Listen to Dr. Taryl Felhaber describe the suboptimal way that menopausal issues are currently dealt with in family practice. Poor physician undergraduate education and a paucity of continuing medical education offerings in the field for practicing physicians are but part of the problem. Too many family physicians under treat the often debilitating and life intrusive symptoms on the basis that hormones are 'unsafe,' some citing a twenty year old study purely on preliminary data. It needs to be remembered that with increasing life expectancies, especially among women, some may live a third to almost a half their lives in this situation. Discover other interesting facts and insights in this informative, timely and much needed interview.

The podcast focuses on health rather than disease. The conversation centers on resilience and epigenetics, the study of how other factors like behaviors and environment can influence gene expression. It also highlights daily healthful behaviors and techniques that may reduce the progression and facilitate recovery from chronic physical and mental diseases including chronic pain, addictions and trauma.
Lastly, it highlights helpful usable technologies as well as education on current trending medical delivery issues such as over-investigation and over-diagnosis. The aim is to encourage and educate you to take a more active and holistic approach to your own wellbeing.
