Bio (Short Version) (see long version below)
Dr Carol Peters-Tanksley is a licensed medical doctor, ordained Doctor of Ministry, author and speaker. She has practiced medicine for over 20 years as an OB-Gyn physician and Reproductive Endocrinologist. Dr Carol is sometimes known as “Doctor-Doctor” with her degrees in both medicine and ministry. Her blog is read by thousands of people monthly from around the world. She enjoys speaking to churches, women’s and civic groups, health students and professionals, and others. She makes her home in Austin, Texas.
Dr Carol enjoys speaking to various groups on health, spirituality, and relationships. Some of her most-requested topics include:
- The Connections Between Health and Spirituality. Your physical health impacts your mental health, your relationships, and your spiritual health. And your spiritual health impacts the other areas as well. In this presentation I talk about integrative health and present practical ways to improve wellbeing at the intersection of body, mind, and soul.
- Ending Marriage Misery. Differences between men and women, conflict over sexuality, and trouble communicating make marriage painful. In this presentation I give stories, real-life examples, and practical tools to help husbands and wives connect with each other again in 4 specific areas and experience real and lasting intimacy.
- Women’s Health and Spirituality. In this presentation I address women’s health issues that are often accompanied by shame to help women to experience healing physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Stories and vignettes bring up issues such as abortion, domestic violence, sexually transmitted diseases, divorce, and more.
- Christian Women and Hormones. Menopause, infertility, PMS, and other hormonally challenging issues for women can be difficult to manage. In this presentation I give a Christian perspective on the physical, mental/emotional, and spiritual ways to manage women’s hormonal issues.
