NUTRITION IN MENOPAUSE

NUTRITION IN MENOPAUSE

As women our bodies are constantly changing with the onset of menopause being one of the biggest hormonal and physical changes.

Menopause is the cessation of the menstrual cycle and the hormones associated with it. Due to these hormonal changes, women become more at risk for metabolic syndrome, obesity, heart disease and osteoporosis. Although there are medical therapies, like hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to treat the side effects of menopause, many women choose to go a more natural route. This is where lifestyle changes, including diet and exercise become very important.

Let’s have a look at the changes that may occur in your body during menopause and what you can do to ensure you are as healthy as possible during this time.

KEEPING COLDS & FLU AT BAY THIS WINTER

KEEPING COLDS & FLU AT BAY THIS WINTER

 As the cold starts to creep in and the peak of winter approaches, avoiding colds and flu in our households are one of our top priorities. Soups and stew are often our go to meals, to keep us warm and cozy, but it is not their only benefit. Healthy food can also be used as an aid to protect us against the common cold. However, getting enough sleep and exercise during the winter months is just as important.  Continuing your healthy lifestyle habits (and yes that includes exercise) that you have built up in the summer months throughout winter can help support a healthy immune system.  This is often easier said than done, so how can we keep up our healthy lifestyle habits during the winter months?
FED UP WITH HUNGER

FED UP WITH HUNGER

A few weeks ago, I was asked the question: “If you could make an impact on the world, what would you do?”. Without any hesitation, I answered “I would make sure that every child has access to at least one nutritious meal a day”. To the tune of Louis Armstrong: “What a wonderful world”. While I will always remain hopeful that we can one day live in a world where this is possible, reality paints a stark contrast. With an ever-growing population, hunger and malnutrition statistics are on the rise, now more than ever before. Sadly, as a nation we have made little to no progress towards eradicating child hunger and the burden of malnutrition continues to cost many South Africans their lives.
