This is in addition to research from The National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS), which found that over 56% of perimenopausal women are getting less than seven hours of sleep a night, and are at high risk of heart attack. What’s more, the changes in hormone levels during menopause said to be a double threat to our hearts, because menopause increases the amount of plaque build-up in the arteries, increasing blood pressure and the risk of a stroke. Meanwhile, 80% of women experience menopausal symptoms, including the physical – hot flushes, insomnia and weight gain, and the psychological and emotional, including mood changes, depression and anxiety. These revelations, coupled with the apparent positive news that HRT won’t kill you and merely increases your chances of getting cancer or having a stroke, is not how we best prepare 14 million women a year for entering what is just a natural phase of … 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
