Why menopause matters in mid- life! Presented by Wendy Sweet
Wed, March 22, 2017, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM NZDT
My fascination with the link between menopause and healthy ageing
began when peri-menopause came raging along when I was 50. It took me by surprise. And when I heard from my PhD participants
that they had similar issues, I realised that women in their 50's are FORGOTTEN when it comes to understanding what to do to turn
around menopause symptoms, including weight gain WITHOUT resorting to expensive, short-acting supplements and HRT. So I
decided to look into it. And in that process I turned around my energy levels and my mid-life health including losing the 15 kg that
menopause had deposited on all those areas of my body that mattered to me – my bust, hips, diaphragm and stomach. All without
the emphasis on vigorous exercise which I tried, but which made my symptoms worse.
This is what this seminar is about. I am a leading wellness educator following careers framed by nursing and then working in the
health and fitness industry. I have lectured in numerous topics at university level from physiology to nutrition and wellbeing. I have
run corporate wellness programs and delivered a ton of seminars.
But this one is the most important. I want to get the word out that MID-LIFE MATTERS to women. And in an ageing world, women
must remain healthy, relevant and energetic. We are often still working and have a lot still to get done – another 30 years of living in
fact. If this is you, but menopause has blind-sided your energy, your weight and your mojo, then join me.
I won't let you down.
“Wendy has an enormous amount of knowledge in this under-researched
area. She was fascinating and given that she is doing a thesis on ageing in
the 50-65 area, she needs to come back!”
“Wow, what a great session. I really didn’t know anything about this topic.
Wendy certainly had a wealth of information. She simplified it enough to
understand. It gave me a greater understanding of the differences in women
at this stage in life.”
