Perimenopause to Menopause – A Time of Transition 

With Naturopath, Toni Baker


 

Perimenopause - the period that links a women’s reproductive years to menopause. An emotionally challenging time because, as well experiencing many physical symptoms, women often experience feelings of grief, loss and a sense of death and rebirth.


More Details

In this webinar, we will learn about all the different symptoms, ranging from moodiness and irritability, sleep issues, bloating, breast tenderness, weight gain, chronic headaches, frequent urination, cycle changes and night sweats.

 

Till today, society has wrongly misinterpreted this period as an ending. Although menopause does signify an end to what we know in terms of the reproductive stage of life, it’s important to acknowledge that this can be a time of expansive freedom and new beginnings. And there is so much we can do to help with the physical transition.

 

We will look at the following areas, how they affect your hormones and what you can do to support your body naturally:


HPA Dysfunction (stress) 

Endocrine Glands i.e. thyroid or pancreas 

The Microbiome 

Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDC’s) 

Diet and Lifestyle 

Treatment and supplements 

Functional testing


With the right knowledge and support this can be a positive transition to be embraced not feared!
