A just in time.shout out for World Menopause Day
An inevitable llifestage which all women will go through at some point.
My main point is that this is not a woman's thing at all...it happens to women but the impact is far reaching and in the spirit of supporting everyone to be the best versions of them..this life stage has to be understood by all.
Which is what my plan (along with the fabulous @thedigitalgp) is for 2020...we want to start educating and empowering workplaces to help them be menopause literate.
Getting sick in our house is something we truly try to prevent as much as possible. As a mom - well first we have no time for that 🙅🏼♀️ and second, establishing a healthy routine for my little one is so important from the get go! Sometimes getting sick is inevitable (airplanes/airports, doctors offices and hospitals being the worst, followed by schools and daycares) but there are some wonderful habits we can instill to keep our immune system strengthened.
These preventative measures should be practiced throughout the whole year so when flu season rolls around, your “time of month” or high stress periods, your immune system is already on high defense without going into overdrive.
When we do need some extra supplement support, we do love swinging by @earthfare - we truly trust their quality brands. @sourcenaturals has a great product that also helps boost my immune defense system if I feel like something could be creeping in!
To read about what I do take when I’m under the weather and what you can do to prevent getting sick (and to be pro active for your family), click the link in my bio and join the VIP list! 🍁Sharing all the deets there for y’all!

It’s World Menopause Day and I don’t see any hashtags trending.
It must be a pretty new thing, but we need to bring so much awareness.
Millions of women are suffering in silence.
For some reason, we’re afraid and ashamed to discuss what’s going on.
It could be because menopause is associated with older women.
I can tell you, I know several women who started menopause in their 30s.
For them it’s even worse, because most of their friends aren’t going through the same thing.
They will, at some point. Every woman will.
So why are we talking about menopause in private social media groups, instead of openly?
We wouldn’t keep pregnancy quiet, right?
Leave me your thoughts as to why we don’t talk about menopause openly.
Your best years! Menopause can be filled with a lot of ups and downs. With acupuncture we can ensure a smooth ride so you can enjoy your best life.
Common menopause symptoms that we help with;
1. Hot Flashes
3. Irregular Cycles
4. Aches and Pains (Yes, hormone shifts cause real body pain; neck, back, and joint stiffness is real.)
6. Heart Racing/ Palpitations
If menopause symptoms are causing you to miss out on the joy of your best years, STOP suffering, we can help!
I’m can do a couple toes to bar until like ring around the rosie and I. Fall. Down.
But I like toes to bar. Doing things I’m not great at gives me a reason to get better.
If you have a prolapse and you want to RX these, here’s what you need to know.
These bad boys require a lot of core and pelvic floor control. So if you’re feeling pressure or bulging down below as your legs raise to touch the bar, watch how your breathing.
If you’re bearing down, the air in your belly (intra abdominal pressure) is being forced down as well. So if you’re feeling like a tampon is pushing though you vagina, this is likely what’s happening.
Also watch for rib thrusting. It’s natural for your upper body body compensate in order for you to make this exercise happen. If this works for you, cool beans. But if you’re feeling lots of pressure, try keeping your eyes a head of you instead of looking at the bar.
Exhale as you bring your toes up to the bar. Believe it or not, sometime breath holding is the culprit as air is pushing down on the vaginal muscles.
Now don’t tell anyone, but I probably would have scaled this workout. Thrusters would have had me all in, but toes to bar and double unders are still a work in progress. But I’m not partaking in the #crossfitopen2020 this time around.
There were many of you asking how to RX these thangs and I aim to please. So here I am pleasing to the best of my ability 😆
This was testing a few months back. And I was pretty darn proud of this accomplishment. I hope you’re proud of yours today!
If you don’t know wtf a pelvic floor is, I have a post from earlier this week to check out over at @terrellbaldock - you can’t miss it!
If you try these tips out, can you let me know either way by sharing in the comments below or sending me a DM, puleeeeeease? You would be doing me a huge favour!

The 18th October 2019 marks World Menopause Day - to raise awareness and break down the taboos around the condition every woman eventually faces.
According to premature menopause charity The Daisy Network, premature menopause (or premature ovarian insufficiency as it is becoming increasingly known) affects 110,000 women aged 12-40, in the UK. That’s around one in every 1,000 women in their 30s and one in every 10,000 in their 20s – not including those women for whom the condition goes undiagnosed.

HOW TO BALANCE FITNESS WITH THE #MENOPAUSE AND PERI-MENOPAUSE by @thegymstarter⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Here’s a little #repost for #WorldMenopauseDay 👈👈👈 let’s talk about it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Firstly I want to thank @syattfitness and @kimschlagfitness for empowering me to put this post up. If you haven't listened to Jordan's Podcast..do it once you have finished reading this post. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have a few clients going through Peri-Menopause and Menopause, and I think its really important that we start opening up this dialogue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The overarching thing to remember is that Menopausal symptoms will make you feel very tired, very confused and you will be going through an enormous change when you do. Whenever a huge thing in your life is changing, it makes eveyrthing harder. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One huge change is that sleep will be wildly compromised. That will make your energy levels for working out and your nutrition really hard, really really hard. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So if you are experiencing this at the moment then you have to re-assess what you expect to fo in the gym. Ergo turn the gym into a place where you have fun, as opposed to struggle through what you are doing, this means feel free to take it easy in the gym, just explore what your body can do some days...and expect huge differences in this day to day, and as that is happening, be honest. Be honest with yourself, with your trainer, with your family as to why you are struggling, ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There are lots of symptoms, that will effect everything. Take your pressure off, and try to listen to yourself. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Fitness isn't all about Fat Loss. Its more so about balance and love. Which you will find if you work pressure free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Please tag a friend below who is finding it hard atm...

Today is #worldmenopauseday . I was 28 when I was told that my ovaries had failed and I’d effectively gone through menopause, and if I’m honest I’m only just now (at 37) considering the entirety of what this means. Early menopause is much more common than people realise - 1/100 women under 40 go through it; 1/1000 under 30.
The most obvious impact of early menopause is on a woman’s ability to have children, and I’m unbelievably lucky that donor egg IVF worked out for us. But it’s more than that. I don’t have a cycle, a natural rhythm that connects me to my body. I don’t understand what hormones are and are not present in my body. I don’t know what effect the menopause has had on my bones, my energy levels, my sex drive, my moods. I don’t just want to take HRT for the next 15 years. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that I’ve been drawn to body-oriented coaching and neurobiology - I want to understand my body and how it shapes my experience as a woman and as a human being.
So I’ve decided to do something about it. I’m meeting a holistic practitioner next week who specialises in female hormones and re-connecting someone to their body. I’ll probably share some of the experience here, because let’s be honest, I don’t really keep much private 😂😂
But for today, I just wanted to join the forces to shine a light on #menopause . There’s a weird amount of shame and discomfort around it (as with anything to do with Women’s Problems), but everyone who reads this will either experience it themselves, or support a woman who experiences it. None of us are alone 😊
According to recent studies, about 20% of the working population is likely to begin symptoms of menopause or is already experiencing them. That’s a very large number of women going through these changes at work, who are most likely not getting the support they deserve. 👊🏼
Here's to the women in their midlives. You Are Warriors. Tag a fellow menopause warrior in the comments and give her some love. 💕

It’s World Menopause Day!
Today is a day to talk about Menopause and how it impacts women in their day to day life. 👩
Everyone talks about Menopause and that it will happen to us women at some point. But what should we expect? How do we know it is happening? Where can we get the right information? 💭
Here at Cheam Wellness Group all of our providers can help! You have access to so many methods of care to help you with managing your menopause symptoms all in one place! 🤗
Our Naturopath’s do hormone testing and make a plan to balance your hormones.
Our acupuncturist uses techniques to balance hormones reducing symptoms like insomnia, mood swings and hot flashes.
Our Pelvic Floor Physiotherapist can teach us how to activate our muscles to reduce pain during intercourse and painful prolapses.
Our chiropractor uses spinal adjustments to keep our nervous system function optimally.
And our counsellor can help with anxiety and depression.
🗣 It’s world menopause day and we want to clear some things up 🗣
Menopause is not a disease, it’s a natural part of aging. It may cause symptoms that can be treated with medicine or managed with lifestyle change, but it’s *nothing* to be afraid of. And, contrary to popular belief, many women actually report an increase in libido after they’ve reached menopause!
And now, back to our regular programming:
For many women, the terms pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), periods, and perimenopause signify times of difficulty. Others — more than you might think — aren’t completely sure what they mean and what to expect when going through these experiences. Whether unsure, anxious, or simply curious, it’s important to have a handle on these concepts so as to better understand what’s going on inside your body
Women go through several important stages in their reproductive lives. The first are the reproductive years after a woman’s first period. The second is the perimenopausal stage, which is defined as the period of time where a woman transitions as she approaches menopause. The point where she has not had a menstrual period for a year is defined as menopause, and is the third stage

A repost from @lisafewphysiotherapy ... Today is world menopause day.
The menopause is a natural part of ageing that usually occurs between 45 and 55 years of age, as oestrogen levels decrease. Symptoms can vary greatly, some women will have very mild or no symptoms at all whilst lots of women will describe symptoms such as fatigue, hot flushes, weight gain, forgetfulness, poor sleep and feelings of anxiousness. As well as this menopause and decreased levels of oestrogen can also have a big impact on our bone health, our heart and cardiovascular system and our musculoskeletal system. So what can we do to help with menopausal symptoms? Diet can play a really important role and there are lots of foods that are high in oestrogen such as flax seeds, sesame seeds, nuts, dried fruit. Exercise also plays an important role in maintaining healthy bones and a healthy cardiovascular system. Menopause will happen to all women at some point in their lives and if we can enter into this phase of our life armed with all the information it can help make it less daunting and less of an emotional rollercoaster. If you are struggling it is definitely worth talking to your GP or a women’s health physiotherapist. #womenshealth#menopause#womenshealthphysiotherapy

I just want to show you that showing up consistently - even when you don’t to - pays off.
Do something today your future self will thank you for 😘
Today is World Menopause Day. I wanted to make sure I acknowledged this day because I don’t think there is enough open conversation about menopause or especially perimenopause. The road to menopause can be quite bumpy for many. We need to start talking about our experiences, our symptoms, our emotions, how we can feel completely not like ourselves. There are things we can do to thrive on our road to menopause through food, lifestyle, stress management, movement and testing to see what is really happening within our bodies. To those who have reached menopause I applaud you! I ask you to share how your journey was, what you did to manage or eliminate symptoms. How long was your journey? Please share any advice you might have!
Today’s marks the 10th Anniversary of World Menopause Day! This day was established in 2009 by the International Menopause Society. It is a worldwide awareness call for women who face health issues when approaching, during and beyond the menopause.
It is Menopause Awareness Day! When most women think about menopause they think about hot flashes and bone loss. What is not being talked about enough are the genito-urinary symptoms of menopause (GSM), which will affect every single woman as her circulating hormones begin to decline. The truth is the average life span of a woman is now 82, and the average age menopause begins is 55. It is important that women educate themselves about how to maintain their vulvovaginal health, including their pelvic floor muscles! Check out this #PHRCBlog by Rachel Daof for more information!
6 months ago I started taking #hrt for #menopause . I can quite honestly say that it is the single best decision I have ever made.
I feel like I have my life back. I was on the brink of... I can’t bear to think back... Grateful that I found a GP who ‘heard’ me... sounds dramatic... but he saved my sanity and really... my life ❤️
. @amanda.thebe thank you for being an inspiration... you gave me the guts to take control 😘 #worldmenopauseday#perimenopause
I can live better with Menopause because I've launched Fiery and Fabulous to support women. It meant that I did lots of research and I'm using HRT, keeping healthy and chatting to fab friends to manage my symptoms.

Hair up, bra off, reading about breast cancer and HRT
Today is World Menopause day which seems a very appropriate today for the British Medical Journal to publish this very SENSIBLE commentary on the current frenzy around breast can we risk & HRT. This is something that’s always doing the rounds in the media but a recent Lancet paper really stirred things up lately by stating the risk was higher than previously thought. Subsequent to this, the MHRA (drug safety folk) issued an alert to all doctors stating they must communicate breast cancer risk to their patients considering or taking HRT.
No one wants breast cancer.
No doctor wants their patient to get breast cancer.
But as a result lots of women are being scared away, and some doctors doctors also appear to be scared (understandably given the scary headlines and alerts) to take or prescribe treatment for a serious condition that is way more than just hot sweats and a dry vagina.
Anxiety, memory problems, sleep disturbance, loss of sex drive...these are all very common, debilitating symptoms that can be helped by appropriate HRT use.
As the authors of the commentary rightly state some very important, underexposed facts:
1️⃣There is no increased risk of death from breast cancer
2️⃣HRT reduces all-cause mortality and cardiac-related death
3️⃣HRT reduces risk of bone loss and fragility fractures
4️⃣Young women who stop HRT are likely to adversely affect their long term health and raise risk of death
It’s impossible to give anyone their personal risk of breast cancer. I personally find the British Menopause Society Infographic (photo 4) useful to help my patients decide how they might be able to reduce their own personal risk of breast cancer, such as decreasing alcohol intake or increasing physical activity. But ultimately it’s what the individual feels comfortable with, but I strongly believe that every woman deserves to have that personalised conversation with a healthcare professional.
As the authors finish with... “We need to treat individual women, not statistics”
When do I know that I'm having a hot flash?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Oh you're going to know about it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
During a hot flash, you’ll likely feel that your body temperature is rising.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hot flashes affect the top half of your body. It may affect every single part of that top half of your body! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You may even turn red in color or become blotchy. You may feel the temperature rising! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This rush of heat could lead to sweating, heart palpitations, and feelings of dizziness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

This version of cauliflower rice is PACKED with protein! Eggs and albacore tuna make this rice the perfect side to your meal when you’re on a mission to slim down.

Insomnia affects approximately one-third of the adult population. Shocking, we know! When we aren't getting enough sleep, it affects our everyday life including our ability to work or be available for family and friends, and it can have detrimental effects on our overall health.
Valerian root is a herb that is widely used for helping with both falling asleep and the quality of your sleep.
While we love to provide you with valuable health information, we also caution you against starting something new without speaking to your nurse practitioner to ensure its right for you. Sleep issues can stem from a variety of causes and we want to make sure we are assessing the root cause before beginning treatment.

It’s World Menopause Day! I’m part of the gang (temporarily thanks to zoladex).
For me, the hot flushes & mood swings are so crazy #sweatyupperlip and I really think I get brain fog. Or maybe I just blame the zoladex when I do dumb stuff 😂
I’m still a fan of the zoladex though 💉💉! I would take these symptoms any day over the endo pain 💔🎗🎗
Currently 11 weeks pain free 😍
Happy world menopause day from a peri menopausal female. The menopause is the natural process women go through as they reach a certain age and is a normal part of life. This change in the normal pattern of the menstrual cycle may be accompanied by psychological symptoms such as mood swings, irritability, lowering of self-confidence as well as hot flushes and night sweats. These, and other menopausal symptoms, may be experienced for a few months or years.
Many people describe this phase as ‘going through the menopause’, ‘the change’ or ‘the change of life’. Scientifically, it is referred to as the peri-menopause – the period leading up to the menopause.

You can’t go back and change the beginning...
BUT there is so much you can do to change your health outcome today!
If we want to change how we feel we have to change our daily actions 👊.
During my late-twenties, I was chronically tired, 35-pounds overweight, constantly cranky, and oftentimes feeling super unmotivated. I felt like I had lost control of my body while driving myself into the ground. Caffeine ☕️ became the key to surviving each day.
I realized that I needed to change my lifestyle if I wanted to feel like my old self again. I was ready to open new doors.
I started with simple changes. I began eating more plants and cooking at home. Leafy green vegetables became a staple in my diet. Then, I focused on yoga, dance, and fun exercises that I enjoyed. My stress level decreased and my energy increased, the excess weight started to melt off, and I began to feel like myself again 🙌.
Changing your habits to open new doors doesnt have to feel overwhelming 😫, just start with 1-2 rituals and habits.
Over time you will love these new changes and want to bring on more. If you are looking for ideas and guidance to open new doors, check out the #eohormonesummit by registering for free today 👉 www.drmariza.com/summit or go to my profile link ❤️

It’s menopause awareness day 🧪
I was put on medication to throw my body into menopause for 16 months on my 25th birthday 💉Now I know there’s tons of awareness about how awful menopause can be when women naturally go through it but being induced automatically into this state has got to be 1000,000 times worse 🙈 I’d like to remember these hideous hot flushes (not forgetting the insomnia, itchy skin, sickness, depression and everything else) as a quick trip to the tropics just without the sunshine and sea breeze 🥵 Never again, not for another few years anyway. 🌼 #womenwithendometriosis#menopause#endometriosis
