There are a few things that would happen in a one-to-one appointment with patients that change how successful they are. Your health hinges on your ability to execute your habits, and yet we have such difficulty making change.  Here are some new ideas.  In this episode, we talk about my first course, The Pillars of Perimenopause, which is a habit change challenge slash educational program to help you actually change and equip you to have a better health experience in your 40s and 50s.  You can register before May 1, and then we can all start together as a group.  My tak ..read more

Should you be treating the “root cause” or treat your symptoms with bandaids?

In this week’s episode, we discuss where ‘root cause’ medicine comes from and where things have gone wrong.  I share my insights for how treating the root cause can look like Addressing the risk factors that set you up for a chronic condition  Treating co-morbidities to help improve your health status  Making changes to your lifestyle to reduce your future need for medication or the need for increased medication  Co-supporting long term medication prescriptions to help you get the most out of your prescription.  What root cause medicine isn’t is the relentles ..read more

As the youngest of 8 kids, Dr. Sharon Malone watched her mother navigate the world with good old common sense. When she became a gynecologist, author and the health-advocate for thousands of women she took the exact same approach.  Cited as the “first person I turn to for a whole host of issues, especially my health” by Michelle Obama, Sharon has a mission of taking information that used to “belong” to doctors and make it accessible and available to every woman.  In her book, Grown Woman Talk, she covers conditions from fibroids to endometriosis and how to navigate midlife with confi ..read more

The biggest missed opportunity in women’s health (and it’s not your hormones for once).
Women's Health Unplugged

If we ask a room full of women what their greatest health risk is they either can’t answer, or answer breast cancer.  If we ask people what a typical heart patient looks like, they often have an immediate vision of a man.  If we cram women’s health into a 7-minute health appointment, we probably aren’t asking her about her pregnancy history.  This, is the bad news of women’s heart health.  The good news is, we can change your path. If you listen to this conversation.  Heart health is a woman’s number one health risk, and oftentimes, she’s carrying around sex-specific r ..read more

Biohacking and who we haven’t had on the podcast
Women's Health Unplugged
by Dr. Jordan Robertson ND
1M ago
We’ve had a lot of opportunities to do an episode on biohacking. We probably get asked 4-5 times per week to host someone on the show who has a product, supplement, lab test or wearable that they want to talk about.  We’ve pretty much always said no.  Why? Biohacking falls into this weird category of health and wellness that isn’t really evidence-based. It’s so “cutting edge” and so “ahead of the curve” that we don’t know if it works.  In this episode, I share how to think about biohacking from wearables to supplements and the questions to ask yourself (good and bad) before you ..read more

Should you listen to your body? Maybe no.
Women's Health Unplugged

In today’s episode, we talk about an important phrase in women’s health   “Listen to your body”   We’re going to break down when you should actually listen to your body and when listening to your body is actually getting in your way of progress.    Exercise is an amazing example, given that when we study exercise, we actually make the participants do the exercise. We don’t ask them if they are too tired or if they “feel like it”. The benefits they get come from the doing. Not from doing it if they want to.    Before you listen to your body, we need to ask a few qu ..read more

The Supplements I Take (Not Clickbait)
Women's Health Unplugged
by Dr. Jordan Robertson ND
2M ago
"What supplements do you take, Jordan?" This is one of the most common questions I get asked on social media. I will give you the answer, but we will also talk about why you're asking in the first place.  Wellness behaviours and nutrition have this weird space in medicine where we expect to get our answers online, our advice from friends or our hairstylist and personalized recommendations from an Instagram post. We're going to dive into this and look at why we want validation, hope, and an illusion of safety when we see someone else doing something.  I also share with you my current ..read more
