The Importance Of Exercise During Menopause - Maryon Stewart the importance of exercise during menopause Shape Up For Summer Week 2: The Importance Of Exercise During Menopause 2 862x485

It’s week two of my Summer series and I want to talk to you about the importance of exercise during the menopause. In Winter we don’t always think about exercise or what we look like underneath our clothes, but in the Summer it’s a different story.  We all know it can be hard to find the motivation to exercise, BUT it’s very important to build up fitness for our wellbeing. The good news is there are many different ways you can exercise that doesn’t involve going to the gym or to a class, although they are of course both very good forms of exercise. For example, there are lots of classes on YouTube to follow which mean you can do exercise from your home. Try putting on your favourite music and stretching and dancing so you get your heart rate going. Exercise is very good for you as gets your … Read More

Hot flushes, and night sweats, experienced at the time of menopause can be overwhelming, especially when the weather heats up. Women report that during the day in summer time, it’s difficult to cool down between flushes, and the short bursts of sleep they do get are interspersed by thermal surges during the night, leaving them feeling anxious, exhausted and foggy headed by morning. There are many tools, acknowledged through research, designed to address the thermal issues and calm anxiety, but most of them take time to kick in. Whether your choice to journey through menopause includes HRT, or adding hormone influencing foods and supplements to your regime, to fool the brain into thinking that normal hormone levels are circulating, it’s likely that it will be awhile before the results are apparent. Research does show that we can reduce flushes by up to 60 percent by doing a formal session of … Read More

Physical and emotional padding during menopause

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. There is an overwhelming consensus among many women that menopause signals the end of life as they knew it.  Often feeling like an alien has taken possession of their mind and body, as well as feeling switched off below the waist resulting in zero libido. It seems … Read More

Why being overweight makes menopause harder

Why being overweight makes menopause harder - Maryon Stewart why being overweight makes menopause harder Why being overweight makes menopause harder 3 862x485

This week’s ‘Weekly Wisdom’ is about whether or not being overweight makes menopause harder. And the answer is, YES, sadly, being overweight will only make your menopause harder than it should be. Research shows that if you are overweight as you go into menopause, you’re more likely to have more hot flushes, more night sweats, more urinary symptoms and more aches and pains. Given that in the UK, more than half of all women are overweight, then it follows that many will also find menopause difficult. I find that on my programme, when we get nutrients back into an optimum range, it has a normalising effect on the metabolism, and in fact, can not only result in improved menopause symptoms, but also stress free weight loss, so it’s really important to make sure you’re filling up on really good nutrients, having a wholesome diet and really focusing on looking after … Read More
