Women going through the peri-menopausal phase often feel completely helpless against the way nature is shifting their bodies.
Dryness, hot flushes, mood swings, loss of sexual appetite – it all can feel very overwhelming, and many women notice that it impacts their mental health and their relationships.
It’s common to feel a sense of grief- as if you’ve lost yourself.
Let’s turn this conversation around and put the control back in your hands! Our bodies are truly amazing, and while transformational changes can sometimes feel like a force to be reckoned with (remember your first few periods?), your peri-menopause experience CAN be a positive one.
For many, this phase of life is a reminder of the importance of health, self-care, and being more kind to yourself. It is a time to reflect on your strengths, your boundaries, and how far you have come. It’s a time to understand that the wisdom you have cultivated is irreplaceable, and that your journey is now all about using that cumulative experience to empower yourself and the people around you.
While we can’t turn back the clock, what we can do is help to settle the highs and lows of the menopausal transition.
Let’s focus on helping you feel like your vibrant, loveable, and beautiful self again!
