In today’s OFM Podcast Dr. Linda Frazier joins Peter Defty in a conversation on the intricacies of women's health and their long term ramifications. 

While retired from a full time practice as a Pediatrician, Dr. Frazier continues to provide pediatric care for those who need it most, working a few days a month in the Sacramento Juvenile Detention Center and volunteering as a Pediatrician on mission trips to Central and South America. 

As importantly Dr. Frazier has the perspective of both an athlete and health professional who has been through the journey of health and performance long before arriving at OFM. As someone who ‘gets it’ as well as understands the ramifications of the conventional approaches to diet, nutrition, and exercise, especially when it comes to female health and performance. 

Dr. Frazier openly talks about her years following the conventional ‘healthy’ dietary advice of a high carbohydrate diet and how doing so resulted in being diagnosed with Celiac in 2005. The turning point was reading the Primal Blueprint which led Dr. Linda in the right direction eventually leading to Peter, VESPA and OFM. Within a few short years Linda has achieved a lifetime Personal Best time in the marathon at the age of 64 and completing an IronMan Triathlon at the age of 65.
