Real Health Conversations
Real Health Conversations (Formerly Low-Carb Conversations) is hosted by Holly Jean Mullen, FNTP and features a variety of voices in the world of modern nutrition and health science, expressing many different points of view.

Welcome to Low Carb Conversations with Leah Williamson and Holly Jean Mullen, Functional Nutritional Therapy Practitioners.

In this episode, Leah chats with Neuropsychiatrist and Author of the new book, The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond, by Dr. Louann Brizendine.

Dr Brizendine shares newly emerging information about women in the second half of life: during midlife, women’s brains are actually reshaped and “upgraded” in a way that creates new power, a bracing clarity, and a laser-like sense of purpose. Dr. Brizendine calls this process The Upgrade and argues that, if a woman knows how to step into her power and own her Upgrade, the second half of her life can be the better half.

Listen in as Leah and Dr Brizendine chat about the Transition (the period of time leading to The Upgrade). Dr Brizendine shares her research on tips on making The Transition to the Upgrade a better experience through mindset, nutrition, exercise, sleep and more. Dr Brizendine wishes for women experiencing this transition to experience more joy and serenity in their lives.
