Menopause and The Liver

The "Pause" Blog

"My purpose in life is to learn how to make my "Third Act" of life AWESOME."

"My God-given purpose is to share what I have learned with others."

I call the system I have developed to make our "Third Acts" awesome, The HOPE Protocol. I should have called it The HOPE Rope. It has four strands. I call them strands because they need to be intertwined to make a rope that will pull us out of The Hormone Abyss. The four strands are...

  • Hormone Optimization

  • Organic Sustenance

  • Purification Protocols

  • Enlightenment Coaching

Today's Hack is from The Purification Strand and has to do with Health Optimization.


"So, doc, I get it; I need to get progesterone and estradiol dancing again, and I also need to play the insulin glucagon SeeSaw Game, but is there anything I can do to balance my hormones and lose the weight even faster?" Yes! There is a way to lose weight even faster while on The Protable Menu, and it will also accelerate hormone balancing. What slows down and contributes significantly to our inability to lose weight and it is also in charge of converting and activating our hormones is a malfunctioning or fatty liver. If you want to lose weight and balance your hormones effectively and quickly, you'll need an optimized liver.

As I talk to hormonally challenged women, the primary emotion they suffer from is frustration. They are frustrated that they can't be their premenopause self. Their hormonal chaos has thrown them into the hormone abyss, and they can't find a way to climb out. They keep slipping further and further into the abyss. Their frustration eventually leads to anger and then depression.

When I began practicing wellness medicine, the first protocol I ever developed was a scary liver detox. Optimizing my liver function was one of the reasons I went into wellness. While in college, I played rugby. It is a ruffian sport played by gentlemen. After each game, the home team threw a party for the visiting team. There would be lots of beer drinking. At each party, we had a sing-off. One team would sing a bawdy song and then call on the other to outdo their song. Then they would sing another bawdy song, which would go on for hours. Rugby players are the toughest men I have ever met. And they could drink like fish. There was always someone on each team that could bite the end off of a beer bottle and chew it into sand. The chewing of glass was tame compared to some of the crazy acts I've seen rugby players do.

I bring this up because I developed a fatty liver at the young age of twenty-one. After two years of drinking copious amounts of beer, anytime I drank alcohol, I had a gnawing pain in the upper right quadrant of my abdomen. I would wake the following day after a game, and it felt like I had a basketball sitting below my lower ribs on the right side. I told my girlfriend then, and she made me make an appointment with my doctor.

My doctor told me that I had developed a fatty liver and that when I drank alcohol, my liver would swell. When my liver swelled, the liver's sheath stretched, causing discomfort. He told me I had to quit drinking beer and let my liver heal. I gave up drinking beer. Now, I am the type of person that hears what I want to hear. My doctor said you have to stop drinking beer.

I want to be transparent, I reduced my beer drinking, but I still had a lot of college time still to go, like another six years. But once I received my doctorate, I began my quest to heal my liver. My liver blood work has always been stellar, even back then. It was just this gnawing discomfort that made me anxious about what could happen when I became older. So I have been researching and experimenting with live optimization my entire career.

Over the last four decades, I have discovered...

  • Remove the upstream source of liver toxins.

  • Regenerate the liver cells' membranes

  • Restore the liver cells' ability to make energy

  • Reduce liver inflammation

  • Re-establish the liver's ability to detox itself

As you travel through the first phase of the Third Strand, Purification, we will concentrate on optimizing your liver. You will not only gain your ability to lose weight but also lose weight more quickly. As your liver optimizes, you will sleep better, have less anxiety and depression, get your tickle to me intimate back, and want to be social again. The reason the liver can be so effective is that an optimized liver lessens the time it takes to balance your hormones. And, remember, you are nothing more than a reflection of your hormones.

To lose weight and balance your hormones even faster and more effectively, optimize your liver. Mac Hack: Limit your alcohol consumption by...

  1. Always schedule the day you plan on consuming alcohol

  2. Limit yourself to one alcoholic drink and savor it.

We have found that when you schedule your consumption of alcohol, it is much easier to be disciplined. On the other hand, research shows that when you drink alcohol randomly, that is when we statistically are more apt to overdrink.

We have found that if you savor one cocktail, you will appreciate much more. We have also found that, depending on your size, one scheduled Mac Cocktail rarely causes your weight loss to stall. You may get away with two; If you are of a larger frame, If your drink two cocktails, and if you are of a smaller frame, weight loss will most likely stall. We have found that if you overdrink three or more cocktails, your liver, weight, and hormones are adversely affected.

If one drink leads to another, it is best to abstain from alcohol.

THE MAC COCKTAIL If you find that you cannot lose weight on your own, you're not alone. Research says 97% of women who go on a diet fail. The same study says that the 3% that succeed did so because they were held accountable. If you know that you are one of the 97% that needs an accountability coach to succeed...

In this conversation, I will teach you all four components of The HOPE Protocol in detail, and I will also explain to you what you will need to do to guarantee that you achieve the dress size you desire to look ravishing in a short few months.


ONE QUOTE "You probably don't give much thought to your liver (except maybe when you contemplate that third vodka soda), but its health is key to your overall health and weight. Your liver is the ultimate multitasker: It acts as a filter to remove toxins (like medications and alcohol) and nutrient byproducts such as ammonia from the blood; it aids in digestion by producing bile to help break down fat and absorb fat- and water-soluble vitamins and minerals; and it plays a part in regulating glucose, blood pressure, blood sugar, insulin, estrogen, testosterone, immunity, and blood cholesterol production and removal. And you thought you had a long to-do list!""Because of all of this activity, your liver may be in need of a little TLC. When it's overworked, toxic residues can build up, causing inflammation that is associated with obesity. In addition, a stressed-out liver can also cause fat to build up, especially around the belly. Added together, this can mean that no matter how much you restrict calories, weight loss is near impossible-unless you detox your liver." Valerie Berkowitz, Dietician for Shape Magazine

DOC MAC COACHING (For those interested in transforming their body through our coaching program) As I have mentioned, when my wife went into menopause, she gained weight so quickly that we were in shock. However, once we placed her on The Protable Menu, she lost weight nearly as quickly as she gained it. It was all about seesawing two of her hormones, insulin, and glucagon.

We discovered that once a woman enters menopause, her fat-burning hormones become nearly nonexistent. With her ovaries no longer producing progesterone or testosterone, she developed a condition called estrogen dominance. Once we shared The Protable Menu with patients, Wa La, they started losing weight like crazy.


Many gained their weight back. However, that is when we discovered those who regained their weight back were still estrogen dominant.

To lose weight, you will need to play the Insulin Glucagon Game. To maintain your "Happy" or "Bottom" weight, you will need to correct estrogen dominance.

Today, we are offering a virtual phone consultation with me for FREE. I pledge to you it will be the most informative consultation about menopause, hormones, and weight loss that you will ever have.

When my wife went into menopause, I saw firsthand her struggle with her weight and the myriad of other symptoms with her hormones becoming chaotic. I could not believe there wasn't anyone out there that had the knowledge to help menopausal women. I was disgusted with psych drugs being the go-to treatment for menopause. I have since dedicated my life to providing a solution for menopausal weight gain and the other symptoms that menopause causes. I promise you that I will use the knowledge I have gained to help you reverse the ravage menopause has caused to your body and life. I call my program HOPE for Menopause.

I'm retired. I don't do this as a job. I do this because there are very few doctors helping menopausal women be themselves again, and those doctors cost five figures.

Research shows that 97% of the people who try to make a transformation internally or externally fail. The 3% that succeed have accountability in the form of a coach. If you are interested in being in the 3%, schedule a FREE conversation with me.
