My Personal Pledge to You
Most women joining me on the MyMT™ programmes are just like I was – spending huge amounts of money on various supplements, hormone creams, weight loss diets, Doctor’s visits, blood tests, Personal Trainers, HRT, health specialists and whatever else we can think of, to try and alleviate how we are feeling.
All this because menopause symptoms are distracting us from our day-to-day life. We just keep trying to grab what remedies we can. Some work for a while, some don’t. I was driven to despair.
Lack of sleep, endless hot flushes, increased anxiety, sore joints and muscles, mood swings and for me, unstoppable belly fat, not only left me feeling exhausted, but left me concerned about my future health.
One day, after purchasing yet another supplement from a young saleswoman, who had no idea what I was going through, and knowing that my blood pressure and cholesterol were climbing, despite being on HRT, I had had ‘enough’.
It was my ‘lightbulb’ moment. I realised that nobody was taking a ‘whole-body’ approach to menopause symptoms. Furthermore, with menopause management situated in the medical and complementary medicine paradigm, I also realised that there was no emphasis on evidenced lifestyle advice.
That’s when I knew I had to use my physiology and healthy ageing knowledge and experience, not only as a former nurse, but also as a leading exercise specialist in New Zealand and university lecturer, to figure out how to turn around menopause symptoms and my health, so I could ‘age-well’.
That’s how MyMT™ began nearly a decade ago. I designed it for me, but it’s now available for women around the world. My Masterclass on Menopause events attracted hundreds of women who wanted what I wanted myself …. and that is to feel like ourselves again.
“All I wanted was a Menopause Transformation and nobody had the integrated solution for sleep, nutrition, health and exercise – so I designed it for all of us.”

Meet Wendy Sweet
“Hi Ladies – my name is Wendy Sweet and I welcome you to My Menopause Transformation. I never thought I would be setting up my two 12 week online programmes, but with my own struggles and then listening to women all over New Zealand tell me similar stories as part of my Doctoral Studies on women’s healthy ageing, I knew something had to be done.
For over 30 years I have been involved in New Zealand’s health and exercise industry. Although my original career was as an ICU nurse and I’m not practicing any more, I re-trained and helped to pioneer the Personal Training industry in New Zealand.
Once I left this industry, I returned to education and not only was I lecturing in sport, exercise, nutrition and health physiology, but I was so interested in how to help people change their lifestyle behavior, that I undertook my Masters studies in this area.
Then I went on to do my Doctoral studies in the Faculty of Health, Sports and Human Performance at Waikato University. My desire was to better understand how women perceived their ageing and the role of exercise during their menopause transition. I am so pleased that I did!
Because what I discovered was that our menopause transition is the time to change our lifestyle in readiness for the next 20-30 years of living we still have to enjoy.
Suddenly being in a different hormonal environment, what we have done in the past to manage our health, energy and weight, simply may not work any more. Not many health coaches and other professionals understand this, because there has been very little research on the menopause transition and lifestyle changes.
Desperate to turn around my own health, weight and symptoms in a natural way, I set out to untangle the menopause-mayhem jigsaw. Everything I discovered is now in two fabulous programmes called My Menopause Transformation.
Thousands of women around the world have joined me on these life-changing programmes. You can read some of their stories HERE.
“It all made so much sense!"
You gave me the confidence to think good sleep was normal and the encouragement ot deal with the changes in menopause rather than be a victim.
Take the MyMT™ Symptoms Quiz
Menopause symptoms are a result of changing hormone levels, primarily oestrogen and progesterone, which affect the balance of other hormones too. So menopause changes can upset your body’s unique bio-chemistry. But every one of your symptoms is reversible if you change your lifestyle and allow your body to adapt to its ‘new normal.’ This is what MyMT delivers to you – all the scientifically evidenced step-by-step strategies which you access over 12 weeks, so you discover how to work with your changing hormones in menopause, not against them.
There are no hormone medications or supplements. How to restore the hormonal harmony that menopause takes away is waiting for you in the exclusive member area now.
