A mental pause for menopause

When you asked for a smoking hot body, was menopause what you had in mind?
The Lake Wānaka Centre is hosting an adults-only seminar on ‘Sailing through menopause' on October 9 from 6.30pm to 8pm—and it's free to register. The seminar is focused on educating its attendees about menopause and how to prepare their bodies for this change. Subjects covered include what to expect, how to prepare, how to problem-solve menopause symptoms and functional medicine testing.
“I feel the opening seminar was so successful as women feel much more empowered through education, and also to understand there are natural alternatives that can help improve not only their menopause symptoms, but improve their overall health. The seminar was kept intimate with a limit of 30 places, to create a sense of intimacy and a place to discuss a very personal topic that sooner or later we as woman must all face. There was an opportunity to ask questions, and try some nutritious low inflammation friendly treats.” said functional medicine practitioner Kaz von Heraud-Parker. “We can be in the transitional phase for 10 years or more, and yet we are not really prepared for this. It is not something our mothers pass down information on, whether this is because they don't remember, or they were one of the lucky ones that were not affected. Life has become more toxic, some babies in the USA are born with over 200 chemicals in their umbilical cords, this means that on a daily basis our liver is having to remove increasingly higher amounts of toxins, and this can cause more symptoms through menopause. As hormone levels change, this can create havoc with our health, and for a lot of women they are looking for natural solutions. This can be an opportunity to be able to reset your health for your future, as our bodies have to adapt to having lower estrogen levels, which tends to create more inflammation, and as we know inflammation can be the root cause of a lot of disease states.”
Heraud Parker added, “It has been a subject that is not often discussed, I felt woman really enjoyed learning in a safe and friendly environment.”
