#97 Understanding Perimenopause And What You Can Do To Improve Symptoms
There's so much attention (deservedly) on the menopause right now, which is great news!
But as menopause is still regarded as something that happens in your fifties, we really need to be talking about 'peri-menopause'.
These are the transition years from when your hormones start to change (as early as your 30's) right up to your final period.
And 80% of women can suffer symptoms ranging from mild to debilitating.
We don't have to put up with symptoms though. There are many ways of surviving and even thriving through this time, if you know how to look after your hormones!

#95 Why zinc is not only great for your health, but also your hormones
While we only need a small amount of zinc, it's incredibly important!
It's not only vital for our immune system, DNA repair, vision, taste, smell, growth and healing, it's also REALLY important for your hormones.
And it's something that your body can't store so you need to be getting it every day, either through your diet or supplements.

Yoga and pelvic floor expert Linda Stephens is on a mission to educate us all about our pelvic health so we can avoid weakness that can lead to leakage, incontinence and prolapse.

What are you waiting for?!
I didn’t even begin to understand the impact that my hormones were having on my health until I signed up with Happy Hormones For Life. Nikki Williams offers empathetic, easily comprehensible and well informed advice for women in their 40’s plus. I recommend the 30 day program initially and ultimately embracing the entire concept. It’s worth considering the testing that Nikki offers if you notice a likely hormone imbalance. I appreciate we’re all on a budget but it’s difficult to put a price on good health and happiness. Nikki isn’t pushy, I’ve been listening to her advice for 2 years and I’m only now just beginning to fully understand the steps I need to take to improve my life quality.
Informative and fascinating stuff!
As someone with various health issues, I find this podcast both fascinating and useful. I love the mix of informative short episodes and longer interviews - these are topics that need to be discussed and known about more widely.
Nicki has - without a doubt - made my menopause journey a lot easier. I can’t thank you enough x
