How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife & Beyond


All too often the conversation around menopause has been ignored or misunderstood but there are many of us working to change the conversation. My guest today, Dr. Louann Brizendine is one of those voices of change. She is using her unique ability to make science approachable to create a positive new framework for this life stage. Her new book, The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife & Beyond is a game changer! This book is for anyone going through perimenopause and menopause or even those of you in your late thirties. If you’re older, you’ll be able to relate to it and if you haven’t started the transition, it will serve as a guide to what’s to come and what you can do.

Here’s what others are saying about Dr. Louann’s work:

“Dr. Louann Brizendine’s The Upgrade is uplifting, upbeat about the physical, mental and social health of women in the upper chamber of the life cycle.   If you’re 60 years old and up, you will love this book. As she did in The Female Brain (a bible for all women), Dr Brizendine writes clearly and jauntily, this time explaining why, generally, we get happier as we age. The Upgrade is an engrossing read, rich with science and psychology and hopefulness.”—Leslie Stahl, Correspondent, 60 minutes

Knowledge is power and to go into menopause with more insight will hopefully make the process a little smoother. Gain some more knowledge in this inspiring conversation with Dr. Louann. Midlife and beyond can truly be some of the best years, there’s science to prove it!

And the mainstream wellness advice I was following was not for women my age but for women years younger. I also realized very quickly that there is no one formula that works for all women. We are all different and need a customized approach. This aha moment was the first step to my transformation…
