I'm Dr. Stephanie

My life's passion and mission is blending modern science with ancient wisdom to empower women's health and healing.

hey there

This week Dr. Mindy Pelz returns to the Better Show with round 2 in a collaborative episode with her show. The Resetter Podcast. We had such a blast the first time around, we had to give our listeners what they wanted..and aren’t we glad we did. If you don’t already know Dr. Mindy Pelz, she is a renowned holistic health investing expert who is on a mission to get a million people fasting this year. She has made countless videos on Youtube about health, and fasting, generating over 15 million lifetime views. We dove straight into our favourite topics, women training on their period, the hormonal advantages and disadvantages women face during certain phases, and why lifting weights at a certain age is very important. The topic of Collagen, and other supplements such as Creatine, and Aminos (BCAA’s) is discussed and how to use them and what to expect. We touch on refeed days and carb intake to get a caloric bump or just a nice pump for those muscles of yours. We finish off our episode with fasting, and how you should listen to your body and find what feels right for you. Thanks for watching!
