Upcoming Pregnancy and Motherhood Summit

A happier, healthier, stronger mum is the best gift we can give our children. Most health professionals focus on the baby’s health, while the mum’s try to rebuild after baby and I’m super excited to be a speaker on this summit that’s all about the mother’s health as we bring children into the world – rebuilding strength and resilience in our bodies and minds during one of the most challenging and transformative times we ever experience. This free summit aims to give mums all the advice and education they need about nutrition, fitness, gut health, pelvic health, hormones and mental health — all in ONE place!

The Pregnancy & Motherhood Summit is online and free from September 10-16, 2018! Join for free HERE.

What do we cover in the show?

  1. Cholesterol – when to worry and what to do if your doc recommends statins and make an informed decision.

  2. FATS: Is it one size fits all or are some better suited to sat fats than others and others Mediterranean omegas / olive oil? (ie should everyone be running to the store for coconut oil or for some is that not the best way forward?)

  3. Belly fat: Seems that when a man gets a little lax on the lifestyle front, the belly cops it first: Why does that happen? Why a big tummy ain’t ok long term and what best to do to reduce belly fat in men?

  4. Man Boobs or Moobs as I heard them called the other day: Too much estrogen? How do our men sort those out?

  5. Is intermittent fasting good for all / certain situations where best not? And how is IF different for men / women?

  6. Best way for a man to build muscle mass / reduce fat and maintain?

  7. Brain health: We see the stats on alzheimer’s and this one has hit home for me recently with a friend’s husband having early onset AD – what are some of the key stressors to the body / brain in our earlier years that can set us up for a stronger disposition to AD / Dementia?  What are some of the best things men (specifically or say ‘for both men and women if yes) can do to grow older with a strong brain leading the charge?
