During the retreat, I will be focusing on WHY we suffer with menopause symptoms. Including low mood, irritability, weight gain (especially round the middle), anxiety, brain fog and low libido. Why do hot flushes, the most common symptom of the menopause, effect 70–80% of women in Europe but only 18% in China? The answer: diet.
Menopause is often connected with a ‘turning point’ in life – a sense that what now follows will be different from what went before. This is referred to by the Japanese as having an awareness of ‘fu shi me’; a defined mental outlook.
I’ll be looking at what foods are key to combat symptoms and to bring us back to an even keel. I also be sharing some of my favourite supplements for this time of life too.
The day will also include a 2 course nutrient dense plant based lunch, a take home toolkit written by myself and a bag of gifts to start you on your new path.
24 April, 930am for a 10am start to 230pm in the private dining room at The Ginger Pig, Hove.
