How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep


 How To Get A Better Night’s Sleep

Do you struggle with a good night’s sleep? We look at what we do when we are awake that can positively or negatively impact sleep quality and the role of early morning light exposure and blue light exposure. We also discuss effects of caffeine consumption and adenosine, exercise, the role of the liver, and how to supplement to improve sleep.

Geeky Magic is a new type of episode I’m adding to the line up to take a step away from the interviews. I’m going to bring you personal insights, FAQ’s, and trending topics in a more condensed, quick, and actionable way. If you ever have a question about anything, I have a Facebook group where I address listener questions! Make sure to join the Facebook Group.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
