We are fortunate to welcome back Dr. Mary Claire Haver, a menopause guru, for her second appearance on the podcast (in case you missed it, or want a refresher, go back to episode 39 to listen to our first conversation which is one of our most downloaded episodes ever!).

Did you know that 1.2 billion women are going through menopause right now? In this episode, we delve into the prevalent misconceptions surrounding menopause. Dr. Haver sheds light on various aspects of this hormonal transition, including the misinformation surrounding hormones and cancer, and the staggering statistic that only 0.03% of the NIH (National Institute of Health) budget is allocated to menopause research, despite its universal relevance to all women. She also shares her approach to treating menopause through holistic approaches to health, highlighting the significance of sleep, diet, exercise, and overall lifestyle in managing menopausal symptoms.

Dr. Mary Claire Haver is board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a Certified Culinary Medicine Specialist from Tulane University. She is a Louisiana State University Medical Center graduate and completed her Obstetrics and Gynecology residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB). She is also a Certified Menopause Specialist through The Menopause Society, and in 2021 she opened Mary Claire Wellness, a clinic dedicated to caring for menopausal patients.

Dr. Haver has amassed over 4 million followers across social media by posting menopausal advice for women. She understands that menopause healthcare is in dire need of change and is proud to be leading the conversation. Her educational background and her own experience led her to develop the national bestselling book and online program, The Galveston Diet, a three-pronged lifestyle plan that encourages fuel refocusing, intermittent fasting, and anti-inflammatory nutrition to manage hormonal symptoms, stabilize weight, and revitalize the body as it ages to provide benefits that will last a lifetime.

She is working on her second book, The New Menopause, which will be released in Spring 2024. One particularly poignant moment from the interview is Dr. Haver’s assertion that she is part of a movement poised to transform medicine, recognizing the urgent need for increased focus on menopause healthcare. Her mission is to guide individuals back to their baseline and alleviate the stress associated with menopause through informed treatment options.

This episode resonates not only with women experiencing perimenopause or menopause but also with anyone who has women in their lives—be it daughters, mothers, sisters, or friends. By listening to Dr. Mary Claire Haver’s insights, individuals can positively influence their longevity and quality of life, paving the way for a more balanced, sane, and healthy existence.
