Health & lifestyle tips for the menopause
The Menopause Exchange asked its members for health and lifestyle tips on coping with menopausal symptoms. The comments we received covered a wide range of topics, from diet and exercise to hobbies and complementary therapies. Weâ€™ve published a selection of comments in the Spring 2017 issue of our quarterly newsletter, but we do have a lot more available. We include practical lifestyle tips in each issue of The Menopause Exchange.
â€śEvery womanâ€™s experience of the menopause is different,â€ť says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. â€śLearning about othersâ€™ experiences, and what worked for them, may help you ease your own menopause symptoms more easily. You wonâ€™t know if somethingâ€™s going to work for you unless you try it.â€ť
If journalists would like to read more of our membersâ€™ health and lifestyle tips, they should contact us directly via firstname.lastname@example.org. All tips should be attributed to The Menopause Exchange members.
