Announcing a major shift in focus for Shift for Health!May 27, 2022
Last fall, I discovered that I’m in perimenopause. I had been experiencing new-to-me symptoms, did some research and couldn’t believe it - I thought menopause wasn’t something I needed to worry about until my 50’s! But it turns out the hormone fluctuations leading up to a woman’s final menstrual period can last FIVE TO FIFTEEN YEARS!
The more I researched, the more I realized that I knew nothing about a natural process that all women will go through. A process that literally hundreds of millions of women are going through as I type. A process that for a lucky few will be smooth but for the vast majority of women will be really challenging.
So I dove into the research, and what I found was both deeply frustrating and also hopeful.
I was heartbroken by the tragic history of menopause, which has resulted in the needless suffering of countless women. Even now, medical students and residents report getting little to no training on diagnosing and treating women who are experiencing common symptoms of perimenopause – even though fluctuating estrogen and progesterone levels impact every system in a woman’s body. I'm here to say, women deserve better!
The good news is that there are soooooooo many actionable things women can do to minimize or mitigate disruptive menopause symptoms, which is why I’ve decided to devote my health coaching practice to educating, empowering and supporting women through the menopause transition.
I’m so excited to announce the relaunch of Shift for Health with a focus on coaching women through menopause. If you’re a woman aged 40-60, you’re going to want to stay tuned. I have great content and an amazing new coaching program headed your way. Because you deserve to know what’s happening in your body, what you can do about it, and how to implement those new healthy habits.
