Today’s guest is a board certified OBGYN and a leading voice in the women’s health space—Dr. Heather Bartos! Dr. Bartos was a gynecologist in the Navy for 12 years before moving into corporate medicine. After becoming fed up with a system that wasn’t providing real solutions, she left and opened her own OBGYN practice. From yoga and meditation, to natural hormones and functional medicine—it’s a village for women’s health!

 

Our conversation will be digging deep into women’s sexuality, libido, hormones, and positive self-talk. As women, we tend to harbor thoughts and feelings around our sexuality. We develop shame around our sexuality starting at an early age, which affects the way we view our bodies and sex lives. Today, we are opening up a dialogue to begin embracing and understanding the beautiful beings that we as women are!

 

We Chat About:

  • Pros and cons of birth control
  • What is a diaphragm?
  • Using a Diva Cup
  • Celebrating women’s bodies
  • Smarter babies & bigger butts!
  • Focusing on how you feel vs. look

Today on the pod we have wellness and mindset coach, Amanda Katherine Loy, joining us to talk about all things body image! Amanda is so open as she talks about her journey of stepping into her unapologetic self after many years of yo yo dieting and having a negative self-image. Right after turning 27 years old, she found out she was positive for the BRCA1 gene, which greatly increased her likelihood of developing breast cancer. As a preventative measure, she had a double mastectomy. Amanda shares how imperative it was that she had worked for years on developing a positive body image, so she could come at that big transition from a healthy place and bring self-love through all of it. We love Amanda’s raw honesty and vulnerability, while being upbeat and positive as she shares her story. Be on the lookout for Amanda’s upcoming book!

 

We Chat About:

  • Social media’s role in negative body image
  • What are the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes?
  • The importance of community
  • Listening to your body’s needs
  • Body image in relationship to food and exercise 
  • Being an advocate for your own health
  • Facing your fears head on
