1. MENOPAUSE & PERIMENOPAUSE
Supporting the transition
During their 40s and 50s, women may present with a range of symptoms that are linked to the hormonal changes associated with the peri/menopause. This can include erratic and heavy periods, insomnia, hot flushes and anxiety – plus a whole lot more. This seminar will explain the physiological changes that impact women’s lives during this crucial life-stage and give you some strategies to help your clients have a better menopause. We will discuss the pros and cons of HRT, how herbs and nutrition play a key role in holistic treatment, and why stress and burnout increase the severity of symptoms. Education and prevention are key – join this seminar to make sure you have the most up to date knowledge on menopause to better support your patients.
