She’s not only a nurse consultant but also the founder and director of Flux State Limited, a supportive platform helping women to comprehend their bodies, empower their minds, and confidently navigate through menopause. Tune in for a conversation that combines health, wealth, and wisdom!
The central theme of the podcast today is the intersection of menopause, health, and financial security. The conversation starts with Catherine sharing her experience of menopause and her professional background in women’s health. She highlights that she also had fertility treatment for her son due to an acute pain condition called endometriosis. She also shares her struggles with anxiety, insomnia, and a challenging work-life balance.
The podcast then moves into a discussion of menopause and its impact on women’s financial situations. Catherine asserts that menopause can be a threat to women’s financial security if they are not adequately supported during this period.
Catherine suggests that understanding and addressing these symptoms can help women continue to work and maintain their financial security. She explains that hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be beneficial for women who are unable to or do not wish to take HRT.
We also cover the topic of diet, with Catherine recommending a healthy diet and regular movement or exercise to help manage menopausal symptoms and the importance of self-compassion and mindfulness during this period.
