We're telling our truth in this episode and it wasn't easy! We're joined by Jowita Bydlawska, author of "Drunk Mom" to talk about women and alcohol. How do current 'mom memes' encourage us to drink and do we realize the damage we're doing to our bodies and brains? The added downside of booze is that it adds nothing but grief to our menopause sympto…
 
We didn't use to think so but after speaking with Kim Vopni - the Vagina Coach, we've learned so much about how things work 'down there' and why it might be 'common' but it is FAR from normal to pee your pants. Kim shares some really helpful information that will inspire you to take a hand mirror for a little tour. How are things functioning? How a…
 
When you’re having a hot flash, memory loss or sleepless nights does it ever feel like no one is listening? You’re not alone. And partly because in the past, no one WAS listening. That might be because treating hormones can feel dangerous to doctors. Many don't have a lot of training in this area. Lack of menopausal care is a huge disservice to wom…
 
Menopause can be a challenging time for most women but we’re happy to see more and more options than ever when it comes to managing our health and symptoms. From hormones to herbs, vitamins, and other holistic options, we are finally being given solutions. Prior to a few years ago, the treatment of menopause was very medical based. Our doctors were…
 
How many times have we walked into our doctor’s appointment only to forget what we wanted to ask? Heck, if you’re in menopause, how many times have you walked into your own damn kitchen and forgotten what you were there for? Memory aside, women must take their health into their own hands when it comes to coping and dealing with peri/menopause. Why?…
 
Is Hormone Replacement Treatment HRT safe? Safe for everyone? Safe for you? It’s a question many of us have asked ourselves and our doctors for years but have you ever felt confident with the answer? Back in 2002 the publication of a landmark study warned of the potential negative side-effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The report scared…
 
Some topics that are really close to our heart and Traditional Chinese Medicine is one of them. Not just because of the relief it can offer women going through peri/menopause but because of its approach to women and the change in general. It is far more optimistic, embracing, and unapologetic than our North American perspective and we find that hop…
 
Hey Samual Jackson! We have no problem going to sleep. It's staying asleep that we struggle with. In fact, sleep is one of the most common problems women experience with perimenopause. A lack of sleep triggers a series of other issues like stress, anxiety, fatigue amongst other things. How's a gal supposed to function? We figure helping you sleep i…
 
One of the most common symptoms of menopause is memory loss. We can't find our keys, remember what we were just going to say, forget the word to describe that thingamajiggy we need. It starts off slowly but as we start to lose our nouns, we start to really worry that we might be headed for disaster. Recently in the news we'd read that there has bee…

Sandra Zager is a Reiki Master & Instructor for both people and animals (admit it, doesn’t hormone rage make you feel just a little bit like a wild animal?). She is also certified in long d…

You may have heard that ‘shrooms’ (psilocybin) are making a comeback. The use of psychedelics is being touted as helpful for depression, anxiety, smoking cessation, PTSD and many other conditions. They’re also a great support for some of our menopause symptoms. We’ve tried a daily dose and can attest to its calming properties and its ability to hel…

Whether we want children or not, could have them or not or weren’t even sure about the topic all together, going into menopause takes all the decision making away from us. It’s like Mother Nature pulls the rug out from under us and says ‘There. No more babies for you!” It’s a lot to process. Imagine if the ability to start a family was taken away f…
 
While some of us are embracing aging gracefully, we admit that we might be raging against it – just a little! But like most consumers, we’re wary of brands that tout key messages over key ingredients. If we’re going to drop a lot of dough on a new skincare regime, we want to know that the brand we’re buying really understands the changes our skin g…

It was hard to find women who were happy to come forward and not only…
 
We think that after everything that’s happened this past year, we all deserve a MONTH off for the holidays! The season ahead is going to be a challenge for many of us who are combining menopause symptoms with many areas in the Red Zone or, like us, full lockdown. That makes holiday shopping even more chaotic! Thank god for egg nog and wine! Tune in…
 
It’s hard to talk about a topic no one seems to want to talk about. Take menopause, for example. So how do you talk to the people in your life about this important change? How do you let your husband know it’s not him or tell your kids that sometimes Mommy comes unglued? Better yet, in an ageist workforce – how do you gain support and understanding…
 
Most of us don’t really understand the function or location of our pelvic floor. Some of us couldn’t locate it even with GPS. In fact, it was only a few months ago that one of us even realized we had a pelvic floor! In this episode we’re talking to Nav Grewal, BSc, MScPT, Pelvic Physiotherapist who shares a thing or 10 that we didn’t know about pel…

Endorphins really are a great ally during this pandemic. In fact, with so much screen time and time around the house, we’re starting to feel a little unglued! So, what’s the best way to keep your mind sharp and your anxiety down during both perimenopause and a global pandemic? You guessed it – EXERCISE. Did we hear a groan? Or was that us? Exercise…
 
We get a lot of terminology thrown at us by the healthcare system. Add symptoms of perimenopause and we practically need to keep Wikipedia open on our phones permanently just to understand what the heck is going on with our bodies! This week we’re going to throw another word at you: endocannabinoid Did you know our bodies all have an endocannabinoi…
 
This week we are excited to share our conversation with Dr. Jess O’Reilly or ‘Sex with Dr. Jess’ as we know her. We really wanted to get Jess’s opinion on lowered libidos due to both hormone changes from perimenopause and a global pandemic. Jess never fails to wow us with some great insights. We were both left with some great takeaways and we think…
 
I don’t know about you, but I was always led to believe that menopause was charted on a course we have no control over. We would simply have to find a way to live with the cards we were dealt and there is no real remedy for the symptoms we might go through. In other words, buckle up and suffer through it. The more I look into it, the more I realize…
