Dr Louise Newson: Don't Fear The Menopause

Outspoken Beauty

This is such an important episode whether like me you're aware that perimenopause could strike at any time or you're experiencing the menopause right now. Actually, I also think this is important even if you're in your twenties as knowledge is power and when it comes to the menopause many of us are anything but empowered.In the episode I'm joined by Dr Louise Newson who is a GP and Menopause Specialist. Louise is on a mission to educate us about what is available to us once we are peri menopausal/menopausal and also how to get the right treatment from our Drs.Many women go to their GPs feeling depressed or anxious due to fluctuating hormones and Dr Louise explains how many of us are prescribed anti-depressants which is anything but helpful. We also chat about HRT and how more of us can take it than we realise (we just need to be prescribed the right one), supplements and keeping strong and vital as we age. Dr Louise's website is an absolute fountain of knowledge and is well worth checking out after the episode. You can find her at menopausedoctor.co.uk.As well as my interview with Louise I also have a list of lovely recommendations for you at the end of the episode 2 fabulous perfumes, a great hair product for texture and some gorgeous makeup bits. Enjoy! xx
