Let's be honest ladies, managing our health can be a minefield at times, especially without the information we need to fix us! It can all be so confusing, our hormones running wild and lots of conflicting information online on what to do and not to do, and many doctors uninterested in getting to the root cause of your problem. Symptoms linked to women's health such as PCOS, Endometriosis, Perimenopause and Menopause.
So many of my clients have experienced the brush off when visiting their GP with symptoms for these conditions and have been led to believe it's all in their head and there’s nothing they can do about it, apart from medicate a lot of the time.
This happens way too much. That's why I make it an integral part of my programmes to talk to women about their bodies and their health.
Today, I want to talk to you all about Menopuase.
Let's face it, Menopause can be difficult enough to navigate without being fobbed off by our Doctor or our workplace when we try to raise an issue. There is so much conflicting advice online that can make it difficult to know what is right and what isn't. It can be an alienating and isolating time but there are some things we can do to make it easier for you TODAY.
Some of my clients don't experience any symptoms of Menopause - yes, really! And I want the same for you...

While it is a normal biological process, the range of symptoms associated with menopause can significantly affect daily life. Adopting natural menopause management strategies can effectively ease these symptoms, enhancing overall well-being.
Menopause typically occurs in women between 45 and 55 years of age. It's a natural transition marked by the end of menstrual periods, confirmed after 12 months without menstruation. However women will go through perimenopause first, as much as 10 years before menopause. Common menopause symptoms include hot flushes, night sweats, concentration problems, poor memory, mood swings, and sleep disturbances, varying in severity among individuals.
