Feeling good and being healthy can be tricky when faced with challenges of daily life and an ever-changing and confusing body with hormone-related changes in menstrual cycles and related mood changes, headaches, weight gain, energy levels, sex drive and sleep issues. These changes associated with Perimenopause as well as family medical history, busy schedules and lack of knowledge can increase risk of obesity, diabetes, bone loss, cancer and early heart attack.

  • What are the basics of a healthy lifestyle to maintain even when the schedule is out of control
  • How to think about sex drive and deal with lower than expected sex drive and changing desire
