Nutrition and hormones play a big part in our general health and well-being, and it may be especially important in perimenopause and menopause to help control symptoms. Phytoestrogens such as soy products, flaxseeds, chickpeas, and lentils can help some women by replacing the estrogen the body no longer produces. Women in this time are often short on magnesium, which can be replaced by foods or supplements. Fiber can relieve constipation in menopause brought on by slower digestion; Omega 3s for women may help with memory and mental acuity. A diet rich in vegetables and lean protein helps with weight management and supports bone health. Ditching sugar may help with menopause symptoms; increasing vitamin D can help with mood and energy.
We also offer our HealthFix membership, which allows you to work one on one with a registered dietitian nutritionist to create a personalized menopause plan, drawing attention to eating habits and nutrition choices.
