Thriving Through Menopause With Expert Kristin Mallon

The medical term menopause refers to a single day: the day a woman has had 12 months without a menstrual cycle. Still, women experience many changes in their bodies and physiology in the years before that day and, of course, after that day.

So, what's the best way to deal with this widely misunderstood part of so many people’s lives?In today's episode, I'm thrilled to welcome back the healthcare visionary and Co-Founder and CEO of FemGevity, Kristin Mallon, to discuss the importance of seeking multiple perspectives and personalized care to deal with perimenopause and postmenopause. She believes menopause is a time for women to thrive, not just survive, and her mission is turning menopause into a transformative journey towards growth, vitality, and lasting health.

You'll hear about the use of "menopause" as an overarching term, why OB/GYNs might have a limited view of menopause care, and the multiple symptoms of peri and postmenopause. Kristin also debunks the myths around hormone replacement treatments, the sexual changes of menopause, what taking estrogen does to your body, and much more.
