Dr. Molly Maloof is an expert in extending health span through her medical practice, her personal brand, and all of her educational and entrepreneurial endeavors. She provides personalized medicine to entrepreneurs, investors, and tech executives in Silicon Valley and teaches a course on health span in the Medical School at Stanford University, which she has transformed into an online course that will be launched to the public later this year.
In this episode, we go deep on hormones, trauma recovery, health span, and the science of love. She shares a funny story of what happened when she accidentally became in contact with a men’s dose of testosterone and how she’s researching the science of love, attraction, bonding, and more. She shares what she is learning, the reason she believes substances like psychedelics can help heal trauma, some tools to tune the nervous system back to safety and how trauma can affect all aspects of our life, including how we parent.
She’s a wealth of knowledge and I loved this conversation and I know you will, too.

This episode is brought to you by Wellnesse. That’s wellness with an e on the end, my line of non-toxic, family focused personal care products including haircare, oral care and deodorant. At my house, kids toothbrushes and kids strawberry toothpaste are by far the favorites. The toothbrushes come in a 3-pack of fun colors, which makes it easy for my kids to know which brush is theirs. The strawberry toothpaste tastes great so there aren’t any fights about teeth brushing, and I love that it’s formulated around hydroxyapatite, a naturally occurring mineral found in tooth enamel. All of our toothpastes use only EWG verified safe ingredients, are free of toxins, and are packed with ingredients that naturally support the oral microbiome for stronger, healthier, whiter teeth naturally. We also have a whitening toothpaste and a charcoal toothpaste. Check out these and all of our products at wellnesse.com.
