On Valentine’s Day… For some of us instead of visions of kisses, cuddles and hugs, we find ourselves cringing at the thought of just being touched. Does that sound familiar? In my recent survey on Women’s Attitudes at Menopause, a large portion of the women sampled were not even talking to their best friend about what’s going on below the waist. More than half of the women complained of vaginal dryness and half stated that they were unable to achieve an orgasim during sexual intercourse. Those who engaged in sex often found it uncomfortable and at times painful only making the effort to please their partner aka “mercy sex”. If this sounds like your situation, the good news is that you can take action to get your mojo back on track. Did you know that having sex regularly helps clear your brain, keeps your metabolic rate up – burning calories … Read More

4 Ways To Deal With Dry Skin During Menopause - Maryon Stewart 4 ways to deal with dry skin during menopause 4 Ways To Deal With Dry Skin During Menopause 15 862x485

Today I’m focusing on giving you advice on managing dry skin during the menopause. Skin gets dry during the menopause because nutrients and oestrogen levels are falling. As your oestrogen levels fall so does your collagen, which is responsible for holding everything in place. When collagen levels fall you may start to see wrinkles, saggy bits and dryness. This can be difficult to combat if you are not using quality products. To find out my top four ways for combatting dry skin during menopause watch the video below. Here are my top four tips for combatting dry skin.

Now that you have chosen the natural menopause path,  be it self-help or a guided approach, you still may fall into old habits that can impede your process along the way. But don’t worry, this is normal – think of the process as creating new habits to replace old ones which will help future-proof your health for the years to come. Over the years I have heard from a substantial number of women before starting my programme that they have tried everything and nothing ever works. In most cases, they have tried a supplement or made a dietary change for a month or less and expecting some incredible results. I can guarantee if you do not give yourself adequate time or if you cherry pick (in most cases tweaking your diet or taking a random supplement), you will never achieve the results you so desperately want.  If you had, you … Read More

Once you have made the decision to manage your menopause symptoms using the natural approach, the next hurdle is how do you go about doing that. I hear this all the time from members in my Facebook Group – Making the Midlife Switch. The tendency is for women to advise one another, often giving random conflicting advice which isn’t science based, resulting in frustration and desperation with no end in sight. This week I’m focusing on choosing supplements that are likely to help you overcome your menopause symptoms. For finding the right supplements for your symptom set is key to a successful recovery journey. However, making choices about which supplements to take isn’t as simple as it seems. Research shows that many of the beautifully packaged supplements you see in the stores often do not work as they promise, and in some instances, these supplements don’t contain what they say … Read More

Many women think that the menopause will just happen and it will be over in a relatively short amount of time, but for the majority of women that’s just wishful thinking.  You need to carefully consider your personal journey through menopause as there are options. And, remember to treat yourself as a priority as it isn’t something that comes naturally to most of us.  We are used to doing things for everyone else first! Unfortunately, menopause symptoms are not likely to magically disappear without help. Research shows they can last up to 10 years after menopause, in addition to perimenopause, those 5 years leading up to menopause when hormone levels are changing. The good news is once you understand what is going on in your body, you can make adjustments that will significantly reduce your symptoms. In addition, these changes will allow you to reclaim your wellbeing from menopause and … Read More

How to correct your nutritional deficiencies

How to correct your nutritional deficiencies - Maryon Stewart how to correct your nutritional deficiencies How to correct your nutritional deficiencies 1 1 1024x576 862x485

What are nutritional deficiencies and why do they occur? At the Women’s Nutritional Advisory Service we undertook 5 studies looking at nutrient levels in women, focussing on how they affected our hormone function. We were stunned to find that between 50 – 80% of women had low levels of key nutrients, necessary for both normal brain chemistry and hormone function.  There’s been much more research in the last few years showing that billions of women have nutritional deficiencies so is it any wonder that women are experiencing hormone problems as they make the transition through menopause. Perhaps because we often naturally put the needs of others before our own, many of us don’t make time to eat well or look after ourselves properly. Low levels of important nutrients at midlife could be the underlying cause of many of your debilitating symptoms. Some patients get misdiagnosed with mental illness or dementia … Read More

Achy Joints Can Be A Pain - Maryon Stewart achy joints can be a pain Achy joints can be a pain Summer series 1 862x485

In this Weekly Wisdom I am focusing on achy joints at menopause because so many of you have been asking about it and how you can find relief. These pains can have you feeling 90 before your time, when you absolutely do not need to!  You should be feeling great and if you know how to meet your needs you can alleviate the pain from your aches and get on with enjoying yourself. We feel achy in our joints because of a lack of lubrication which at menopause tends to dry up over time. This is caused by the fall in oestrogen levels during menopause. It is not just physical changes that have an effect on your aches and pains, a lack of particular nutrients may also contribute to your pain, particularly vitamin D, essential fatty acids and magnesium; these are at short supply during menopause. You are not alone, … Read More

Imagine celebrating menopause as an achievement… It can, and should, be the beginning of a whole new satisfying chapter in our life, rather than feeling like the end of life as we knew it.  With accumulated professional and social skills, improving financial stability and increasing amounts of leisure time once children have flown the nest, women should be in celebration mode.  Why is it then that, in Western societies, celebration and menopause are hardly mentioned in the same conversation? When young women see the first sign of menstrual blood, their mothers quietly celebrate their daughter’s arrival to womanhood.  Following the delivery of our new born babies, whole families and close friends share our joy. So, why then aren’t women expecting congratulations when they leave their fertile years behind and the prospect of being respected for their wisdom?  According to the results of my new survey of 1100 women, Changing the … Read More
