Know your options
Taking responsibility for your own body, understanding what happens before, during and after menopause and knowing what your options are to change, manage or improve things is an important part of self-love and self-care. But with so many sources available today, where do you start?
You will have your own questions, circumstances, fears and experiences that you will want guidance and direction on. So I encourage you to do your research. I also encourage you to consult your GP and talk about menopause in the context of you … they deal with patients’ struggles and questions every day and are likely to be able to help you or point you in the direction of the person or organisation who can.
In doing my own research, I have found many useful and interesting resources both on and offline, and for such a taboo subject it’s great to know that the information is there when you are ready to learn.
Here’s just a few of the people, websites, books and/or organisations that I found most helpful:
Marcelle Pick, NP, is passionate about transforming the way women experience healthcare through an integrative approach. She co-founded the world renowned Women to Women Clinic in 1983 with the vision to not only treat illness, but also help support her patients in pro-actively making healthier choices to prevent disease. She has successfully treated thousands of individuals through her unique approach to wellness.
In her best-selling book, Is It Me or My Hormones?: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly about PMS, Perimenopause, and All the Crazy Things That Occur with Hormone Imbalance, Marcelle delves into the often misunderstood world of female hormonal imbalance.
Sharing her personal struggles and her experiences with patients, Marcelle helps you understand how the right diet, exercise, supplements, herbs, and psychological support, occasionally complemented with bioidentical hormones, can free you from hormone disruption.
Perimenopause and menopause are also subjects she writes about on a regular basis here on her blog:
Jill Shaw Ruddock
Jill Shaw Ruddock, CBE is author of The Second Half of Your Life, Founder and Chairman, The Second Half Foundation and Chairman and Chief Executive, The Second Half Centre.
Her book The Second Half of Your Life is written especially for women over 50, based on the science of hormones, using the changes around menopause as the trigger to get to the best years of your life. The book has been heralded as “one of the most important women’s books for a decade”, “ground-breaking”, “inspirational” and “the manual for women in the second half of their life.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a visionary pioneer and a leading authority in the field of women’s health and wellness, which includes the unity of mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Internationally known for her empowering approach to women’s health and wellness, Dr. Northrup teaches women how to thrive at every stage of life.
Her New York Times best-selling book, The Wisdom of Menopause: The Complete Guide to Physical and Emotional Health During The Change, has been embraced by women everywhere, including Oprah Winfrey, who sought Dr. Northrup’s wisdom when she turned 50 and faced “The Big M.” In this New York Times bestseller, Dr. Northrup once again challenged convention with inspiring insights—the “change” is not a collection of symptoms to be fixed, but a mind/body revolution, which brings tremendous opportunity for happiness.
