Menopause used to be called “the-change-of life” and aptly so, as it is a time in a woman’s life that often marks enormous transitions, physically, emotionally and often even socially. Perimenopause is the period of time building up to menopause when these changes start to manifest. It can begin anytime from early 40s to early 50s for most women and can last between 2 and 8 years.
During perimenopause, a woman may start to experience some or all of the following symptoms:
longer or shorter menstrual cycle
heavier or lighter periods
hot flashes and night sweats
mood changes, including depression and anxiety
weight gain or weight loss
changes in memory and concentration capacity
These symptoms can be less impactful if women understand the process and are prepared well in advance for the challenges as well as the rewards of this time. Stress, poor diet, fluctuating blood sugar levels, environmental toxins and deficiency in certain vital nutrients are the biggest contributors to the hormonal imbalances that can worsen perimenopause symptoms. All our hormonal systems “dance together”, meaning an imbalance in one causes another to either upregulate or down regulate.
What if we told you that there is a possibility of enjoying and “embracing the change"? A way to learn more about what happens to the female body during this time and we can adapt or diet to help reduce menopausal symptoms.
Well, we have designed a master class to educate women on the changes to mind and body that occur during menopause and equip you with practical tips and options to manage menopause
This class will enable you:
To develop a deeper understanding of the hormonal changes that occur in menopause and the impact this can have on other aspects of your health.
To understand the foods and lifestyle factors that can intefere with out hormones in a positive and negative way
To appreciate where nutrient deficiencies may occur and when supplements may be required
To develop a new love for food and nutrition and how we can use it to fuel the female body
To know what type of exercise actually helps you during this time
After this masterclass we promise you will:
Enjoy a new-found freedom, free from the roller coaster of monthly hormonal fluctuations,
Explore new strengths and talents that life may not have afforded the privilege of exploring before this
Befriend the woman within, who has journeyed so well thus far
This masterclass will be 2 hours in length including a Q+A session at the end to answer any questions you might have. You will also be provided with a our "Embracing the Change" EBook and recipe booklet.
Masterclass will be held on the 29th of September at 6pm
