Registered nurse-midwife and women's health advocate Susan Fekety is our guest today in Episode 620 of The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!
Women these days face some rather unique health challenges requiring an effective diet and lifestyle strategy for overcoming those pesky little problems that tend to crop up. Unfortunately, the definition of what constitutes good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle change tends to be a low-fat, high-carb diet with lots of "healthy whole grains" and daily exercise. But Susan Fekety, RN, founder of Healthy Living Health Care in Falmouth, Maine, believes that scientifically-sound, intellectually honest, people-based health care is sorely needed in this day and age of rampant obesity, chronic disease and declining overall health.
Susan recognizes the importance of keeping hormones in balance, supporting healthy immunity, achieving normalized body weight, conceiving naturally, recharging libido, restoring authentic energy and preventing heart disease and diabetes. The way she gets her patients there is by addressing the carbohydrate quantity and quality as an essential element for women’s good health. Helping women eat in a way that is right for their metabolism is the centerpiece of Susan's work. Listen in as Jimmy and Susan talk about the power of a low-carb nutritional approach, why traditional health care strategies are making women's health worse and her belief that there is no one right way to eat since we are all so metabolically different.
