One of my besties brought me “The Longevity Book” by Cameron Diaz as a 45th birthday present and it was the catalyst towards setting a personal goal to reach my 50th birthday with as much knowledge as I could about healthy ageing. It was obvious to me 2 years into that goal that I was spending more and more time trying to figure out the symptoms I was experiencing with peri-menopause. And there really wasn’t a lot of sound advice other than to medicalise this chaotic life change.
My conversations with friends and colleagues increasingly focused around which symptoms we were experiencing but it was all done in a very “hush hush” manner or by laughing it off, all the while, going home in tears through lack of sleep, joint pain and sweating.
My love of all things science and the body, through a lifetime in the fitness industry, has propelled me to share this podcast so that women who are transitioning through menopause can find the information, support and inspiration they are seeking.
