211 Happy Menopause with Dr. Anna Cabeca

Tags: ,

Hi, I’m Alex!

If you need a little help to start playing by your own rules, there’s a few ways we can work together more closely.


Happy Menopause—is that really how we think of it? Let’s be real and say that menopause and its symptoms are NOT the things we look forward to! In honor of February, when we’re focusing on self-love and women’s pleasure, we are diving deep into all the aspects of menopause and learning that it really CAN be a happy (and healthy!) time for women.

Dr. Anna Cabeca is a dear friend, our most repeated guest, and an expert on women’s hormones and libido. Today, she’s letting us in on the secrets to be happy and healthy during menopause, perimenopause, and postmenopause. Dr. Anna shares how to eat for hormone balance, along with supplements and products to try. The field of sexual health, sexuality, and generally “feeling good” has so many important factors for women. Join me for this conversation with Dr. Anna and learn what you can do to get your crazy hormones back on track!
