Description

As no two menopause journeys are identical, this highly practical and accessible nutrition and lifestyle guide enables women to build a bespoke menopause diet that specifically targets their symptoms, with the minimum of fuss and effort.

This practical nutrition and lifestyle guide provides women with the tools to build their own menopause diet which specifically targets the symptoms that are relevant to them. There are so many ways that nutrition can support a healthy and happy menopause, but a one-size-fits-all approach simply won’t work. The reality is that there are many different menopausal symptoms and no two women have the same experience. 
Jackie explains how the menopause and perimenopause can change your body and how your diet can make a tangible difference to the way that you feel, whether you’re using HRT or not. Each symptom section provides a range of targeted nutritional solutions, practical lifestyle advice and simple recipe tips that you can incorporate into your daily routine. 
A highly experienced clinician, Jackie specialises in providing real-world guidance to busy women. This book is designed to make the key information as easily accessible as possible and reflects her trademark practical style, which makes it the ideal one-stop solution for anyone juggling their menopause with the demands of a busy job and a hectic family life.

My Review

I’ve been in menopause since 2007 after a total hysterectomy and to say it’s been a difficult journey would be an understatement! From multiple HRT medications to hot flashes, I tried to get a handle on the symptoms without much relief. Over the years, I’ve done my homework on HRT meds only to find they may do more harm than good, especially when taken for a long duration. Needless to say, I no longer take any meds and control my symptoms with diet, exercise, and very few supplements when needed and while I know this isn’t for everyone, for me it’s helped me feel better than I’ve ever felt.

When I saw this title available on Netgalley, I couldn’t pass up the chance to check it out! I highly recommend it to anyone heading into their 40s and 50s and looking for more information and tips on managing this mid-life season. Broken into sections this book gives a great overview of symptoms, diet to alleviate them and more.
