I’VE BEEN THERE, TOO

Long before I became a health coach, like many driven midlifewomen, I was waist-deep intrying to balance work-life; running my accounting services, writing my third book while juggling charity endeavorswith little regard to health issues. But then things changed. I started having one wellbeing issue, then another, then another. I was juggling gut issues, fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, high blood pressure, bacterial infections, weight issues, sleep disturbances... I spent thousands of dollars with specialists, doctors, testing, and x-rays, trying to fix each and every symptom.The only prescription I was givenwas, “you are in perimenopause.”After struggling and suffering for years without a clear path to feeling well,my health and life hit a brick wall. This was not how I had envisioned my midlife.

MY BREAKDOWN BECAME MY BREAKTHROUGH

My issues were more than hormonal changes brought on by perimenopause. What I learned then, you might not know this, but the foods you eat, the stuff you put on your skin, the thoughts you think... all can influence your hormones. As much as I was in charge of my life,my unstable hormones werecreating havoc withmy health.I also discovered I was not helpless. I could support my hormones and feel better.

 

TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW YOU LOOK AND FEEL and become your healthiest self

During my quest to rebalance my hormones and fix health issue,here are somethings I learned and now my clients:

  • You need to give yourself permission to feel goodand be willing to make diet and lifestyle changes to support your hormones. That helps you to break helpless thinking that suffering is the only choice for perimenopause or menopause.
  • You must learn to pay attention to the sensations of your body so you can understand how your body works and what impactsit. The very perimenopause or menopause symptoms are often the way-shower back to wellness.
  • You need to focus on wholehealth (mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual). Your diet can impact your hormones and wellbeing as well as the quality of your thoughts.
  • You need to be willing to adjust your work and life to support your health, by prioritizing your wellbeing needs daily.That is how you will have the energy to take care of everything.
  • You need to fix the habits that keep you from feeling and looking your best. Be willing to cultivate and integrate new routines and transform what keeps you stuck.
  • You need to educate and empower yourself about this stage and beyond so you can make lifestyle changes NOWto lower health risks.
  • You need to have a purpose for your wellbeing. This will inspire you, even more, to commit to making the changes to support your health.
  • Getting help with your wellbeing can provide solutions you might not see and keeps you accountable for sticking to your wellness goals.

That brings me back to you – can I help you create the wellbeing you crave?

What I know is this: if your premenstrual, perimenopause, or menopause symptoms are making your life miserable, your body is trying to tell you something. Your diet and lifestyle habits might be causing hormonal imbalances. The good news is, that is something you can change.
