Feeling like you are losing your memory at midlife can be very scary, especially if you think it’s a permanent situation. Many women secretly wonder if these ‘senior moments’ are the beginning of dementia and are truly frightened, but in actuality it’s one of the most common symptoms associated with menopause. If you forget what you are saying mid-sentence or can’t remember what you went into a room for you will be pleased to know that research now shows that our brain has the ability to grown new brain cells and even increase in size all throughout our lives, improving cognitive function and memory. This is great news for those of us who have reached midlife and are starting to think that our brains are fading along with our memory. In addition to making our diet more nutrient dense and including foods that contain Mother Nature’s oestrogen, various forms of … Read More

My heart goes out to women like Yasmin Le Bon who says that her menopause has left her with a layer of padding all over her body and affected her memory.   Women are often taken by surprise, and not in a good way, by the often-debilitating symptoms of menopause.   Fat around the middle, brain fog, mood swings, aching to the point of feeling old prematurely, and experiencing uncharacteristic anxiety, as well as the hot flushes and night sweats are hard to live with; but it must be particularly devastating for a woman who was once the highest paid supermodel in the world.

A recent poll of menopause women in my Facebook Group Natural Menopause – Making the Midlife Switch revealed that many women at peri-menopause and menopause are feeling confused and overwhelmed by their symptoms; unsure about how to deal with them and not even certain that they can.  They often feel distraught, depressed and desperate at this life stage, clinging on by their finger nails, like a shadow of their former selves. The internet, packed full of conflicting information fuels the confusion making it almost impossible for them to know what to do or who to believe.   One hundred or so years ago this wouldn’t have been a problem as women were not living much past 50, but these days, when women go through menopause at the average age of 51, and life expectancy is so much longer than ever before, it becomes a real issue.  How can a woman … Read More
