Where You Live Affects Your Life with Ryan Frederick

Is where we live destroying our health or making it better? In this episode with Ryan Frederick and Dr. Stephanie dive into place as a tool for longevity. We discuss cities around the world, and even the geographical advantages and disadvantages of different areas of the US & Canada. We talk about how the same place can change over time and highlight current trends like the mass exodus from California and New York City to Florida and Texas and the reasons behind them. You’ll find out the ways in which a location can help you live better and longer, and how to choose the right one for you. Finally, they’ll touch on community design, and how to determine if where you live is helping or harming your health.

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!
