The conversation around menstruation has become far more normalized since we were younger. But what about those of us nearing the end of that period (pun intended) of our lives? If you’ve ever laid awake at night drenched in sweat and felt like you had to suffer alone, then this episode is for you. Alicia talks with Dr. Mary Claire Haver, a board-certified OBGYN, with a Certification in Culinary Medicine and menopause specialist, about everything (and we mean everything) women should know about menopause.

LinkedIn - The Galveston Diet with Dr. Mary Claire Haver

As one third of women are currently in some phase of menopause, it is an essential aspect of women’s lives, yet so stigmatized and shrouded with shame and steeped in anxiety over aging that many women still don’t feel comfortable talking about their menopause journey with friends, family, and most crucially, their doctors. Kept in the dark, menopause becomes more difficult to understand and control, leaving many women to suffer in silence.

Dr. Mary Claire Haver is here to change all of that. Recently the Board Certified OB-GYN has set TikTok alight with an unlikely subject---menopause---amassing nearly 2 million followers by posting advice for women going through it. Dr. Haver understands that women’s healthcare is in dire need of a change. So often, when women talk to their healthcare providers about issues such as weight gain, sleep changes, hot flashes, and mental health issues, they are dismissed with platitudes like "it's just your hormones" or it's "just your age," and given the advice to "eat less and exercise more."

The problem has led Dr. Haver to develop 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.

Dr. Haver has always had a passion for learning and a strong work ethic. She is a graduate of Louisiana State University Medical Center, and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Medical Branch. In addition to her clinical work, she became an instructor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, has served as a Hospitalist, the Associate Residency Director and Assistant Professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, and is certified in Culinary Medicine by Tulane University School of Medicine.
