Perimenopause and Menopause | What Every Woman Over 35 Needs to Know

Is it really possible to avoid weight gain? The mood swings, no libido, dry skin, thinning hair, joint pain, headaches, hot flashes, belly fat, vaginal dryness, and all the other lovely side effects associated with perimenopause and menopause?

In This Episode of The Chalene Show, I dive deep into the often-misunderstood stages of perimenopause and menopause, providing a comprehensive look into managing symptoms, hormonal imbalances, and long-term health risks. If you’re over 35 and experiencing changes in weight, mood, or overall health, this episode is a must-listen.

Understand the significant effect of menopause and perimenopause on weight, hormone regulation, and overall health and why a healthy lifestyle and diet alone might not be enough to combat hormonal imbalances during these stages. Discover how hormones like leptin, ghrelin, and cortisol get dysregulated during menopause, contributing to weight gain and other health issues. Learn to be your own health advocate when navigating a healthcare system that may not be attentive to your individual needs.

I discuss HRT – Hormone Replacement Therapy – emphasizing the importance of personal consultation with healthcare providers specializing in menopause—practical tips on locating healthcare providers who specialize in menopausal care. Why starting early interventions can make your menopausal journey smoother and more manageable.

I will also give you practical takeaways like which lifestyle changes can be used to control rising cortisol levels, the benefits of switching from high-intensity workouts to walking and weight training for hormone balance and longevity, and the benefits of incorporating collagen and magnesium into your routine.
