Conquer Your Cycle at Every Age – Stephanie Estima, D.C., with Dave Asprey : 810

Great In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, Dr. Stephanie Estima encourages women to start the process of owning their health by collecting data on their cycle. That way, women can start to understand their body’s individuality and work with it, not against it.

She’s a doctor of Chiropractic with expertise in female metabolism and body composition who joined me on the show to discuss her new book “The Betty Body: A Geeky Goddess’ Guide To Intuitive Eating, Balanced Hormones, And Transformative Sex.”

The term “Betty” originally came from the fans of her podcast “Better! With Dr. Stephanie,” but it ended up fitting just right for what she stands for as a woman and a doctor. As she says in her book: “Betty is a fully embodied force of nature. Her intuition knows what her body needs and how to attend to herself to nourish, not punish. A Betty is sexiness embodied.”

When you’re in the worst part of your cycle and feel irritable and/or exhausted, Dr. Stephanie says it can be a time to look inwards and re-evaluate how and why you feel the way that you do. You’ll learn about what phases of your cycle are best for what activities; like, what is the best time to do a HIIT workout? Conduct an interview? Launch a new project? Start fasting?

She also explains the ways keto and fasting can negatively impact women, most commonly through bad sleep and hair loss. She says women can manipulate three variables in fasting for more success: the type of fast, the length of fast and the frequency of fast. You learn why you have to pay attention to leptin resistance and what helps to fix keto for women.

“We often think that health is this really difficult full-time job that we all need to hire the personal trainer, and the body worker, and the nutritionist, and the chef,” she says. “Once we step into the intuitive nature that our bodies already have and begin to decode the signals, then you really become more attuned with your body rhythms and you'll be able to respond appropriately.”

Add in knowing your metabolic markers, focusing on muscle strength, and eating for nutritional needs, not calorie counting.

Dr. Stephanie shares a lot of knowledge we’ve never had on the show before, and she does it in a way that I find super empowering. Coronal plane exercises and brain health, anyone? Yep, you’ll learn that here, too. She does an incredible job encouraging women to own their period, and through that, their body and their powerful presence in the world.
