Archived interview is now available for listening. Great information. Great doctor incorporating women’s perspectives and education in her practice.
Coming up on the next Holy Hormones Honey! Podcast
It was such a delight to interview this esteemed professional – who is combining her professional education as a doctor with a woman’s perspective on healing the issues at hand. If you think you will be hearing how your libido defines your personality – this is not the interview. If you are interested in getting your libido back (and it all starts in the brain – the motherboard) then Dr. Hoppe will share information on the underlying conditions that affect your sex drive – along with intimacy and a willingness on your partner’s part to be participatory in the “foreplay” that leads up to sex – including but not limited to: putting the kids to bed, romance – a night out, helping with chores. Dr. Hoppe and I also agree that if women increase their level of health – there is no need to us to be popping the pink Viagra pill that is being pushed on ALL women to enhance their sexual drive.
Dr. Diana Hoppe, an obstetrician and gynecologist, is the founder of Amazing Over 40 Inc. (www.amazingover40.com), a health coaching certification program for women. She also is an author and speaker who has been featured on a number of TV shows, including “Dr. Oz.”
After struggling with my own weight, attempting various diet plans and gaining the weight back each time, I decided to start a new diet and wellness program. A program which included cleansing the body of toxins to achieve weight loss and management.
I achieved my weight loss goal of 18 pounds 24 months ago and maintained it ever since. With my knowledge of nutrition, movement and life balance, I knew I needed to teach women how they could get the same results as me.
Recognizing the need for women over 40 to take better care of their health, I developed the Amazing Over 40™ Health Coaching program. Through this program, hundreds of health coaches will be given with tools to help other women transform their health through weight loss maintenance and the implementation of healthy lifestyle.
If you are interested in becoming a health coach – or even if you want to learn more about your own health – then this coaching program may be for you. And you do not have to be over 40 to participate… nor is this limited to just women.
Women’s lives are fuller and richer than ever, but often at the expense of sexual intimacy.

Dr. Diana Hoppe is a distinguished physician in Obstetrics/Gynecology, highly respected clinical researcher and popular public speaker. Interestingly, as a child, Dr. Diana dreamed of becoming a veterinarian specializing in small pets. Her love for animals led her to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Zoology and she graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of California, Berkeley in 1984. While at U.C. Berkeley, she volunteered at Cowell’s Women’s Hospital, working with nurse practitioners performing physical exams and providing contraceptive counseling. It was there that she realized her true calling for the field of women’s health. Dr. Hoppe earned her medical degree at the University of California, San Diego, where she also completed her internship and residency in Obstetrics/Gynecology. Having been raised and trained in Southern California, wanderlust filled her soul so she decided to embark on the adventurous journey of locum tenens where she explored various parts of our country, from Bismarck, North Dakota, to Winona, Minnesota, to Newport, Vermont. These travel experiences awakened her sense of curiosity and exploration for the country as well as the world.
In 1994, she returned to Southern California and practiced with group practicing before deciding to embark on her own private practice. She co-founded Pacific Coast Women’s Health in 1998 which became a thriving practice and earned her the acclaim of San Diego’s Top Doctors in Ob/Gyn in October 2005. Shortly thereafter, Dr. Hoppe began doing international clinical trials in numerous areas of women’s health, including menopause, peri-menopause and libido.
In April 2010, Dr. Hoppe released her well-received book, Healthy Sex Drive, Healthy You: What Your Libido Reveals About Your Life,which received the award for best Published Non-fiction, Self-Help and Inspiration in June 2011 and was a finalist in the Benjamin Franklin Awards in Interior Design in May 2011.
She has appeared on numerous local and national television and radio shows, including a recent segment on the Dr. Oz Show, an interview with Dr. Christiane Northrup on Hay House radio. She is a frequent contributor to women’s health magazines, including Vogue, Women’s Health Magazine, Fit Pregnancy and Brides Magazine.
