About this Event

Webinar #3 - Midlife, Menopause and Hormones

  • Have your periods become so heavy you're mopping up the bathroom?
  • Has the 3am wake up call entered your sleep pattern?
  • Are hot, then sweaty, then cold, then frustrated because it's so frustrating!?
  • What about joint pain, itchy skin or memory? Nothing good?

These could be early signs of the transition we call midlife and menopause where our hormonal changes are causing havoc with our body's chemistry causing all kinds of new symptoms that are massively disruptive to our lives.

And let's face it, NO-ONE likes their patterns interrupted!

Peri-menopause (the 2-10 years prior to menopause) can be quite a shock for many women as no-one seems to be talking about it. Typical symptoms are hot flushes, anxiety, sleeplessness, weight gain and many other depressing changes that make you wonder, "what the heck is going on with my body!!!"?

The thing is, we can't just keep doing the same thing. Menopause is a time of reckoning and what we've been doing to ourselves for a while, catches up with us.

Having said that, the withdrawal of our reproductive hormones heralds an exciting and empowering journey into the wild years of our 50s and 60s and the wise years of 70s and 80s. We just need to learn to navigate it.

In this 75-min webinar you will:

  • Gain an understanding of the biological changes of ageing occuring in our 40s and how to prepare for what comes next
  • Learn what's happening as the reproductive cycle ends, estrogen declines, and new hormones of insight and wisdom emerge
  • Discover how your brain's neurotransmitters change due to inflammation and poor lifestyle choices we've been making for a while, upsetting our hormones
  • Identify key triggers (liver health, stress levels, nutrient deficiencies and even dehydration) that cause our bodies to act out it's discontent.
  • Understand how poor blood sugar management and unexamined stress levels can lead to exhaustion, mood changes, weight gain, sleep disturbances and so many more uncomfortable symptoms
  • Discover how the world of natural medicine and personal development, when effectively applied, can offer comfort and relief, while still allowing your journey into your 50s and beyond to continue as it's meant to.
