Today on the show I’m joined by Dr Izzy Smith, an Australian based Endocrinology Doctor with a passion for sharing health advice that is easy to digest.

Her mission is to promote evidenced-based advice on exercise, nutrition and medicine whilst busting silly health myths by calling out some of the dangerous fads in the wellness and weight loss industry.

When not working you can find Izzy on a run, or snuggling with her cute dachshund Arnold. 

Her authentic approach to health and wellbeing has lead to a growing presence on social media and influence in the space and I couldn’t be more excited for you guys to listen to our chat today.

In this episode Izzy and I discuss:

  • Her work as a doctor of endocrinology
  • The latest research surrounding bone health
  • How estrogen impacts bone breakdown and bone building processes
  • The impact of low energy availability/RED-S on multiple hormone systems within the body
  • How RED-S can increase risk of fractures even for those who have normal bone mineral density
  • The role that calcium and carbohydrates play in bone health
  • The 5 key lifestyle changes necessary to reverse bone loss after hypothalamic amenorrhea
  • What type of strength training is best for increasing bone mass
  • Whether it’s possible to reverse osteopenia and/or osteoporosis
  • Practical ways you can improve bone health if you do have low bone mineral density
