Jenna Moore - Health & Wellbeing MenoMe

I have a passion for helping women with their wellness goals and am a women’s health researcher, author, accredited integrative health coach and nutritional awareness counsellor. A former magazine beauty and wellbeing editor I’ve spent almost my entire career working with women.

When I began experiencing hot flushes, severe anxiety, dizzy spells and debilitating pain I had no idea about perimenopause. Neither did the doctors. It’s one reason I’ve spent six years studying the ‘why’s’ of these symptoms through a functional and lifestyle medicine lens.

I turned my experience around so I hope by sharing what I’ve learned it will help you. For starters, I can tell you menopause is not a disease, it’s a normal, universal female transition. And by working with Mother Nature and taking a multi-pronged approach it can be well managed. I work with 40+ and 55+ because they’re 100% natural, safe and evidence-backed by clinical trials. Scientific testing is important when it comes to supplement choices.  

I’m a member of the International Association of Health Coaches (IAHC) and an associate of The Australasian Society for Lifestyle Medicine (ASLM). I’m also the founder of www.youology.co.nz. It’s a container for a 21-Day Hormone Detox to help 40+ women with weight loss, mindset and skin health.

Post-menopause


This is the time when menstruation is well and truly over, the ovaries have stopped producing high levels of sex hormones and for many ladies, perimenopause symptoms subside.

Estrogen has protective qualities and the diminished levels mean organs such as your brain, heart and bones become more vulnerable. It’s also a key lubricant so your lips may become drier, your joints less supple and your vagina might be drier. In addition, your thyroid, digestion, insulin, cortisol and weight may alter.

At this juncture, a woman might experience an increase in the signs of reduced estrogen but she should have a decrease of perimenopause symptoms. That said, some women will experience symptoms like hot flushes for years or even the rest of their lives.

Perimenopause

Peri = ‘near’

Most females begin to experience the symptoms of perimenopause in their mid-forties. Your progesterone levels decline from your mid-30s but it’s generally from around 40 that the rest of your sex hormones begin to follow suit. 

Perimenopause is a different experience for every woman and some women may barely notice it. The first indicators are usually changes to the monthly cycle. This means that for some ladies, this can be accompanied by things like sore breasts, mood swings, weight gain around the belly, and fatigue as time goes on.

For those with symptoms it can be a challenging time physically, mentally and emotionally.

Importantly, perimenopause lasts – on average – four to 10 years. The transition is usually a gradual process and many women enter perimenopause without realising.
