Surviving The Transition From Perimenopause To Menopause with Maria Claps
For so long, it seemed like there was just this time of life women would suddenly hit – menopause – and everything went dark. There was really nothing you could do about it.
What a disservice to women! Not only is it not-as-simple as just hitting menopause (a little thing called perimenopause lasts much longer than menopause for many women), it’s also a lie that there’s nothing we can do to ease the transition. Plus, hitting menopause doesn’t mean your life has to be over – you can be just as a vital post-menopause as you are pre-menopause if you know the steps to take care of your body.
In this interview with Maria Claps, we cover it all:
- What perimenopause is all about
- How you know when you are transitioning into menopause
- How certain foods and supplements can change the whole game
- The biggest factor that impacts hormones, and
- What the real deal is with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).
