The Perimenopausal Mamas Podcast
Helping perimenopausal moms raise healthy kids and navigate the bumpy road of unpredictable hormonal changes that can interfere with mood, energy, weight, sleep, focus and vitality.
About Perimenopausal Mamas
Our goal is to educate you on your hormones and empower you to take control of your own (and your kids’) health. We will share our knowledge and experiences as mamas and Naturopathic Doctors, while also providing cutting-edge info from experts in the health and parenting worlds.
Dr. Toni Reid
Dr. Toni Reid, ND enjoys working with women, men and children to address fatigue, digestive concerns, mood and hormone balance, weight and stress management, prenatal and postnatal health, allergies and food sensitivities.
Dr. Lisa Weeks
Dr. Lisa Weeks is a Naturopathic Doctor and works with many mamas who struggle with burnout and fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, overwhelm, fertility challenges and hormonal imbalances. She treats many infants and kids with digestive concerns, frequent illnesses and skin rashes.
In this episode, Dr. Lisa and Dr. Toni discuss how small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (aka SIBO) can be an undiagnosed cause for IBS and digestive issues (such as gas, bloating, heartburn, nausea and irregular stools).
Up to 84% of people with IBS also have SIBO, so it’s thought to be an underlying cause. SIBO occurs when abnormally high numbers of bacteria found in the small intestine produce excess amounts of gas which leads to bloating, pain, constipation and/or diarrhea, nutrient deficiencies and more.
Listen in to discover how to test for it and what you can do about it.
In today’s episode, Dr. Lisa discusses everyday tools for feelings and kindness with educator Tara Gratto to support parents. As parents, we have a whole range of feelings and our patience is tested over and over. Social and emotional intelligence is a skill like learning a language – it needs to be practiced! Listen in to learn more.

Great information! So grateful for this podcast and the authenticity and information it provides!!!
