They all know that these changes have only come on during their menopause transition, but like Pauline, no one was showing them how to turn this around…the only solution to date as Pauline discovered too, was to go on HRT, anti-depressants and sleeping tablets. But these medications changed her energy levels. In fact, they made her energy levels worse.
That’s why I’m so pleased Pauline decided that her future health mattered. As a nursing home care-giver, she knew that it didn’t feel right to just feel so un-healthy all the time. Most importantly, how she was feeling was affecting her energy and motivation to do the job she loved doing.
When she reached out for support through the MyMT™ programme her desperation in her email was profound –
“I have tried many natural products to get a better night’s sleep, to no avail. I’ve also taken HRT for 6 years but enough is enough. I’m also having to resort to anti-depressants at bedtime, with the occasional sleeping tablet to ensure I can function the next day, together with morning coffee. Then last year Blood pressure medication and now my cholesterol and weight just keeps increasing. I am really at my wits end.”
I explained to Pauline, that although medications do help some women in menopause, they don’t get to the heart of the problem because they don’t solve how the body stays ‘healthy’. The body does this through:
1. being able to sleep all night
2. being able to absorb nutrients through the gut and liver, that matter to our brain health and our immune system
3. being able to maintain hormonal health which changes as we go through our life-stages.
So, Pauline put the MyMT™ plans into action, fitting the sleep routines, nutrition and gut and liver plans around her shift work and her daily life. It sounds like her husband did too – he lost an incredible 14 kgs of weight, following the nutrition plans! When Pauline sent this through, I knew she had achieved what she wanted to achieve… feeling like her old self again and back in control of her health …
“I have now lost 8.5kg and have so much more energy, I wake up earlier and want to get up and extend my day. My stress levels have decreased dramatically, my life is back on track. I haven’t had any sleeping tablets for 4 Months and I have halved my anti-depressants used for sleeping and shutting my brain off. I now use your strategies. Bonus… My husband has lost a massive 14kg and feeling so much healthier. I call it our lifestyle change. We are both feeling so much healthier and fitter. I have far less days feeling yuk; my over-heating problem is much improved at work; my head is clearer and my stress levels have decreased due to my deep breathing and letting go of things that are difficult to change. I no longer take problems on and try to solve them and feel so much more confident in taking charge of my actions now.
I’m just so pleased to be feeling alive again. Can’t wait for my next visit to the Dr. I just wanted to say thank you again for helping in this journey. I certainly would not be where I am without the excellent tools you supplied to turn my health around. Thank you for being on this journey with me. I have no doubt that I would have been still procrastinating if it hadn’t been for you. Forever grateful. [Pauline, 58 yrs, Nelson, NZ]
