Why choose a Menopause and Mindset coach?
Menopause if you listened to the media speaks doom and gloom but with the right mindset and the right support system in place it can be a new you! and the right menopause coach will empower you through this period of change inclusive of supporting you every step of the way. Some people come out of menopause thinking it was the best time of their lives as they gained clarity and became a stronger version of themselves!
A menopause coach is someone who can empathise and a lot of people going through this period of life feel lonely! A coach has your back! will help you with clarity, motivation, positive mindset and guide you to make healthy choices. They will also be your place you can talk openly and it will be your safe space! No thought is trivial! During menopause, you can lose confidence and motivation to make those choices so a good coach can help you through new behaviours and help you stay accountable for the new you! As an Angel therapist, the work I do already deals with the symptoms of menopause and very quickly symptoms are reduced so when we add menopause coaching to the mix it becomes a time of amazing changes!
Men also go through male menopause and I get many men coming to me with this so ladies be gentle with the guys too.
I would advise using an app called Balance which is free of charge. It has lots of information and allows you to log your cycle and symptoms accurately to share with your coach or GP.
There are over 30 symptoms of menopause;
difficulty concentrating, weight gain, stress incontinence, brittle nails, allergies, irregular heartbeat, body odour changes, irritability, panic disorder, osteoporosis, hot flushes, night sweats, irregular periods, mood swings, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, headaches, breast tenderness, burning mouth, joint pain, digestive problems, electric shocks, muscle tension, gum problems, itchy skin, sleep problems, hair loss, tinnitus and memory lapses.
It is important to know what is happening to your body as when we understand something then it is easier to accept that what is happening to us is normal. At a session, we discuss all the hormones and why you are feeling like you are but again this is 'normal' Now let us talk a little bit of those hormones that cause the issues! On the page, I won't talk about Cortisol, FSH, LH Or Progesterone but I will in the session just to help you understand what is happening to you ! No, you are not going crazy but we do need to calm your body down.
I will discuss Oestrogen, E1 & E2 and testosterone though briefly just so you can understand what is happening to your body.
During Menopause we have those pesky hormone changes! which the decline of oestrogen is not slow and steady but up and down which causes the roller coaster of emotions! We need to focus on E1 and E2 during the phase of Menopause. The decline of Testosterone also is responsible for many things. Testosterone helps with our libido, confidence, and mental clarity and stabilises our moods so when this declines it is responsible for lots of things including brain fog!
Nutrition and gut health
Good nutrition and gut health are so important during menopause which I help you with during our sessions. In a nutshell though during menopause, the gut talks to the brain via the enteric nervous system. This means that mental health affects the gut. Maintaining healthy levels of resilience so excess stress can be avoided. Remember a happy bowel is a happy mind and as a nutrition advisor, everyone knows my thoughts on the bowel! During menopause, it can increase bouts of constipation and we are going through enough without adding pelvic organ prolapse to the mix so we want to avoid that at all costs if possible!
Good ways to improve your gut health!
1) Diaphragm breathing which relaxes the enteric nervous system in the gut.
2) Feed your gut good bacteria ie leeks, garlic, ginger, soaked oats, insoluble and soluble fibre
3) Starve the bad bacteria which we can do by eliminating excess sugar, gluten and dairy.
A powder that is very good to add to food during menopause is Maca Root and some studies have shown beneficial properties to help with ;
Acne, stamina, fatigue, insomnia, depression, infertility, menopause, sex enhancer, boosts energy, low sperm count, hormone balancer, adrenal gland function, mental and physical vitality, high in potassium and calcium and increases libido.
The menopause can cause many issues with the bladder and most of my clients complain about the bladder but I show them how we can reverse this. Healing again! :) They look at me gormless till their sensitive bladders become a thing of the past. Honestly, GPs won't find a reason for it and one client was on antibiotics monthly until she came to me and now hasn't has another since! Your bladders love me :) but more than that clients do :)
Menopause can cause sensitivity, prolapse, atrophy or incontinence.
My favourite tip when I was on the course for Menopause coach! Have an orgasm! There has to be some perks to the menopause but to be fair some don't need a reason. There is a reason for this it strengthens the pelvic muscles. As a ball of energy I have always loved this part of life and chakras of the body receive an unrestricted flow of energy. I have always had a good sex drive though and when I started investigating Menopause I realised why.
Avoid too many stimulants like dark chocolate and coffee! This really does trigger that sensitivity!
Learn how to activate your pelvic floor muscles before a cough or sneeze. They advise to do this on a trampoline. Make sure there are no kids about as they are little buggers if they see an adult on a trampoline!! before you know it they are bouncing in the air trying to kill you and getting off will become mission impossible!
Diaphragmatic breathing as it relaxes the area.
Pilates to help maintain muscles within the pelvic area. If you are new to pilates and don't want to venture to a class. I advise you type in Youtube pilates for a bad back ... trust me on this one! even if you don't have a bad back lol.
If sex is painful use a dilator and take it slow.
Diet and menopause health
To help to maintain bone strength and density and prevent osteoporosis, you should look out for two nutrients that are associated with bone health: calcium and vitamin D. The amount of people that tell me "I take vitamin D" but when I look at their calcium intake and explain they need to have enough of both as they work well together but just vitamin D on its own will not work on reducing fractures.
Important sources of calcium are:
Vitamin D is also important for bone health as it helps the absorption of calcium from foods. Vitamin D is produced in our skin when we are exposed to sunlight.
Important dietary vitamin D sources are:
Women who are post-menopausal have an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and so it is important to make sure you are eating foods that help to protect your heart.
Several dietary factors, supplements and herbal remedies have been suggested to be of benefit in relieving symptoms of the menopause. There has been a lot of interest in the role of phytoestrogens (the two main types are isoflavones and lignans) as they are similar in structure to oestrogen and therefore may help to alleviate some of the symptoms of low oestrogen levels associated with the menopause. These substances are found in plants.
There is some evidence that consuming isoflavones in foods or as supplements can help to reduce the menopausal symptoms of hot flushes and vaginal dryness. However, more studies are needed to confirm whether isoflavone supplements are safe and effective in reducing menopause symptoms.
A healthy balanced diet is always a win/win situation regardless of your time of life! It is never too early to make those changes. Everything in moderation including alcohol :)
