Ageing past the menopause

No-one can escape the effects of ageing on the body, but it is possible to reduce the risk of noticeable changes

PRESS RELEASE

For immediate release: 2 May 2012

Ageing past the menopause

The female body begins to age from as early as the age of 30, although we don’t necessarily notice any physical changes until much later on. The most visible changes affect the skin and hair, although ageing also has a significant impact on the brain and mind. If you are approaching or going through the menopause, there is plenty that you can do to reduce the risks of damage.

In the Spring 2012 issue of The Menopause Exchange newsletter, gerontologist and anti-ageing expert Dr Marios Kyriazis looks at the effects of ageing at and around the time of the menopause. He concentrates on skin and hair changes (e.g. wrinkles and thinning hair) and memory problems, with advice on ways to combat the ageing process.

“No-one can escape the effects of ageing on the body, but it is possible to reduce the risk of noticeable changes,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “In his article, Dr Kyriazis discusses the role of food supplements, skin and hair products and cosmetic surgery.”

The Menopause Exchange is completely independent – it’s not sponsored by any companies and is funded purely by subscriptions from individuals and healthcare professionals. Other articles in the Spring 2012 issue include who can’t take HRT?, bladder symptoms at the menopause and ovarian cancer. We have also included information on the talks and seminars given by Norma Goldman to women, healthcare professionals and organisations.

Take a look at Norma Goldman’s video ‘The Menopause – keep your cool’ on the home page of The Menopause Exchange website to hear general information on the menopause. Benefit from her top ten tips on how to cope with your symptoms, with information on HRT, complementary therapies and self-help lifestyle measures.
