Dr. Anna shares that at 39 years old, she experienced early-onset menopause. This caused infertility, which was able to reverse. She went on to have four children!

In her functional medicine studies, intermittent fasting was a part of the program. In 2015, Dr. Anna began with a 16:8 protocol. She declares: “I have never felt more at home in my body than I do now.” She follows a ‘keto green’ way of eating.

Dr. Anna discusses the positive effects of IF for women, and how this lifestyle will help women immensely as they go through such major change. “IF will help you get in tune with your intuition during menopause,” she remarked.

Dr. Anna’s advice to the new IFer: It’s never too young or too old to get healthy. IF will improve the quality of your life. Detoxify your body during the fast, and nourish your body during the window.
