Food and nutrition for menopause
When I started feeling that I was entering the first stages of perimenopause I was only 43. Over the years I had watched many of my female friends who were older than me suffer through this stage of their lives. Some were immediately prescribed HRT as soon as they had an inkling of a hot flush, others tried the natural pathway of wild yams and other supplements but to tell you the truth it was very haphazard and someway they were just expected to muddle their way through.
What I learnt from my observing my friends and then with the consequent research and experiences as a wellness expert caring for our clients is that most women do not think about modifying what they eat or how food effects their metabolisms to get relief during perimenopause and menopause.
My experience is that it is vital.
