Routine Checkup: Dr. Jen Gunter's Menopause Manifesto
Menopause is often shrouded in shame, fear and a general lack of understanding; Dr. Jen Gunter is here to set the record straight. Dr. Gunter is a Canadian ob-gyn and fierce women's health advocate, best known for her TED Talks and for writing The Vagina Bible. This week she joins the fellas for a discussion on de-stigmatizing menopause, the gaps in knowledge on men's and women's health in the medical field and how just a small amount of knowledge can make a big difference in navigating healthcare.
Dr Jen Gunter returns to the podcast to discuss all things menopause; the biology of it and the narrative around it.In researching her latest book, The Menopause Manifesto, it struck Jen how the patriarchal narrative around menopause was actually hindering women, which is why the book became a manifesto to empower women with accurate information around what happens to their bodies during this time.As she says in the show, ‘it shouldn’t be an act of feminism to understand menopause, but it is’. During this conversation, @drjengunter and I discuss:Why it’s so wrong to think of your last period as an expiry date on your femininity.Why being empowered and making empowered choices requires access to accurate information.Why a patriarchal society doesn’t get to determine a woman’s worth.The lifestyle choices you make in your 20s and 30s that can positively impact your long-term health and your menopause experience.Why life can be better post-menopause.How pseudo-science and snake oil have nothing to offer you other than to take your money.The role of supplementation is treating menopause symptoms and whether anything will actually work.Plus, many mentions of Thor, Chris Hemsworth, Gal Gal Gadot and Idris Elba.The Menopause Manifesto by Dr Jen Gunter is available now.The Vagina Bible by Dr Jen Gunter is available now.To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
