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. We’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. 

Every woman’s experience of the menopause is different,” says Norma Goldman, founder and director of The Menopause Exchange. “Learning about others’ experiences, and what worked for them, may help you ease your own menopause symptoms more easily. You won’t know if something’s going to work for you unless you try it.” 

The Menopause Exchange, which was established in 1999, is completely independent and is not sponsored by any companies. It provides impartial, easily understood information to women and healthcare professionals. The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter contains articles written by top medical experts, such as gynaecologists, GPs, consultants, specialist menopause nurses, pharmacists, dietitians, complementary practitioners etc. 

Other articles in the Spring 2017 newsletter include HRT ques- tions you forgot to ask your GP, cystitis and thrush at the menopause and looking after your oral health, as well as recent news, book reviews and Ask the Experts Q&As. 

The Menopause Exchange quarterly newsletter is available via email for free.
