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.

3 Ways to Reduce Brain Fog

3 Ways to Reduce Brain Fog - Maryon Stewart 3 ways to reduce brain fog 3 Ways to Reduce Brain Fog Summer series 2 862x485

Do you walk into a room and can’t remember why?  Forever losing your glasses or iPad more times a day than you care to remember?  Then like many other women at menopause you are probably experiencing something called brain fog. Many women secretly wonder if these ‘senior moments’ are the beginning of dementia and are truly frightened. Sometimes, their doctor does too.  I met a woman recently who for 10 years, from the age of 37, believed she had dementia.  Her husband was preparing to say goodbye to the woman he knew and loved. It turned out that her loss of memory, wooly headedness and clarity were actually associated with an early menopause.  And, once she learned to get her body back into balance she restored her mental clarity.  If you forget what you were saying mid-sentence or where you put your car keys you are not alone.  Brain fog … Read More

Are Phytoestrogens Good or Bad for You?

Are Phytoestrogens Good or Bad for You? - Maryon Stewart are phytoestrogens good or bad for you? Are Phytoestrogens Good or Bad for You? Phytoestrogens 862x485

Welcome to my Weekly Wisdom, this post is something a little different because I want to share my opinion on whether phytoestrogens are good or bad for you. Phytoestrogens are plant-derived compounds found in a wide variety of foods, most notably soy, that help us to cope with menopause. I’m inundated with people asking me if it is safe to take them.  I want to set the record straight because there are tens of thousands of medical papers on these substances. Watch me discussing my thoughts about phytoestrogens in the video below: Asian communities around the world have been consuming naturally occurring oestrogen as part of their diet for centuries and research shows that oestrogen dependent cancers are about a half of what we experience in the Western World. I always recommend things that are scientifically based and if I’m not sure of something I contact a Professor or Academic … 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

Menopause Misery for Millions

Menopause Misery for Millions - Maryon Stewart menopause misery for millions Menopause Misery for Millions sad1

Millions of women are suffering menopause misery because simple steps are not being taken to alleviate common symptoms including panic attacks, palpitations, hot flashes, and extreme tiredness. My latest research, involving a survey of over 1000 women, shows a staggering 80 per cent of women report suffering moderate to severe menopausal symptoms, which can last between seven to 10 years, which is dramatically affecting the quality of their lives. This is far more than was previously thought. Although it was accepted that eight of ten women had some symptoms, only a quarter of these were believed to have severe symptoms. What we are seeing though is much worse with women reporting significant impact on their home lives and relationships. Not least, this is crippling women in the workplace, affecting their self-esteem and confidence, as well as their productivity. Our survey found that 84 per cent of respondents felt that their productivity … Read More

Reclaim your mojo at midlife - Maryon Stewart reclaim your mojo at midlife Reclaim your mojo at midlife reclaim

Rome wasn’t built in a day and, without a magic wand, the often ghastly symptoms that occur at the perimenopause and menopause can’t be alleviated overnight. With a few scientifically based inside tips symptoms can be history within a matter of months though. And that includes everything from hot flushes through to loss of confidence, insomnia, anxiety, aches joints, fatigue and even dry sore vaginal tissues, lost libido and more. The trick is finding workable information and learning how to implement it. Most of us would give our back teeth to reclaim our mojo at midlife. But the truth is that women commonly believe that their confident energetic selves did an ‘exit stage left’ along with their libido as part of the ageing process. Well, I’m here to tell you that’s far from the case. Not only can we annihilate the symptoms that occur at midlife, but we can also … Read More

Numerous medical publications from around the world containing conflicting findings relating to menopause have entered the public arena this week causing ever increasing confusion about treatment options and long-term health prospects. With muddled messages in the news, it’s understandable that women, as well as their health care providers, are feeling utterly bewildered.   No one seems to be interpreting the science providing clear understanding what the research really means to a woman going through the menopause. The United States Preventive Services Task Force, in their latest draft recommendations, have given HRT a D Notice which means they are voting against the use of HRT as a treatment for women going through the menopause.   Imagine how many other experts are leaping up and down accusing them of misconstruing the research. HRT might be a small term but it certainly is a huge subject surrounded by uncertainty and even fear about long-term health … Read More
