The main drivers of gut health change are shifts in stomach acid, gut immunity and gastrointestinal flora—the complex ecosystem of bacteria in your digestive system.

    For example, when your partner makes a misstep, picture an external temporary explanation for it…if he or she is late to dinner, do you think, He doesn’t care about my time,..or He was probably stuck in bad traffic? Reflect on what your partner has done recently for the sake of the relationship. Find a few minutes every month or so to mentally list two or three things you partner has done lately for you. Touch, happy couples do more affectionate touching, such as holding hands, giving shoulder rubs, placing a hand on partner’s knee than unhappy couples.

End the War with Food: Intuitive Eating

Speaker :

Elyse Resch, MS, RDN, CEDRD-S, Fiaedp, FADA, FAND,

    • Reject the diet mentality. That's the first principle of intuitive eating, an evidence-based approach to feeding yourself that connects the mind, body, and emotions. It encourages you to tune into your own body signals and behaviors and to view all foods as equal and to enjoy all foods without guilt.



It can help chronic dieters break free from the cycle of dieting and heal their relationship with food and their body. Since intuitive eating is not a diet, there are no rules to follow. Instead, intuitive eating includes 10 guiding principles that individuals can practice learning how to trust their own instinct about feeding themselves. Learn to honor your hunger by eating enough carbohydrates and maintaining your energy levels to focusing on how it feels when you move your body—that can be as simple as going for a morning walk.

MenoColor: What BIPOC Women Need to Know about Menopause

Speaker:

Dr. Nanette Santoro, MD, University of Colorado

    Black, Latina, Native American and Asian women begin perimenopause earlier, experience more intense effects, and have a longer transition period than white women. Even though menopause takes many women by surprise, one thing we know for certain about the phases of menopause is that the experience varies widely from individual to individual. A woman may have a month of hot flashes and then a year later realize, casually, that she hasn’t had a period in a full 12 months. Another woman may struggle through nearly a decade of depression and sleeplessness before she hits the milestone. There are many factors that go into why this is so. Everything from whether you smoke to how much you exercise to your family history to the amount of stress in your daily life can all play a role in how menopause happens for you. But one surprising factor appears to be race and ethnicity.
