It IS possible to make your menstrual cycle work to your advantage! And in your 40s this is ever more helpful and important.

Then I’ll outline some nutrition, exercise and emotional wellbeing considerations for each of the phases.
IT’S A NATURAL PHASE! What the media, supplement companies and some so-called ‘experts’ will have you believe though is that perimenopause IS a set symptoms, a pathology, or a condition. Nope.
