#81 Thyroid Testing - why many women are struggling to find answers
If you're over 40 and suffering with fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, weight gain, low mood or hair loss, you absolutely need to get your thyroid checked out.
Not only does your thyroid often struggle with age, but it's also affected by stress, nutrient deficiencies, gut health, toxins and even your genetic make up.
The problem is that standard testing is woefully inadequate. It doesn't look at the whole pathway, which is critical to assessing optimal thyroid health.
Luckily we can test this for you and see whether it's causing your symptoms.

#80 How meditation can help you ditch stress and build a truly meaningful life
On World Meditation Day, I'm talking to Laura Coleman, founder of Be Modern Meditation about why meditation can be such an important tool to keep us calm and sane in what can be a crazy world!
Laura transformed her life when she discovered the power of meditation. She went from feeling like she was 'nothing', to being able to fully reconnect with her purpose and true identity.
I hope you are inspired by Laura’s story and her passion to help others to ditch stress and overwhelm and build a truly meaningful life.

#79 How mental health and menopause are connected - and what you can do to feel better
In Mental Health Awareness week, I'm talking about the link between mental health issues and menopause.
For many women, symptoms are still getting mixed up and often misdiagnosed.
Menopause is not just about hot flushes! The mental health symptoms of menopause are just as common, if not more so.
The good news is that if you balance your hormones, you've got a good chance of improving how you feel.

#78 How a personal peri-menopause struggle led to a brand with a mission - with Rebekah Brown
Rebekah Brown is the founder and chief guinea pig at MPowder.
Stopped in her tracks by peri-menopause in her 40’s, Rebekah was turned away by her GP as ‘too young’ so she started doing her own research.
Determined to find something to help her she got really curious. She learned about the biochemical changes the female body goes through in menopause and discovered the nutrients women needed during this phase of their lives.
Finally, MPowder was born offering a carefully formulated set of supplements specifically focused on the 3 stages of menopause.
I love what Rebekah is doing and how she is supporting women through menopause.

I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and i like that there is a variety of short and long episodes. The short ones are a quick dose and sometimes i need just a little bit and not so much info being thrown at me so i appreciate the short episodes! As someone with PCOS it is helpful to hear more information on hormones.
I’m a big fan of educational podcasts such as this one. Nicky’s episode on thyroid knowledge was very informative and helped me become better aware of what to look for. Looking forward to more.
Love the mental health tips and the reviews of books to help ease stress! Needed during a time like this.
