A lot of the messages we receive about menopause are negative and most of them aren’t even true. If you feel like society puts you in a box as a woman in midlife, you’re not alone. You and I both know that not every 40-year-old woman fits in the same box. We’re all having unique experiences that come with unique needs, so how do we meet those needs in a world that treats us like we’re all the same?
In this episode, special guest Susana Puelles and I are talking about everything society gets wrong about perimenopause and menopause and what you can really expect from this time in your life. We’re long overdue for some re-education, so why not take matters into our own hands?
Susana Puelles, L.Ac. is a holistic hormone and fertility specialist who has been helping women live in hormonal harmony for over a decade. As a functional and Chinese medicine practitioner and acupuncturist, she helps women reverse decades of damage, replenish reserves to fix their cycles, and live pain and medication-free. After overcoming her own hormone struggles and high-risk pregnancies, she has committed her practice to supporting women holistically throughout their life cycles to embrace change from youth to motherhood and beyond.

What I want you to take away from this episode is that menopause doesn’t have to be something you dread, nor does it have to be something that makes your life miserable.
