Q :Many women in their forties and fifties are chronically ill and use infusion therapies to cope with their illnesses. Some experience lower levels of energy and sluggish metabolisms as a result of their illnesses. Are there natural diuretic remedies or exercises that can assist with these ailments?
A : Ageing can cause changes in our bodies and can alter how our bodies respond to illnesses. When metabolism decreases we are losing bone and muscle mass. Our energy levels deplete but power walking, for example, is exercise beneficial to our bodies. Hydration is key. Our bodies are made up of mostly water, and when we are properly hydrated we can rest, restore and rejuvenate. When we compromise our hydration we compromise our health. Health is wealth. Food is fuel. Our bodies are like sports cars and we should only use premium fuel.
Q : How does your Kathy Kaehler website "Better Living Expert (™)" keep information fresh and informative for young adult women?
A : A major benefit of continuing education and current certification in health and fitness allows me to stay up-to-date on the breaking fitness and medical research and news. To bridge the communication gap with young adult women, with the millennial, requires empowering them with informative information within the fitness and health space.
Q :Why do many women shy away from the concept "fit and sexy?"
A : Many women associate being sexy with outward appearance. Women who embrace themselves and provide self love to themselves, no matter their outward physical shape, ethnicity or age understand the diamond that she really is. The title of my radio show "Fit & Sexy for Life" comes from my book Fit and Sexy for Life: The Hormone-Free Plan for Staying Slim, Strong, and Fabulous in Your Forties, Fifties, and Beyond . I discuss how women's bodies change as we become older, but what should never change is a woman's willingness to love herself and her love for her life.
Q : Who do you consider yourself a contender for?
A : Ultimately, I want women to feel, no matter who they are, that we (women) are unique and there are no one else like us. If I can bring courage to help women embrace this then I believe there is no stopping what women can do professionally, emotionally and spiritually.
