks is not feeling worthy of them. We unconsciously block good from coming our way because we feel unworthy of it. [10:15] Somebody can only give you something to the degree you are open to receiving it. The same is true with the universe. [10:30] Ask yourself the following five questions to assess how well you receive in your life: Do you do a good job taking in compliments? Do you receive gifts easily? Are you able to ask people for help? Do you share in your wins and successes, or do you downplay everything? Do you feel okay receiving if it comes easily, or does it feel like cheating if you don’t struggle or work hard? [15:05] Notice the ways you are unconsciously pushing away the good in your life. The more you can practice this, the more open to receiving you will become and more miracles will show up in your life. Focus on the energy of love and gratitude instead of brushing it off. [17:00] What we put our attention on grows, so choose where you put your energy and attention and focus on what makes you feel good. The better you feel, the more you will attract like energy. [17:50] Most people set New Year’s resolutions, but only 8% of people realize their intentions by the end of the year. The difference is in setting soul-based intentions rather than ego-based intentions. When you set a resolution, notice whether you feel expanded or contracted. [21:30] Marci tells the stories of a few of the people that have gone through the Year of Miracles program. [23:45] Marci has everyone set an overarching theme for the year. This year Marci’s theme is to trust in the flow and the universe. People who are happiest believe that the universe is on their side and fundamentally benevolent. Look for ways to find joy in the moment, even when things are tough. [26:45] We are all works in progress and it comes down to habits. If you can look at negative things and see what could be better instead of how bad things are, you are on the right path. [27:50] The five foundations of the Year of Miracles program spell USHER: Universe, Soul, Heart, Energy, Responsibility.

Boosting Your Metabolic Health at Age 50 and Beyond with Dr. Anna Cabeca and JJ Virgin

The Girlfriend Doctor w/ Dr. Anna Cabeca

JJ Virgin shares the key lifestyle changes that you need to make to boost your metabolism and live your best life at age 50 and beyond. Learn about the seven foods you should drop immediately from your diet, how to cross train your diet in the same way you would cross train your exercise, and the key health parameters you should be paying attention to every week to know if you’re moving in the right direction.  [1:45] One of the things you have to prioritize as you age is self-care and putting yourself first. Sacrificing your sleep may no longer be a worthy option. You can be in your best shape at 50, but you need to focus on what you need to be healthy. [3:30] A healthy body burns fat and holds onto muscle. If you’re carrying around extra weight, it may be an indicator that you have a metabolic condition. Weight loss is a side benefit of your metabolism working well. [4:20] You need to step on the scale everyday if you want to understand how your body is functioning. The key is to position yourself as the observer instead of the judge. People who weigh in every day keep the weight off and it helps you connect the dots between what you’re eating and how it’s working for you. [7:00] There are seven foods that are commonly found in most people’s diets that once removed often result in immediate weight loss. We’re very aware of food sensitivities like shellfish and peanuts, but rarely pay attention to things like sugar and gluten. [8:50] You need to eliminate sugar and sweeteners from your diet. Sugar is doing a lot of disruption to your gut and making it more inflammatory overall. [9:45] There is a right way to do keto and a wrong way to do keto. Paying attention to your alkalinity and constant measuring is important to keeping a diet on track. [11:45] JJ is anti-diet. Dieting should be used therapeutically in the short-term, so you can learn what works for you and bring that into your daily routine. Cross train your diet like you would use your exercise. [12:40] 76% of us are overweight or obese right now, and only 12% of the population would be considered metabolically healthy. [13:40] For someone metabolically healthy, intuitive eating can work well to help you understand what food is working for you. Since most people aren’t in that category, intuitive eating is pointing them in the wrong direction. [14:30] Avoid eating before sleep and avoid eating for at least an hour after waking up. Get up and get active as quickly as possible. [15:30] Any kind of toxin can get in the way of you losing weight. Mold toxicity is extremely prevalent and can cause major issues metabolically speaking. [17:15] The first meal in the morning where most people mess up. So many of the breakfast choices are simply sugar. When you break your fast it should be with clean protein, healthy fats and fiber. [19:00] A continuous glucose monitor can be a powerful tool in helping you understand the effects of food on your body. [21:25] Eating disorders are very common in the diabetic population. The trajectory of the US population is not going in a great direction. Right now, we are on track for 100% of the population to be diabetic by the year 2030. [23:15] You need to love yourself right where you are, and then dare yourself to want more. You just need a path to heal your metabolism and that’s not going to happen if we don’t have these conversations. [24:20] Dr. Anna goes over the baselines for metabolic health for both men and women. In addition to waist-to-hip ratio and triglycerides, we should also be paying attention to Vitamin D, blood pressure, and triglyceride to HDL ratio. If one of these factors are off, it becomes the precursor to several other factors going off the rails, and it can point you toward what you need to fix. [28:45] If your diet is dialed in but your fasting blood sugar and hemoglobin H1C is elevated, you may need to look at the stress in your life. It’s important to track these numbers because they point to where in your lifestyle you need to make some shifts so that it doesn’t get worse. [29:15] Focus on one change at a time, otherwise you won’t stick with anything. JJ recommends starting with food and identifying your hidden food intolerances. Once you know which foods work for and which ones don’t, you begin lowering your sugar impact, and that prepares you to enter ketogenic cycles without the usual pain involved with jumping into something new. [33:55] A caloric restricted diet doesn’t work long-term, but cross training and cycling through diets short-term can be very effective. It’s a lifestyle approach.

And it's not just about what we eat, but it's how we live when we eat, who we eat with” “Our hormones function in different ways. They relate. They are chemical messengers, writing a story, they are energetic messengers and they're led and driven.”  “When we focus on what's good in our lives, what we're focusing on is where we feel love, what you know is beautiful in our lives, the things that bring us joy and pleasure, that's oxytocin. That's the hormone of oxytocin. It's a different energy. It's the most alkalizing hormone in our body. It's the most healing hormone in our body. It's a hormone of fun and pleasure.” “So what do I know to be true right now? That's the number one question I ask. What do you know to be true? What's your reality? What is good in your life? And let's focus on those things that are good, noteworthy, positive, beautiful, bring you pleasure, joy, connection, the relationships, and people that you love and laugh with” “You have to be very intentional nowadays to choose the joy, to find the happiness and the bliss. It's not going to be delivered to you.” “One of the key aspects, lifestyle hacks is to practice gratitude before you get up” “No more snacking, snacking is destructive to our bodies, especially in perimenopause and menopause. So no more snacking and just creating these lifestyle practices to empower our physiology.” “Keto green is really helpful at any part of the life cycle, but it is essential and mandatory in menopause and perimenopause. It is essential and mandatory in perimenopause because these hormone shifts and this declining glucose, you know, this decline in progesterone and estrogen Our brain needs estrogen.” “How you're beginning the day to set yourself up before your breakfast is important, and then at the end of the day, priming your nervous system and getting your body ready for a good night.” Additional Information About Jenn: Jenn studied and graduated with honors in Human Anatomy and Physiology with such a passion that it propelled her to continue her education over many years.
