S5 E4 How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Own Healthcare with Susan Salenger



Women are typically the medical gatekeepers for their families yet, are commonly not as diligent with their OWN health. Guest author Susan Salenger wrote the book “Sidelined, How Women Manage & Mismanage Their Health” to change our internal conversation and make ourselves a priority. You can’t be there for your family if you are sick or not feeling well. Over 80% of patients lie to their doctors and women lie more than men. That can lead to inaccurate and possibly detrimental diagnosis and treatments. And what’s even more disturbing is that too many women don’t follow their doctor’s recommendations.

Join Lauren and Susan as they examine: why she wrote her book, why its so important and how it’s different from other books, why we don’t listen to our guts or do the same due diligence for ourselves that we do for our loved ones, how not “seeming rude” to our doctors outweighs telling them what’s really going on, the most common hurdles women need to overcome to improve their healthcare, how women should speak to their doctors, how to find the most competent doctors and advocate for yourself and tips for women who want to better manage their health and decision-making capabilities.

S3 E9 Why You Shouldn’t Neglect Your Gums with Dr. Sanda Moldovan



You may remember the line from the movie Pretty Woman, “I had all those strawberry seeds. And you shouldn’t neglect your gums.” Vivienne was right. Talking about gum health and dental wellness may not be ‘sexy,’ but you’ll learn some shocking things from holistic periodontist and wellness expert, Dr. Sanda Moldovan. She believes health issues that manifest in the mouth are key indicators for one’s overall health. In this episode Lauren and Dr. Moldovan discuss what our gums can detect about our health (like high blood pressure), the signs we should be looking for, how we can prevent gum disease in midlife, and the changes we should be making since many of us are more stressed or may have ignored the dentist for over a year.

Cathy will not only teach you how to breathe properly, she will explain how these deep breaths can relieve anxiety, lower blood pressure, balance hormones, help with digestion and yes, even help you look younger. And guess what? It won’t cost you a dime.
