In this episode, you’ll learn amazing “fun nuggets” that will boost your health and longevity AND get some great tips on writing a book that can build a community to create positive change.
Now that is what I call a fun legacy!
My guest is Dr. Anna Cabeca, author of The Hormone Fix and the upcoming Keto Green 16.
Here are the episode’s “fun nuggets” regarding health and longevity:
#1: Healthy hormones are not just about estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. The master controls are 1) insulin, 2) cortisol, and 3) oxytocin. For an oxytocin hit, try the following: puppy love, kitten love (think any baby animal or snuggly baby in general) laughter, play, intimacy, dancing...the list goes on!
#2: Hormones are also critical to our mental clarity (important for writing a book or any focused endeavor)
#3: We are (especially women) especially neuro-endocrine vulnerable between the ages of 35 to 55.
#4: Memory and mood are strongly impacted by fuel source (the options are either glucose or ketones for the brain; having some ketones as fuel can be excellent for the brain)
Here are the “fun nuggets related to the writing and publishing journey:
#1: A book can start and build a community (and create a movement)
#2: A traditionally published book such as Dr. Anna’s starts with an agent that truly believes in the work, and then moves into the proposal and finally writing stages
#3: For writing efficiency, Dr. Anna recommends focus, fasting and an accountability partner
#4: For the editing process, be ready to “let go” of much of your content, as the magic can happen in the pruning process (Dr. Anna referred to it as “slash and burn”).
