    Let’s Talk About Menopause

    Let’s Talk About Menopause

    One of the best parts about my job is that I get to have intimate conversations with women from all around the world. Every day I hear women describing their symptoms and experiences with menopause, and in today's episode I am sharing with you a list of the most common topics that come up.
    My hope is that this episode will help normalize these symptoms and release you from that isolating feeling that something is wrong with you. When I went through menopause, I was worried that something was wrong with me, which is a terrible feeling. The good news is that you are not alone, there is nothing wrong with you, and women around the world are all going through the same thing.
    Let's dive in and explore why these changes to our bodies are happening, and what you can do about them.
