Many women find that they have an increase in their total cholesterol levels during their menopause transition and I experienced that myself. This is known as hypercholesterolemia – high blood levels of cholesterol and it does warrant monitoring as you move through menopause, because it can lead to changing arterial health.  Whilst not all cholesterol is ‘bad’, we must remember that it’s the health of the internal lining of the blood vessels, which contributes to changes in our cardiac health too, because any additional inflammatory changes inside the blood vessels, can contribute to ch ..read more

MyMT™ Education: A’choo – the curious link between menopause allergies, heart health and histamine.

The allergies that arise during menopause is a topic that comes up numerous times in my private coaching group. I also see women commenting about it on the comments section of my advertisements. Hundreds of emails over the years have also alerted me to the itching, sneezing, wheezing and food and alcohol intolerances, of menopausal and post-menopausal women.  If it’s the same for your clients, then I’m not surprised. Menopause changes our immune response and it’s all to do with histamine levels, which can also affect the heart and the onset of palpitations (Neuman et al, 2021). If you’v ..read more

MyMT™ Education: Why your overweight menopausal clients may not need this popular tropical oil.

“Growing up in Fiji, we never cooked with coconut oil” mentioned Losena in an email to me. After reading new evidence noting how we need to be cautious about all the marketing hype with coconut oil, I wanted to hear from her. After all, the marketing is based on the experience of Pacific Islanders using coconut oils for improved health. “The only thing we used for cooking was the coconut meat and the oil was used in our hair. My mother taught us not to cook with it as it affects heart health.” Like most things that appear on our supermarket shelves, coconut products are promoted as the panac ..read more

The MyMT™ Kitchen: An Apple Crumble that the Family will Adore

Will an apple a day keep the Doctor away for women during their menopause transition? If we follow the research on the effect of a whole apple (including the skin) on our gut microbiome, then yes, we will help both our gut and our heart health as we move through menopause.  Apples represent the most important dietary source for various flavonoids in our diets and research suggests that apples offer a beneficial impact on human health. [Wasserman et al, 2019]. The soluble fibre in apples, is the same kind as in oat bran, which means that this helps to remove cholesterol deposits in ..read more

Is your changing gut health during menopause contributing to higher blood pressure?

This week saw me visit a progressive workplace here in New Zealand, which put menopause and lifestyle solutions on the wellness agenda. The room was full of women and men, young and old.  I’m sure that many of them were surprised as I began to talk about both gut health and heart health. But I did this for a reason … many women don’t understand that we need to take an integrated, all-over approach to the reproductive changes that our menopause transition is heralding in. There is so much focus on ovarian function and ‘just’ taking HRT, however, there is a lot happening throughout the bo ..read more

As you drive from Portsmouth to Reading in the United Kingdom, you pass one of King Charles’ organic farms and his farm shop. With a focus on Heart Health week this week, I was revisiting some of the fabulous nutrition research about the wonder of walnuts for women’s heart health, hence my memory about my visit to this shop to buy some walnuts, on my way to one of my UK Masterclass on Menopause live events.   I remember thinking at the time, whether he knew how important walnuts are to women’s healthy ageing, especially in relation to helping them to enhance progesterone levels and ..read more

The MyMT™ Kitchen: This high fibre, low glycemic index ‘Risotto’ benefits the whole family!

Risotto Risotto is an Italian rice dish cooked with broth until it reaches a creamy consistency. The broth can be derived from meat, fish, or vegetables. Many types of risotto contain butter, onion, white wine, and Parmesan cheese. This dish isn’t a risotto but looks like one! Whilst Risotto is one of the most common ways of cooking rice in Italy, the problem is the higher fat content of a true Risotto and the fact that Arborio rice is relatively higher in the glycemic index (around 70). Hence, in this recipe, the white arborio rice is swapped out for brown rice, however, if you want to use ..read more

“I love sharing my travel photos as I have come so far with what I am able to do. I did not regain my ability to do stairs until after my kids were born. My youngest was in fifth grade when I really started enjoying better health. I will never forget it as I went on his tree climbing/adventure park field trip for the last day of school and climbed trees and ziplined with him and his classmates. It was one of my favorite days.” [Sharon, USA] International Fibromyalgia Awareness Day is May 12 and Sharon from Michigan reminded me to remind you that this is an important topic to share for women ..read more

Perhaps your client’s are being woken by leg cramps at night? Maybe they are regular exercisers and don’t understand why they aren’t recovering the way they used to? Maybe your clients assume that muscular aches and pains are a normal part of menopause? Or maybe they are taking supplements such as turmeric and glucosamine targeted towards women in middle age and older, hoping for the relief that they  deserve – but these no longer work for them?  The interview I did with a journalist last year was interesting. She had watched my Masterclass on Menopause, and had picked up on a stat ..read more

Walk away menopausal anxiety, stress and sore joints.

When both Lyndie and Susi (in the photos above) came into my menopause transformation programmes, they were hardly walking anywhere. However, they both experienced fatigue, sore joints, lack of motivation and for Lyndie, her breast cancer treatments left her exhausted. They were also confused about what type of exercise was best for them. But as they moved through the programme, they began to walk more. Lyndie would get up in the morning and stride out over the hills there in Oxfordshire and Susi, found her way through the snowy trails in a Swiss winter and then as summer approached, she wen ..read more
