Why Specialise? Because Menopause Matters

1 billion women are projected to be in menopause by 2025. Never have so many women been at this age and stage at once. 

Of the 500,000+ women who completed the MyMT™ Symptoms Quiz…


Feel like they are lacking energy


Have sore joints


Percieve themselves as being overweight


Are having difficulty sleeping

By following an evidence based, lifestyle programme many of these women went on to restore their energy, vitality and health.

Are you ready to be a part of the solution?

Menopause is having its moment in women’s health and ageing studies.

Not only are researchers interested in the hormonal changes that occur during menopause and the effects of these changes on women’s health, but because women are now living longer and spending on average 30 years in post-menopause, the role of the menopause transition in longevity research is also gaining interest.

In much of this new research, it is very clear that midlife is a time of life, when women need to change their lifestyle to control their symptoms and weight BEFORE they head into their post-menopause years.

The peri-menopause transition is the start of many inflammatory processes to do with ageing. As such, the trajectory towards many diseases of older age such as cardiovascular disease, osteopenia, autoimmune dysfunction, metabolic syndrome and dementia can start during the menopause transition if women don’t get on top of their symptoms.

Your role as a trusted advisor, motivator and supporter, is such an important one. But how effective you are in this role, depends on your knowledge that is specific to the age and stage of your clients.

Bringing your attention to the science of the menopause transition (peri – post menopause) is the goal of the MyMT™ Education courses.

You will come away with an understanding of….


The unique physiological and hormonal changes that occur through midlife 

Changes ahead

How these changes impact the psychology and motivation of women


Proven lifestyle change solutions that are easy to implement with your clients

A menopause revolution is underway. Stay up to date with the latest research and women’s healthy aging science delivered to your inbox each Wednesday. 

Hi, I’m Dr Wendy Sweet (PhD), the founder of My Menopause Transformation and your Coach.

Exploring menopause and post-menopause symptoms through the lens of healthy ageing science as part of my thesis, was pivotal to me turning around my own sleep, sore joints, emotional changes, hot flushes and losing over 15kg in menopause weight. At the time I was a university lecturer, and completing my thesis about the role of exercise on the health of middle aged women. I began to question the advice we were being given in mid-life around our symptom management, supplements, exercise and nutrition.

What I discovered is that the role of other hormones which help to re-balance the body aren’t being factored into the menopause puzzle – this includes sleep, gut and thyroid hormones – all of which are involved in temperature, mood and weight regulation. 

It’s my passion to stay up to date with the latest scientific research for women’s healthy ageing. It’s my privilege to share this with you too.

Frequently Asked Questions

Ann, Nutritionist
Viv, Pilates Studio Owner

Menopause usually starts in our mid-40s and this is known as peri-menopause. Periods start to fluctuate as reproductive hormones decline. 

Women are considered to be in menopause when their periods cease.  From my database of 500,000+ women who have completed the MyMT™ Symptoms Quiz I can tell you that on average this happens at 51 years of age. 

After one year of periods ending, women enter post-menopause where they remain for the rest of their lives. We live nearly half of our life in a completely different hormonal environment, so we need to know how to adjust to this. 

Research suggests that the menopausal transition period is strongly associated with weight gain, which in up to 70% of women, is now a known symptom. The data I have collected over the years confirms this. 

But, here’s the thing. It’s often not a woman’s fault that they are putting on weight! There are so many factors fighting against them. Here are just two examples:

  1. They may not be sleeping – Incredibly, because of our changing hormone levels in menopause, we can add 1-2 kg a week during menopause when we can’t sleep (Theorell-Haglow et al, 2010). 
    When you’re client’s are awake night after night, this means that their glucose-carrying hormone called insulin, remains higher than usual overnight. So too, does their stress hormone called cortisol. When this happens, this interferes with both melatonin and another sleep hormone called Adenosine. All of these hormones play a role in fat cell physiology. 
  2. Oestrogen Dominance – Did you know that fat cells are known to produce their own oestrogen?

    When menopause hormonal changes arrive and women don’t adjust their lifestyle to suit these changes,  fat cells can turn towards storing any excess oestrogen that arrives from our diet and hormone-agents in the environment. When this happens, there is more oestrogen stored in fat cells and this ‘dominates’ the internal environment

If we don’t support our clients to put the brakes on their weight gain during menopause, then this can be a slippery slope towards joint issues, cardiovascular issues and for some, Type 2 Diabetes.

Are your client’s noticing lots of changes going on in their body? Perhaps, they are like Kellie from New Zealand, who told me…

“I think without this programme I would have gone crazy, I had no idea a lot of my symptoms were menopause related. I am now sleeping through the night, no more insomnia or hot flushes keeping me awake, my blood pressure is back to normal, no more heart palpitations and my feet no longer burn at night.”

The common symptoms that are known about in research include: 

  • Interrupted sleep
  • Low energy
  • Night sweats / hot flushes
  • Loss of muscle
  • Weight Gain
  • Irritability
  • Depression
  • Lack of Motivation
  • Worsening prolapse
  • Burning joints / weak bones
  • Low libido
  • Dry skin

But the research is still within its early days.  Women on my programmes are surprised to find that the following symptoms are also likely menopause related:

  • Heart palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Burning tongues 
  • Hair loss
  • Reflux

With oestrogen receptors located all around the body, I am not surprised that there are so many symptoms that women don’t realise are related to menopause. In all three MyMT™ Education Courses, I have bonus information which helps you understand and manage these symptoms. 

Inflammation in the body makes symptoms worse. 

The term ‘inflammaging’ refers to chronic, low-grade inflammation that characterises ageing. And as I keep reminding women, even though we feel young perhaps compared to our mother’s generation at the same age, we must also remember that inside our body, our cells are ageing. Furthermore, when we aren’t sleeping, we aren’t healing from all the stress that we are under.

And I don’t just mean emotional stress. I often talk about women who are undertaking lots of high-intensity exercise most days of the week (as I used to as well). This can increase physical or oxidative stress inside our cells and tissues when we aren’t sleeping well. Like over-trained athletes, we fail to heal properly when we don’t sleep. Inflammation builds up, and this begins to affect some tissues and organs, including the gut microbiota and fat cells. 

If we think about a woman’s experiences over her lifetime that may have caused inflammation, coupled with the fact that peri-menopause and ageing are known to be inflammatory themselves, menopause is the perfect storm for symptom chaos and health changes.

Menopause symptoms, when unresolved can create worsening health problems for women as they age.  I’m talking about things like joint issues, cardiovascular issues and for some, Type 2 Diabetes.

Through undertaking my PhD, I discovered that symptoms are reversible when women have a focus on lifestyle changes which are specific to the menopause transition. How we look after ourselves helps our body to adapt to our changing hormonal environment. By addressing the underlying cause of your client’s menopause symptoms, not only can they experience relief from their symptoms, but they can reduce inflammation, setting them up for better health in their older years.

This is what you learn on the MyMT™ Education CPD Courses – all the scientifically evidenced, step by step lifestyle strategies to help you to understand how to support your clients to reduce their symptoms and take back control of their health. 

No matter whether your clients are on Menopause Hormonal Therapy (MHT) or not, then their are lifestyle solutions that help them to reduce their hot flushes, improve their sleep, turn around sore joints and muscles, and turn around  oestrogen dominance, which may be the cause of their menopause weight gain.

My women’s healthy ageing research led me to position menopause in our biological ageing. It’s a natural life-event that all women go through. When I struggled with my own symptoms in menopause, despite taking endless supplements and MHT, I learnt that many women in other cultures don’t experience the symptoms that many women living in western societies experience. 

If women are on MHT, then this is a decision between them and their Doctor. Many women go on MHT for reasons other than hot flush management (e.g. to manage osteoporosis risk or heart disease risk or depression), so the decision to go on or even come off their hormone therapy is a decision that they must make with their medical specialist.

Change women’s lives

How do I know you can do this? Because women tell me what a difference the MyMT™ programmes have made to their lives. Not only are they losing weight, but their sore joints, sleepless nights, mood swings, brain fog, tiredness and hot flushes are gone. Read their testimonials here.
