Menopause Care- Keeping an open mind

Society has a polarised view of menopause treatment, you are either in the ‘HRT’ camp or the ‘natural’ camp. Those who are looking for natural solutions are often vehemently against HRT. And there are some in the HRT camp looking for a quick fix for their symptoms and pay little heed to changing their lifestyle.

In my work with women through menopause it is clear that no one size fits all. Some women will cope well after lifestyle and nutritional changes, sometimes benefitting from a course of acupuncture or yoga classes. Others find that the severity of symptoms exceeds the benefits derived from lifestyle and alternative therapies, and only get true relief with HRT.

But both sides are equally important. For some women struggling to keep down jobs or relationships, HRT can be lifesaving. But women on HRT can also benefit from listening to the other side. Making nutritional and lifestyle changes will optimise how you feel on HRT. Having seen several women start HRT,  improve, but not quite enough, understanding how nutrition and stress affects them and making the right lifestyle choices made the difference. As I tell women, it is impossible to pour from an empty cup. Self-care during midlife is central to wellbeing.

I was former shadow of myself until I met Dr Uddin. I'd become over-weight, depressed and I was barely functioning but immediately after my initial consultation with Dr Uddin, I felt relief. For the first time in a long while, I felt hope and I was able to anchor myself in her care. Dr Uddin is not only highly-qualified but also empathetic and intuitive. She listened and asked all the right questions. Within days I felt better in myself, Just knowing that I had someone that I could trust and that I was finally getting the help I so desperately needed. Dr Uddin provided me with a roadmap map and coached me along the way. I stuck with her 360-degree treatment plan and 6 months later I can honestly say that I don’t know where I’d be today without her. I feel better, wiser and more peaceful about the changes I’m going through. I have so much love, respect and gratitude for Dr Uddin. If you’re looking for professional, holistic support on your journey back to wellness. You’ve found it here. Resh, 2021, yell.com.

Truth is, I’ve had a fairly warped relationship with food ever since I can remember and after 30 years+ of disordered eating and then more recently coming into perimenopause, I felt totally resigned. And, despite the fact that I’d seen therapists in the past, I continued to struggle when it came to implementing and sustaining good habits. Things finally began to shift when I met Sabrina. Sabrina became my north star for all things nutrition. The combination of her expertise, wisdom and deep intuition made her approach to nutritional therapy potent . Sabrina took me under her wing and she was able to help me cut through deep mental barriers. She was able to help me accept myself, where I was in my life and most crucially, she was able to help me to internalise the fact that nutrition is more than food. She helped me understand that food is both life-force and a pleasure to be enjoyed – and on a practical level - she helped me to implement changes specific to my own needs. Today I'm a different person. I'm still on my journey but I'm finally learning a new way and I don't know where I'd be without her. Thank you so so much for showing up for me Sabrina. If you know you need support in altering your relationship with food and in building new habits and routines around food to help you feel better inside and out - you’ve struck gold. Resh, 2021.

I wanted you to know how grateful I am for your help over the last half a year. Despite everything, I wouldn’t give up my experience over that time because of the skills and understanding I’ve gained. Thank you for being a part of that. In particular, thank you for your warmth, non-judgement, and compassion which have helped me relate to myself in a new way.
