Navigating Menopause with Ease_Pt 3
In this week's episode of the Wise Women Conversations Podcast I am sharing the final Pillar in navigating menopause with ease. This is all about your mindset and beliefs around ageing and menopause. Your belief systems will play a significant role in the way in which you are able to move through this time of life. If you believe that menopause will be a struggle then this is likely how you will experience it.
It is possible to move through this time of life with relatively few symptoms, I know because I did it and many of my clients have as well. Even if you are currently experiencing symptoms such as weight gain, hot flushes, sleep issues plus more by following the 5 steps that I have been sharing you will find that this can be a truly wonderful time of life.

Going AF wit Mitlè Southey
When I first heard the term going AF, I wasn't sure what it meant until I asked Mitlè Southey to explain it to me. In this episode of Wise Women Conversations we chat about being alcohol free (AF), I am not sure why we need another label but here we are. Mitlè shares her journey with alcohol and how she got to the stage where she considers herself to be AF.
I also don't drink alcohol, I stopped drinking it 2 years ago because I was sick of being in constant pain. Once I stopped the small amount of alcohol that I was drinking all of my body and muscle pain went away. I don't really miss the alcohol and I also don't miss the constant chatter in my head about whether I will drink or not on a night out, Mitlè talks about this in our conversation.
Alcohol has serious impacts on our health and wellbeing, yet many women are reluctant to give it up. Society has taught us that we can turn to alcohol in the good times and the bad, in the happy times and the sad. Listen to this open conversation between Mitlè and me and make up you own mind about your relationship with alcohol.

How to Navigate Menopause with Ease_Pt 2
In this episode of the Wise Women Conversations podcast I share with you Pillars 3 and 4 to navigating menopause with ease. These recordings were taken from a recent 7 day Hormone Reset that I ran. Pillar 3 is all about your environment and reducing your exposure to toxins that can cause imbalances in your hormones. In Pillar 4 I talk about stress and the impact that is has on the manner in which you will experience menopause, in fact stress is the underlying cause of most symptoms.
Intimacy and Menopause
In this week's episode of Wise Women Conversations I am talking with Janet McGeever who is the Co-Author of Tantric Sex and Menopause (with Diana Richardson). This was a beautiful conversation with Janet gently sharing how it is possible to be intimate after menopause despite the changes that happening in our body's. Janet's book and this conversation is about relearning what we think we know about intimate relationships. She shares the importance of understanding energy, receiving and giving, when it comes to intimacy.
I really enjoyed this conversation with Janet, her voice is so gentle and she holds space while we talk about a topic that can be a sensitive one for many women. I thoroughly enjoyed reading her book and had many ahha moments as I was reading through. There is so much that we can still learn about intimate relationships, things that are completely different to what we have learnt in the past.
I hope that you enjoy this conversation and if you would like to learn more about Janet you can visit her website www.janetmcgeever.com or www.makingloveretreat.com.au. You can also find Janet on facebook and instagram as @janetmcgeever.
I would love you to leave us a review about what you thought about this conversation, let me know what you think. The more reviews that the podcast gets the more it will show up in the various podcast platforms search options. I will be back next week with another Wise Women Conversations.
