Description

I polled people on IG last month and almost 80% of people that saw my story said they felt like they have food sensitivities. So, that’s a problem because once you dive into the intricacies of that there is a lot of nuances.

So to help with this & answer the question I get in so many different flavors each week, I’m hosting a live training and Q&A session called “What should I eat? Answering your questions about food reactions and inflammation”.

This week I talk to Maria Claps, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist with Wise and Well about what is REALLY happening in perimenopause. An often neglected topic yet so important for those beginning or already in this transition time in their lives and also practitioners looking to help. Maria and Kristin candidly discuss symptoms, treatment, and lifestyle considerations for those in midlife mayhem.


KEY TAKEAWAYS:

  • Symptoms of declining hormones? Mood, sleep, weight, brain fog 
  • What is happening behind the scenes in menopausal transition perimenopause (including usual timeframe (the early 40s)
  • Period changes during perimenopause
  • Biomarkers for inflammation
  • Entering perimenopause in a lower inflammatory state will help ease symptoms for a smoother transition
  • What are common things we blame on "hormones" that are not hormones
  • Functional decline of aging- what's normal, what's not as we age and our body changes
  • Hormone replacement therapy

GUESTS SHARED HELPFUL TIPS ON:

  • How to rehab your hormones/ adrenals
  • Identifying what is going on in the cycle and how to support it
  • Understanding that everyone's experience is very different
  • Tips for women in midlife to optimize health and wellness (what are a few things women are doing that are keeping them stuck)


ABOUT GUESTS:

Maria Claps, an FDN practitioner, and Kristin Johnson, a Board-certified nutritionist, are plainspoken friends and practitioners who share a passion for women's health, especially women's health at midlife. As both are themselves menopausal, they've refined the art and science of thriving as a midlife woman based on both clinical and personal experience. They combine individualized nutrition and lifestyle changes tailored to midlife women's needs with mindset coaching, lab testing, and hormone replacement therapy education to help women thrive so that they can stop or prevent their health from spinning out of control.
