In this episode, we dive into a few very critical and hard-to-discuss topics like birth control, difficulties getting pregnant, and the importance of muscle-building for women. Dr. Jaime talks about the ways women can optimize their health if they are taking birth control including the specifics of certain nutrients that are often depleted in these circumstances. We also talk about the importance of nutrient-sensing pathways that play a critical role in signaling that the female body is in an optimal environment to reproduce and how this is a big reason why so many people are struggling to get pregnant.
Dr. Jaime puts a big emphasis on the importance of muscle building for women when it comes to anti-aging, hormones, and even metabolic health. Dr. Jaime also gets into the nitty gritty of her new book Hard to Kill and how important it is for us to take control of the 4 pillars of health to increase our resilience and set us up a longer, happier, and healthier life.
In addition to Dr. Seeman's book, she offers an academy for Hard to Kill where she leads you through her program providing you with the support you need to make the incredibly beneficial lifestyle changes she recommends.
