  • Nutrition is a powerful tool to support you through perimenopause and beyond

    Beginning in our 40s (or even late 30s), our bodies start to show the first signs of aging, and we may begin the transition to menopause. During this time, hormone levels fluctuate, which can impact our mood, energy levels, and sleep patterns, to name a few. On top of that, there are health risks associated with menopause, such as increased risk for heart disease and bone loss.

    Nutrition is a powerful tool. It can help you manage your energy levels and delay or reduce the risk of health conditions that come with aging and menopause. Whether it's digestive changes due to fluctuating hormones, managing high cholesterol, or learning to preserve bone health, you can nourish your body to support your health and feel good.

    I take a non-diet, weight-inclusive approach to health and nutrition because I know you have better things to do with your time and energy than go on another diet. And because everyone deserves respectful, non-stigmatizing healthcare.

    Together, we look at foods you can add to your eating pattern to support your health while working to create a peaceful relationship with food.
