In this episode Nathalie talks to Dr Mindy Pelz about her new book - The Menopause Reset - virtually a “user’s manual” on how women can reclaim power over their health by understanding and supporting their hormones. The book is fantastic - it is short and to the point and explains in detail how each woman can make simple yet powerful changes to their diet and lifestyle that will support their cycles while helping them to look, feel and perform their best.
Meet this week’s guest:
Dr. Mindy Pelz, D.C is a best selling author, keynote speaker, nutrition and functional medicine expert who has spent over two decades helping thousands of people successfully reclaim their health. She is a recognized leader in the alternative health field and a pioneer in the fasting movement, teaching the principles of a fasting lifestyle, diet variation, detox, hormones, and more. Her popular YouTube channel combines the latest science with practical lifestyle tools every person can use to reset their health. She is the host of one of the leading science podcasts, The Resetter Podcast, and the author of three best-selling books; The Menopause Reset, The Reset Factor, and The Reset Kitchen.
