Are you experiencing Menopause symptoms?

There are 34 official symptoms of menopause and many more unofficial, these can include:

  • Mood swings
  • Irregular periods
  • Hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Fatigue
  • Alcohol sensitivity
  • Decreased libido
  • Vaginal dryness
  • Headaches (or worsening migraines)
  • Joint pain
  • Sore breasts
  • Generalised Itching
  • Difficulty sleeping...

The average age of menopause (the moment you have 12 months without a period) is 51.

This transition can take on average 7-10 years which means that as early as our late 30's we can start to experience symptoms related to the hormonal imbalance of menopause.

As with any transition in life there can be discomfort.

This discomfort comes from the roller coaster ride our sex hormones, Estrogen and Progesterone, are taking us on.

Not only can the ups and downs of our hormone levels cause discomfort we also need to protect our body from the eventual decline of these hormones which can affect our:

  • Bone density
  • Metabolism
  • Heart health

Menopause isn't a disease

Hopefully we will all reach the age to transition through menopause.

Menopause isn't a disease but it can cause dis-ease and rather than treating the annoying symptoms that can arise during this time I believe we need to take a step back and look at the whole picture.

One way we can help balance our Hormones and protect our body is through Good Nutrition.

Ensuring we are:

  • Eating enough
  • Consuming nutrients that will support us
  • Using food for self-care and not self-comfort

I teach my clients to NOURISH not PUNISH  their body and learn to listen to their bodies needs. 

This means they can balance their hormones, heal their metabolism and reach their health and well-being goals without restrictive dieting.

This is a process and can take time and support.

Learning to listen to hunger and satiety cues can help balance your hormones along with eating food rich in essential nutrients to support your body further at this time.

Snacking is not a 'bad' thing.  If you are hungry you need to fuel your body, the key is to do it in a way that supports your hormone and neurotransmitter function.

I have created the following recipe collection to take the guesswork out of which snacks to reach for.  The 14 recipes include:

  • Calcium - for bone health and Vitamin D absorption 
  • Magnesium - For sleep support
  • Protein - for muscle mass and metabolism
  • Healthy fats - for heart health
  • Phytoestrogens - for increasing declining Estrogen levels
