We are thrilled to have Alisa Vitti back on the pod, this time on the magical maddening world of menopause. Self-care makes a huge difference in navigating this journey, but the conversation often goes unaddressed. Alisa takes the time to shine a light on this most important — and often misunderstood — aspect of women’s health.
We talk everything, from when menopause *actually* begins (spoiler alert), to taking care of yourself at every stage of the cycle, and Alisa’s brilliant philosophy that biology always sets us up to be the best version of ourselves. PREACH! And yes, we get into menopause and sex and get Alisa’s take on maintaining libido to enjoy sex at all stages of life.
We love talking to Alisa, as her advice is always super actionable on a personal level. Menopause is not a scary word, we need to talk about it more comfortably. Listen up to hear what we mean!
