To Your Health – Season 4 – Episode 8

This week Sarah and Julia read chapter 7 of What Would Virginia Woolf Do? (Affiliate link) by Nina Lorez Collins – and this chapter is entitled “Health”.

The author runs down an entire laundry list of health problems that affect women of a certain age. And while it’s not always super fun to think about these problems, it’s much better to be prepared and take action than to ignore them until they get worse.

These are also not all related to or due to menopause. Some are just because we’re getting older. So some good and bad news in that.

We’ve discussed many of these health issues on the show in the past, but we’ll spend a little time going over the biggest concerns we have.
