    132 Forget Having It All with Dr Lisa Petty

    132 Forget Having It All with Dr Lisa Petty

    As I sit here writing this, I'm eating my words.  If you listen to early episodes of The Menopause Mindset Podcast you'll hear me say in the jingle 'yes you CAN have it all'.  
    My guest today strongly disagrees and I have to say, so do I now.  
    I think of that younger version of me with love.  She was fresh into peri menopause and fresh into menopause education (with all the enthusiasm that brings) and truthfully she had no idea how menopause would hit her in years to come. 
    I believe in divine timing and I think this interview with Dr Lisa Petty, couldn't have come at a better time.  
    Dr Lisa Petty started her career as a holistic nutritionist and health researcher and quickly become recognised as a speaker, journalist and award winning author.  She earned a PhD for her research on how midlife women experience self care in the face of social pressure to be perfect in every facet of their lives. 
    In this conversation we talk about: 
    😘 The real reason why women can't keep up with their self care.
    😘 How choosing to spend your money differently can empower your wellbeing.
    😘 Where does this idea of having it all even come from.
    😘 How disconnecting from our bodies is wreaking havoc with our minds.
    😘 How to stop chasing other people's dreams.
    😘 The buffet analogy.
    😘 Why it's called a TV 'programme'
    😘 What it means to truly let go of our youth
    😘 Who is this new version of you and can you love her. 

    All this and so much more.
    So if you're feeling lost and needing a big ole re-set, this episode is for you.

    131 Aromatherapy for Menopause and for Life with Amy Anthony

    131 Aromatherapy for Menopause and for Life with Amy Anthony

    If you're anything like me, you've purchased hundreds of aromatherapy oils in the past with the full intention of using them in your baths, in diffusers and in your massage oils, only to then wonder 'are they really working?'  Promptly abandoning them only to repeat the cycle a year later. 
    My guest today is listed as one of America's most influential aromatherapists.  She's also the New York State representative for the Alliance of International Aromatherapists, so she knows a thing or two about the contents of these mysterious little bottles.  
    In our long awaited conversation we spoke about:
    What makes an essential oil so powerful.
      How smells affects the nervous system.
      The properties of essential oils.
      How essential oils actually affect our bodies.
      How to really work with and appreciate essential oils.
      Aromatherapy post hysterectomy.
      Aromatherapy for symptoms management during menopause.
      The problem with perfume.
      What NOT to do with essential oils.
      Why you need to see a LOCAL aromatherapist.
      Understanding the synergistic effect of blending oils.
      What essential oils are to the plants themselves.
      Building a relationship with the oil and plant. 
      Using oils to connect with nature if you live in a city.
      Do essential oils REALLY help with our emotions?
    And so much more...
    So if you want uplift your senses and really understand the relationship with plants, smells and humans (and of course, how all of this can help your menopause) this episode is for you.

    130 Treating People Not Just Lab Results with Ricky Brandon

    130 Treating People Not Just Lab Results with Ricky Brandon

    What's it like when you're told that your lab results are 'normal' but you feel far from it? 
    It might offer temporary relief but you go back into your life and before long, you feel awful again. 
    Your intuition is telling you that things are far from normal.  
    So what is really going on here?  
    My guest today is Ricky Brandon, founder of The Hormone Balance Centres in the USA.  After years of searching, thousands of hours in training, research, and trial, and error, he has finally landed on the process and system that mixes traditional medicine with alternative medicine and helps people feel great again and live younger and longer with natural hormone replacement therapy.
    In today's conversation we discuss: 
    ✅ Why UNDERSTANDING is power when it comes to your health.
    ✅ Embracing symptoms rather than fearing them.
    ✅ The restrictions that tight protocol creates for traditional doctors when dealing with hormones. 
    ✅ The wide generic nature of hormone levels set by insurance companies.
    ✅ The male menopause.
    ✅ Becoming a master negotiator of your own health.
    ✅ Post natal depression
    ✅ Stop treating the lab results and start treating people
    ✅ Bio Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy

    and so much more....
    This was a really emotional episode for Ricky and it's obvious to see why he is incredibly passionate about being a women's health advocate.
    So if you're ready to listen to a really inspiring conversation which may ruffle some feathers, come on over.

    129 Why Winter Is A Powerful Time of Year For Menopause

    129 Why Winter Is A Powerful Time of Year For Menopause

    What if this time of year was THE most powerful time of year for menopause?  In today's episode I talk about a new book I'm reading which is helping me tap into my creative genius (and what that means for menopause).   I also talk about how much I'm loving the stillness and quietude that exists at the moment as a result of the hunkering down caused by winter and the change in people's economic circumstances.  I also briefly talk about a gorgeous yoga workshop retreat I went on and what I learnt from that.   It's a very paired back episode today but hopefully it will inspire you to go within and reflect on the stirrings of your own inner magic.

    128 Why You Need To Be Menopause Informed with Katie Taylor

    128 Why You Need To Be Menopause Informed with Katie Taylor

    Do you ever wonder why there's so much talk of HRT these days?  


    A few weeks ago I posted a reel at my distain for the amount of HRT 'pushing' I was seeing on social media  but after my conversation with Katie Taylor, now I know why that is. 


    It's because the pendulum needed to swing so far the other way.


    The immense fear of HRT caused by the flawed WHI study meant that women's medical health has been paralysed.  And the force with which my guest (and others in her field) have had to fight, has literally swung the pendulum the other way.  


    Go them!  It needed to happen to mobilise women's health care.  


    My guest today, Katie Taylor, is a fighting spirit among the campaigning community to make menopause matter.  She's the CEO of the Latte Lounge (a free Facebook community and low cost private membership) and the organiser of The Midlife Festival.  


    In our conversation today we covered: 


    ✅ The increasing popularity of menopause as a conversational piece.
    ✅ The importance of evidence based information.
    ✅ Coping with the limited amount of GP appointments available. 
    ✅ When HRT is the only answer.
    ✅ Why so many women are resistant to HRT.
    ✅ Why 'put up and shut up' is no longer relevant.
    ✅ Why showing up to your GP appointment well informed is best practice. 
    ✅ What's happening with the HRT shortage.
    ✅ What's happening with the free prescription promise.
    ✅ Why the pendulum had to swing so far in the HRT direction. 


    So if you're ready to get latest on where we're at with the HRT shortage and hear about Katie's story, along with the success of The Latte Lounge, then this episode is for you.

    127 Health At Every Size with Claudine Nightingill-Rane

    127 Health At Every Size with Claudine Nightingill-Rane

    Hating your body is a choice that you have been hypnotised into by diet culture.  It's totally unnecessary and feels bad to your soul.  If you've put weight on during menopause or you've always been curvy, you CAN learn to accept your body right now AND you can be healthy at every size.  
    Sound controversial?  Damn right it is. 
    My guest today is Claudine Nightingill-Rane.  She's a body image, mindset and blue health coach and she works with women to help heal their relationship with themselves and their bodies so they can be happy and healthy as they are.
    In today's conversation we talk about: 

    🙄 The mental pain of yoyo dieting
    🙄 Lifestyle changes can be diets too
    🙄 How you THINK you look vs how you ACTUALLY look
    🙄 The slow process of learning to accept your body
    🙄 BMI - a flawed tool - aka The Bulls**t Measurement Index
    🙄 The torture of fat shaming
    🙄 Reclaiming the word FAT
    🙄 Shrinking your body is a choice and you don't have to do it
    🙄 The one big barrier many people feel when embarking on working with a body positive coach
    🙄 The one big mindset shift to help you appreciate your body
    🙄 Thoughts about those before and after pictures
    🙄 Your cup is both half full AND half empty - that's the reality
    🙄 The language around intuitive eating vs dieting says it all
    🙄 Undoing the years of conditioning
    🙄 Health at every size - even during menopause
    🙄 The power of cold water therapy for body positivity
    So if you're ready to reclaim your body-ody-ody and look for inspiration on how to work WITH yourself instead of against, this episode is for you.

Love this podcast

I really enjoy listening to this podcast. It’s a chance to hear how other women are feeling and thinking about this time of life, which helps it to feel like something I can understand.

You don’t sound confident

The reading of someone else’s quotes or articles and repeating yourself makes me uncomfortable. It’s boring I’m afraid
