Rank #3: Episode 63 - Avrum Bluming MD + Carol Tavris PhD: Estrogen Matters

Podcast cover
Read more
Estrogen Matters: Why Taking Hormones in Menopause Can Improve Women's Well-Being and Lengthen Their Lives -- Without Raising the Risk of Breast Cancer. This brilliant, groundbreaking book, co-authored by Avrum Bluming MD and Carol Tavris PhD. tackles the confusing and often controversial subject of HRT. Realising there was so much misinformation out there, they decided to set the record straight and this book is the result. It is so well researched that it’s every scientists dream, but it’s written so that every day folk, like me, can digest the information and feel comfort in their expertise. The show today answers many questions women have about HRT, it’s implications on heart health, breast cancer, osteoporosis and alzheimers. Dr Bluming has spent the past two decades studying the benefits and risks of hormone replacement therapy administered to women with a history of breast cancer, with over 60% of his work focused on breast cancer. Carol Tavris received her PhD in social psychology from the University of Michigan. Is the author of numerous books, including,Mistakes Were Made (But Not By Me) and and has received numerous awards for her efforts to promote gender equality, science, and skepticism. I was delighted to have them on the show, in this clear, witty and informative chat on why Estrogen Matters. Are you enjoying the podcast?

Rank #9: Episode 38 James Fell - The Holy Shit Moment!

Podcast cover
Read more
James Fell is an international fitness columnist and author and his new book, The Holy Shit Moment! is a no-nonsense guide on how to get in shape, fix your finances, alleviate depression and change your life for good. We’ve all been there. Wanting to change your life forever, but only doing it in fits and starts. Feeling inspired to be disciplined one day, then falling back into old habits on the next. Or changing for a few weeks or even months, but then slipping back into familiar behaviours. Bad habits are hard to break for a reason. But you still try because the goal is worth it: slowly and painfully forming new habits to the point where you are able to adhere to a new lifestyle, long-term. What if there was a different way? What if all the motivation they would ever need to change could arrive unbidden because of a life-altering flash of insight? It is the power of epiphany a triggering event when drive and clarity of purpose for changing one’s life is instantly attained. www.bodyforwife.com
