#55: Dasha Maximov – What you didn’t know about Women’s Health and Why it is Important

by | Aug 5, 2020 | Health & Fitness

I got to interview one of my favorite humans and a trusted advisor on an extremely important subject: Women’s health! 

It was a shocker for me to learn that an important part of health research is only done on men despite women being overrepresented within the disease areas. 


During this episode, Dasha Maximov and I discuss why that is the case and some concrete strategies for optimizing women’s health. It is a must listen for all my female listeners and highly recommended for the men as awareness is a virtue. 

Dasha is the founder of the female health community WHEALTH and recognized as a thought leader in the field. She was part of getting the first Health Optimization Summit in London up running as the COO. She is also one of my trusted advisors for big life questions and most things related to health.
