S7 E7 – How You Can Reduce Your Risk Of Dementia with Susan Saunders

Welcome to the 100th episode of Beauty is a Bitch!  It would seem dementia is on the rise, and that is a scary realization. The truth is, women have a greater risk of developing dementia during their lifetime. In fact, around twice as many women have Alzheimer’s disease – the most common type of dementia – compared to men. The main reason for this greater risk is because women live longer than men, and old age is the biggest risk factor for this disease. However, other factors also play a role.

Some of these risks can be mitigated, which begs the question, “What can we do for better brain health?”

Health coach Susan Saunders, specializes in helping women over 50 reduce dementia risk and optimize brain health through science-backed habits. She is the author of three books on healthy aging and longevity, with her most recent being The Power Decade: How to Thrive After Menopause.

Susan holds a high-level qualification as a dementia prevention coach under the guidance of neuroscientist Dr. Dale Bredesen, author of The End of Alzheimer’s. She was among the first in the UK to qualify as a coach in his program. Susan has successfully coached hundreds of people globally, helping them build habits scientifically proven to reduce dementia risk.

Please join Lauren and Susan as they dig deep into: the single most important thing we can do to look after our brains as we age; the six pillars of better brain health; why Susan started on this journey to better brain health; why we need to emphasize healthy habits to reduce our dementia risk; why more women than men get dementia; what happens to our brains during menopause; and what a coaching session looks like.

S3 E13 How Women Are Being Slowly Poisoned Unwittingly

You are NOT going to want to miss this jaw-dropping episode. What started as wanting to delve into the foods that cause skin imbalances turned into an episode exposing how women are being slowly poisoned by the foods we eat and products we use. They can lead to devastating results. Join Lauren as she talks to Dr. Ben Johnson, creator of Osmosis Beauty, which offers disruptive skincare and holistic wellness products. If you follow him on social media, you will know Dr. Ben is on a crusade to blow the lid off of why we are getting sick and it all leads back to toxins in our food and water supplies, combined with our diets. And no, vegans are not safe either. In this episode you will learn what foods to avoid, the one source of vegan protein everyone is raving about but is really quite toxic, the foods you should be eating, and even the anti-aging topical products you need to stop using ASAP. There is so much more. You might want to grab a pen and take notes.
