There is no substitute for a healthy, varied diet and my belief is that you should aim to get the nutrients you need from the food you eat.
However, as you age and particularly as you transition through the menopause, you sometimes need a little extra support from supplements to help balance your hormones, protect your body from damage and provide additional support if you are struggling to absorb the nutrients in your food.
Which supplements do I need?
That’s a very good question!
Social media feeds are full of promotions and claims regarding the health benefits of supplements these days. It’s a minefield out there and not all supplements will actually do you any good.
In fact, some of the cheap ones are just a waste of money as they are full of fillers (sometimes sugar!) and very few active ingredients. They can also interfere with medication you may be taking, so taking advice is really important.
Don’t just take what your mate is taking as their circumstances (history, symptoms and genetic makeup) will always be different and what is right for them may actually be harmful to you.

Supplementing through the menopause
As part of the programmes I offer, I will take a detailed look at your personal circumstances to see whether a tailored supplementation programme is required. Supplements are not for the long term but choosing the right ones when required can really work and help deliver faster results. If supplementation will be helpful, it will be recommended at an additional cost.
If you are struggling with menopausal symptoms and just don’t feel yourself, book a call to see whether a personalised programme tailored to you can help get your life back on track.
