Nutritional therapy is a new service offered by Marjorie, who is also a skin therapist specializing in skin treatments. This will be run alongside the new venture.
“I have recently trained in nutrition so that I can bring deeper changes to people’s lives, being in my 50’s I relate to women’s struggles in midlife and I am passionate in supporting them deal with the symptoms and health challenges menopause brings.”
Menopause brings many challenges, physical, emotional and mental, with her training and experience Marjorie has the tool box to tackle these with gradual nutrition and lifestyle changes.
The range of embarrassing and debilitating symptoms includes; hot flushes and night sweats that can lead insomnia, fatigue, difficulty concentrating, anxiety, low mood, and not surprisingly decreased libido!
’ A lack of knowledge and some denial doesn't help women face the menopause positively. It’s been a taboo subject, thankfully things are changing with many celebrities getting involved increasing awareness’ Marjorie said.
Nutritional therapy is a natural holistic approach, addressing the root cause of symptoms with food and lifestyle advice uniquely tailored to the individual. Marjorie says ‘This is not a one size fits all approach, as everyone is different due to our genetics and our lifestyles. There’s a lot we can do to address imbalances with food and lifestyle changes’
‘let thy food be thy medicine and thy medicine be thy food’ the quote attributed to Hippocrates demonstrates this is not a new idea, however the quality and variety of our food and hectic lifestyles don’t always make this happen.
Statistics show the association between menopausal symptoms and lower quality of life impacting on absenteeism and productivity. Many companies are now increasing awareness of menopause to help women be more open and avoid prejudice and potential discrimination at work.
Menopause is a natural process, however in the West we tend to suffer more debilatating symptoms due to differences in nutrition and culture. Eastern cultures value the wisdom of old age calling the menopause a ‘Second Spring’ Marjorie seeks to capture this helping menopausal women get there mojo back!
