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.

PODCAST SUMMARY

 

Nooooo!! I can hear the screams from here as I write this 😂

Here’s the thing, have you ever considered the role alcohol plays in your overall health and wellbeing, especially as you navigate the course of perimenopause and menopause? Today, I’m here to shine a light on a subject that’s often overlooked. I’m going to take a look at how alcohol can disrupt your sleep, trigger heart palpitations, and intensify hot flushes and night sweats. I’ll also talk about the connection between alcohol and reduced melatonin production, which can throw your circadian rhythm out of whack – making a good night’s rest seem like a distant dream.

But that’s not all. On this episode, we’re also going to tackle the broader effects of alcohol on your body. Prepare to uncover some sobering truths about how alcohol can shrink the brain, escalate stress levels, stimulate your appetite, and interfere with oestrogen metabolism. It doesn’t stop there – alcohol can also harm your gut microbiome and hinder the development of healthy bones and muscles. Despite the notion that alcohol is part of the so-called ‘healthy Mediterranean diet,’ unfortunately even small amounts can have adverse effects.

However, it’s not all gloom and doom. I’ll also explore the psychological benefits of socialising and I’ll be sharing some effective tips on supporting your liver’s detoxification process. And for those who feel the societal pressure to drink, we’ll discuss non-alcoholic alternatives that’ll keep you in the social circle without the hangover. Join me for this revealing episode, and let’s empower ourselves with knowledge and choices especially in this Festive Season!
