Ep 136 How the Female Brain Gets Better in Midlife w/ Dr. Louann Brizendine

On today’s episode, I was thrilled to welcome Dr. Louann Brizendine, author of the bestselling book “The Female Brain” and the new book “The Upgrade: How the Female Brain Gets Stronger and Better in Midlife and Beyond.” Dr. Louann and I got into some amazing conversation around how our female hormones aren’t just sex hormones, but are also neurochemicals (affecting our brains), how those changes are different between cycling women and women after menopause (which she calls “the upgrade”), and what women can expect from not just their brains but their entire lives after the upgrade. A must listen for any woman over 35!

Dr. Louann Brizendine, MD, is the Lynne and Marc Benioff Endowed Chair in Clinical Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco, founder of UCSF’s Women’s Mood and Hormone Clinic and New York Times bestselling author of The Female Brain and The Male Brain. She lives in Sausalito, California with her husband.
