During the menopause, hormonal changes can lead to more fat mass and less muscle mass in the body, which can increase disease risk in the longer term. As oestrogen levels drop there is also a higher risk of some cancers. Research shows that both cardiovascular disease and cancer risk can be greatly reduced through regular exercise and good nutrition. In addition, bone health can reduce post-menopause and exercise is a proven method of increasing bone health if implemented safely.
For many women menopause is not only a physical change but also a mental one too. Exercise and optimising nutrition can help to boost mood, reduce the risk of depression and increase cognitive performance regardless of hormonal changes.
We provide personalised, inspirational care that not only helps your body to cope with the menopause, but your mind too, so you can feel fully in control of your health at an important moment of change.
