    Becoming Menopoised with Nicki Williams: It's Not You, it's Your Hormones - How Menopause Affects Your Body and Mind.

    Nicki Williams is a pioneer in busting taboos around menopause. As an award winning nutritionist, author and speaker, Nicki has changed the way we talk about hormones and nutrition, to help women of all ages to reclaim their health and feel better than ever. Something so needed for anyone entering peri/menopause.

    After failing to find any medical help for her health issues herself in her early 40’s, Nicki discovered that she could turn things around using diet, lifestyle and natural supplements. This led her to founding Happy Hormones for Life, where she and her expert team use state of the art hormone and other health testing to identify the root cause of symptoms so that they can resolve imbalances for good.

    Becoming Menopoised with Rebekah Brown - How Menopause Can Be Your Superpower

    Becoming Menopoised with Rebekah Brown - How Menopause Can Be Your Superpower

    We love it when a woman on a mission makes such an impact and that is an understatement when that woman is Rebekah Brown.

    Turned away by her GP because she was ‘too young’ to have symptoms of menopause, Rebekah she found herself trawling the aisles of the local health food store, staring at a vast range of products and ingredients she knew nothing about – faced with imagery that certainly didn’t represent her or her friends.

    Curiosity cut through the brain fog. And applying her creative, research investigator mind, Rebekah looked further into the bio-chemical changes the female body goes through in menopause and what vitamins we all need at each stage, regardless of symptoms.

    Armed with insight, Rebekah took things into her own hands and MPowder was born.

    She is now on a mission to reframe midlife and deliver the community, services and co-created product range to help women everywhere. With the rallying cry to help women make menopause their superpower.
