056: Dr. Mindy Pelz on Keto Diets and Intermittent Fasting for Women

Apr 29

Dr. Mindy Pelz, DC is crazy passionate about helping families stay healthy. For the past 23 years, she has been in the health trenches with busy, overscheduled families. She has built one of the largest holistic health clinics in Silicon Valley with patients coming to her from all over the world for her customized ketobiotic, fasting, detox, and nutritional programs. Her focus is to give families simple and effective health tools that have all members of the family thriving.

Her bestselling book, The Reset Factor, was released in 2015, giving people access to a clear step-by-step path to creating a healthy, vibrant, energy-filled life free from disease and suffering. The launch of her book ignited a “Resetter tribe,” an online group of like-minded people all supporting each other, exchanging health ideas, and cheering each other on to better health. Once a month Dr. Mindy leads her Resetter tribe through a free Fast Training Week, where all community members practice different styles of fasting together.

Raising two active teens of her own, Dr. Mindy knows what it is like to balance a healthy keto lifestyle with a demanding private practice, and a busy family schedule. As a perimenopausal woman, she also has found that women in their 40’s and 50’s need to incorporate the ketogenic diet differently to ensure proper hormonal balance. Her new book on Keto, Fasting, and Women is set to release in the Summer of 2019.
