Must listen: Period Party Podcast Hormone Repair for Women Over 40
So I listen to a LOT of podcasts, usually 3 or 4 a week and they are almost always about women’s health or mental health. This month I LOVED the Period Party conversation between Women’s Health Coach Nicole Jardim and Naturopathic Dr Lara Briden about ‘Hormone Repair for Women Over 40’. Why? Because, (as Davina's documentary recently showed), SO many women don’t really know what perimenopause is; when it begins or what we can expect, the four phases of perimenopause, and most importantly, what we can do to help ourselves. This one’s a keeper!
Must read: ’Hormone Repair Manual’ by Dr Lara Briden.
This newly released book is THE go-to women’s health guide for ALL perimenopausal women (Generation X-ers, I’m looking at you!). Lara generously draws from her vast experience (20yrs+) in the ever changing field of women’s health. She discusses all manner of hormonal conditions and targeted treatment strategies to help navigate our second puberty effectively. It’s not just hot sweats and periods MIA; we need to watch out for insulin resistance and our thyroid being knocked out of balance which can result in unwanted inches.Fear not, knowledge is power and this book will leave you forewarned, forearmed and able to play to your strengths this month and every month! This is a must read for anyone with a womb or a daughter.
