My guest Dr Leslie Kasanoff a holistic chiropractor and health coach focused on holistic health and nutrition. She works with women who want to lose weight, address hormone issues, and resolve or reverse chronic health issues, not just treat them, using food and lifestyle as medicine.

  • How mass-produced foods are contributors to our hormone issues
  • Why reducing animal food intake & eliminating dairy is key to managing perimenopause symptoms.
  • Why getting down to your ideal weight before perimenopause is important
  • The big myth about dairy and osteoporosis prevention
  • What we can learn from the Asian traditional diet in managing Menopause symptoms
  • What a whole food/true Mediterranean diet really looks like
  • The role of fermented foods in gut health

Clarissa Kristjansson Independant Podcaster

At 62 Clarissa Kristjansson knows that menopause can be positive, transformational and an upgrade in our creativity. Clarissa is an internationally recognized menopause educator, third-age women's health coach, and certified mindfulness and medical qi gong practitioner.

A neuroscientist and former corporate high-flyer it was her own perimenopause experience that set her on a different path to empower women. And by cracking open the conversation about our beliefs and behaviour we can shift the collective mindset to seeing menopause not as the end but as an opportunity for reinvention and revitalization.
