How understanding the brain-hormone connection can help women to navigate menopause.
Although women know how to run major corporations and can travel in space, there is little understanding of an event that inevitably awaits them - menopause - and a lack of practical knowledge about how to best navigate this natural passage in life.
Menopause can impact a woman's health, relationships, daily functioning, career, mood and emotions, and can profoundly impair her quality of life. Understanding the connection between hormonal changes in the female body, the brain and, indeed, the gut provides us with the fundamentals for transitioning through what can be a challenging - if not overwhelming - time for many women.
By breaking the silence that surrounds menopause, The Feel Good Guide to Menopause aims to reduce the potential for negative impact, build understanding, compassion and reassurance, and significantly improve the mental and physical well-being of women.
