Discover the link between your sore joints and changing oestrogen levels during Menopause.

It’s not often a week goes by when I don’t receive messages and emails  from women who are curious to know if their sore joints and aching muscles are anything to do with menopause. It’s the same when women come to my live-events. When I ask who has sore joints and muscles, many hands shoot […]

How your muscles age and why your recovery after exercise may be slower during menopause.

Winter is arriving down-under and if you have been following my newsletters for a while (thank you) then you will know that we are a family of skiers.

Swollen ankles, fluid retention and why a long-haul flight needs managing in menopause.

It wasn’t their tired faces I was interested in. It was their swollen ankles. Mine were swollen too – but not as much as theirs were. 24 hours of flying across the world and as I got off the plane so too did three middle age women who were sitting across the aisle from me. […]
