Menopausal health effects everyone (even men) – exploring its impact within the work setting in an empowering and informative way is a key strand of any employee well-being programme.
Laura’s popular ‘Menopausal Well-being – Turning Nutrition into your Superpower’ has been delivered to many organisations, including the BBC and NHS England with great feedback.
Sessions brings to life (in a non-preachy way) the latest research on how food and nutrition can support the hormonal changes and symptoms associated with menopause, for example hot flushes, raised anxiety, cognitive function, changes to body weight and increased risks to bone and cardiovascular health.
Also delve a bit deeper, to look at the emotional and mental wellbeing side of menopause. How do we feel about our changing body image? How do we navigate and decide how to nourish ourselves, especially when faced with idealistic diet culture? And how do we truly define what it means to be healthy as we age?
Attendees take away some actionable tips and a fresh perspective.
Perimenopausal symptoms are wide, varying and at times all encompassing. Nutrition is foundational to how any woman navigates through this phase. Exploring it in the context of both mind and body allows every woman the opportunity to feel attuned and supported and to ultimately thrive within the workplace.
