Have you been feeling a little off lately?

You might be going through menopause and it can be hard to talk about especially when you feel out of sorts during this time. The good news is, you are in a natural process that every woman goes through and there are things you can do to find balance in your life again.

And it doesn’t have to be painful or uncomfortable.

Since it’s a natural process, temporary fixes like synthetic hormones may help the symptoms for a while but if you’ve been feeling a little off lately because of hot flashes, mood swings, and poor sleep quality, your brilliant body might be telling you something and it’s time to listen to it.

Remember: Some women deal with more symptoms than others. Some women deal with less, while some don’t experience any.

As women go through menopause, we experience many changes that can affect our hormones and our body.

We talk about this in more detail in today’s podcast with Dr. Wendy Leigh White, a practicing naturopathic doctor and nutritionist. She shares what the non-diet approach is and why moving towards health is what she advises her clients. Dr. Wendy Leigh also gives tips on getting restful sleep or getting back to sleep when insomnia strikes. We discuss the emotions tied to food and homeostasis.

We believe in living your best life possible, which means feeling good physically, mentally and emotionally. Our goal is for you to have all of these things so you can enjoy your life more fully—the natural way. Tune in to this podcast today because you deserve it!
