GOING THROUGH "THE CHANGES"..... ???

I find it truly amazing how road of destinations change and how things develop along the way.  A year ago I had no interest in learning about menopause.... I know it was something my mother experienced when I was a young child - well she was 42 when she had me!  

I remember the sweat pouring off her and her glasses slipping down her nose.  I recently discussed this with her and she said that was about as bad as it got...

as if dripping in sweat isn't bad enough!

BUT ..... since having the studio and our family growing (no I mean the Teign Fitness Family - I'm not pregnant!)... I'm coming across more and more women struggling tremendously with the effects of menopause and it's led me to start my own journey of education ...

is there something I can do for myself now that will make my transition from a supposed baby making machine to a gracefully ageing woman..... more enjoyable and less traumatic...

My findings have been rather intriguing and a lot of your symptoms are because of toxins in the body.... now don't think of toxins as rat poison or anything like that..... hairspray, make up, cleaning detergents, fire retardent material on your sofa...Prosecco... are toxins your body has to deal with.   

AND that's just the outside of your body....

then you have what you're putting into your body - so of course we all know what that's about.... processed foods, refined sugars, alcohol bla bla bla .. nothing new there then.

 
 

Menopause symptoms are becoming worse and worse as the years go by - 100 years ago women hardly suffered as much as they do now.... now some ladies suffer for it for 20 years, I kid you not.... imagine having those night sweats, emotional outbursts etc for 20 years! 

WHY is that? 

Where there mobile phones, tablets, WI-Fi, all the make ups etc 100 years ago?  Well no there wasn't, so our bodies had to deal with less poisons... cars, exhaust fumes, high built up areas are all emitting something or other that our body has to deal with.  

When you think of it - doesn't it make you want to build a wooden hut on Dartmoor far away from everything and everyone....it's no wander Tarzan ran around in a skimpy piece of leather cloth!  

Over the coming weeks I'll be expoloring more about menopause, the symptoms and the causes and what we can start doing to help reduce the agony of it all.

Back in the day it was meant to be a time for women to retreat and look after themselves.  The kids had left home and it was time to move into the next phase of their lives.  However, now with women having children much later and still working, it throws a spanner in the works...and women don't have a choice but to suck it up and deal with it.

BUT...

It needn't be.  I certainly don't want to suffer when it's my turn..... and not I don't think HRT is the answer.... I'll explain to you why in one of the upcoming blogs :)

Join me on this journey of discovery ....  there may be little nuggets of how to ease your symptoms, if you're going through the changes now...

Warmest Hugs!
