Rather watch and listen?

Many of my clients are in their menopausal years, so I was thinking of addressing the elephant in the room. Let’s pause for menopause and consider what mindset can benefit you best during this transition.


What are we talking about when we talk about menopause?

Premenopause is a series of hormonal changes that happen before menopause. This time in a woman’s life is marked by hormonal fluctuations that begin with changes in progesterone and estrogen blood levels. These changes can start as early as in your mid or late 30th when you are still young. You might or might not feel symptoms when your body begins the transition period. The premenopausal stage lasts until a year after your last period, at which time you are officially in menopause.

The symptoms of perimenopause are temporary. Once you reach menopause, the symptoms will subside.

what is perimenopause

Perimenopause a critical moment in a woman’s life

Perimenopause and menopause are not about aging in the sense that they are not caused by aging but instead unfold alongside aging. You might start perimenopause in your 30th when you are clearly young.

Perimenopause and menopause are critical windows for your health. Minor health problems that have been background irritation in the past might get amplified if not treated at this stage, leading to a reduced quality of life as you age. Think about it as you would think of weeds in your garden. If you don’t weed the garden when the weeds are young and small, the weeds will grow and spread, stealing resources from your herbs and flowers.

Menopause is a transition time. We are more vulnerable in times of transition as these changes can either be experienced as a crisis or they can be experienced as an opportunity. How we choose to interpret this phase significantly shapes our journey through this profound passage.


Perimenopause – It’s all in your mind 🧠

In the last couple of weeks, I went down the rabbit hole of menopause research. The language used by scientists and doctors to describe the transition women go through in menopause includes words like “reduction,” “diminish,” and so on.

However, society’s narrative of menopause as a conclusion doesn’t necessarily align with the individual experience. Yes, it marks the end of fertility, but one’s value transcends fertility. Menopause can be an opportunity for self-expression in different ways.

In the upcoming weeks, I’ll share insights on supporting your body during the perimenopausal transition and beyond, aiming to empower you to embrace this transformative journey with resilience and well-being.

Embracing menopause can mark a pivotal moment in steering the course of your well-being. The power to redefine your quality of life rests within your hands, presenting you with a unique opportunity for transformation.

This juncture is not a roadblock but a crossroads, where your body’s intrinsic ability to heal seeks your conscious attention and nurturing support. Recognizing this natural resilience can be the first step toward a positive shift in your overall health and vitality.

If you would like guidance on navigating this transformative phase and discovering the optimal ways to support your body, I invite you to a free consultation.
