242_Making Menopause Your B*tch with Esther Blum, MS, RD, CDN, CNS

by | May 7, 2024

Welcome to another episode of the Smart Nutrition Made Simple Show. I’m your host, as always, Ben Brown, owner and head coach at Body Systems.

Today on the show I’m excited to welcome back my good friend Esther Blum, MS, RD, CDN, CNS. Esther is an integrative dietitian and menopause expert who’s helped thousands of women master menopause through nutrition, hormones, and self-advocacy.

She is the best-selling author of See Ya Later, Ovulator, Cavewomen Don’t Get FatEat Drink and Be GorgeousSecrets of Gorgeous, and The Eat, Drink, and Be Gorgeous Project.

Known as Gwyneth Paltrow’s menopause mentor and by Forbes for helping women thrive through menopause, Esther was also voted Best Nutritionist by Manhattan Magazine. She has appeared on the Today Show, ABC-TV, Good Day NY, and is frequently quoted in Goop, Well + Good, Forbes, Time Magazine, The New York Post, The Los Angeles Times, In Style, Bazaar, Self, Fitness, Marie Claire, and Cosmo.

In today’s conversation, we dive deep into all things menopause and perimenopause, the significant gap in healthcare that leaves many women underserved, and the crucial role of hormone replacement therapy. Esther shares her expert insights on how hormonal imbalances affect everything from sleep patterns to mood swings to brain fog and weight gain, and offers practical advice on managing these symptoms through diet, exercise, and proper hormone management.

We also talk about the need for education about menopause for both men and women to foster better understanding and support, the role of carbs in managing cortisol levels and overall hormone balance, and why women need to prioritize themselves over focusing so much on everyone else.

This is a fantastic conversation that will provide you with a ton of value and give you the information you need to get as Esther calls it, “exquisite meno care”.
