We all know that oestrogen has a crucial role to play in all phases of a woman’s life, however little is heard of it’s sister hormone progesterone.
This hormone is super important! Progesterone’s main job is to prepare the womb for a healthy pregnancy but it does so much more than that. It's your calming hormone. It helps you sleep, reduces anxiety and balances out too much oestrogen.
Progesterone works alongside oestrogen in a ...

If you’re looking for an alternative to HRT or just wanting to manage your symptoms naturally, phytoestrogens could be your new best friend!

Phytoestrogens are natural plant compounds that are structurally similar to human oestrogen and can mimic the action of oestrogen in the body.

This is particularly useful in menopause as by including them in your diet, you can trick the body into thinking you have enough circulating oestrogen a...

There's so much attention (deservedly) on the menopause right now, which is great news!

But as menopause is still regarded as something that happens in your fifties, we really need to be talking about 'peri-menopause'.

These are the transition years from when your hormones start to change (as early as your 30's) right up to your final period.

And 80% of women can suffer symptoms ranging from mild to debilitating.

Do you know what Conscious Leadership means?

I didn't until I met Marika Messager. She had a very successful career in the City until she realised something was missing. She went on a journey of self development and discovered her true purpose.

She has since helped many others to become more self aware and therefore become better leaders whether that's of themselves or others.

She's on a mission to embed more 'consci...

Did you know we have all these invisible hormone wreckers around us?

They're called Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals in the science world (just google them and you'll find thousands of studies on them!).

And they're in things we eat, drink, inhale and put on our bodies every single day.

But if we're aware of the big ones, we can do something to minimise our exposure and therefore any damage to our already challenged horm...

After a long and successful entrepreneurial career in the field of diversity and talent management. Heather had big ideas for her 50’s. Along with her friend Sam, they were ready to do a 'Thelma and Louise' and have new adventures (minus the final driving off the cliff!).

But menopause had other ideas.

It's not the most sexy or advanced topic, so we often take it for granted that people are drinking enough water. It's pretty basic, right?

But it's so easy to get it wrong. Especially as we get older. Many of us are walking around dehydrated! And that can have huge repercussions on our health (and hormones!).

Here's my confession, and tips on how to drink enough water for optimal health.
