Episode 5...Even if it feels like it in your body, you're not crazy! You're just swimming in a hormonal soup called mid-life.
In fact, you're a perfectly normal middle-aged gal doing your damnedest to keep up with life - kids, work, partner or spouse, aging parents, a pandemic, body changes...you know all the things life is throwing at you.
Today on the Savor Food and Body Podcast, I'm talking with Jenn Salib Huber, a Canadian Naturopathic Doctor, and Registered Dietitian, who's on a mission to help women thrive in midlife.
In practice for more than 16 years, Jenn helps women navigate the physical and emotional changes that happen in perimenopause and menopause, including their search for food freedom and body confidence.
Working from a Health At Every Size® approach, she teaches women to become intuitive eaters and build body confidence in their 30's 40's and 50's. Well-versed in the integrative treatment options available to women in mid-life, Jenn helps women come up with a treatment strategy that meets their unique needs for better menopause.
Jenn strongly believes that women need to come together to normalize this experience and offers online programs to help women feel their best. Her online program The Thinking Woman's Guide to Peri/Menopause is open to women in any stage of perimenopause and menopause who are looking to regain confidence in their bodies and themselves.
