    This weeks episode features Dr Mandy Leonhardt & Dr Hannah Short who co-authored The Complete Guide to Premature Ovarian Insufficiency and Early Menopause.

    Early menopause is so poorly understood, not just by the general public but indeed healthcare providers and policy makers so this this episode we discuss everything from understanding what exactly induced menopause (medical and surgical) is and Premature Ovarian Insufficiency, the differences and tests / investigations that can be used to confirm or rule out as well as support for women including HRT options.

    2.7 Lorna Driver-Davies - laying the groundwork for our teen girls and young women

    Supporting our young girls and women through adolescence is such an important role and the best place to start is understanding what's happening in their body. I am delighted to have the wonderful Lorna Driver-Davies join me on the podcast to focus on exactly this and her specialist area of support Nutritional Therapy, Functional Medicine & Naturopathy. We start with the basics: understanding what is happening to our young girls and the key vitamins and minerals we should be mindful of when girls start their menstrual cycle. We also discuss the teenage microbiome, what's important to consider if young people are choosing  vegetarianism / veganism, the importance of teenagers getting complex carbs, and of course nutrition for teenage skin. 

    This is a fabulous discussion for anyone but especially any parents of young people!
