Q&A with Naturopath Susie – Managing Emotions in Perimenopause

PODCAST SUMMARY

 

I’ll never forget the time I was wrestling with a necklace clasp, fingertips slipping, my frustration spilling over into tears. This was last year sometime and it’s moments like these that can feel like defeat, but they’re also a signpost to the wilds of perimenopause, something you might know all too well. On today’s episode, Melissa from Perth has reached out for help with managing the extreme emotions of perimenopause. If you’ve ever found yourself tearing up over the tiniest of setbacks or riding the mood swing merry-go-round, you’re in good company. 

Join me as I share not only my own journey through these hormone-heavy seas but also offer some strategies to guide you back to calm waters. 

I’m focusing on the ‘why’ behind our emotional ebbs and flows, likening perimenopause to a second puberty where hormones play a tempestuous symphony. This is an intimate and universal topic so here’s some heartfelt advice and practical strategies from me. 

It’s time to empower ourselves with understanding and grace, so hitch a ride on this journey and discover how to embrace your perimenopausal passage with laughter, tears, and an unshakeable sense of self.

Weight Gain and Metabolic Health in Perimenopause

PODCAST SUMMARY

 

Ever felt like your body’s betraying you during perimenopause, with every attempt to manage weight feeling like an uphill battle? I’m right there with you. You may have noticed your metabolism slowing down once you’ve hit your 40s/50s even though you’re still eating the same and moving the same.  This episode is packed with insights into the hormonal whirlwind that’s affecting our bodies during perimenopause. I’m not just talking about the numbers on the scale, I’m focusing on the decrease in oestrogen that’s hitting us with muscle loss, a messed up metabolism, and the annoying increase in fat storage that no one asked for. Let’s not forget the joint pain and exhaustion that seem to conspire against us, making the motivation to move feel like a distant memory. I’ll be getting real about my own journey through these struggles and sharing how critical it is to find that spark to keep active, seek the right support, and power through this transition with grace and energy.

I’ll also be getting into the nitty-gritty of metabolic flexibility, which seems to be the latest buzzword. It’s that secret sauce to reduce the risk of weight gain and chronic diseases. And yes, it gets trickier as we cruise through perimenopause, but I’m here to walk you through how we can reignite that ability to switch from burning glucose to burning fat. Forget empty promises of quick fixes; we’re building sustainable habits with smart diet tweaks, resistance training to sculpt and strengthen, and yoga to bring it all together in a harmonious blend of wellness. It’s not just about fitting into those jeans from 5 years ago—it’s about cultivating a body and mind that’s robust, resilient, and ready to embrace all the adventures that lie ahead. Tune in and let’s embark on this journey to not only look amazing but feel unstoppable at any age.

Nourishment Beyond Numbers – The Calorie Myth

PODCAST SUMMARY

 

Calories have long been the tyrants of the diet world, but it’s time to overthrow their rule and expose the truth!! This week’s episode strips away the calorie’s crown as I  reveal why this outdated method of measurement doesn’t fit our current understanding of nutrition and health. Welcome in a mindset where we honour the unique interplay of our gut health, metabolism, and hormones. It’s not just about the number of calories in a banana versus a glass of wine; it’s about the substance of what we consume and how it fuels our individual bodies.

Tune in as I share my personal journey through the calorie counting BS and why I now focus on the quality of my meals rather than the calorie count. This will help explain why I’m passionate about personalised nutrition which is aligned with your body’s biochemistry and is tailored to your body’s specific needs, leading to more effective health outcomes. It’s not just a podcast episode; it’s an invitation to transform your relationship with food and embrace a holistic approach to well-being that celebrates the complex beauty of our bodies. 

Join the conversation and the community that’s tearing down calorie counts and building up a new paradigm of personalised health.
