“I don’t need as much thyroxine now I’ve lost 5 kg. I’m finally feeling great – no more afternoon sleeps and heaps of energy.” [Danni, NZ]

When your office window at Auckland University of Technology in New Zealand, has a view of the Sky Tower, it serves to keep you motivated to reach for the sky in all that you want to achieve in your life. But when mid-life health problems curtail your energy and you can hardly get through your […]

Boost immunity, fight fatigue and protect your ageing heart in menopause with this powerful nutrient our body needs.

When my mid-life menopausal body hobbled along to my Doctor, Physio, Personal Trainer and Podiatrist with sore joints, muscles and various aches and pains, not one of them mentioned my new ‘heroine’ of menopause joint and muscle health – Vitamin C – and to be fair to these wonderful specialists, nor did I give this […]

Why you need to boost your aerobic exercise during menopause and beyond.

The image above is Kaye. Previously living in Cairns, Australia, she now lives in New Zealand and this photo was taken when she ran her very first marathon. Amazing! 16kgs down and slow jogging her way around the 42km course. I still remember her email to me when she first joined the MyMT™ weight loss […]

“I’m slimmer, healthier and full of gratitude for your MyMT™ programme.” – Bev Rhodes

“Before I began this programme I was exhausted and overweight. You made my decision to look after myself so much easier with the research you have completed and put into this programme. There is much I want to fit in to the rest of my life still and now I feel I have the energy […]

“I am feeling so much more energised, in control and just happy. It kinda feels unbelievable really.” – (Andrea, Australia)

Meet Andrea – she loves painting. This is her sitting on the steps outside her studio where she lives in Australia.

“I’m off HRT and anti-depressants and have lost over 8kg. My life is back on track.” – Pauline, New Zealand

In a shout-out to healthcare workers who I have shared some of their mid-life journey with, I want to acknowledge Aged-Care nurse, Pauline. She first came on the programme feeling exhausted from her shift work and not understanding how her stress was impacting on her sleep and symptoms during menopause.  “I’m feeling so tired all […]

With the Covid19 outbreak, it’s vital for women in menopause or post-menopause to improve lung function and here’s why.

Yesterday, I went swimming for my workout. I did a few lengths of overarm and then a few lengths of butterfly. Yes, butterfly! Each time I hit the end of the pool, I was breathing deeply with effort. But that’s the effect I needed. You see, I wanted to expand my lungs – get them […]

“The difference to how I felt a year ago is incredible.” – Jo, NZ

I love this photo of Jo. I took it when we met at one of my live ‘Masterclass on Menopause’ events. It was so great to meet her after our numerous emails over the past few months and I’m so grateful that she has allowed me to share her story with you all. There are […]

“I’ve lost 5 kg, but best of all, my energy is back. MyMT was the best investment I made in ‘me’.” – Sally Bower

All Sally wanted was to have the energy she used to have, so she could get back mountain-bike riding with hubbie on the weekends. It’s what they had done together for years. Finally having the time for more recreational activities when she became an ’empty-nester’ at 55 years, Sally ended up feeling cheated by menopause. […]
